George Harrison on the cover of ‘Abbey Road’

George Harrison is the "casual Beatle" on the cover of The Beatle's 1969 album Abbey Road. From left, the Fab Four are: George Harrison (jeans and denim shirt), Paul McCartney (business suit and barefoot), Ringo Starr (fancy black suit), and John Lennon (white suit and hair galore).

The album name is a nod to the EMI Studios at Abbey Road, where The Beatles recorded many of their greatest hits; the photo was taken by Iain Macmillan at a "zebra crossing" near the studios. The album was unusual in that it did not include the name of the band or of the album on the front cover.
