Iconic Abbey Road sign of Beatles fame to be sold at auction

Street signs from the iconic Abbey Road and other notable central London locations are to be flogged at auction by Westminster Council.

Abbey Road became internationally famous as the home of the Beatles’ recording studio, especially after they recorded their timeless album named after the road in 1969.

The cover of the album contained a picture of the fab four crossing a zebra crossing on the street, which is now one of the most famous shots ever taken of the band.

It’s one of more than 200 street signs that will go under the hammer, including for Pimlico Road, Westbourne Park Road, Belgrave Place and Bateman Street in Soho.

The council revealed that some of the signs include typing errors and were never used, such as an erroneous “Dutchess Street” sign intended for Duchess Street in Marylebone.

The sales could net tens of thousands of pounds for the council.
