An out take from the famous Abbey Road photo shoot with The Beatles. <br />
<br />
Rare photographs of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road shot for the cover of the last album they recorded together have emerged for sale for £70,000.<br />
<br />
The six snaps were rejected as possible covers of the Beatles' famed Abbey Road album released in September 1969, just months before they split up.<br />
<br />
They were taken by Scots photographer Iain Macmillan, a close friend of John Lennon, who balanced precariously on a ladder in the middle of the road in north London for the shoot.<br />
<br />
He had just 10 minutes to get his shot so he got the Fab Four to walk back and forth continuously over the now famous zebra crossing.<br />
<br />
Also for sale is the photo that became the back cover of the album - a road sign with a blurred person in the foreground.<br />
<br />
Experts say the photos could make £70,000 when they go under the hammer at Bloomsbury Auctions.
