Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Alexandra Road


This is the location for the back cover of the Abbey Road album. The photo was taken at the junction of Abbey Road and Alexandra Road (now gone). I have superimposed the back cover photo over an old fan photo from 1969, click to enlarge. Alexandra Road, the street sign and the surrounding buildings were demolished to make way for the "Abbey Road" housing estate in the early 1970s.

Is it a stupid question but, could the girl in the photo with the guy at the sign be the same girl that appears on the back cover?
