Abbey Road print sold

The auctioned print
The aforementioned Abbey Road outtake photo print has sold for £16,000 at the auction yesterday afternoon. The photograph was expected to sell for around £9,000, but ended up going for £7,000 more than that after frenzied bidding took place at the Bloomsbury auction house in central London. Initially bidding began at £6,000, but quickly escalated and ended up with a figure of £16,000 in less than one minute, NME reports. Snap Galleries in London were selling them for a fraction of that only last month, London Beatles tour guide Richard Porter mentioned on Facebook today. Meanwhile, a better version of the same photo has been on display at TheBeatles.com since 2009. What was all the fuzz about?
