NW8, Abbey Road, 3, Abbey Studios

Abbey Road Studios were opened in November 1931 by EMI.

A live webcam has been set up on the boundary wall pointing at that pedestrian crossing. Londonist posted this lyrical short film about the crossing.

We've read that when George Harrison died members of the studio set up huge speakers at the front and played 'All Things Must Pass' to the crowds of mourners.
