Reportedly, there are "at least" 11 Abbey Roads in London. This is causing devoted fans of The Beatles, eager to take an iconic cross-walk photo like that from the cover of Abbey Road, only to find themselves in the wrong neighbourhood.
Christie Johnson, a semi-professional soccer player, said she wasn't too disappointed to have gone to the wrong Abbey Road, explaining that she wasn't that big of a Beatles fan anyway.
She said she mostly just wanted a picture of herself on the famous crosswalk to show her friends. Now, she'll have a different story to tell.
"I'll say we tried," she said. "It'll get a good laugh."
At the London Beatles Store, which sells Fab Four memorabilia, owner Howard Cohen said the mix-up over the location of the studio is not new -- because there are so many Abbey Roads in London -- but that the mishaps have been exacerbated by the new Abbey Road Station in a distant part of the capital.
