Famed Abbey Road street sign up for auction

An Abbey Road street sign once displayed near the famous street crossing shown on the Beatles' final album is up for auction.

The enamelled steel sign, which was installed near the world-famous St John's Wood zebra crossing six years ago, was removed in 2007 because graffiti messages from Beatles' fans could not be scrubbed off.

...Westminster Council is selling the disused sign on eBay to raise money for transport projects across the city.

It should be noted, however, that the sign is not featured on the cover of the Beatles LP.

See the auction here.
