Crosswalk On Beatles Album Cover Gets A Touch Up

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. It is probably the most famous crosswalk in the world. It's on London's Abbey Road. And it's the setting for that iconic Beatles album cover.

But now the city is on lockdown, and city workers have taken advantage to give it a fresh coat of paint. It's bright white again, ready for brighter days in London.
