In the summer of 1978 I spent one of the best times of my life in London. We visited "The Crossing" on August 5th. Just a wonderful memory! I landed on your site after searching Procol Harum information. Finding their hilarious photo of PH "crossing" ruins at Pompeii lead me somehow to your site. I don't know how that happened! Anyway, that lead me to contact my crossing-mate Jonas (he's first in line, in the "John" spot.) Jonas had arranged for some good soul to take our picture whilst crossing. Upon finding your site I asked Jonas to digitize our yellowed photos which he did. It reminded that this magic visit took place long before any internet was available! Others in the picture are Mike (from Wash. DC) Me, Gary Frank from Bayside, NY, (I was of course in the Paul-spot...out of step and proud of it....not barefoot...I loved my new London bought Clarks shoes!) There is also my college girlfriend Audrey stepping off the curb reluctantly - last but not least. She subsequently married a doctor, (not me!) It happens!.............
|.............I came to London again in 1985, with my wonderful wife Lynn, but on that occasion didn't manage to visit Abbey Road again. Finding your site was such a treat. I sent it to many family and friends old and young. Also enclosed are photos of me on the steps of the studio. Note the same "Abbey Road Studio EMI" sign as seen in the famous photo of the Beatles sitting on the steps............|
........AND a photo of me in front of Tower Bridge, to evoke the "London Town" McCartney album. Cuter, younger, and with far more hair! If you care to include our crossing photo I would be thrilled. My thanks for a great site. I hope I can return to London and visit someday. Gary Frank.

Hi, we all crossed while visiting London on August 8, 2009. The picture above is me - Charlie Santos, with Allison Santos, Edith Rojas and Stephanie Sarmiento. Exactly 40 years to the day from when the original picture was taken............
