John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr crossing Derby Square in Liverpool City Centre

John, George, and Ringo were photographed on a zebra crossing (which no longer exists). Today, Derby Square is pedestrianised and traffic is channelled to by pass the square itself. The Victoria monument remains as it was when the photograph was taken.
