Today marks the final ever photo session for The Beatles

Today, August 22nd, marks the 49th anniversary of the last time John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr were photographed together. Although in the ensuing years, the members spent time together in every conceivable combination -- they, sadly, never again were captured together all at once.

The band -- with a heavily pregnant Linda McCartney only days away from delivering her and Paul's first child together, Mary -- met up with photographer Ethan Russell at John Lennon and Yoko Ono's massive English estate Tittenhurst Park to take promo shots for their forthcoming Abbey Road album.

Photos from that day have been seen widely and were featured on both the front and back covers of the band's 1970 Hey Jude compilation.
