Flashback: The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album cover shot

It was 40 years ago today (March 30th, 1967) that the Beatles posed for their famous Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.

Peter Blake … created the scene of the group being flanked by their audience, using mainly cardboard cut-out photographs of famous people.

Among the many 72 faces featured in the cover are Lenny Bruce, W.C. Fields, Edgar Allan Poe, psychoanalyst Carl Jung, Dion, Fred Astaire, Bob Dylan, Aldous Huxley, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Karl Marx, original Beatles bassist Stuart Sutcliffe, Oscar Wilde, Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, and Shirley Temple.
