Historical footnote of major cultural importance

Friday was the 40th anniversary of the shooting of the cover photo for "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Inspired by Victorian-era composite photographs, Dada collage artists, and Pop artist Richard Hamilton's surreal cut-and-paste suburban scenes, the "Sgt. Pepper" cover has become a visual touchstone.
And besides that, it had some "Paul is dead" clues.
