Interesting/Fun pics...  
Check this out. Before and after pics. I'm vaguely interested, in my copious spare time (*eyeroll*), to put one together myself. I think some of y'all should do this, too, it's cute and fun.

The second most famous photograph taken at the Abbey Road Studios is of the elderly Sir Edward Elgar and a teenaged Yehudi Menuhin, who had just recorded Elgar's Violin Concerto under the composer's baton:

Years later, when Menuhin was all growed up and flapping, he re-recorded the Concerto in stereo with Sir Adrian Boult conducting, and of course the photo was re-created at the same site. And even later, when Menuhin was mostly doing conducting and teaching, he conducted a recording of the work with a teenaged Asian violinist. If it weren't minutes before I need to get some work done here at the office, I might be able to find those other pics, and the name of the young fiddler too. But you get the point.

I found remake picture #1 on eBay, and have hidden it behind a link because it's kinda large.
