The Rolling Stones Sit on the Street in Front of an Apartment Block and a ‘No Parking’ Sign

It may not look much, but what you’re looking at is actually the very first photograph taken of the legendary English rock band The Rolling Stones.

This photo was taken just shortly after the band was formed in 1962 by celebrity photographer Philip Townsend. Of this Townsend was quoted to have said, “I stuck them in the middle of Ifield road with a no parking sign. It was the first picture that had ever been taken of them together.” After, he and the band rode in his car and went around London to take some more photographs.
