#TBT: Take a Photographic Trip Back Through the Summer of Love

By

It was the summer of 1967. One hundred thousand free spirits convened in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury to commune around their common pursuit of peace, love, and happiness. The soundtrack: psychedelic rock provided by local bands—you know, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Janis Joplin's Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane. This was SF hippie culture, and the time period remains the single most iconic moment in SF history. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, 7x7 takes a strange trip back to that unforgettable year.
