Overview

The 1950s, 60s, and 70s were defining moments in our nation’s history, and San Francisco was at the forefront of the avant-garde artistic, intellectual, and cultural movements of the time. San Francisco gave rise to the most significant countercultural revolutions of the century, including the Beatniks of the 1950s, the hippies in the 1960s, and the gay rights movement in the 1970s. This volume, Historic Photos of San Francisco in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, captures the revolutionary and tumultuous spirit of these historic times in stunning black-and-white photography. The book provides a retrospective view of ordinary citizens enjoying their daily lives in an extraordinary city, and illustrates the participants, protests, riots, triumphs, and tragedies of this extraordinary period in San Francisco and American history.
