Old Handbills

I collected these handbills in San Francisco in 1974. They are basically just very cheap prints advertising rock concerts and other underground events, handed out to people in the streets. Now they are collectors items, and if you Google “handbills” you will see some very fine ones. I actually used to make posters and drawings to my friends using this special style, with letters almost impossible to read for people that are not “tuned in” 🙂 In 1974 the hippies on Haight-Ashbury were long gone. Many of them had moved out to small villages and farms in the country, and left back were only poor drug addicts.
