San Francisco in the Summer of 1971

San Francisco in the 1970s was a global hub of culture. It was known worldwide for hippies and radicals. The city was heavily affected by drugs, prostitution and crime. Outcasts and the socially marginalized were attracted by a greater tolerance and acceptability of multi-cultures in the city. It grew as one of world's biggest centres for the LGBT community and LGBT rights.

The Daily Mail described flamboyant 70s San Francisco as being characterized by "hippy street life when buskers, bongo players and impressive bouffants thronged the city by the bay."
