I don’t know about you, but when I think of the era between the 60’s to the 90’s, I’m taken back to a much simpler time. I think of punk rockers with flowers in their hair, peace and love, mom jeans, hippies, strong women and great music.
However, our society has evolved over time and that period is now a thing of the past. So how does one go back? Or learn of the different world that once existed, or even just to know what kind of news made headlines back then? Well, look no further because regardless of which decade you prefer, we have accumulated some historical pictures. Lets begin…
Jimi Hendrix At The “Love & Peace Festival” In Germany, 1970
It’s the legend himself, wearing hot pink, better than any other man could. This photo was captured before Jimi’s last show at the Love & Peace Festival, on an island called Fehmarn, in the middle of the Baltic Sea.
The late Hendrix performed on the final night of the festival with a two-piece backing band and those who were there, probably didn’t realize how significant this performance would be.
As soon as his performance was finished, a helicopter took the Rockstar to London. A few days later, Jimi Hendrix passed away on the 18th of September 1970. A true rock and roll legend, taken too soon.
Oprah In The Early 1970s
The year 1970 was definitely a crazy journey for a small town girl who would soon become a world-wide icon. Trying her best to break into the TV business, Oprah did just about everything she could possibly do on local TV.
She had been a host on a local talk show, a news anchor, there was a time where you could even dial her up for dollars. Each job she did, only strengthened her camera skills. Finally, she caught her big break when she was sent to WLS-TV in Chicago and since then, well… you know the rest.
