*Lyrics excerpt* - "If you're going to San Francisco.... Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."

During that turbulent decade known as the "Psychedelic 60's" - The city of San Francisco was, literally, alive and buzzing with a nirvana-like ambiance never, ever seen before.

From love-ins, to dropping acid, to political protests, to Haight Ashbury, to Hell's Angels, and beyond - San Francisco glowed like a cultural beacon, beckoning the "turned-on" youth-of-the-day (who arrived by the droves) to enter through its golden gates and join in on all of the "flower power" that was blossoming everywhere.

Featuring 100 carefully selected photographs - This glossy book, pretty much, speaks for itself, telling a vivid story, through its images, of a radical era in time that has, long ago, faded away into pop-culture history.

"For those who come to San Francisco..... Summertime will be a love-in there."
