Haight-Ashbury in 1976

Detailed map of Haight-Ashbury, which was issued with the February 26, 1976 edition of Rolling Stone Magazine.

The map celebrates decade following the summer of Summer of Love, where the Haight has already become a place of "pilgrimage". Complimenting an article that follows up on the characters of the area, this double page map shows the key spots from the Diggers store, to Janis Joplin's apartment (112 Lyon St. #27) and the Grateful Dead House (710 Ashland St.).
