Entertaining Historical Images From The Groovy Era: 60's & 70's

Culture |

The ’60s and ’70s were a two of the most influential decades in history for fashion, music, and individuality. Yes, it was a crazy time, but it was a time of love and individualistic styles as well. It’s known as the Groovy Era and it was a time full of incredibly unique characters that just couldn’t help but to spread joy. From film, television, music, and theater, the whole lot of them were in on the groove that just drove people wild (sometimes a little too wild…. looking at you, Woodstock). We’ve gathered loads of nostalgic photos from those era that will make you miss those days, even if you were born long after.

1. Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda found her stardom during the 1960's with films such as "Cat Ballou" and "They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?" Newsday called her “the loveliest and most gifted” of the actresses at the time. Before she knew it, she became an internationally-recognized sex symbol. In this picture, Fonda is seen shopping at a local grocery store in the late ’60s. Fonda grew to even greater heights in the ’80s with her first exercise video, which shockingly became the highest-selling VHS ever. She went on to make 22 more exercise videos and a slew of successful movies. Fonda is currently starring in the Netflix original series Grace and Frankie, opposite Lily Tomlin.

2. The Beatles

The Beatles weren’t just a band; they were a revolution and one of the biggest music acts of not only the Groovy Era but all time. They formed in 1960 and consisted of band members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

The Beatles single-handedly created a new culture in the 1960s and swept everyone away with Beatlemania. The band is the best-selling group in the history of music, having sold over 800 million albums. All four members have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
