Haight-Ashbury, 1967. Fifty years on, the very phrase conjures up all manner of clichés and fantasies about the sixties—media-fueled exaggerations spun out of actual events. Photographer Herb Greene was there when it all went down. Explore how his warm, genuine images dispense with the clichés and give us a glimpse of what a stroll down Haight Street in the summer of 1967 was actually like.
