A Petition for Haight Street

A Petition for Haight Street

San Francisco: Communication Company, [1967]. 8 1/2 x 11" flyer, mimeographed from typescript.

A rare petition handbill printed by the Communication Company, calling for Haight Street be closed to vehicular traffic from Stanyan Street to Masonic Street during the weekends to ease overcrowding. Given that most examples would likely have been filled out and turned in, this is one of the more elusive flyers from the group, and a rare artifact from the Summer of Love addressing urban planning.

The verso of this example is completely filled with drawings and handwritten text in blue ballpoint ink in an unknown hand, with two small marker scribbles to recto. Item #29887

Price: $125.00
