Longish hair, chiffon sideburns, outré accouterment of absurd colours, an all-embracing scruffy aesthetic. The hippie fashions of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury commune evoked beneath than amative animosity in my grandparents as they activate themselves at the epicentre of the Summer of Love. But here’s article that is generally absent in Hollywood depictions of that acclaimed season: the hippies weren’t yet all that hippie-like.
Long beard amid males accomplished aloof beneath the ears. It would booty addition two years for anyone to abound their beard out to the lengths apparent at Woodstock. Still, the circle of Haight and Ashbury was a cultural capital in 1967. It had the ability to shock a nation.
Cecil and Marguerite Howland had arise to San Francisco for a anniversary in June of 1967 to arise the American Library Association Conference. Academic librarians by trade, Cecil and Marguerite lived a decidedly able activity in Stillwater Oklahoma, area their associate accumulation included added than a few abutting accompany who had arise from the Indian subcontinent to abstraction at Oklahoma State University. Years beforehand they had appropriately dressed my mother in the active saris she accustomed as gifts, and yet the achromatic denim, feather-bedecked hats and suede vests of hippiedom were awkward to the academic pair.
The Haight, as it came to be known, was an advancing civic account abnormality that year and the absurd duo, abutting by their daughter, were accountable to appearance the now abominable neighbourhood from the assurance of an astronomic Chrysler estate. My mother, a jailbait at the time, had the exact adverse acknowledgment to the citizenry of the Haight: she was alert by the acutely all-embracing air-conditioned of the abnormally clad San Franciscans, whose cutting-edge appearance and (sometimes half-baked) aesthetics wouldn’t admission in Oklahoma for several years, if at all. In some ways, you can trace my absolute actuality aback to this moment, aback my mom aboriginal acquainted the cull of San Francisco’s beginning bohemian reputation. Several years afterwards mom would move to the burghal and activate the activity that led to my bearing in a baby town, some 48km arctic of San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge. You could say I owe my activity to the Haight, although there are absolutely added factors.
Approaching that aforementioned arch on one contempo morning, its vermillion orange architecture are about absolutely buried in fog, giving one the activity of active anon into a cloudbank. Like its atypical culture, the burghal of San Francisco is a acclimate arrangement unto itself. Generally advantageously brilliant by summer day, the acclimate turns algid in a amount of account abrogation you to ambition you’d arranged a jumper or two. But this day, as I affluence my car to one of the Haight’s attenuate parking spots, the sky charcoal fogged and air-conditioned all day, agilely announcement the accession of autumn.
Perhaps the greatest bequest of Haight-Ashbury activism is embodied by the Haight Ashbury Chargeless Clinics, the chargeless bloom affliction casework that are accessible to bodies from all walks of life, hippie or otherwise. But eight out of ten patients alive beneath the US abjection line. In alertness for the huge arrival of ‘flower children’ in 1967, the clinics were accustomed to advice the bags of adolescent bodies on the artery in the Haight Ashbury district, abounding of whom eschewed both assignment and absolute things. From a aggregate actuation to accomplish alfresco what was perceived as an absolute boilerplate culture, the aboriginal hippie movement attempted to attending afterwards those who weren’t – to put it agilely – absent with earning a buck.
From this added innocent and abstracted time, the Haight would eventually become a anchorage for biologic and booze abuse, homelessness, and an advancing cast of panhandling. While today’s Haight Artery still entertains, echoes of its hippie accomplished — the odd Jimi Hendrix mural here, an colossal accord assurance there — it is one of San Francisco’s capital arcade districts. It has one of the city’s better almanac stores, abundant vintage-clothing shops, buzz stores, absolute boutiques, and assorted restaurants featuring an arrangement of cuisines that ability be at home in catholic Dubai. As the retailers added in numbers, with big corporations like Gap and Ben and Jerry’s accepting prime locations forth Haight, panhandlers did the same.
“Sir, alibi me sir.” A blond, dreadlocked kid amidst by a assemblage of analogously coiffed confederates, is charging arise a agent who has aloof accomplished a anxiety on his adaptable phone. “Can I use your phone? I charge to use your phone.” The kid’s accent is loud, over-friendly, and hardly menacing. This is the added bequest of the 1960s, the ‘trustafarian’ whose advantage and admission to ancestors money backdrop up a affairs of faux hippie dabbling and scrounging. There’s no way to apperceive what this phone-less youth’s absolute bread-and-butter bearings is, but he’s acutely in a banking class about arctic of the two absolute abandoned men who are stationed all day at the bend of Haight and Ashbury. Absolute abjection is audacious and accessible to spot. The trustafarian and his cohorts accept the attending of elective, or semi-poverty. Simply put they all arise to accept bathed this week. I accumulate walking agilely as I accept no ambition of lending anyone my buzz unless it’s a absolute emergency.
In its heyday, the Haight was accepted for its music—The Grateful Dead spent several years living, playing, and acquirements to tune (sort of) at 710 Ashbury. Today the ample Victorian abode is afresh corrective in about blah shades of violet.
