Do You Remember… Posters
Did you used to buy posters when you were growing up in the 60’s and 70’s?
I remember going to Holiday Mart’s record department and checking out the posters on the big poster rack. It looked something like this.
I especially loved black-light posters but I never could afford a black-light so it was a waste of money buying them. But I bought them anyway.
I remember one that I had was a ghost ship on black velvet paper. Looked something like this:
And of course, I had to have the Keep on Truckin’ poster:
Had the girls too:
I thought this one was pretty cool – so I bought it:
And here’s one that I had posted on the back of our bathroom door – which was directly across the toilet. You couldn’t help but read it every time you sat down. * Be sure to read the last step
How many of you had this classic poster hanging up in your room?
I know I had a lot more posters. These are just some of the ones I remember. IIRC, they were $2 each.
Anyone remember the black-light room at DJ’s Sound City at Ala Moana Center? That was a cool place to check out posters. And Records Hawaii had quite a collection of posters too.
