Item #1049

Before there was social media, there were snail mail lists. This large binder is filled with over 55 pieces of gay related ephemera which date from about 1967 to 1981, with most from the late 1960s and early 1970s. All of the brochures, pamphlets and advertising leaflets in this collection were sent to the same man who lived in Philadelphia, with a couple sent to him at an address in Buffalo, NY. Most come with the envelopes which help date the items, and several seem to be in response to letters that he sent asking for more information. Most of the items come from San Francisco, NYC, Florida, with a few from Michigan and Canada. There are lists sent from Booksellers with listing of erotic and physical culture material, dating info, responses from the Advocate magazine, info on ordering photos and films, leaflets from gay resorts, etc. Items included, in no particular order:
