Preface by David Bieber
Take another, even deeper trip to the Boston of yesteryear, guided by advertisements for the businesses and characters that made the city tick in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s – restaurants, hair salons, bands, bars, clothing boutiques and much, much more.
Following in the footsteps of the acclaimed first volume, Buy Me, Boston Volume 2 features more than 600 vintage advertisements, posters and flyers. These images have been scanned from original sources, including issues of The Boston Phoenix, The Real Paper, The Bay State Banner, Old Mole, The Avatar, Broadside, Boston After Dark, Boston Rock and many more, straight from the stockpiles of renowned archivists and historians like David Bieber, Kay Bourne, Chuck White, Wayne Valdez, Willie "Loco" Alexander and Erik Lindgren.
Compiled and curated by journalist and historian Brian Coleman, Buy Me, Boston Volume 2 is a unique, time-traveling journey. Whether you patronized these establishments and happenings the first time around, or just want to know more about our unique town and the people whose energy and creativity fuels it, this book guarantees smiles with the turn of every new page.
