45 Fascinating Color Photographs That Capture Boston Youth Fashion in the Early 1970s

Fashion in the 1970s began with a continuation of the mini skirts, bell-bottoms, and the androgynous hippie look from the late 1960s and eventually became an iconic decade for fashion. Nick Dewolf was promptly to document images of American teenagers on Boston streets in the early 1970s.

Nick DeWolf (July 12, 1928 – April 16, 2006) was an engineer and entrepreneur who founded a company called Teradyne. In his spare time he was also cataloging his life with a camera. His son-in-law and archivist, Steve Lundeen, is scanning DeWolf’s complete archive and making it available on Flickr.
“I (the Archivist) am working to post Nick’s images in their original sets as they are scanned and processed, somewhere in the order of 20-50 images a day. For those wondering about an endgame, as in ‘How much longer can this possibly go on?’, I can only answer, ‘The mountain is high, the journey is long.’” – says Steve Lundeen
