The Magical History Tour: Nostalgia as the Dominant Cultural Trend of the Late 1960s

Presented with Coworkrs Flatiron


The Sixties are forever billed as being ‘revolutionary’, the boomer generation forever feted for creating ‘newness’ in everything from fashion to film.  In the half century since it all happened, we have been so brainwashed into believing that the era was a decade of ‘firsts’ that we’ve becoming blind to the incredibly obvious reality: the Late 1960s was fueled by nostalgia, the young of the era embracing and then contorting Victorian, Edwardian, and Wild Western themes and aesthetics to make a socio-political statement that was far stronger than had they actually done something ‘new’.
