I like when photos really speak of an era, and this whole chart-sized book of photos for use in a classroom really exemplifies the late 60s/early 70s for me [probably because that's where i spent a lot of time during those years]. This was used as a resource for schools in order to elicit open-ended reactions and promote sociology discussions, i assume. I think that the photos are interesting because they each have a creative/fun element, as well as showing issues which were considered important at the time. They are provocative, but not antagonistic.
