Basement Party Set – 1970

Time for another set of party photos from under someone's house that i know happened in 1970. I don't know where, or why they choose to party in their basement, but there we go. There's lots going on here to keep you amused, and a few inappropriate costumes to make you wince (we're not here to judge, just to document).

What I like about these big sets of photos is seeing the same faces multiple times and trying to build a story of their night as it progresses. It looks like a huge basement either way, and there's several great costumes on show as well as plenty of vintage decorations on view. These days people would probably want a specialised venue that looked the part, but back then, bare rafters and ventilation pipes were nothing to be ashamed of, especially if there was a party to be had.
