Pinterest Battle of the Decades - the 1970's

This is the decade of my childhood. My memories of the 1970's are the good kind that you are supposed to have when thinking about growing up. I was completely oblivious to any of the negativity that people often associate with the decade. I wasn't worried about gas shortages, Watergate, Vietnam, or that disco sucked. I was too busy being a kid and having fun.

The first 1970's Pinterest board I'd like to share is my own. I have put a great deal of time into accumulating over 300 pins that offer a fairly thorough representation of the decade.

There is this board by Mary Howells that has over 160 pins but what makes it stand out is the frequent detailed descriptions below the pictures. Plus, she has a video the legendary "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" commercial.

Check out this 1970's board by Deby Doerhoff. It contains over 300 pinned items and features many fashion and home interior pictures.

Finally, there is this very extensive 1970's board from Evreux France. It contains over 800 pins and covers all aspects of life in the 1970's. The highlight of this board is the extensive collection of videos featuring the best music from the decade.

From this point on I become a biased observer due to the fact that I was alive and kicking from this decade on. As stated earlier, my recollection of the 1970's was through the rose colored glasses of a child so I am far from a fair judge of this time period. Were the 70's your favorite? Comment below or at least participate in the poll at the top of the page.
