History, as defined by Merriam Webster, is the study of past events, particularly human affairs. Here at Groovy History, we like to put our own spin on things, bringing you the most rad, psychedelic and you guessed it, groovy pictures from the 20th century. No matter what decade you're from, no matter if you're a flower child or disco baby, Groovy History has something for you. Here are some of the rarest and most fascinating pictures from our collection.

The Original and Best Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter

Back in the 1970s, Miss World America Lynda Carter scored the role of a lifetime; Wonder Woman. From 1975 to 1979 Carter was the first mainstream female superhero and quickly became a household name. She proved to the public at a time where women were still largely considered ‘delicate’ in nature, that a woman could be tough and that tough could be sexy.

She rocked her own obvious sex appeal combined with her character’s incredible strength and abilities at the same time. From there her fame skyrocketed all the way to pop icon status. Even after her Wonder Woman days were over, she hardly retired her superhero cape. Lynda continued her battle for justice off screen as an advocate for LGBT rights and eventually she also joined efforts in finding the cure for cancer. Today she’s still the same strong, beautiful, actress and philanthropist that she was back in the groovy era.
