Nearly every teen bedroom in the 1960s and 1970s had posters covering all the walls. Teens created shrines to their favorite hot celebrity, favorite band, and even favorite movie by hanging every poster they could get their hands on. People could buy posters almost anywhere. Do you remember how every record store had a huge poster section? You could find any type of poster imaginable there, including ones of your top bands, like Kiss and the Eagles, your hot celebrity crushes, like Shaun Cassidy and Farrah Fawcett, and even contemporary pin-up girls.
