When My Childhood Attacks

tierandragon posted scans from a 1977 J.C. Penney catalog here.

The horrified flashbacks came shortly thereafter.

Keep in mind when you look at those pics, that was the year the original Star Wars came out and started a geeky cultural revolution of sorts. It was also when punk was in its infancy, and it was never more sorely needed. New Wave hadn't even appeared on the horizon.

Just remember, when you hear some cranky conservative griping about the '60s -- they were better than the dark ages of the '70s!
