So I'm talking to my friend Linda Kelly the other day. Linda publishes Haight Street Voice.

Haight Street Voice = “hyper-local with a global perspective.”

From Linda's About page:

"Haight Street Voice is a 12-page full-color glossy print magazine released 4x/year (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring) whilst pollinating other social platforms with posts, videos, monthly newsletter. There is nowhere like the Haight-Ashbury in the world. It is a magical place, and the community deserves to be documented, watching the light that lit the ’60s still shining bright (at least shining sometimes)'.

Anyway, we're talking about how much of art, music, and culture connects to Haight Ashbury. Then Linda starts talking about how bell bottoms came from the Haight, were designed by her friend Peggy Caserta. Whoa!

Here's the story:
