Handbill announcing: ''The Diggers Have a Hotel.''

[SF]: Communication Company, [1967].

Item #SKB-15440

4to. Broadside. First edition. The Diggers request help from the hip community to bring their "hotel" up to code asking: "Please help. It will be free to all when it's done." They go on to explain their intentions to "have an all night center, sack out places for singles & couples, free movies, theater, acid rescue, dream life for street orphans, everything we have is yours." A nice example of the usefulness of the Communication Company daily handbills in furthering the direct-action, community organizing role that the Diggers played in the Haight-Ashbury during the apex of the hippie influx. Two-hole punch to top edge as issued, else very fine. (The Diggers "liberated" whatever paper they could and in several instances, as can be seen in Notes from a Revolution: Com/Co, the Diggers & the Haight, they used paper with holes punched to the top or sides to produce their handbills.).

Price: $250.00
