Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. Halloween of 1967 is just days away.

In fashion, a new "hippie subculture" has emerged, bringing with it laid back Bohemian styles. Frayed bell-bottomed jeans, Jesus sandals, crushed velvet suits and bright tie-dye t-shirts are all popular items of clothing at the moment. It's 1967, so radio stations are playing hit songs from artists such as Procol Harum, The Monkees, The Beatles, The Doors, Lulu and The Association.
