Time Machine » The 1960s

Youth defined the turbulent 1960s. In 1961, the youngest elected president of the United States, along with his beautiful wife and their adorable children, took up residence in the White House. Just three years later, four lads from Liverpool would help a nation forget the assassination of their handsome young leader the previous fall—for many, the February 1964 arrival of the Beatles in the United States marked the real beginning of the 1960s.

The counterculture that blossomed across the U.S. in the years that followed rebelled against the war in Vietnam, advocated for women’s liberation and civil rights, started speaking up for the environment, and generally challenged the status quo in every possible way. By the summer of 1967, tie-dyed kids with names like "Sunshine" and "Tree" had taken over the streets of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and adjacent Golden Gate Park. Today, many of these same flower children answer to "nana" and "gramps."

I have had this "Peter Max Plastic  Cup" since the 1960's, it has a lid when I got it and I had two of them. 

One is in my refrigerator right now with chocolate candy in it.
