The Crowd at Woodstock '69 Festival
"Peace and Happiness"

400 to 500 Thousand people spontaneously assembled for a happening like nothing before or since. Peace  and love filled the air along with the wafting of smoke and a musical venue that's never been duplicated.  Woodstock remains both unique and legendary.  These photos remind us of  the magic.
