While browsing through an amazing list of historical photographs at Bored Panda, I found these three music-related shots.
In the olden days, you were allowed to listen to a record in the store before you decided to buy it. This was especially important in Britain where the BBC refused to play pop records and there were no commercial radio stations. This is a shot of customers in a London record store in 1955.
In December 1961, the Beatles played a gig at the Aldershot Club in London–and just 18 people showed up.
And how about this aerial shot of Woodstock in August 1969?
