Family life in the 1960s was shaped by the times. It was a decade of war, rebellion, drugs, sex, peace, love, and rock-and-roll. These years brought considerable advances in women’s rights, civil rights, and space travel.
Still, the 60s also saw the Vietnam war, war protests, assassinations, and an ever-widening “generation gap” between parents and their more liberal offspring.
One key fact about family life during the 60s was that over the decade, family life changed from the more traditional Father knows Best family lifestyle of the 50s to the more questioning, rebellious, and colorful All in the Family family lifestyle of the 70s.
Here below is a set of lovely photos that shows beautiful portraits of families in the 1960s.
