Poster has a red and white patterned border with red circles in each corner. The circles are outlined in black and divided into brick-like sections. In the center is a drawing of several human figures with mutltiple lines with red and white coloring. The poster has black text that reads, 'Headquarters East Psychedelic Shop 3 Doors from the Magic Theater 942 Mass. Ave. Cambridge 492-7047." Head shops catered to the emerging youth culture of the mid 1960s. The Psychedelic Shop on Haight Street in San Francisco opened January 3, 1966 under Army veteran Ron Thelin and his younger brother Jay, and was arguably the first such establishment in the United States; this was an East coast spin off.
