"As the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love draws near, we're running a series of stories that look back at some of the people and places most associated with the countercultural movement.
A June 7, 1967 San Francisco Chronicle story titled, "Hippieland Detour Starts" announced that the numbers of young people swarming to the Haight were so great, Muni temporarily rerouted two bus lines.
"The Haight-Noriega line, number 71, and the Haight-Sunset line, number 72, will be rerouted to avoid congestion in the Haight-Ashbury district caused by hippies, tourist looking at hippies, hippies looking at tourists, hippies looking at hippies, etc.," the paper reported."
