Young John Travolta scales the Eiffel Tower

Groovy Baby! Remembering a time when bell-bottoms, tight shirts and Tacky Tourist Photos were the latest rage!

SUBMITTED BY: Raymond Hoffer    LOCATION: Paris, France (1972)

Backpacking through France after his freshman year of college, Raymond hopped from youth hostel to youth hostel in his disco duds and his copy of “Europe on $5 a Day.”

“As for my clothes, these were standard issue among college students at the time,” says Raymond. “Construction worker boots, bell bottom jeans with a wide leather belt and some kind of unique print t-shirt. I also traveled with a green Army/Navy bag over my shoulder.”

Fashions may fade, but the Eiffel Tower looks the same after all these years.
