Hairdo's of Tanglewood 1972

From the same outdoor concert crowd as before comes these drawings of people around me. The hairdo's are of note. The young guy at left looks like he's got some punk rock style going on, while the lady at right is a marvel of hairspray sculpture. Since punk style wasn't really that known in 1972, he may have been an off-duty military man. The lady gave her name, "Myra Balber," and said she was from Miami, Florida and was just visiting Massachusetts. I also added the date of the drawing. I love character drawing but in our more paranoid society it may not be a good idea.

Pencil on sketchbook page, 8" x 11", August 15, 1972. 

My Google Search reveals that August 15, 1972 was the date of the Boston Symphony Orchestra's summer gala, where the orchestra played a lot of exciting pieces and finished it off with Tschaikowsky's "1812 Overture" with REAL CANNONS AND FIREWORKS which is why so many people were there.
