Hippies Descend on Piccadilly Circus in London Ca. 1969Unknown - 1969
Youth alienation from mainstream culture led to the flourishing of the hippie movement in the 1960s, in which many young people denounced what they saw as the materialism of Western society. San Francisco, New York, and London became centers of the hippie movement. In London, many hippies began congregating underneath the statue of Eros, the god of love, in Piccadilly Circus. The presence of hippies - and their widespread drug use - baffled many older people and contributed to a widely perceived generation gap.
