Mad Men, The Monolith, "Marigold" on the commune

In Mad Men episode 7.04, The Monolith, Roger and Mona visit their daughter, now calling herself Marigold, at a commune in upstate New York. I was reminded of that by this fascinating photo essay of a commune that existed in Hawaii from 1969 to 1977.

There’s plenty of differences, of course. The easy and undemanding weather of Hawaii meant that working together communally was less necessary, since life was less demanding. Thus Camp Taylor lent itself to squatters, whereas I bet in New York they really had to work at cooperative living. Still, the photos are beautiful and a gateway into the world of Mad Men‘s final seasons. Check it out (NSFW).
