Rolling Stones Altamont poster

The concert at Altamont Speedway has always had significance for me. Symbolic of the end of an era of hope and promise, the concert was marked by violence when one man was beaten to death by Hell's Angels and three other people died from various causes. This post is meant to showcase photographs from the concert, but they are scarce on the web. The links below represent about an hours surf-time:
