By the late 1960s serious opposition to the war in Vietnam had developed. Hundreds of thousands had already marched and demonstrated around the country before the afternoon of November 15, 1969 when the people of San Francisco took to the streets for the Vietnam War Moratorium Peace March.
As I walked along Geary Boullevard to Golden Gate Park with the crowd I photographed individuals, and groups with banners—it seemed like a cross-section of everyone in San Francisco. I used a 35mm Leicaflex SL camera with a semi-wide angle 35mm lens, and a standard 50mm lens. The film was Kodak Tri-X, and I developed it with a formula of Edwal FG7 and sodium sulfite that I learned from photo-grapher Pirkle Jones. Jones became well known for his photographs of the Black Panthers. The photos in this book are printed as they were composed in the camera.
