Do your family albums contain vintage snaps of you or your parents — or perhaps your grandparents, or family friends — taken during the 1960s in the San Francisco Bay Area? Then we want to see them.

To celebrate the broadcast of American Masters’ acclaimed film Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue on May 3, we’re building a collective picture of the style, attitude and atmosphere of 1960s San Francisco and the wider Bay Area: a place Janis Joplin called home from 1963 until her untimely death age 27 in 1970. That’s where you — and your family photos — come in.

Think your family’s got a great photo taken between 1960 and 1970 in the Bay Area? Take a photo of it (or if you’re feeling fancy, maybe even scan it) and post it to Twitter, Instagram or KQED’s Facebook Page with the hashtag #BayBackWhen. Don’t forget to include a note about who’s in it, and when and where it was taken, if you know it.  We’ll be collecting photos and reposting highlights to social media and our website!

Remember, by posting a photo you are agreeing that you have the right and permission necessary to post the photo (e.g., that you own the copyright in the photo and that you have everyone’s permission in the photo to post it). You agree that KQED may publish the photo on our website , social media pages or in other media and that you will hold KQED harmless from any and all claims and expenses (including legal expenses) arising from use of the photo and/or your failure to comply with the rules set out in this disclaimer.
