Throwback Thursday: late 60s & early 70s media guides.

"Throwback Thursday" is back for a third straight week and this time out we've scanned covers and select pages from inside four late 1960s and early 1970s Princeton media guides.

Four decades ago these guides were not the glossy, full color, 200+ behemoths they eventually developed into. Heck, they weren't even called "media guides." The oldest of these documents is little more than a small, possibly photocopied pamphlet.

That said, each has a certain understated, simplistic beauty - though they've got nothing on the mid-1970s Princeton media guides I won on eBay last year which are nearly works of art.

(Don't worry, you'll see'm soon enough.)
