Today, September 7, 2020, is Labor Day in the United States, and fifty years ago September 7, 1970, just happened to also a Labor Day. Late summer of 1970 was just at the turning point towards full hardcore for adult films, and this was just beginning to penetrate NYC at this point (no pun intended, of course). And at several of the New Era/Seymore Domore theaters you still had a mix of films (or more likely loops) and old-school burlesque dancers (including one we’ve come across before…).
So here, for your consideration and enjoyment, are the adult ads from the Labor Day 1970 New York Daily News, so you can get a glimpse of what the working men, and perhaps a few working women, and probably even more than a few “working women”, were enjoying in Fun City fifty years ago today (instead of suffering through yet another Jerry Lewis Telethon).
