In the summer of 1971, The Garret closed its doors for the final time. There had been a deal in the works for Bud Dashiel to buy the place and keep it open as a folk music venue, but it fell through at the last minute and never happened.

A few notes about the photos below:

I recently came across these while reviewing and sorting some ancient color slide collections. As I recall, to avoid annoying people and disrupting things, many of the photos were taken without flash, so they tend to be a bit dark. Also, for some reason, many people chose to wear white that night and, unfortunately, that combined with the dark background gave the cheap slide scanner I'm using fits. I did what I could with the results, but many were too washed out to use.

There were many more people there that night than appear in the photos below. If I ever get a better scanner, I'll post a few more pictures of them. I've tried to put names to faces, but it's been forty years and I didn't know everyone to start with. As always, updates and corrections are welcome.

I think the dark haired lady on the right is Wanda Higginbotham. Sorry, other names have fallen out of my head.
