These 17 Photos Of Alaska In The 70s Are Mesmerizing

Vintage photos are a great way to capture what life was like back in the 70s. A lot of Alaskans may look at these photos and think, “Hey, I remember that!” but many of the younger generation will get the chance to flash to the past and see what Anchorage was all about 30-40 years ago.

Some of these establishments caught on camera are still in operation today, see if you can spot them! I hope you enjoy looking at all the familiar places in a new, albeit older, light. The photos are credited to Stephen Cysewski and his Remembering Anchorage catalog.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
