This photograph shows what a quintessential ’70s couple Adrian and Vicki looked like. He has his longer hair combed to the side and a modest beard; she has long, straight hair and circular glasses.

Adrian was 17-years-old and Vicki was 15-years-old at the time. Neither had experienced a relationship quite like this. They were about to spend their first holiday season together in 1971, and Adrian was on the prowl for the perfect gift. As it turned out, Vicki had already picked out Adrian’s gift.
