At that time I was mainly obsessed with comic books, old comedy TV shows and movies, MAD magazine, TOPPS trading cards and especially old horror films, which I think is clearly reflected in the photos. Like many other kids, I was also fascinated by photos of Famous Monsters of Filmland editor's Forrest J. Ackerman's "Ackermansion", featuring his obsessive collection of rare horror and science fiction mementos displayed in photo features within the magazine for all to see and envy. Those photos were clearly an influence on my early bedroom decorating skills.
In late 1972, my family packed up and moved to Manhattan, my bedroom was disbanded, and I can only assume, returned to normality.
