Vintage photos of the 1970s in N.J.

Some had it goin’ ON in the ’70s … and then, there were folks like me.

I grew up in the ’70s.

So, as a guy who went from pre-teen to adult during the decade, I’d like to share a few random facts about those good ole days:

* The population of the U.S. in 1970 was 204,879,000, the national debt was $450 billion and the average annual salary was approximately $7,800 per year.

* The Beatles kicked off the decade by announcing they were splitting up in April 1970. Bummer.
