The 1972 Alice Cooper calendar (close-up below) hanging on the door in the seventh photo came inside his 1971 Killer LP. That’s how I nailed down the year. Also, the “Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary” and “Patience My Ass” black light posters are by Art Bevacqua, copyright 1971, and the Dancers of Mali (little poster in third photo) toured the U.S. in ’71 and ’72.

I still haven’t got the location, although I know there’s something here to give it away. There’s a Courier-News clipping in the second to last photo, a New Jersey newspaper. It ain’t Princeton. The accommodations are not nearly posh enough and the kids have too much character. Rutgers? There’s also a Courier-News in Elgin, Illinois. Let me know if you know or have an idea.
