Gion odori time! (祇園をどり)

So Gion Higashi (East Gion) isn't as large/popular as Gion Kobu, why I don't know. Gion Higashi is a Hanamachi (flower town) that there isn't much information about, past and present.
I only have a few Gion Odori programs in my collection as I don't see them for sale very often.
Today I'm uploading some early Gion odori:

7th Gion odori-1961
8th Gion odori-1962
11th Gion odori-1965
24th Gion odori-1980

Here is the folder with all my other Gion odori programs, enjoy!
