Great find mate.Scooters here, Just outside North London. The red bus routes terminated here and to go 'out' any further you had to get a 'green line' (less frequent). I've been told that scooters later on were functional, with none of the customising of the early 60s. Mick had a tatty old Li that he was really embarrassed about (used to leave it round his mate's house- not because it was such an eyesore, but because my dear old mum would worry herself sick if she knew...
Hello mate,I think Colin said it was Brixton, It jogged memories here, pretty sure that was correct, definitely 'other side of London'When I asked what the 'type' was, I only got 'American bomber jacket (brown) like Steve McQueen wore in 'The Great Escape'.

Not sure if this was Mod days though.Have to bow down to your terrific knowledge of shirts lads, had Brutus and Jaytex, so confused over which was which ,what was...

The hair is Pat Jennings') A few local things I've discovered... Does anybody remember Jungle greens coming back in the early 70s? Van Heusen shirts being a big thing? Levi jackets were worn locally, not so much in '69 and not by the smartest lads. Some of the local boys would never even wear jeans, let...
