Think I have posted this photo before..My mate Mark from Fulham London.
The wearing of Tartan caps in London came about from Rod Stewart around 71 and the odd Tartan scarf....it was not that widespread and did not last long..i mean a Englishman wearing Tartan..fcuk that...
This faded pic is of a mate of mine Bill O'Mahony R.I.P,[ centre of photo] a Kilburn and Chelsea Shed Legend, The pic was sent to me via FB by his brother Larry. Bill is also in the Kilburn ..Phoenix Club clip that i have posted on here. The pic is from a family holiday at Bognor...not sure of the date.. the lads around him are just lads he meet on the holiday. Just to add Larry has told me the photo was taken July/Aug 1967.
Sorry I just saw Toms comments, The photos was in a Gay Magazine in 72? ...Hilarious maybe it was their revenge for having a hard time from the skinheads, Yankmod spot on mate we was so young and naive, Gays...or Queers as they was referred to back then ...we was scared of them...., it seems crazy now..but thats the way it was......

Also the jeans we wore was a parallel wider fit. As you said...
This photo has came up a few times...These skinheads are not originals, ..more 80s gay boys,
Italian Made Fred Perry.
Yes Paul the two lads left of the photo are from NW London....The lad in the middle Nigel who was 17 in 69 said the lad too the right was from up North, he said maybe Manchester.
