I always say this, but once again hope the link works. Stumbled across this on Facebook via friend of a friend. Someone's 45th Wedding anniversary yesterday. Not sure if these were the actual wedding outfits. Great suit. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153526596627439&set=a.10151748836297439.1073741826.539727438&type=1&theater

Some good photos showing up from time to time on the "Cambridge in the good old days from the 1960ts" Facebook group. Here is a link to the latest that I thought were interesting : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10206389524125776&set=gm.365168453688711&type=1&theater
Luton in Yarmouth 1970. Have we seen it before perhaps, and does my link work? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1419902054921400&set=pb.100007048574423.-2207520000.1429724442.&type=3&theater
This picture made me smile. What year though? Lots of hair, but still got straight trousers on. 1971? Hope I'm not way off and it isn't late 70's. https://www.facebook.com/LondonFootballFanPage/photos/a.605582869469351.1073741829.595942707100034/1024904967537137/?type=1&theater
Remember seeing a whole gang of Torquay Utd hooligans in donkey jackets about 1975, all with the black plastic on the back. They were definitely wearing them for fashion purposes, and looked menacing in them to me. Maybe they were not worn by original skinheads except as work wear, but some of the 78/79 skinhead revivalists carried on wearing them from the mid 70's boot boy era prior to getting Crombies & Sheepskins?
I've just finished reading Sharpe as a Blade Part One the 50's & 60's by Ronnie Sharpe. It tells the story of his early days supporting Sheffield United. An interesting read recounting the start of mass football hooliganism. It also documents him growing up in Dronfield, which I now know is between Chesterfield and Sheffield. He was a greaser hooligan, but some mentions of skinheads towards the end of the book. He claims to have spotted his first skinhead in September '69...
Terry Venables in 1960
I thought one or two snippets in this short film were interesting. It is a documentary about the Suffolk London overspill town of Haverhill made in 1969. The estates featured don't look quite so nice any more. Unfortunately no sound on this preview. http://www.eafa.org.uk/catalogue/1185 02:00 paper boy in monkey jacket & bobble hat. 06:00 off to work 21:30 in the factory 22:00 5-a-side, lots of claret and blue shirts 23:00 dancing
