Blimey! There's a blast from the past. I'd almost forgotten that record. I had it.
I like 'solefie'.
Is there a footwear equivalent of the 'selfie' I wonder? 'Shoeselfie'?
Really nice!
I hear you, but on the other hand, trends have to start somewhere. By about 1967/68 there was a general 'mod' look all over Britain, with minor local differences. It was fairly static, and you could expect to see an embryonic version of 'the look' just about anywhere. But based on what I saw in South London during late 1968 and the whole of 1969, and while hopping back and forward to the NW, I was convinced (and still am) that certain important details of what became...

However there are problems with this photo, firstly the fact that the colour has faded, and secondly that I am now finding it hard to put a date on it.I know from the location that it...
