You are exactly right.The very start of Carnaby Street was sheer genius.A run-down Backstreet(where nobody really went),Rents were nearly give-away,for London anyway.People setting up with a few Bits and most of their money riding on the Venture.Some Boutique Owners made and lost Fortunes during it`s time.For me,the best time was `64 until `66.
Another Crass Statement .The present Owner of the 100 Club,Oxford Street,stated on a B.B.C. Programme today(where else) that in London and Britain were no changes since the 1940s - until Punk came along.It was a Section regarding Punk Music.What a Dickhead.Punk was just another Street Fashion which came behind Teddy Boys,Mods,Skinheads etc.Punk never really changed anything,just another Fashion that Collectors pay high prices for, in memorabilia.
There was a Fashion for the Shirt Collar come up under the Chin -normally 2/3 Buttons to the Collar.Interesting to see that the Photo of the Small Faces was put at 1967.According to " Quite Naturally The Small Faces" there is a series of these Photos that were taken June 1966(of which this is one of).I remember the Satin Shirts coming out at that time,because I had a Purple one,yep I copied Steve...Ps It is interesting that in the same block of Photos,the boys wear each...
Funny,he was the first Person I thought of.......
As I was driving home along the A13,last Friday Morning,I passed a 1966 Mini still doing well.What I could see,there was no Modifications and it looked in good Condition.Well done the Mini.
I believe the Gentleman posted on here as well.
What we have now Ace and Eights,is the"Know-it-all Generation".We do not have to ask People who were there,because we have read it in a Book etc.I see the effects of that all over T.V.This is the same lot who say London was dull before the 80s.Little do they know.
This was `66.Later Stevie`s Barnet would have been longer(`67ish).
Reminds me of the " Bonnie and Clyde" Look,spoken about earlier in this Forum.
Good Evening Mr.Knightley......
