Good to see the Luncheon Voucher sticker on the window in the first photo too biggrin.gif

Great pics, loempiavreter - thanks.

Yes, Bunty, jobs that gave LVs were once highly sought after, IIRC. smile.gif

And i was a 'Green Flash' fan too, which was handy as they were the official school-issue gym wear at my school. nod[1].gif

Dunlop Green Flash not a skinhead footwear - I recall having a pair mid 70s - very comfy - are they still available?

Dunno if this has been seen by most of us: London's Football Gangs - 1971-2.

And this, we have: http://greatwen.com/tag/skinheads/

The entire site is superb, IMHO.

It was interesting when they quote West Ham.You had the North Bank,but when London Teams came and took up all the Visitor Allocations-you had the "Chicken Run".The Lower East Stand was where it started,and here the hard-core West Ham would stand.They then piled into the side of the other Fans.The Old Bill would try and stop them,but then they charged across the corner of the Pitch.Interesting to read about Croydon though.Always thought they were Crystal Palace,you learn something every day. smile.gif

Its a pretty nice looking canvas shoe, I don't believe Dunlop focuses on much footwear here in the States, I've always known them more for their sporting goods but never their shoes for the courts.

Great stuff - incidentally has anyone ever come across or knows Chris Lightbown?

I tried to contact him when I first wrote 'Bovver' as I had quoted him in an article in the papers from around 1971 (he is a West Ham fan and was not a journalist back then) - I posted on a few forums and contacted the Sunday Times but sadly no response.

Just nicked this off of Ballroom Blitz, I assume most of us have seen this before but for those of you that haven't it's from the cover of 'This is Reggae' (on Pama) without the jigsaw pieces and was a rip off of the 'This is Soul' (on Atlantic) album cover.

Anyway to my point - I've always wondered about the guys wearing cravats, was this a 'London thing' as I never saw anyone wearing them down our way or anywhere else 'ooop North'?

I had a paisley pattern one I nicked out of the old fella's wardrobe - he was a bit of a dandy when younger nod[1].gif - but rarely wore it.

It was silk and would never stay tied and, if truth be told, it was a tad avante garde for south Manchester. biggrin.gif

Thanks for posting the London Football Mobs piece Ed.Very interesting for an ignorant Yank.Noticed Danny Eccles mentioned again(in his YELLOW  Harrington?) I'm curious to know where Mr.Eccles (Hartkin,Hawkins,Ardkin ?) is today.I imagine he is a doting Grandfather who barbecues on Sunday and works as a stockbroker.Anyone know anything different than my invention? Lasttye ?
