that picture answers the question I always had on what the hell those strange brass platters were that I'm always seeing at second hand shops, obviously they were just popular in the states.

All of our influences came from Manchester, principally the Twisted Wheel and the terraces of Manchester City. I am going to try to post a couple of those articles.

Welcome.Looking forward to reading them.

Welcome, roytonboy. Used to be familiar with your home town area. Look forward to reading your articles and must try to put down some of my own memories of the City terraces.

Any idea of location? Any idea if we can get permission to use it? It is actually very useful to show how people (girls, in this case) adapted the 'look' to school. It's almost exactly as I remember them doing.

Great photo, Bunty. Remember that look too.

 

Along similar lines, another photo - noted as Rainham 1969. A few of the girls on the right have the look?

Everyone got in the Kippax - it was too big for City to keep it.

It was always split virtually 50:50 when we (United) played 'em there.

I went every season (we were in the same division) from 1968-80.

Title 20 coming up! happy.gif

By '72, only the youngest, out-of-touch kids were in this clobber. (Posted merely for historical/human interest purposes.) shog[1].gif

That pic of the two blokes in check jackets - the kid on the left has the most disastrous mullet ever. His barber should be tried for crimes against humanity.

Me and t'wife and t'family of three
Went to Reeton by the sea.
We watched t'clog dancers,
Listened to t'bands
Then we went on Reeton Sands.
We kept eatin' parkin,
We kept eatin' parkin,
We kept eatin' parkin,
That's why we are so brown!
(trad)

Welcome on board, Roytonboy.
