The girls back then had nothing to go on so they just copied the Boys...and had their hair cut a little longer, the feather cut developed from this over a few months into 69.

 

Lasttye, thanks for the background information, especially for dating and localization. I knew the picture before. One of my favorite pics.

We've made out that its Bolton, not the year. Is that the style with the berets mentioned further back?

 

 

Unless I'm very much mistaken, this photo is of a National Front march that was held in Bolton in Sept/Oct 1971. The NF arranged the march on a day when Bolton Wanderers were at home to Blackburn Rovers (both towns with large numbers of Asian immigrants) A local derby that would guarantee that there were lots of 'likely lads' in town. Sadly, an early example of how the right wing would try to influence/capitalize on some aspects of skinhead attitudes. Bolton is in Greater Manchester, but fashion  wise would be some months behind central Manchester. In a couple of days I'll post details of a little escapade involving t'Wanderers - be of interest to you Chelsea lads!

It's beginning to get a little Silly on here now, and to be frank a little boring (Well the petty Snide dig's here and there at least).

 

Ah the downfall of many a good internet Forum.

just found these ones on fb:

Willesden Boys - Smart, Bill and Shed


TOUCH-UP..........White Horse, Church Road NW10
Original photo taken by Infamous Willesden photographer 'Smut the Leg' - due to having half a shandy prior to taking the photo Smut's shakes has resulted in an out of focus picture.

Well so much for Scruffy Northerners then, though London was the Pinnacle of Style, look like tatty herberts to me :)

 

Gold Dust none the less.

Is anyone here interested in a Suede Sherpa Levi Big E jacket?  Snap buttons 

Would fit a 36s

 

Has some stains, could possibly be cleaned.

I have said before,there were scruffy Skinheads during the 60s,whether it was North or South.But as with other things,it does tend to get shouted down.smile.gif
