The Eyes Circa '65 Ealing, London


Didn't girls wear them as mini-dresses too? I'm sure there's a pic of Twiggers wearing one.

That pic completely ruined my breakfast.

So I trawled through image after image of Twiggy (oh what a shame!) until I came up with this:

Have just listened to the Eyes on youtube.Not bad at all.In `65/`66 I would certainly have listened to them more-if I had known about them. smile.gif

I always did like that girl, what good taste she has (that's Sunderland Rugby Club's strip she's wearing!)

Surely that's the 80's? The jeans look way too tight for the 60's.

I have often tried to wrack my Brain(what little use it gets)and remember where I bought my first pair of Levis.Somebody has been writing about his "Teenage Experiences" and said that the only place you could get them originally ,was Millets.In those days Millets were responsible of getting stuff that we would eventually buy as Mods/Skinheads.Look at them now.smile.gif

This photo appeared indeed numerous time on this thread, as did some rather dodgy ones with the same guys. 

You'll notice the same guys on the picture on the bottom right. I'm not an expert in pubs, but the ads looks quite old don't you think ?:D

And this one too...
