Just seen a fella on what looked like a very early 60s Lambretta LD in Hayes. A white one with black side-panels, mirrors (not too many) and old fashioned black licence-number sticker on the front mudguard. Proper little time capsule. Bloke was wearing a peaked, open-face bash-hat and a white t-shirt. He was probably around 40-55 years old. Actually looked pretty smart and summery. Did have 'L' plates on though.

I want an old Lambretta now. Not going to get one though. I'd kill myself in under a week.

If it was an LD, it will have been no later than 57 (ish) Possibly an LI. (LD's bloody 'orrible things)

 

Either way, its great scooter riding weather.

It had the rounded mudguard that moves when you turn the bars rather than the bolted in place variety and side-panels with the 'step' towards the back.

Sounds like an LD to me.

 

Pre 60's.

The baritone sax player in the Ram Jam Band looks pretty smart (apart from the shoes)

The whole Ram Jam Band's wellies are pretty atrocious!

Interesting that Chris Barber had a good go at German and Dave Lav Trellis didn't.

I always rated Cliff Bennet & the Rebel Rousers - liked their version of the Beatles' 'Got To Get You Into My Life'.

Good grief! 'My Friend Jack Eats Sugar Lumps' - haven't heard that since it was out! Haven't really missed it.

Surely Chas Chandler in the audience at 19:08? Wasn't he Hendrix's manager at the time?

DLT had a quite the mid-Atlantic accent going on in that. That was a thing for a while with DJs. Also Chas Hodges from Charles and David on bass for Cliff Bennet.

Didn't some company reproduce the homemade Yale t-shirt featured in Richard Barnes 'Mods' book a few years back ?

The t-shirts in the above photo look screen-printed. Probably not shop-bought though. Maybe a sister at art college did 'em, or one of the lads worked at a printers and knocked them up at lunchtime. (I was a screen printer for many, many years in a former life)

Probably,as the "Look" became more fashionable.Originally it was done with Black Tape ironed on.There are also stories of Chef Jackets(White) being dyed different Colours.This was a little before my time.

If you at the cover of This Is The Modern World, you'll notice the arrows on Weller's sweater are actually strips of Velcro he's bunged on himself. (That's what I reckon anyway)
