"Solovair" is still there. The boot actually looks like the old "Hawkins" boots and Solovair makes them still.

To summarise my Manchester research so far, these pictures are all I could find. Some of them have been posted here before, this is just to recuperate.

 

1968 in front of some Manchester youth club. Note Levi's jacket with sewn on patch first right.

 

1970

 

1971 Manchester United, Stratford End. Donkey Jacket spotted that the guy in white trousers is probably also wearing a Levi's jacket with sewn on patch, the way it's buttoned being a giveaway.

 

Moss Side youth club, 1969

 

Manchester car park near Twisted Wheel, year unknown.

 

A Manchester lass, supposedly.

                                                                  

*

Not Manchester, but close enough: Bolton 1971. Someone claimed these lads took part in an NF protest after a football match. If true, that would make it the earliest documented instance of skinhead/NF crossover. Note typically northern  beret worn by one of the banner holders.

 

Edit: for a political march, it's a bit strange that the only banner just reads "Bolton".

 

And that's literally all. There must be more - if you know of any Manc pics, please post them. Cheers!

Bela,

 

What I know about that picture of the girl with the interesting hair cut is in 71.

I don't know about the march picture but just a couple observations. It looks earlier to me than 71 but I could be wrong but some of the boots look to be hobnail boots and would this have any connection with Manchester's wins in 68? Didn't they win a European cup then?

I stand by my word. I know you are a fan of Man U, but when you had a Ferguson how can you support such a prick.
I didn't try to be clever BTW, just funny. Where is your sense of humor ?
No offense intended.

nothing to do with a sense of humour, you are calling someone an asshole (to be correct the word is arsehole we're not completely americanised yet) you don't know, the bloke who lives over the road from me is a knob but I wouldn't dream of putting that on here ( which I have done now) shog[1].gif anyway let's back to fashion

Well you are on a American forum don't you know ? And nobody knows that friend of yours while Mourinho is a celebrity, who BTW respects no one. You will probably hate him in a year or two anyway. biggrin.gif

This is an interesting image. The caption says Barber example for peanuts. The backstory is this was hung on a barber's wall and the lads would use this to tell the barber what cut they wanted. I'm unable to locate where though.

just deviating slightly, it's a constant source of amusement to us when some of our old boys are together to talk about the photos on the wall of barbers ,when we grew our hair we would point to some of the photos on the wall and ask the barber to cut ours the same, which of course they tried but never succeeded ,,due to the different thickness and texture of our hair,and because most of the models were of a different race

It is definitely late 1971, as I can remember the event. The National Front rather cleverly arranged a rally on the day that Blackburn Rover played against Bolton Wanderers (If I recall it was in Blackburn but I'm not 100% sure). Both towns have large immigrant populations (mostly Pakistanis) and this was a time of general resentment against them, not just among the young. As a local derby, there would have been lots of likely lads on the streets looking for some excitement. My guess is these lads are on their way to the match (note the scarfs) and someone has got them to march chanting NF slogans for the purpose of a bit of press coverage. The Union Flag with a club's name on it was regularly seen at football grounds and was an easy cross over for the NF. (Far right organisations in the UK always march with the Union Flag (more commonly known to the  British as the Union Jack)).

 

From a fashion point of view, the further from the big cities, the slower the adoption of the latest styles, so even though Bolton is in greater Manchester, the styles are a bit behind what was being worn in the city centre. For example, berets were very much late 1969/early 1970 at City and United, but still being worn 18 months later in Bolton. Only a few pages back I did mention how localised some styles could be!

re photo moss side youth club the lad on the left is wearing what we used to call a surfer jacket with red white blue trim ,I can only remember them in blue ,were there other colours? And the photo in Bolton I noticed the sign bata on the shop wasn't that a shoe shop?
post #24105 of 24884
I had a jacket like that when I was a bairn. Never knew the term 'surfer' jacket, my Mam called it a wind cheater. They came in nylon or cotton, more recently I've heard cotton ones named 'monkey jackets' but we never used that term when we were young.
