Borehamwood is just outside NW London... had a massive Skinhead crew in the 60s, they would often come to blows with the Burnt Oak Mob,

That girl on the left seems like a looker. It's a slow day at work so I looked that place up on Google Maps. We don't have McDonald's that look that nice in the States.

This was also a famous 60s/70s early Skinhead haunt, Then and now... The Chelsea Drug Store Kings Road London, now a Mc Donalds,rolleyes.gif

If you look at the early pic.. on the corner of the building is the entrance down stair's to where the disco would have been.

While searching for someting else i found this interesting 60s pic Could be down Oxford St or the Kings road London, Note behind the Hari Krishnas a couple of skinhead boys and girls, it shows the girls often had long hair.

Did the two links appear that I put up with the old ITN news clips from 1970 Roy? Can't see it when I look for it, don't know what's showing and what isn't.

Very Interesting Paul, Paki Bashing got so bad that in April 1970 The Pakistani High Commissioner called in the then Home Secretary James Callaghan that the violence against Pakistanis by Skinheads was damaging relations between the two Countries.

That clip was in Wolverhampton where they had a large Asian population even back then, Same as parts of the London East End where Paki Bashing was also carried out. I have to say around my part of NW London it was not widespread , but it did go on. Like Queer bashing a rotten awful thing to do...but it was then and part of British history.

They always did, Roy. Hardly any of us had hair down to the wood in those days, right?
