Seem to remember press claims that this was a late 60’s/early 70’s skinhead weapon at football. Sounds horrific, even worse than dart throwing!
Definitely no coloured laces in Manchester, 1969-70.

We wanted to look smart and, dare I say it, business-like... coloured laces would have looked to incongruous and out-of-step to our lot.

Heard the old amonia tales - never witnessed anything of the sort, though.

The Ammonia Spray was more Villain than Skinhead,but in saying that, they were used.By then I was gone from the Violence.

Photo taken inside one of the Palais Dancehalls.[/quote]The Ritz, in Manchester, had a sprung dancefloor and was a regular haunt for hundreds of us at weekends.

Always a good few scraps as crews from different areas came together and tried to nick each others' birds.

IIRC, the bouncers - not doormen - were properly team-handed and never the types of blokes you could reason with.

That said, from time to time, they would pick on the wrong people, and occasionally had to take their face(s) and teeth, home in a hankie.

Still there, in the city centre and the 'grab-a-granny nights' were - and maybe still are - the stuff of many a young man's (wet) dreams. nod[1].gif

More or less what I wondered in my last post, Colin.

No info for this one unfortunately.
Sorry M-o-M, it's impossible to find who owns the copyright for these photos, they've been nicked so many times it's impossible to find out where they originally came from. (I've found some of yours (and mine) on quite a few sites too)
Now then.......
What about Army greatcoats? biggrin.gif

That first one has been tinted!

I wondered where you were - thought you had dropped off the edge of the planet.

"What about Army greatcoats?" - What about them?

We have Photos of Mods/Skins from Satelite Towns around London( I have written about these)where they got their inspirations from London,not the North.On Saturday/Sunday mornings you could get the Fast to London(in Guildfords` Case,you could get to Waterloo in half an hour)and then go "Up West" or wherever.There were loads that did this-from all around London.You would meet in a Shop and chat.On the Line through Guildford,you had Woking,Surbiton,Walton-on-Thames all big Skin Towns.They also went to Football that way.So what would been worn 25/30 miles away would be worn in London.That happened in Manchester as well(if I have read the "Twisted Wheel" Book correctlt)but greater distances,because of People going to the Club.smile.gif

Buyers from these Town(who owned Fashion Shops)would buy their Stock etc.,from London.This was the case from the early Mod days.I actually bought my Royals from Timpsons in Dorking,Surrey-not the West End.I eventually bought all three Styles from the same Shop-when I went there Window Dressing.smile.gif
