Great pic Ed.
Lad sitting down second from the front - is that a half inch stitched turnup in his jeans? - there'll be trouble now!
(They're not Levis either)

Their is a miss match of fans in this pic, May 1970, Only the lads in the front of the photo are Skinheads, note their hair length.

I suppose because of all the interest we had a American TV station turning up on Kilburn high Road interviewing us about being Skinheads..We just took the piss biggrin.gif
Years later I thought when it was shown in the States would the American teenagers latch on to the Skinhead fashion, smile.gif

American TV doing a story on Skinheads? Would love to see that.I can imagine it just went over the heads of the American public.I know this may be a tuff question but do you remember which network? Maybe they still got it(the Beeb seams pretty good about saving the past)

Looks like they are 1/2 inch stitched turn ups to me.How can you tell they are not Levi's(what an eye buttons)

Whats got to be remembered we was 14 to 16 year olds, talking the way 14 to 16 year olds do, silly talk, but not to us, Like all teenagers throughout history we had nothing in common with our elders. We lived in our own little world.biggrin.gif

My Mum and Dad never knew what i was up too, until the Old Bill came knocking on the Door.biggrin.gif

I think that would be an interesting story for M.O.M.'s book.How your parents didn't know what you were up to til the Old Bill knocked on the door.So far couldn't find the Chicago News story except for this from a book.http://books.google.com/books?id=RB8fCH_iaoQC&pg=PA147&lpg=PA147&dq=1969+American+TV+documentary+(Chicago)+on+Skinheads&source=bl&ots=k608aOPFeL&sig=T8j9zS08sFMPtFHDJ1CbSvHKmCk&hl=en&sa=X&ei=T7yuUI3RPMm1ygHsz4D4DQ&ved=0CGIQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=1969%20American%20TV%20documentary%20(Chicago)%20on%20Skinheads&f=false

Something we were all familiar with at the time, yankmod. Lasttye has it 100% right.

Margate - presumably London mods then? I notice the jean jackets.

Also the shortness of the strides.

This - IMHO - is an interesting one, particularly for the notes that accompany it:

Football-fans.jpg

I have avoided writing about football so far (apart from a post about match day in 1953). Today’s photograph is more about the phenomenon of the travelling supporter. During the 1970s, an increasing number of young men/boys took to following their teams around the country. Some were hell bent on trouble, fighting and shoplifting, but to many it was the excitement of being independent, seeing Britain with a group of mates.
The photograph was taken by Jim Carter, well-known in railway circles as the ‘Footplate Photographer’. He took a camera wherever he went, although this photograph is not one of his usual subjects. Tantalisingly, he has not dated the photograph but the platform is the London-bound/arrival at Lime Street, so the supporters could be returning from a London match (although it looks too light a day for that) or arriving from London for a match at either Goodison or Anfield. It is interesting to note that team colours were out of favour at that time, so identification is almost impossible. Note also, the policeman peering out from a carriage (with the door open).
There is a vast number of photographs out there which reflect society and its preoccupations. Sport, particularly football, is a dominant one in Liverpool and it is interesting to see the activities of the supporters rather that the action on the field documented in this way.

Edit: I well remember the patch-effect South Sea Bubble Co, crew neck jumpers (ginger kid in the left foreground), as discussed some pages back. 1970-71?

From '74 - but still worth a read for those that didn't 'get' football hooliganism. Or were too young. satisfied.gif

And a short vid clip. satisfied.gif

Spoken like a true "Cockney Red".I was not involved but the London Clubs were organised by `74.Whenever Man Utd. used to come to West Ham it was mostly the "Cockney Reds"(with a few Northerners).Yes Man.Utd.,had numbers at "Home",the same as Liverpool.They would be given half of the Terraces in the "Away" Stand.The largest "Away" Support I saw (outside London) was Newcastle,at the Boleyn,and could they sing!!!! smile.gif
post #9540 of 18726

just found this forum! Well pleased! I`m a proud Brummie here, Saw my 1st skins while on Hols in Perranporth easter 69! They were Millwall & I knew that was the look I wanted! Too young for Mods & hated all that hippy shit & worse loads of Bikers givin it the big un..scruffy barstads!!

Loved my football team Birmingham City and within weeks we had our own little crew! By 1972 our firm was major & I loved all the footy agg! Seems stupid now & I`m glad that the game has gone all Genteel, but back in the day every away game was not only a baptism of fire but in many ways a rites of passage from green as grass kid to streetwise adult.

 

Did so many things back then that make me colour up with justifiable embarrassment but you know what they say its onlt thing you didnt do that you truely regret!!

Grew out of it all when I got married mortgaged & became a Dad..but and an A1 bovver boy who is now a University professor said this to me...Do you know why we got into it?? Because it was so bloody exciting thats why!

Love to hear more from you originals!

 

Keep Right on Oh & let your Yea be Yea!!
