Hello again, just caught up at last., great stuff as usual.


Some interesting photos -




Mods '64. Lad on the right wearing a donkey jacket. Fashion statement or just chilly?




No info.




Captioned - Mods in jeep at Brighton '65 watch as policeman writes them out a ticket.




No info


Dance to the Music by Sly and the Family Stone, I'm assured this was another belting dance record that didn't really fit in with the norm.

You'll notice the lad with the leather bomber jacket on, I had a suede one and these were by far more popular in Bristol than Harringtons - but of course we weren't as flush (or as flash) as you Cockernees smile.gif

Leather and Suede Bombers were available about `68/`69.I had a Light Brown Suede one and a Black Leather one.By mid `69 Harringtons were everywhere,so other Jackets came into vogue.
With the Tunes being remembered.These would be heard in the "Plaza" on a Sunday Night.There was another Club we used to go to where early Funk was being spun- James Brown"Say It Loud....",Charles Watts and the Watts 103rd Street Rythmn Band"Express Yourself".It started me off with later Jazz/Funk Tunes.Good Mix of Music was about then.smile.gif

This is really a great photo, Bit hard to date, The lads are very smart, all wearing striped ties with plain shirts which was the norm...very Mod, the lad far right is wearing dodgy looking shoes though, The girls kneeing are dressed fairly Skinhead, Maybe 1970,
They have a London look about them, but not too sure.

I hate the 'age' thing.

Some of these burds are grannies now. nod[1].gif

The guy second from the right - a very typical pose and stance from the day: top button of jacket done up, revealing hitched up trousers with hands in pockets. I used to practice that look time and time again in the mirror before heading off down the Locarno.

Funny thing is without the girls and the length of the lads' hair I would have said about 1968, with the girls in the check shirts I reckon summer 1970 is bang on.

... and i bet there was always a scuffle to get in front of the mirror, there - with the lads possibly just edging the girls out. nod[1].gif

I thought the same ..its the Girls who date the photo, the skinhead suit was very similar to the late Mod suit, by 70 our hair was longer the length of hair of these lads,
One of the best photos Ive seen excellent.smile.gif

Just got to add ..when i got my first suit made in 69, i left it up to the tailor for the style...we all did, the main thing was to have a longer jacket .. well waisted and one rear vent as long as possible, which was different to the Mod suit.
