    Yeah ,you and the rest of the country! This was when things were changing and some of the more questionable shirts were getting worn,late '71-72 if I recall.I had a brown one similar,but am glad to forget about it.
    Welcome to the Forum Chris and look forward to hearing more of your memories.That mother load of photos came along as a much needed boost IMO and cover quite a few years.

    BTW That Deco house in the back is a rare beauty;)

    We might have walked right past each other at the Top Rank or the Orchid, though I didn't get to either more than a couple of times!


    Shopped there once of twice - I seem to remember my g/f of the time fancied a walk round Richmond Park.

    Welcome Chis.

    Great pics, fellas.

    Loved the description of ...'we were going for a fight' - priceless. :D

    What is even more interesting and entertaining of course, was that it happened - up here, too - in the day when no one had mobiles, yet, punch-ups would be organised and a failure to attend would lead to a severe loss of face - if not literally then definitely metaphorically. :satisfied:

    Brilliant stuff.:)

    I thought I recognised the Area.Some were old adversaries to us-at some point-,in the 60s(I lived in Guildford) and I can remember some of the rows we had.then....:).


    You mentioned the Alphabet Club(I remembered somebody saying about that Club in Soul Source-Chris L).I read about the visits and agreed with what had been put.By `70 the Jamaican Clubs were becoming less welcoming.I stopped going to them in `69 because of this.I never went to the Que Club in Paddington nor the Four Aces in Dalston because they both had a very bad reputation.


    Purley Orchid and The Cats Whiskers,Streatham-plus The Hammersmith Palais.


    Interesting to see the Girls wearing the Gear.

    I dated a girl in Guildford and we went to the Guildford Plaza, think it may have been also called The A Train.

    Welcome Chris,

    At this time, would you have described yourselves as 'skinheads'?

    Her name was Jan Kemp, she lived on the Belfields estate, had a mate called Pam. To my eternal shame I still have about 2 or 3 records of her I borrowed but never returned. Love to track her down.

    Good photo, McDermott. I think that might well be at the bottom of Aytoun Street, not far from the Wheel. The building in the background looks to be what was the Manchester Colllege of Commerce (later the Polytechnic and now part of Manchester Metropolitan University I think). Might have been a girl's school you can see behind that but not sure. Hair looks a bit longer to me than would commonly be later that year (ditto turn-ups). Jacket in foreground looks like cord Wrangler that was everywhere round Manchester 69-70 (including mine).

    I remember well the Wrangler Cord jacket too. it was all the rage here a bit later in the 70s.
    Even if i was a small kid then, i remember my older brother and his friends wore them. They existed in a range of colors, and i think they had wide lapels.
    I wear cord jacket with jeans regularly. A nice smart casual look.
