    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The closest the High Street has come yet to the kind of plain blue surfer jacket I knew in 67/68. ('Selected', John Lewis, St James Centre, Edinburgh, April 9th.)

    l think the guy in front of Gus is Alan Shepard. I don't see Armstrong however. Also, bearing in mind that Grissom dropped his body in 1967 , when was he part of Armstrong's crew. .?



    Just curious like. .

    Had a look for this in passing today and found two jackets fairly similar. One was raglan-sleeved made from a matt material, looking and feeling a bit like that of a Tyvek overall, with same-width knit collar, cuffs and hem. I presume you mean this one? The other had set-in sleeves, was made from a lighter shinier material (looked and felt more like the early 70s version I knew) and the knit collar and hem were about half the width of the cuff (which looked a bit 'wrong'). Or is there a third version out there?

    Sunday mornings during the 80's,Brick Lane was a regular stroll for me.It always felt like it was frozen in time in a period somewhere between the 50's and 60's.Old men in flat caps,gaberdine coats with a bit of string for a belt.Everyone scratching a living .Stark contrast to The trendy markets a Portobello and Camden.

    Are the Coventry skins seen in the picture revivalists? I always thought they were from the original era.

    Looks very much like Armstrong next to Grissom. Not part of the same mission crew, but I'm sure all the NASA fellas hung out together as a crew.
