    Also the pics of your Cousin are dead on, The shoes being worn are correct for the time, For some reason people believe 60s Skinhead girls wore loathers which i did not see.
    Its great to see photos not been seen before , nice one Alan.

    Yep i remember patent shoes on girls , monkey boots was worn sometimes by the little skinhead girls in 70.
    By 70 their was thousands of these little skinheads running around as young as11/13 they dressed different, more Boots Braces and Brutus. They was like little clones, All wearing Tartan check Brutus and Jaytex shirts, :D

    Great pics.

    On girls shoes, a girlfriend of mine in early 1968 (who had very wealthy parents) had a pair with the bar very much like the ones pictured. Hers were bright red and came from Anello and Davide in Oxford Street. She was clever, amusing and always beautifully dressed and was perhaps the only girl I ever missed after splitting up. I have no pics to share unfortunately.

    Wonderful, mate. It reveals the 'truth' about the look at that time - it was understated and not in yer face as so many now believe. Great.

    Just catching up on points raised:

    Jewellery - no it did not figure beyond a watch and perhaps a ring.

    Tattoos - not in my group.

    LPs - I remember how cool it was at school to walk around with 'Otis Blue' or 'Hold on I'm Coming' or whatever was in that week under your arm!

    The transition from Mod to Skinhead - yes, please let's have some more on this.

    Patent shoes definitely and often with a little bow or tie on the vamp. Usually, a rounded toe but slightly squared off if that makes sense!
