    Also, another point I will make (I actually had it in a previous post but it got lost along with some other stuff I edited) is that arguing on the internet is like a couple of nuff nuffs having a slapping contest, it makes everyone involved look like a retard. While I understand that skinhead related stuff brings up alot of passion in people (and rightly so) it is still no reason to make things personal. I can understand how people can get possesive over periods of their life and I feel the same about the early Rave scene here in oz to some extent, but rather than use this experience to make myself out as some kind of legend, I much prefer to use it to instill a little excitement and sense of history in those that followed on.

    Also, to be just a little cheeky, if you reckon that Harrington with all the badges and patches on it makes you look the duck's nuts then I would be getting meself to the doctor's for a test or two on your grey matter just to make sure early senility isnae kicking in.

    hee hee. It's shocking. I think the only symbols missing off it is an 'anarchy' sign, and a 'ban the bomb' symbol.
    I shudder to think what's on the back of it. Maybe a big yellow acid smiley face [​IMG]

    Great pics Paul, note the lad in the braces, his trousers with the single front pleat and cash pocket, Most bespoke suits would be this style around 69, a clear carry over from the Mods, Flat fronted trousers was available but mostly Off the peg.

    Rand Cozens - a snappy dresser as a youth and a well respected man on the soul scene. Good find, Bunty.
    I was gonna post a couple more but the website won't let me for some reason.

    See ye at the weekend Mr TT.

    I got a good chuckle at that Harry with all the flair on it. Looks like a cross between those tiny ma1s they make for infants with fun commando patches all over them, and tacky sweatshop souvenir to show the world someone took a weekend vacation to skinheadville-land with the wife and kids.
    Cringeworthy indeed.

    Yeh, used to go to Lewis's - not John Lewis, btw - to the top floor where they had an exhibition hall, too.

    I even stuck a goal past City - and England's - Joe Corrigan up there, too.

    I f you track back on this site, you'll see my 'Gay Dolphin' memories and some pics of the Market Centre and New Brown Street, back in the late 60s-early 70s.

    Takis, Top of the Town, Spring Gardens and anywhere they'd let me in.

    I knocked about with Pat (RIP) and Mike Ginty, 'the Twins', Trev Tootie, Tex Bergen etc - all Woodhouse Park - and went to the United games with them and some Salford.

    A wee tip: start at the beginning of the thread, take your time and you'll get a feel for this place - and maybe (even) make a few friends. :nodding:
