1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I thought City, too, mate.

    No more info, I'm afraid - just off a 'Tumblr' find. :(

    Pressure Drops comments just got me thinking? Like my memories,the collarless shirts and dyed vests were seemingly popular in the Midlands and Bristol but less so in other areas.One of the most popular areas for us to go on our Summer Holidays were the West Country.Newquay,Torquay were probably the top two.I know Stoke lads went to the North West and Wales.Cockneys went to Kent and Sussex.Maybe this is where the regional styles were shared and played a significant role alongside the Terraces?

    Firstly, I've been following this thread for a while and absolutely love it. Lots of great pictures and information. This is my first time posting though. I'm a skinhead girl from Canada and am starting a fanzine called Soul Time, covering the original style and music of the skinhead subculture. For an article I'm working on I'd like to talk to people that were into it around that time, especially from 1969-1971. If anyone would like to share any stories or pictures, or know anyone who would be interested, please email me at ajmartineau@hotmail.com. And for anybody interested in the fanzine, my first issue should be out around the end of May, but you can keep informed by "liking" facebook.com/soultimezine

    Thanks a lot!

    I was actually commenting on your "generalisation" Gsvs5.I do not back up my thoughts by one visit to the 100 Club.I have been to Clubs in Liverpool,Manchester,Sheffield etc.and I go regulary to a small Club in Lincoln-where young Mods go.I would say that the effort they have put in,is very commendable.These do not follow Weller(one of the things I find funny is 40+ year old Men with "feathered side bits,but then everyone to their own :)).Ok so there are ones that just throw things together but I could say all Northern Soul Fans now wear Baggy Trousers and have Beer Mats tucked into their Belts.Some still do though(when it is the umpteenth Wigan Casino Revival",but that is certainly not the case.).In the 60s there were scruffy Skinheads(I am not being regional here)even though the general concensus is they were smart.Look at the iconic Picture of 4 Skinheads walking past some Hippies in Piccadilly Circus.I would say they were scruffy.

    There are Youngsters who have gone back to the very ethos of Mod.Like Little Queenie , Ancillotti(probably spelt that wrong-sorry Mate) Buttons on here they have studied what was underneath the Hype and have taken PHDs in the Subject :)

    The Wrangler cord jacket / Wrangler jeans combination is actually very 1968 North of England.

    I'm avoiding posting a pic of myself (again!) with long sideburns! :D

    I love the idea of putting on a display somewhere like Margate Beach, roping off a part of the beach, and having the public watch a team of people dressed like skins and a team of people dressed like greasers pretend to beat each other up, while a bloke on a PA system explains to them what's going on!
    :D

    I must do better-regularly.


    Not seen too often in the original Photos but much more in the 70 Skinhead ones-woollen Skullcaps,that sat on the back of the head-with 1/2 inch roll back.I think I have seen a Picture on here-but where???? :)

    Hi Andrea. Good luck with the fanzine project. Having tried to get one off the ground myself in 1969, I know what a difficult job that can be.

    Really - never saw that coming. :D

    Seriously, it would never have crossed my mind and I do remember Man City launching that scarf - albeit difficult to identify in b/w - around 1971-ish... you live and learn. :nodding:

    Yes - but no 'tache and without the bottle-bottom bins, too.

    Dunno what it was that sent me blind... hairy palms, too. :embar:

    Have had the pleasure of Little Queenie and Ancelotti (that should scare 'em) and both are bang on the money. :nodding:
