    Unless I'm very much mistaken, this photo is of a National Front march that was held in Bolton in Sept/Oct 1971. The NF arranged the march on a day when Bolton Wanderers were at home to Blackburn Rovers (both towns with large numbers of Asian immigrants) A local derby that would guarantee that there were lots of 'likely lads' in town. Sadly, an early example of how the right wing would try to influence/capitalize on some aspects of skinhead attitudes. Bolton is in Greater Manchester, but fashion wise would be some months behind central Manchester. In a couple of days I'll post details of a little escapade involving t'Wanderers - be of interest to you Chelsea lads!

    It's beginning to get a little Silly on here now, and to be frank a little boring (Well the petty Snide dig's here and there at least).

    Ah the downfall of many a good internet Forum.

    TOUCH-UP..........White Horse, Church Road NW10
    Original photo taken by Infamous Willesden photographer 'Smut the Leg' - due to having half a shandy prior to taking the photo Smut's shakes has resulted in an out of focus picture.

    Well so much for Scruffy Northerners then, though London was the Pinnacle of Style, look like tatty herberts to me :)

    Gold Dust none the less.

    I have said before,there were scruffy Skinheads during the 60s,whether it was North or South.But as with other things,it does tend to get shouted down.:)
