Longtime reader. First time poster. Just score this OCBD from a local thrift store. But it's missing it's maker's label. Wondering if neone in this thread might have a clue.
Usual question re copyright for the book.
Ditto for the bunch of photos posted by Pequod - copyright details?
Interesting to see a little kid with her hair in a centre crop.
Nice to see the Spotted Tie Combination(I had a Burgundy with White Spots one).It was not always just striped Ties-as portrayed later.
Some more photo's of the infamous Roscoe of Willesden, who got a mention in Adam Ant's autobiography, And made an appereance in these 2 famous pics:
Thanks to Gabriela for posting them on the Ballroom Blitz.

I think I remember you once said in this thread that you hung out with a few lads from Willesden a few times, did you ever heard of this fella?
Sorry MoM, except the links I have no further information. The copy right of the pictures have probably the people who have uploaded them on "Friends Reunited"
Rosco was a well known member of the Willesden...he was older than most Skinheads back then...not sure how old he was in say 69.....His name was all over NW London in graffiti....am sure he probably did not do all the graffiti though....I suppose his name was the original tag.
As said above Stuart Goddard/Adam Ant does mention him in his Autobiography, But Stuart gets confused with what mob got in the Country Club...also known as Caesars...The club was in Belsize Park NW London. being close to Kilburn it was one of the first clubs us then young skinheads went to...No alcohol was sold in there ..so we would steam a off licence on the way..and smuggle drink in.
Some of my best memories are from that club.
You can try google reverse search and see where they have been posted elsewhere online and contact all the leads I suppose if you wanted to use the pictures that badly.
No Roscoe was not there,but I do remember one of the Blacks(outside the Pub)though.
If you could find out any details, like names, email address, or any other details, I would be grateful.
You're taking the piss?
