Pics are nice, but this quote from an interview with the photographer is (unintentionally) laughable:

"Their subculture draws influence from Italian jazz music, clothing and scooters, and emerged in the UK in the late 1950s, particularly in diverse, multicultural areas." Besides, I think he's mistaken London for the whole UK.

I'll second that. What's with the cheap cans of lager? If I was a smart skinhead I'd be going mental at the thought that those were the poster boys for my subculture. The Mods look good (of course).

Yup - although I think Freyja from JtG & her hubby Billy look smart in the top Skinhead photo (I may be a little biased as I know them)
Grammar = the difference between knowing your s**t, and knowing you're s**t!
