Cool Pictures

In order to honour MG Ace Face, and to carry the torch for the (hopefully short) time while he's gone (and I'm confident he'll return), let's revive Motown's thread, which is far too good to be forgotten...

Here's to you, Mr Motown!

    • That picture says it all really, great image Billy.

    • Cool, calm and collected. A reflective reminder of many a young mans roots...

    • Young Mod Bedroom Essentials!


    • Or milennial aged Hipster's?



  • Definitely a cool picture and a brilliant album to match.

  • This image from the mod scene, is in my top ten favourites ever. Cool as f...!


    • That is a brilliant snap Gary and one that I have never seen before. A combination of cool and humorous, plus a reflection of those wonderful days when smoking was good for your health ha ha

    • Lol! You were not cool unless you had a ciggy hanging out your mouth, Chris. Ha, ha.

      I first spotted this great image in Paul 'Smiler' Anderson's book, Mods: The New Religion. I love the simple but very sharp, stripped back, casual day look.

      Another great image that takes me right there is the one from Terry Rawlings' book, with the two lads on a scooter. The passenger is leaning back with his arms out, I've never seen that unique shot outside of Terry's book. I had a brilliant shot of my much younger self at a Weston Super Mare scooter run. I was stood posing behind two proper 1970's, six foot coppers. For the life of me I just can't find it anywhere, I reckon that my mum, being the good citizen that she is, destroyed it. Thinking the photo far too anti-establishment and fearing that her son would get carted off in a Black Maria. God knows what she would have thought if she had found my dexy's and bluey's stash ;0)
