My little sister is one of the Southsea Skifflers who had their latest session yesterday morning – and great fun it was again (there are other regular bloggers too)
She brought me a hand-made (by her) 60s poster from St Margaret’s Youth Club in this vintage shopping bag. Maybe it’s time for more fashion items in these histories?
I’m not sure of the date but the ‘phone number is indicative: Portsmouth 29121
Incidentally ref tracing locations – I’ve been looking through some 1960s Kelly’s Directories today in the library, and from 1960-1969 in the Cumberland Buildings was the Court School of Dancing. At no time was it identified as the Birdcage/Brave New World/Pack – so in a strict sense it’s not always a reliable source of information because it appears to be more about ownership than what’s there (I couldn’t find Shirt King either although Smartwear did show from 1955)
