Flash birds and diamond geezers.

It was a genuine street fashion that in no time at all had respectable folk convinced that the barbarians really were at the gates. Nothing had prepared post-war Britain for the Teddy Boy and nothing would ever be the same again. For a wonderful nostalgic look back at the days of drainpipes and brothel creepers and the good old boys and girls who keep the movement alive today, check out Edwardian Teddy Boys. You won't regret it.
And you can see some of Ken Russel's iconic Teddy Girl snaps here.
