If you're into mid-century British youth culture -- and who isn't? -- you probably know all about Teddy Boys, the rock 'n roll dandies in long jackets and creepers. But perhaps you didn't realize there was a whole subculture of Teddy Girls, too.
A celebration of the styles, sounds and fashions of subcultures from all eras - from the mod, suedehead & skinhead axis to the teds, rockers and cafe racers story through to punk and the NYC gangs that pre-dated hip hop.
