Originally publsihed in 1979, it tells a story spanning three decades. – In early 1954, on a late train from Southend, someone pulled the communication cord. The train ground to a halt. Police arrested a gang dressed in Edwardian suits. In April, two gangs, also dressed in Edwardian suits, met after a dance. They were ready for action: bricks and sand-filled socks were used. Fifty-five youths were taken in for questioning. The following August Bank Holiday the first ‘Best Dressed Ted Contest’ was held. The winner was a twenty-year old greengrocer’s assistant. The Teddy Boy myth was born. – New copy
