Hi sorry for the late replies I am just going to give but I couldnt get back in having lost my password.

blackprince, yes my hair was odd shaped laugh/
I used to cut it myself. I have some great photos
of being a mod but still dont know how to put photos
on this site so you will just have to imagine what it
looked like

LS13, Three Coins was a coffee bar upstairs and the
dancing took place downstairs. I used to drink orange
juice. You had to get tanked up somewhere cheap at
Yates Wine Lodge and Whitelocks. The others did do the
drugs but I was a good girl laugh. You had to be 21 to
drink in those days and being a young looking girl and
small it was hard for me to get away with looking 21 with
white lipstick on even when I was 30 laugh.

I also still have a photo, although a little faded that was
taken in City Square of all the users of that time who went
to the clubs Nobody was afraid to tell you or admit in
in those days to other kids. Probably didnt tell their
parents though.

Me too- i'm sure it was very fetching.
Vidal Sassoon died recently and they mentioned his signature lop sided cut from the 1960's about the same time as Armley Lass recalled her mod haircut. I remember Vidals shop on Briggate(?) in the mid 60's with very large B&W photos of that haircut. Very different from the beehive style which was popular a few years earlier. That exhausts my knowledge of ladies hairstyles -almost non-existant- as my wife will confirm.

It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

I am hoping to attach a photo of my hair, unfortunately you cannot see the cut side on this photo and will try and find it. I have about 3,000 photos to sort through laugh.

Well done ArmleyLass47. It was a great feeling when I managed to do my first post with a photo (it took me long enough to work out how to do it!).

PS. Nice cut. Regular Smiley

Congrats on passing that milestone Armley Lass ( 1st photo posted!).
1 down only 2999 to go! Maybe Leodis would be interested in some of your photos from that era. I sent them some of mine from the 60's & early 70's which they have used. None of my 60's hairstyle though which is best left to the imagination! Laugh

I managed to find the photo I mentioned of the IN crowd of the Three Coins in about 64/66. Dont know how many of them are alive now.
Will try and get it on and hope its not like the biggest photo in the World. I am not on the photo as I wasnt in the IN crowd. Hey ho here we go!!!!!
