Mods and All that
2nd Generation Tilbury Mods circa 1978-1987
Tilbury like all other towns had it’s own youth sub cultures going on in the 1970’s and 80’s and I’d imagine through the 1960’s and earlier too. My time coincided with the 2nd generation of Mods late 1978 – 1983. During which time I kept a diary and took a fair few photo’s.
Our haunts were ‘The Bench’ near the traffic lights in the town centre and the Riverside Youth club at the time when Eve Sansom Shaw was the manageress. Recently there was a reunion that I didn’t go to, but much of the lead up to it involved the posting of old pictures on Facebook. Many people requested that I release some of my images from the period and it gave me an idea to compile a photo-book. As part of the project to see if there was a genuine interest in the idea I started a blog on which I posted some small resolution images.
