Welcome to Sixties City - it's great to see you here and I do hope you enjoy your visit!
Last updated Sunday 7th July 2019     As I am still in the process of moving there will be no updates for a couple of weeks and response to queries may be a bit slow - thanks for bearing with me!
Thanks for visiting, and to all of you who have mailed me with questions, comments, information and your own personal memories. I've now been doing this for over twenty years and, although I'm finding less time to create major new items, they will still rock up now and then as there are still a few things I'm working on. Of course, I'll keep adding and changing bits here and there on a regular basis and there will occasionally be new articles from Bill Harry and contributions from other generous people such as Danny, Paul and Glenn. So, if you have any interesting or unique memories, pictures or anecdotes from the Sixties, please get in touch and maybe we can share and re-live them here at Sixties City! There are now well over 500 pages of great 60s-related information, sounds and images, including many unique articles and graphics, and you won't find it filled with adverts as it is a non-profit interest, not a business, although there may be the odd one or two to help cover maintenance costs (feel free to enquire). Do please note that the pages now appearing at the old '.com' location are completely unrelated to this site and I cannot hold any responsibility for any content or links used there. Best wishes always,

Did you ever visit, or live in or near, Soho or Chelsea in the Sixties? Or maybe you just wonder what it was like back then? Revisit and refresh some old memories - these graphical maps of Sixties Carnaby Street and the Kings Road will take you back in time. There are hundreds of images of people and locations, plus information about the boutiques, cafes, clubs and other establishments with unique maps showing you where they were. There is also a bit of history thrown in about the Soho and Chelsea areas for good measure.

Sixties City Jukebox
My 'Top 300' records of the British record charts of the 1960s - and a few 'bonus' tracks that didn't appear in the pop charts here for whatever reason.
Records here reflect my own personal choice, either through being Sixties icons, innovative, quirky . . .
Robin Hood, William Tell, Ivanhoe, Francis Drake, Sir Lancelot, The Buccaneers, Richard the Lionheart and many more.     . . . sounds I love or just records that hold a special memory for me.Listen and enjoy.

Sixties Bill Harry Presented here, in his own words, is the definitive story of one of the Sixties' seminal music papers - a fascinating and unique personal insight into the early days of the 'British Beat Boom'. Bill Harry was the original founder of the Liverpool music paper that chronicled the groups and venues responsible for the 'Mersey Sound', the publication that was to give its name to the Sixties phenomenon that has since become almost universally known as Merseybeat. These pages also feature over 210 articles from the pen of Bill Harry, providing his unique and informative view on many and varied aspects of Sixties events, personalities, music and culture, and personal interviews with the stars.

    Can you help with any of these enquiries?

Kings Road
In 1967 there was a petrol garage on the junction of Kings Road with Walpole Street. Does anyone have any information regarding this establishment?

Kings Road
Any information on Park Walk Garage? It can be seen in the reflection of this window (see reverse larger image) and appears to be in the block numbered 418 to 432 from the elaborate doorway to the right. Also, what is the name and number of the boutique pictured, showing the reflection in its window?

Mobile Boutique?
Looks like an old London double-decker bus was used as a 'mobile boutique' called 'Birds Paradise' London W1. Also in the window at the top is 'London Bus Shop'. Does anyone have any information regarding this unusual venture? Registration OLD 620

Does anyone have, or know the location of, a recording of 'On The Street Where You Live' by the Dave Macey Orchestra? It was the theme used by Dennis Straney on pirate Radio 270.

Kings Road - Joseph at Salon 33 Joseph Ettedgui moved from Casablanca to London with his brother Maurice in 1960 to train as a hairdresser. In 1962 they opened a hairdressing salon (Salon 33) in King's Road and their brother Franklin joined them in 1964. Any other information, particularly on exact opening date or who owns the rights to the image shown?    Kings Road - Chelsea Pet Stores
Was this even on the Kings Road? I'd be grateful for any information. A wider view of the road is available by clicking on the image.
   Guy Boutique
Maybe Sixties? Maybe Kings Road? Any information at all on this establishment would be appreciated. Someone must have shopped there?

Artistes appearing at Soho Clubs in the Sixties
Nick is trying to build a daily 'diary' of groups and artistes who appeared at various London / Soho club venues, specifically Bag O'Nails, Speakeasy, Revolution, Hatchetts, Blaises, Scotch of St James. Sibylla's and The Cromwellian. If you are able to supply any names with appearance dates to add to his compilation mail me and I will be happy to pass them on.

I'm still looking for photos of the old Colney Heath JMI school before its demolition. I attended there approx 1960 - 1967. Brilliant headmaster Tom Hodges.

Art Mystery
The two images on the right (enlargeable) are silk screens purchased from an art gallery in the Kings Road in the 60s. The owner cannot recall the artist or the gallery.
If you can help, or advise, please mail me with any information.
  
22 Did you work in the Casserole in the King's Road in the Sixties?
Yoshihisa Ito worked there during his stay in London, around 1966 and is looking for information about one of his colleagues called Carlos, a Spanish guy from Madrid. They were really good friends and they spent a great time together, working and enjoying London during that time. Also pictured is 'Amelia'. Can you help?
If so, please
mail me
