Street and the Kings Road
new enlarged maps and updated information, with dozens of new images.
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. The Kings Road and carnaby
Street maps have taken many months to research, have now been enlarged
for easier viewing and are fairly frequently updated with dozens of
new locations and images added with information from you!
As always, if you find any incorrect details (hopefully few) or can
provide new or further information, I'd love to hear from you! I
need information and answers to questions on various Sixties items

My 'Top 300' records of the British record charts of the 1960s

Funny Fools - The story of a pop group
formed in in 1960s Hungary
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.
