Leicester Polytechnic Skateboard fashions


No, this isn’t an outtake form an episode of the Prisoner. It’s a June 6, 1978 press photo from Leicester Polytechnic School. Yes, it will soon be framed on my wall.

Three models wearing the latest in Skateboard fashions designed by the Leicester Polytechnic School of fashions and textiles. They are L-R Cindy wears multi-coloured knitted stripped sweater, shorts andd leggings. Stephanie wears Navy jumpsuit with velour stripe trim and bolero, and Debie wears multi-coloured two-piece in striped velour.

I’m going to hop in the old time machine and see if I can get a date with Cindy and tell Stephanie to get a damned skateboard and stop lurking. Maybe I’ll bring back her jumpsuit for GVK.

I have a fondness for Leicester City after spending a handful of days there in the early 90’s. I bought some really bad bootleg CD punk compilation featuring may hard to find bands that hadn’t been released on CD yet. When I got it home to the U.S. and played them… you could literally hear the turntable needle dropping onto the record to make the recording and the songs didn’t always match what was listed. It wasn’t like they were out of order, they were just completely different songs. Maybe that’s why I root for Burnley instead of Leicester City. Come On Burnley!


Be seeing you.
