FROM THE ARCHIVES: 1971

From the truly embarrassing Press files archive : 1971, I think it fair to say that everyday 'dress-up' for young people took a massive leap forward with the 'Psychedelic' 60's and the 'Glam' 70's ... going onwards. I recall my 'image thing' was somewhere between being Spartacus, the rebel slave .... and Atahualpa, the Inca Ruler! I had molded copper arm-bands, bracelets, and necklaces made .... stuff that Kirk Douglas would have been proud to wear .....
