Skinheads in Focus

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago I received a magazine that I had wanted for years! I was always asking for it here and there and nothing, but that very moment I stopped looking for it, I saw it and bought it and, of course, I had to share it with you all.

The magazine is called Mirabelle and it dates May 1970. The article, as the title of this post says, is “Skinheads in Focus” and it shows us the simple but smart skinhead style. However, only the description of the girls’ clothes is available. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did!
