The caption of this PHOTO reads: 1 "... Many social changes occurred through Fifties popular culture. Even the skifflers here look faintly suspicious of the women choosing to jive on the pavement with one another, watched by a crowd of men."

3 "Other teenagers with inter changeable hats and sandals sip identical milk-shakes in identical poses. [not pictured]"
