Ken Russell london teddy girls = how cool !! i found the original Hipsters this morning !! Teddy boys and girls from London in the 1950's : Teddy Boy (also known as Ted) is a British subculture typified by young men wearing clothes that were partly inspired by the styles worn by dandies in the Edwardian period, styles which Savile Row tailors had attempted to re-introduce in Britain after World War II. The subculture started in London in the 1950s, and rapidly spread across the UK.
