The Teds Published by Dewi Lewis, 2003 reprint Signed Hard Cover. In early 1954, on a late train from Southend, someone pulled the communication cord. The train ground to a halt. Light bulbs were smashed. Police arrested a gang dressed in Edwardian suits. In April two gangs, also dressed Edwardian-style, met after a dance. They were ready for action: bricks and sand-filled socks were used. Fifty-five youths were taken in for questioning. The following August Bank Holiday the first 'Best Dressed Ted Contest was held. The winner was a twenty-year-old greengrocers assistant. The Teddy Boy myth was born. The Teddy Boys were a flashily dressed, rebellious and sometimes violent youth movement that originated in Britain in the '50s. The three-quarter-length Edwardian jacket with velvet collar, drainpipe trousers and quiff became a focus of male fashion which still holds cult status today. The Teds combines image and text to tell their story -- a fascinating tale spanning three decades. Originally published in 1979, and re-published by Dewi Lewis. A classic of British documentary photography, it is a vivid and absorbing book combining the images of Chris Steele-Perkins with a text by Richard Smith, to tell a fascinating story that spans some three decades. Chris Steele-Perkins is a member of the prestigious Magnum Photos. He has published eight books and exhibited worldwide. His reportages have received high public acclaim and won several awards, including the Tom Hopkinson Prize for British Photojournalism, the Oscar Barnack Prize, the Robert Cappa Gold Medal and a World Press Award.
