Today’s photo is a snapshot of a young man in his twenties standing pensively in Camden Town, London. He’s wearing a striking green patterned coat, and he leans against a red brick wall with one hand resting gently on a nearby chair.
Looking at this photo, I can’t help but wonder what the young man is thinking about. Perhaps he’s contemplating his future, or maybe he’s lost in thought about his past.
After hearing the sad news that Terry Hall passed away I had to dig up these photos for you. There were so many nice messages on Mastodon this morning on the #TerryHall hashtag I think a lot of people will be interested to see the actual car that was used in the Ghost Town video.
The car was found in a very bad state of disrepair and was lovingly restored by fans who volunteer at the museum.
The bedroom has a huge number of posters and just stuff that you’ll recognise if you grew up in the UK or Ireland in the 80s.
The guitar is a Fender Telecaster that was signed by all The Specials prior to their return in 2008.
The organ was used by Jerry Dammers in Ghost Town.
This is only a selection of what’s there in the museum. If you’re around Coventry it’s well worth a visit!
Information for visitors in Birmingham, in the middle of the Bull Ring!
It wasn’t raining. It was a hot day with the sun beating down. Why don’t more people carry umbrellas in conditions like this? Arguably, getting skin cancer is a lot worse than getting an occasional wetting by rain.
