A group of Teddy boys hang around on the Old Kent Road at Elephant and Castle, South London, 13th July 1955.

I love how dark and moody this image is as I feel it really portrays the Teddy Boy look, I may take this into consideration for my portrait. I also like the idea of the cigarette as I feel it adds a very rebellious feel, paired together with the slick back hair and the Teddy Boy suit.
