This is a visual record of the British people's habits of dress from the Victorians to Britpop. Social history is reflected in the outfits of the time, from the wartime austerity of the 1940s to the new couture of the 1950s. It takes us on a fascinating journey through a hundred years of fashion and style, both on the London catwalks and on the streets of ordinary towns. This is a celebration of punk rock and rockers since the early 1970s. 500 images from the MirrorPix archives illustrate the world of punk rock, capturing the atmosphere of gigs and venues, at festivals and in the recording studio. News pictures expose the hard-living, anarchic lifestyle of punk musicians and their transition into more acceptable members of society; the fashions and colourful hairstyles of punks; and, the conflicts with other cultural groups such as Teddy boys and football hooligans.
