When punk broke I was a teenager and I had a Sunday job in Petticoat Lane market. We sold pub mirrors - those ones with pictures and slogans on. Our stall was packed with very fragile glass.
One weekend a new stall opened nearby. It stocked punk clothes, selling the early bondage trousers, ripped and safety pinned t'shirts etc. We thought nothing of it.
A few weeks later, a gand of Teddy boys turned up and trashed the punk stall. Each and every week after that , these guys turned up to trash the stall and as the weeks went by, more and more punks turned up to defend it.
Imagine being a fifteen year old kid trying frantically to protect a stall full of glass from a mob of punks and Teds.
