I Love 1974
Fashion

Helmet - hiding the evidence


Birthday suits

1974 was the year to go naked - if only because of the emergence of the polyester lounge suit.

Streakers became a standard fixture at sports events, appeals for nudist beaches grew, and those ashamed of their figure, got on their exercise bikes in a bid to look good ‘in the buff’.

Policemen soon found a new use for their helmets!
