Special Enquiry: the Teddy Boys

Mike, 17, is an improver welder with no ambitions other than to stay as he is, but have more money.

Pat wants to be rich, but feels that there are no interesting jobs for people his age.

Their pastimes include old wearing Edwardian clothes, doing their hair and spending time with their mates and their 'steadies'.
