EDITORS COMMENTS
Ulla Street Boot Boys, Middlesbrough 1970s: A Gritty Portrayal of Northern Teenage Tribe This evocative photograph captures the essence of the Ulla Street Boot Boys of Middlesbrough during the 1970s. The image, taken by renowned photographer Robin Dale, depicts a group of teenage lads, clad in overcoats and iconic bovver boots, gathered on a dimly lit street. Their expressions are serious, their postures defiant, and their body language speaks volumes about the camaraderie and sense of belonging that defined this urban tribe. The 1970s in Middlesbrough, a town in the northeast of England, was a time of social and economic change. Unemployment was high, and the area was known for its gritty, working-class atmosphere. The Ulla Street Boot Boys were just one of many teenage gangs that emerged during this period, a response to the challenges and uncertainties of the time. The image of the Boot Boys, with their distinctive footwear and overcoats, became a symbol of the era. The bovver boots, with their heavy soles and thick rubber toes, were a practical choice for the rough terrain of the streets. The overcoats, with their collars turned up against the cold, were a statement of defiance and a mark of belonging to the tribe. This photograph is a powerful reminder of the resilience and spirit of a generation of teenagers who came of age in a time of change and uncertainty. It is a snapshot of a moment in history, a glimpse into the past, and a testament to the enduring power of community and friendship.
