Looking sharp!

Brownhills High Street, outside the legendary Joe’s sweet shop. Looking at the fashions, I’d say early 80s. Anyone know anything about this?

I’ve been sent the above image by a reader who wishes to stay anonymous, and they’ve told me nothing about it whatsoever. I’d love to know more about it. Looking at the filename, I think it’s originated on Facebook.

A group of five lads outside Joe’s on the High Street (remember the legendary ice cream?) – note JC Lote’s jeweller behind, and behind that, Ashe and Nephew off-license. On the rear right, note the belcote of the Co-op store.

Looking at the drainpipe jeans, jackets and hair I’d say it’s early 80s. Definitely looking sharp…

I particularly like the dart board in the shop window. I forgot Joe’s sold toys and games too.

A fascinating thing. Anyone know any more? If you’re in this photo, please tell me about it…
