Andrew Davies is giving a talk on scuttling and the origins of the lads’ club movement as part of an open day at Salford Lads’ Club on Sunday 1 February. The talk is scheduled for two o’clock; the club will be open from noon till four.
Leslie Holmes of Salford Lads’ Club found this image in the club’s extensive archive of photographs. He sometimes refers to these four lads as “the original Smiths”. Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce famously posed in the club’s doorway in 1985 for a gatefold portrait for their album “The Queen Is Dead”.
