MOD: Fashion Characteristic of British Young People in the 1960s

Mod is a subculture that began in the United Kingdom in the 1960s and spread, in varying degrees, to other countries and continues today on a smaller scale. Focused on music and fashion, the subculture has its roots in a small group of London-based stylish young men in the late 1950s who were termed modernists because they listened to modern jazz, although the subculture expanded to include women.

Here is a collection of black and white photos showing mods on streets in the 1960s.
