eBay watch: Glasgow Gang Observed

Glasgow

It's one of the hardest mod-related books to find – and there's a copy of James Patrick's A Glasgow Gang Observed on eBay right now for 95p.

You can read a brief piece on it here, but to sum up, it's an academic book about Glasgow gangs in the 60s and their activities – carrying swords down the side panels of their scooters, and having razor blades stitched into the lapels of their suits for example.

Published in 1973, never re-printed and offered right now on eBay for that 95p price…at least, at the moment.
