Carnaby Street

Handwritten page of a diary dated June 13, 1970

Don’t get me wrong, I like ALMOST ALL British stuff. Not just the Beatles, but Cream and the Kinks and the Yardbirds. And Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton.

So my Aunt Kathy says she’s going to London, and do I want her to bring anything back? I thought about it awhile, then gave her strict instructions to go to Carnaby Street and find something really MOD, something you couldn’t find in the United States.

What does she come back with? A purple paisley mini dress? Some long orange boots? Op art bell bottoms? No. She comes back with a red telephone purse. “Why aren’t you happy?” she said. “This is something you couldn’t find in the United States.”
