City started as a bit of a hobby and my attempt to provide a few interesting
and informative pages for education and reminiscence. It is now about 20
years old, in various forms, and remaining a non-profit hobby carried out
in my increasingly limited 'spare' time. Many subjects appearing within
the site are now pretty well complete and definitive, such as the music
charts pages. Others, such as my 'History of the Pop Pirates', are subject
to periodic enhancement and adjustment and are as accurate as I can make
them using information from many sources (often a consensus of opinion!),
including your personal input. There are now hundreds of pages here on varied
aspects of the decade that I hope you will find attractive, entertaining
and informative. There are lots of articles from contributors and also many
links to other external sites which, in many cases, specialise and expand
on specific Sixties subjects that, so far, I may have only touched on briefly.
If you have any unique insights or personal memories / anecdotes that you
would like to provide and see on these pages, please get in touch.
This site deals mainly with the British Sixties although, of course, these changes were happening to a greater or lesser extent throughout much of the world at the time, particularly America, and there were many cross-cultural exchanges of fashion, ideas and music, that are also included. For various areas of information, please click on the subject link of interest below - or just scroll down the page. Otherwise..... just get yourself back to the main content and, as I do, enjoy some of the magic and memories of the Sixties!
I have been slowly refurbishing all the pages to introduce some consistency to the site and improve the quality of some of the original pages. This takes a while, being a 'one man band' and optimal values sometimes change in the middle of a series of updates so therefore aspect ratios on some of the pages may differ, temporarily - but I'm getting there. All the pages are now being reconstructed for best viewing at 2560 x 1440 landscape format to suit Windows 10 and widescreen monitors - this may take a while to complete and there may be differences in page views while this is being done - hopefully this will not spoil your enjoyment and will be the last major change.
The menu system has now been updated and improved to align with the new site location - sorry for any inconvenience. I hope you didn't have too much trouble finding the site - Sixties City is now a 'net' instead of a 'com' and it has not been possible to put in a 'gateway' page, but you will find access to the site a lot easier and more reliable now. Please update any links to the site that you may have - just change '.com' to '.net' - the page names are the same.
If you have visited before, file locations and content do occasionally change so I strongly recommend that you refresh pages when you revisit at any time.
This is genuinely a non-profit site - just a hobby - which is why you will be largely untroubled by advertising, banners, pop-ups etc. Any small income generated from retail sites is to support Sixties City's continued upkeep and growth. I do love you visiting, but I am slowly discovering that there is a price to be paid for popularity! I try to check the content, suitability and safety of any linked sites and visit them all before linking to them, but I cannot accept responsibility for either should you wish to go there and start tracking around.
Text description would be something like:
Sixties City - Bringin' on back the good times!
The home of the music, memories and magic of the most fun and exciting decade in history. Hundreds of pages on all aspects of the 1960s.
I have virtually
no information regarding copyright contacts for images used on the site
- I haven't kept a record!! - but I have seen most of the images in various
locations on the internet, many with no copyright contact information - you
may be able to turn something up if you use something like Google image search.
I am using them to illustrate the articles purely for interest and fan purposes,
but if I have upset anyone through their use, please advise me and I
will either remove them or be only too pleased to give credit to the copyright
owner if that is acceptable, bearing in mind that this is a non-profit site
- I'm not in the business of stealing your income or ownership.
I DO OWN THE COPYRIGHT for 'Sixties Girl' and for all ORIGINAL text and creative graphics on these pages and I will protect them if I have to, but I'm easy going...... If you want to reproduce any of my own stuff, by whatever means, please ask. I'll probably say yes - but it would just be nice to be asked and to know where it is going! The same offer applies to sound files, particularly original recordings and midi file authors, with whose work I am totally impressed. Registered names and logos obviously remain the copyright of the particular owners. Again, I only reproduce them for interest purposes and the same condition applies.
There are pages now appearing on the site where copyright of text, and some images, are held by the contributors, such as the Bill Harry pages - these are generally indicated on the page and should not be reproduced without their expressed permission. To anyone who does hold copyrights on any of these and lets them stay on here, a very big Thank You! I would also like to pay tribute to the authors of the many books and web sites I have looked at while putting this together as I can now appreciate, even if only to a small extent, the amount of work involved.
