The Throwbacks - Reliving the 50s

An exhibition by Julie Howden

This is a photographic study and celebration of ‘The Throwbacks’ - a subculture of Scots from east to west who are so devoted to the bygone decade they live their lives in the spirit of the 1950s.

They are acutely obsessed by the design, music and fashion of the postwar period - many of the key influences coming across the Atlantic from the United States, the social mores perhaps less so.

You would be mistaken, however, if you interpret this devotion for role-play. For the Throwbacks “this isn’t dress-up - this is our lives” (Gus Winton from Edinburgh). To be a Throwback means living and breathing the 1950s every day.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Throwbacks - Reliving the 50s are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
