'Rockers' at the Busy Bee transport caf��, Watford - Photograph

Description:
Riding heavy motorbikes and wearing thick leather jackets, gangs of 'rockers' congregated at this transport caf��, the Busy Bee. On the Watford by-pass, it was a popular haunt for the rockers, who could play their rock-n-roll music on the jukebox. One amusement was to select a record on the jukebox, then race down to the first roundabout and back again before the track ended. An annual reunion is held at the site of the former Busy Bee caf�� in the Watford Hilton Hotel. Terrence Spencer worked for Life Magazine photographing youth culture during the 1960s.
