Ace Times Book - Available Now!

Posted on


Now available at the cafe and from the Ace Cafe's web shop, and celebrating the 10th anniversary of the cafe having fully reopened, the comprehensive new book "Ace Times, speed thrills and tea spills, a cafe and a culture" relates and illustrates the definitive history of London's Ace Cafe, a roadside pull-in that opened in 1938 and became the most famous haunt of the motorcycle riding "Ton-up kids" in the 50s and the Rockers in the 60s.  The book also tells the story of other venues and cafes, like the 59 club, the Busy Bee and others elsewhere around the country.
A substantial high quality hardback publication, over seventy years in the making, packed with personal recollections and evocative photographs, Ace Times also features the fastest motorcycles, the loudest music, the iconic movies and the distinctive clothing and styles of the cafe racing era.  Burn ups, press hysteria, rock n roll riots, police baiting, Mods and Rockers, pirate radio, and loads more besides, all unambiguously revealed.
Mick Duckworth, the author of this hard-bound publication from Redline Books, will be signing copies at Ace Cafe London on Sunday 24th April (Norton & BSA Day) and on the Ace stand on Southend seafront Easter Monday 25th April, occasion of the cafe's 13th annual Southend Shakedown.
