Benz Skateboard Advert ScanIf my memory is right, I think Benz was one of those skate shops set up by the parents of a skater. I’m not sure how long they survived. Interesting to note Vision Streetwear in there alongside the likes of H Street. They also seem to be selling brands like Levis and Pepe, making me wonder, in hindsight, whether this might have been an off-shoot of a clothing shop. The shape of things to come… There’s a game you can play tagging what each of the skate craze booms was actually about: seventies = skateboarding, eighties = surf clothing, nineties = shoes and so on.
