Hipstery Repeats Itself

My obsession with the Victorian/Edwardian eras does not end with design and architecture alone. I recently came upon this article in the Daily Mail UK about an act passed in 1902 allowing police to arrest anyone they felt was acting drunk and douchey in public. It's interesting to see how, over a century later, things haven't really changed that much. Doesn't 'Dirty Dick' look like he just stumbled out of Pop's bar on his way to spin records at the Knockout?
