5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent write up of the 50's, so few authors have captivated the years following the war and the following 10 years in London's east end so well I think the first author to get the real taste of the 50's (so far not forthcoming - this is the closest) the Innocence, the first this and the first that. I was a new 'teenager' 15 in 1955 when the phrase was first used - prior to that it was a stiff upper lip society on rations!
I enjoyed this book for the knowledge I learned as I knew very little about gangsters and their haunts, but I did know Hoxton etc and it describes it spot on. The girl Frances was typical of the age, swept along by the glamour to start with and unable to shake it off. Most of us moved from boyfriend to boyfriend without any sexual knowledge what so ever - and the boys were fairly innocent too in most cases. Also we lived within our own area as mostly we walked every where - very fit of course!
