very interesting!, 1 Dec. 2010
As a Londoner I found this book fascinating. Being born in Palmers Green and living in Teddington for 20 years and losing a godmother in the blitz of 1940 it was amazing to learn how life in the Docks and the east side of London affected the whole of the life of the City. So many historical nuggets - Hays Wharf so old and still working: Isle of Dogs - possible reason for name: so interesting if you like history and want to know more about your city.
