...of working life in the Port of London in the mid-twentieth century. Learn about the antics of Old Dave, Big Dave, Little Fred, Red Cap and The Doc at work and play in Sector 4. Will be of great interest to anyone whose ancestors worked on the docks, or who is interested in social, industrial and maritime history. The stories related in this book are gentle and playful, and unlike Len Burnett's Rogue Docker: A Life of Crime in Birkenhead Docks the strong language used by dock workers is almost entirely lacking from this work. It would therefore be suitable for use in teaching materials in most schools. Read in conjunction with Jack Dash's Good Morning, Brothers! it will form an ideal introduction to the lost culture of London's dock workers.
