3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a 60's Childhood more a 1960 childhood, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A 1960s East End Childhood (Kindle Edition)
Because of the author's age his childhood appeared to be over in the early 60's and therefore perhaps not as objective as someone who actually spent that decade as a child. As such there are some differences between the author's recollections and mine. I grew up in the adjoining district of Forest Gate and went to school from 1959 to 1970 and had mixed classrooms of black and Asian children from certainly 1962 onwards.
I would have liked to read more about the immediate local area and seen more photographs.
The there is one major niggle that may be down to poor editing and that is the compass directions in quite few places appear to be reversed. For example the river Lee is described as being to the West of London when it is in fact to the East.
