Summary
This is Hackney seen through the eyes of a young working-class boy, who grew up in the area in the 1930s. It was an age when trams trundled down the streets accompanied by the clatter of horses' hooves as they pulled brewers' drays and coal carts; an age of art deco, cinemas and lidos. Life was simple; school in the week and visiting nearby relatives at the weekends. The facists appeared on the the streets of Hackney and barrage balloons, searchlights and guns were to be seen in Victoria park. War was on the horizon. At the time of the Munich Crisis, the author fulfilled his ambition to win a scholarship to a local grammar school only for the Second World War to come along and change everything..
