Summary
Poplar Memories is a vivid impression of Cockney London before and during the Second World War, set in a teeming, rundown docklands neighborhood famous for being, well, one end of the Blackwall Tunnel. John Hector's spellbinding account of his early life in the 1920s and '30s conjures up a vanished era when simplicity and happiness went hand-in-hand. Halcyon days of "talking pictures" and pavement buskers, Saturday night knees-ups round the piano, eel and pie stalls, chimneysweeps, "boxers, " Clarnico's toffees and Lloyd Loom furniture, and a little shop called Woolworth's selling "nothing over sixpence"{u2014}unless it's a shilling. All this was to disappear forever in the horrors of the Blitz. The author was disabled by infantile paralysis{u2014}yet he became School Captain and embarked on a successful career at 14, surviving extreme poverty, panel doctors, dockers' riots, and Hitler's Luftwaffe with an unshakeable belief in the ordinary people of Poplar
