Tales of London Docklands by Henry T. Bradford
Book Description"Tales of London's Docklands" is an anthology of true stories, drawn from Henry Bradford's personal experience as a Registered Docker in the Port of London - when traffic through the docks was at its peak. Life as a docker was not for the faint hearted: men were killed and injured every day, and the work was physically extremely arduous. Despite this, there was a spirit of camaraderie, and close teamwork was essential in the ship and quay gangs. Now that the Docklands regeneration is virtually complete, and the landscape has been transformed, it's important that memories of day to day life in the past are preserved. Henry Bradford's vivid anecdotes bring this lost world to life. "Tales of London's Docklands" will appeal to anyone whose relatives worked as dockers, to social historians, and to anyone with an interest in the history of London's East End.
