Recalling London East

Recalling London East

by Francis, Pat

Pat Francis's childhood was shaped by the Luftwaffe raids on London during WWII. In this delightful collection of poems she draws on her memories of nights in the air-raid shelter, and on the history of West Ham and Bethnal Green, — poverty, weavers, music hall, poets in Epping Forest. The poems are gathered into four groups: Some Londoners, Blitz, Five Victorian Vignettes, and In the Forest.
The poems are accompanied by eight line drawings by Jane Colling evoking memories of London in the past.
