Summary:
The story of Sally Worboyes' own family life in post-war Stepney is no less engrossing and dramatic than her gritty East London sagas. She grew up in a two-up, two-down with an outside lavatory and no hot water, where her parents raised four of their six children.

Abstract:

The story of Sally Worboyes' own family life in post-war Stepney is no less engrossing and dramatic than her gritty East London sagas. She grew up in a two-up, two-down with an outside lavatory and no hot water, where her parents raised four of their six children. Bursting with memories both warm and troubling, she tells of days spent "raking" the East End streets for useful scraps or crowding into her family's parlour rooms for hard-earned Saturday tea. As well as the tribulations that come with poverty, Sally's love for the old East End and its people shines through. Affectionate yet honest, this is probably Sally's most gripping saga yet - and every word is true.
