Lambeth Walk Leads to Paris, is journalist and broadcaster, Peter Weston’s fourth volume of nostalgic recollections from his early days in London during and around World War Two.
Tradesmen, public transport, Hollywood–inspired fashions and seaside guest houses are just some of the topics that Peter recounts in his own unique style. Those of a certain age will, undoubtedly, feel a warm glow as memories of rag–and–bone men, cinema usherettes, gasmen and entertainment celebrities are recalled. Younger readers will, hopefully, be inspired by the community spirit shown during Britain’s darkest hours, and, that despite having little (by today’s standards), people were still able to have fun. People of all ages will, almost certainly, exclaim, “Blimey! Hasn’t the world changed since then!”
