The streets were full of costermongers and greasy-spoon cafes, but enlivened by ghettos of immigrants and student culture. Alec Forshaw worked in local government for 35 years and was conservation officer with the London Borough of Islington for 21 years. London in the early 1970s was where the lights shone brightest. Ideas of traffic constraint and recycling rubbish were in their infancy. This sequel to Growing Up in Cambridge portrays the London of over thirty years ago as it appeared to a young man in his twenties, finding his feet, coming of age, and stumbling across the sights and sounds of an extraordinary city. Following a sheltered childhood and a sequestered education in Cambridge, and having missed out on the swinging sixties, Alec Forshaw was ready for a dose of the wider world. Dudley Fishburn, Chairman of the Heritage of London Trust 2007 — 2017, is Vice-President.
