About Book

In this voyage, C. Douglas Woodward takes his readers on a journey that starts in a garden in the Barbican, the architectural tour de force at the heart of the City of London. He tells how the minstrels and waits made their home in medieval Cripplegate and how the corset-makers and feather-boa merchants plied their trades in 1920s Fore Street.

Woodward recalls his forebears in Krakov, Berlin, London's East End and the Medway towns and his own schooldays of the 1930s – so utterly different from those of today.

He describes a Fleet Street now vanished, his battle against arsonists, the fight to save the City's old buildings from obliteration and his long-standing involvement in Guildhall government culminating in his election as Chief Commoner of the City of London.
