Every week around 100,000 people visit Portobello Road's amazing
market, it's been like that for over 50 years, it's one of London's most
famous streets and I grew up there during the 40s, 50, and 60s.
At that time Portobello was full of danger from Teddy Boys, razor gangs, muggers (cosh boys), street fights, race riots, neo-Nazis, slum landlords and spivs. Not to mention hardened criminals and killers.
Also during that time the antiques and collectables industry throughout England exploded into being and attracted buyers from all over the world.
This book is a personal view of how all of these elements grew to become an internationally recognised attraction. I was there, I saw it all first hand, I played my own part and knew most of the 'names'.
This is not a history book, it's a narrative of an amazing phenomenon that will never happen again. It's also a very amusing read, with over 100 specially commissioned illustrations.
