Dee Gordon's new book is the unique and fascinating result of many conversations with Southendians, recalling life in their town during the 1950s and '60s. Vivid memories are recounted - focusing particularly on social change. As well as school days, work and play, transport and entertainment, there are also memories of the late '60s clashes between Mods and Rockers, of the infamous Wall of Death at the Kursaal, and of excursions to the longest pier in the world. Anyone who knows Southend, as a resident or as a visitor, will be amused and entertained, surprised and moved by these stories, which capture the unique spirit of Essex's largest town.
