Jack Rogers was born in 1909 in East London, the son of a West Ham tram driver. In this little book he tells his story, in his own words, of his life, his family and his love of photography. He remembers his aunt getting him out of bed to show him a zeppelin on fire in the night sky. He remembers uncles returning from the Great War, beginning work in the Rag trade and how he bid farewell to his expectant wife on a crowded railway station, as Londoners fled the Second World War. He tells about being in the Home Guard, how he looked after his young family during the blitz in East London and how he rebuilt his house, and life, after the war. This is the story of one working man and his family living over the period of the two great wars of the Twentieth Century.
