I already said that to him Bill he just laughed , The only time he put anything on paper as
far as I know is an article about the Lotus I asked him to write when we used to do a local free
paper , That was good although it didnt tell you about the staff and customers it was more
 about when he took over the Lotus and the Jive Dive,  and the groups and singers that had
appeared at the Lotus over the years ..

Hi Carol

If you let me have your email address I will send the photo to you.   I will definitely buy the book even if it is not on Kindle as I lived and died at the Two Pudings.

Take care.

Hi carol, please pass on my congrats on the book i have just finished it. Was lovely to read and although i wasn't a regular until mid 80's brought back good memories (i was a brandy and babycham girl couldn't drink it now!) especially the photo of the stairs to where used to dance my socks off (couldn't do that now either!) The puds was the place that everyone seemed to meet their partners ,or ex husbands in my case! My mum and dad ran threshers off licence on prince regents lane from early 50's until 1972 although not publicans they still had colourful regulars! All the best to the family x

Hi Jem45
I will pass that on when I speak to him .
 I think the stairs might well be a problem now !
I used to go upstairs in the early 60s and I was upstairs in the Big beat the night of the stag do and although I suppose it was quite frightening at the time afterwards we found it very
funny a girl that was with us was shouting out that she had been shot and was holding her chest .
 A fella who was standing near us smoking a pipe was knocked out and his pipe was in pieces and a pane
of glass smashed behind the DJ ,this all caused quit a bit of panic at the time until it was realised it was some bright sparks stag do and he had nicked some potatoes from the kitchen and decided to throw them .
         it was one of those times when you had to be there to see just how funny it was .
          Carol.

I bet that was funny! I remember one night i had a top on but no bra. The DJ commented on the mike whilst i was dancing "that must be jelly cause jam don't wobble like that"! scarred me for life! Couldn't do that now either, i would get sore knees and black eyes!!! Happy days. X

I had a Saturday/holiday job on a fruit and veg stall on Stratford Broadway, and I used to take the veg orders to the Two Puddings, amongst other places.
Never got to have a drink there though, by the time I was old enough, we'd moved away.
I used to work on Harry Hobsons' stall, virtually outside Stanwood Radio.

  A little trailer for the book which I think is good it has sound
  but only lasts for a couple of minutes.

Sorry for the late reply Carol. Not been on much lately, had a couple of eye operations.
Anyway, the era would be around the mid sixties. I remember watching a bit of the '66 World Cup final in Stanwood Radio's window.
I used to work weekdays as well during my school holidays.

Hello Dave
   I did not work day time until the mid 70s so would not have known you
although I remember Harry Hobsons stall, When I speak to Eddie I will tell
him I have been speaking to the young boy who used to  deliver his fruit and veg.
 Hope you are feeling better .

Eddie is doing a book signing at the Newham Bookshop at 1pm this Saturday, he is also on the Robert Elms Show on Radio BBC London on the 29 October around 12 noon in a feature called 'Listed Londoners'
which he thinks is a 'phone in'..

Thanks Carol.
Getting better all the time.
