Each morning throughout Londonís Docklands, and before
the introduction of containers, thousands of fit, tough men,
young and old alike, would get out of bed, ( many suffering
extreem pain from years of back breaking toil from working
in the holds of cargo ship and River Barges) a quick wash,
and if lucky there happen to be food in the house, a bite to
eat and a mug of tea, don their work clothes, stick the hook
you see "above" into their belt, and off to work in London
Docks, these Dockers hooks were lethal tools, and on
occasion used to settle a score, or when they fought each
other for the chance of a dayís work so they could feed
their families.
