Tales from the Two Puddings





Tales from the Two Puddings is a book by Eddie Johnson, full of anecdotes from his time as landlord of the Stratford pub. His tenure lasted nearly 40 years and he gives a fascinating insight into what a side of London was like. The pub was well known in its time for live music, possibly the countries first disco upstairs, and an always lively mix of East End characters, if you know what I mean!  Eddie gave a talk with Robert Elms at the Bishopsgate Institute and signed books afterwards. The photographs were all printed by Atom and show some of the, always very smartly turned out, regulars and staff of the Puddings. The book is a great read often very funny and always interesting, and the photographs are a wonderful glimpse of a different age and a very different East End.
