Quote of the day No 103

Thursday 5 May 2016

The Cut wasn’t so peaceful as it used to be. It was nearly all hinjins now, and some worked all night, chuggin past, rockin yer boat. There was still a few big cart’orses, stallion-things, drawrin the barges down London way, but on the South h’Oxford there was only the last two Number Ones, the Ownses [Hones] and Joe Skinner, still tradin with hanimals. That was the year, just after the war, that Rose Own married Jack Skinner, nephew to Joe wot worked the ‘Friendship’. The Skinners go back a long way in boatin families. Jack Skinner always looked smart, even when he was in his workin gear. Rose were first swept orf her feet by the jaunty angle of his trilby. Jack were one of the first of the young boatmen to take to the trilby, and to the Vaseline hair cream, until it began to melt with passion on his first date in the pictures with Rose and ran down the inside of his collar.
