Thread Name: london folk songs
Subject: RE: london folk songs
I learnt Stanley and Dora from Folk School Camps in the 1960s - it was Jerry Jordan who told me, when I was booked at Valmai's Lewes folk club, that Max Bygraves had sung it when he lived in Stanmore and I found out that Valmai, Anthony Bygraves and I had all attended the same primary school.... this would also have been around the time that the Dominion (where Dora worked as an usherette) was showing Cleopatra followed by the Sound of Music!

I don't think Polly Perkins of Paddington Green has been mentioned as a London song yet?
