Book Description Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1963. Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Second Impression. This fine unmarked copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is in fine condition. International postal rates are calculated on a book weighing 1 Kilo, in cases where the book weighs less then postage will be reduced accordingly. Where the book weighs more than 1 Kilo increased charges will be quoted. This copy has been signed, dated and dedicated with a short prayer. Laid in is a flyer from the Wellclose Square Fund which was established by the author. ‘Father Joe’, as he was known to his East End parishioners. He made his name and reputation as a High Church Anglican priest towards the end of his working life as a clergyman when he, a Poplar lad from a very poor home, came ‘home’ to be the parish priest of the Church of St Paul Dock Street in Shadwell in 1952. Stepney and Shadwell had had a dire reputation for slum housing, crime, vice and prostitution for many years and the destruction of the War years had not helped conditions for the local population. Father Joe saw it as his work to rescue girls and young women from the dangers and degradation of sexual exploitation by providing them with a safe haven through the church. Helped by a dedicated team of parish workers he helped many to escape the clutches of pimps and brothel keepers, lodging them in a house attached to the church and arranging for pregnant ones to go to the country to have their babies. Father Joe believed strongly that prostitution was closely linked to bad housing and campaigned tirelessly for housing in Shadwell, Stepney and Poplar to be improved: ‘Bulldozers are the only way to clear Stepney of its shocking vice’. He was lucky to have a Daily Mail photographer as his verger and photos of him striding around his less-than-lovely parish in cassock and biretta and on his knees watching the slums of Graces Alley being demolished made his campaigning known to Bishops and royalty. By the time he retired in 1962, this ‘frail-looking’ priest with ‘a booming voice’ had transformed whole streets of his parish in his relentless campaign to clear the area of slum housing and prostitution and he was awarded the MBE in 1975.
