In this personal history of the largely resettled Southside Road in St. John’s during 6he 1930 and 1940s, Helen Fogwill Porter evokes the characters and atmosphere that made this community distinct within the larger city. With Porter’s unerring eye for detail we meet the people who gave life to the Southside—longshoremen, housewives, sailors, coopers, midwives, and sex workers.
Porter’s story is a reminder of the journey each of us takes in navigating through childhood; a road leading from a state of innocence to the gritty, unpredictable world ahead.
