THE UNDIMINISHED LINK Forty Years and Beyond

Product no.: HP084

Victor Waldron

This is an account of a timid village boy, Victor Waldron, who decided to take the giant step of moving to London from his home in Plaisance, British Guiana.

Arriving in 1959, the sudden culture shock brought many complications: Long winter months and the wearing of coats and warm clothing, the difficulty of obtaining accommodation, and the obstacle of “No Coloureds, No Irish, No Dogs”. It was a time of working with people who resented the arrival of immigrants, and having to contend with their bigotry.

This book reflects upon the experiences and intrigues of those times and beyond. It tells of the struggle for survival and the desire to succeed; of shattered dreams and aspirations that were never accomplished; and the problems of raising three children in an often hostile environment. Most of all, it tells of the changing times and pace of London through the eyes of a man who came, and saw, and settled.
