"In this personal history of the largely resettled Southside Road region of St. Joh n's, 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 even a few prostitutes. Porter 's story of growing up on the Southside is a reminder of the journey each of us takes in navigating through childhood -- a road leading froma state ofinnocence to the gritty, unpredictable world ahead." - from the rear cover .
