"Queenie Watts, singer at the Ironbridge Tavern in East London, gets her own film portrait and so do the Tavern’s patrons and other musicians."

Seems she was quite famous as singer and actress, but this is more like jazz/blues shouting while the band blows shiny things which make parpy noises.

- very evocative footage of docks, ships, dereliction, demolition sites, ordinary people. Plus very high quality footage - pin sharp.
