Enter Mr Winder - Post 4
"When I was a kid, says Ir, "there was an old barge sunk in the basin at Shadwell in East London, I thot it was about twenty foot when I fished there - someone said an eel came over the steps - we could see the front part of it in the murky water, our floats hoping for fish. But now I think that perhaps it was more like forty foot of it, that went right out. And the other night, no last night, sharks and alligators in fresh water. That horse, man, it was frightened when it went in knowing it was live bait, I could see it on the expression on its face.
