As the depression tightened in the early 1930s a prize of groceries was a God-send for many poor families. A carrier bag filled with sugar, butter, tea and a fresh chicken could make all the difference. It was a dream which Joe Barak made a reality for hundreds of people for over three decades. Better known as Chicken Joe, this is his story. His stall, one of the dozens at major fairs, became a legend in itself. No wonder the slogan emblazoned on the front read: "The Man You All Know!"

Condition: Very good. Slight shelf wear to front of book. Click on image for close-up of book.
