Folk Olympics: Motors And Muddy Marshes In Walthamstow

A fortnightly celebration of the folk history of the Olympic boroughs, in story and song.

This week, Songwriter Ruairidh Anderson tells another Waltham Forest tale. That of Frederick Bremer, the original boy racer.

London is one one of the richest cities in the world and with that wealth comes the power of the status symbol; the house we own, the clothes we wear and of course the car we drive. But for some a motor is more than an interest but an obsession.

Lyrics can be found here.
