Charley - The Rocks Push & the other inner-city Pushes were street gangs & behaved like other gangs. I remember reading somewhere that their pointy toed shoes were one of their weapons.

Here' the whole series - The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke

& here's the DVD of 1919 version of Sentimental Bloke, & it includes a few clips so you can see why it's a classic.
