Subject: RE: Origins: Poverty Knock
Thanks Rob

Pete Coe asked me about this last Saturday, so it is still of interest ~ Pete Bellamy asked about this too ( along time ago)

Note Mick Haywood says it is Tommy Daniel and Poverty Knocks (with the "s")

Interesting about the clickety clack ~ like a railway noise

LIsten also to the fine song Young Simon John sung by Ruth Price, if you come across 'em probably written by Tom Daniel

I am advised that mill lasses were known as "Poverty Knockers around Huddersfield
