Brendan Behan describing the three classes of houses that existed on Russell Street where he grew up. He talks about his neighbours and the people who lived in the houses. Young girls ashamed of their homes would walk miles out of their way so as not to let others know where they lived.

An older woman living on the street was a "pickeroony" who went to the dump and rooted around for any old rubbish, jam jars, porter bottles or anything she could exchange for money.  The woman would then use the money to get drink "jungle juice."
