AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Swampy was born a layabout and takes great pride in it, on the other hand Brummy drifted into loaferdom and is consumed by the memories of long years wasted in honest work. After years of relying on each other they go their separate ways but a strange quirk of fate brings the two together again.'
