Thus Gans, describes the following types of ‘West Enders’ (Gans 1965: 28): the maladjusted, the middle-class mobile, the routine seekers and the action seekers. Hannertz outlines the following categories in ‘Soulside’: mainstreamers, swingers, street-families and streetcorner men’ (Hannertz 1969: 37).

I should also wish to add the stories which one may tell oneself, the inner narratives though which one attempts to make sense of where one lives and one’s location within it. This may be especially important for people who are alone, are newcomers or transients within a particular location but applies to everybody to some degree or another (Archer 2003). Embeddedness occurs through such stories and such stories are partly exchanged with acquaintances and deal with acquaintances and their locations in neighbourhoods.

This is in part a historical comparison with an implied reference to the classic British community studies but also reflects class differences.
