Hi Sally,
The two jobs are not incompatible, as a carman he probably delivered coal.driving the horse drawn wagons with the hessian bags of coal to be delivered to shops and homes.
Even as late as the fifties I remember coal being delivered on a horse drawn cart in King's Cross.
Beer was not a labourer but a skilled horse driver,wheras Joe when not in the fish market was a general labourer. As Beer lived quite close by in Spitalfields in the early 80s the odd day coal heaving may have come Joe's way but I dont think it is anymore significant than any other labouring job he had The porter's license did not guarantee a job in the fish market.
The impression I do get is that Joe and his siblings were very close.
Cheers Miss Marple

I recall seeing a property map of Dorset Street... wasn't there an 'M. Barnet' who owned buildings there? Anything on him/any relation to Joe?

Joe had no relatives beginning with M.[ wrong spelling] There were many Barnets and Barnetts in the East End. Joe's family were Catholic but Barnet and Barnett was also a Jewish name, there were several Jewish families of that name in the East End.Miss Marple
