Beyond England

Nothing regarding his vocation, but Lamming acknowledges that Johnson was still a holder of Manchester City's seasonal and aggregate League goal total records. But, apparently, After the war Johnson ran a public house in Gorton, and lived in the area for the remainder of his life - An English Football Internationalists' Who's Who. Douglas Lamming (1990).
