Captivating Canvey 1931

This category contains excerpts from the 1931 edition of B McCave's Captivating Canvey. Fred McCave published these excerpts in the 1980's in his magazine The Bulletin. There are only a few copies of the 1931 edition and they are mainly held by institutions so it was very fortunate for us that Fred had the forethought to re-publish parts of them in his magazine and it is also fortunate that copies of The Bulletin survive today giving us an insight into life on Canvey nearly 80 years ago.
