Adverts from 1949

Captivating Canvey

By Janet Penn

The Captivating Canvey was first published in 1927 the adverts here come from a copy dated 1949 that was published on behalf of the Canvey Island Chamber of Trade and therefore contains lots of adverts from Canvey businesses.  

As we have seen in other copies many of the names and addresses will be very familiar to you. If you have memories of these places please comment below we want to hear your stories.

If you worked for any of the businesses please tell us or did you hang out in Knightingale's Café or the Jersey Restaurant, do you remember the proprietors please comment below.
