Vic Barnes

During the 1953 floods

By Janet Penn

We have been fortunate to have a collection of postcards and photos etc from Vic Barnes family. His daughter Bobbie Barnes-Jones has passed them to us.

Vic Barnes had a fishing tackle shop in the High Street in Benfleet and lived on a houseboat in the creek.

This photo shows Vic helping out during the floods.
