Picture 1 shows our Houseboat the tallest in the top right hand corner moored behind an unoccupied Thames Barge. Picture 2 middle centre point is near where the Tewkes Creek Dam is, to the right of the lower wall which shows water flowing over is now Dovervelt Road. Picture 3 is Newlands which I think is a little further east from picture 2

The bungalow nearest the sea wall in the centre front of the top photo belonged to my grandparents William (Bill) and Louisa (Louie) Whitehead, they lived at the bottom of Landsburg Road, my late mother, Norma Lewin, saw the water coming over the sea wall from her bedroom, woke her parents who then all went to  Louie's sisters bungalow (in photo, front of picture left) Doris and Roland Day. By the time they got there and raised the alarm the water was then too deep for them to return home and they lost everything.
