Scott's Illustrated Guide to Canvey-on-sea

The front cover

We have recently been given a copy of Scott’s Illustrated Guide to Canvey-on-sea, written and illustrated by Ellen E Mann, which was for sale in 1906 for 3d.

The guide is full of stories about the Island and has many photographs we have not seen before.

It is very old and in a bad way therefore some of the photos are not as clear as we would like but well worth a look.

Some of the stories and photos will be published in the next few weeks.

Here are just a few of the pages of adverts.
