We have recently been given a copy of Scott's Illustrated Guide to Canvey-on-sea 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, with missing pages and in a bad way therefore some of the photos are not as clear as we would like but well worth a look.

Update: I have been fortunate in finding a copy of the guide was deposited at Colchester Library and they have kindly scanned the missing pages.
