Canvey Carnival Court

Was it 1990?

Looking through old negatives recently, I found these young ladies, who may well remember their year of glamour.

Canvey Island Carnival Court 1990?

The venue was Benfleet Camera Club and the date 26 March 1990 (or was it 1980?). Perhaps someone will be able to put me right and also add names to the pictures? Alas, I don’t seem to have a separate negative for the third young lady.

  • Hello there, the year for this carnival court was 1990 the girl that is missing from the small photo’s is Amanda Lloyd. I know of her I will speak to her and find out the other girls name for you. The reason i am replying to this is that I was a last junior princess in 1986 and still have memories of the carnival along with photo’s and carninval programmes. I will try to get in contact with her for the other girls names but some where in my loft I have photo, names of the carnival courts back from where I was in it. I hope this will be of some help to you will be intouch.
