Personalities of Canvey Carnival

Daily Sketch Artist visits Canvey

These great caricatures of the personalities in the Canvey Island Carnival were done by a Daily Sketch artist. I do not know his name (although on Mr Dellaway’s picture below there seems to be part of a signature ‘Gav???’) and we do not seem to have a date either but would think according to other clippings it would be about 1937 (Mr Dellaway died in 1937) but aren’t they great! Some very familiar names are here.

I wonder if the current Carnival committee will ever be immortalized in such a way. Also notice there are only two women where today there are just two men. Changing times!
