Miniature View Album of Canvey Island

Given to us by Frederick Day

Please excuse fingers. It is too delicate to scan so I had to gently hold it open while I photographed the pictures

This tiny (just 2.5  by 3.5 inches) was given to us by Frederick Day. It was sent to his grandfather, Godfrey Day, as a present. Godfrey had a bakery and shop on the island, but Frederick is not sure where.

Frederick’s Grandparents lived in one of the wooden cottages opposite the King Canute.

We believe the album was available in the 20s. If anyone has seen one before and can help us date it please comment below.

Beautiful, nearly 100 years old.
