Back in 1971 when the main Post Office on Canvey was in the purpose built building in Furtherwick Road there was a Post Office strike. These photos show Canvey Islanders queuing for their pensions and benefits and they look very well behaved and in good spirits. The Salvation Army are on hand making cups of tea.
The buildings far right at the top are long gone to make way for the Knightswick Centre. The buildings middle back are still standing. Can you make out the names of the shops and do you remember them?
Is you mum, dad, Nan etc in the queue? If you recognise anyone please comment below.
