  • Great photos. I remember Stanley (known as Gus). He was friends with my brother in law, John. I also remember Cyril. The large group photo looks like it was taken in North Avenue and it looks like Ricky Sanders (with very blond hair)in the middle and I think I recognise a few more.

  • The Chairman of the Council was Sid Alterman. The originator of Alterman’s Arcade, the former owner of what is now known as Knightswick Centre. He was thye original person who proposed that Canvey should declare independence from Castle Point Council. Not successful of course, but in hindsight perhaps a great foresight of what was needed.
