Old cine film of Canvey Seafront

Taken by the Claxton Family

We have been very lucky to be given a DVD full of old Canvey cine films dated from mid 1930’s. This is just the first of the clips I will be putting on site, keep calling back to see some more.

This clip is of the seafront after 1933 and before 1938. We know the approximate date as the Casino was built 1933 and the Monico , which is missing from this clip, was built in 1938.

The films are very old and not of the best quality.

We would very much like to thank Michael and Lin Swanson for donating the DVD.
