Can anyone help place and date this picture that was sent to me.
All I know is it has Canvey Island written on the back in pencil.
By the clothes I would say it was taken in the Edwardian period. Who are these boys and girls and what were they doing camping on Canvey. Was it a school?
We now know this was taken in 1912 as the comment below confirms. We now have a picture of the whole campsite taken in 1911.
We have confirmation this campsite is behind the Vicarage in the village.
This picture was taken looking South away from the Vicarage with the buildings in the distance probably being Brickhouse Farm. The vicarage would be out of shot to the right.
