Another old Canvey building ‘The Granary’ in the High Street. Don’t know how long it has been there but I understand it might not be there much longer, or has it gone already?
In these photos it was run/owned by Chas. Golbourn and Co. We do not know much about Charles Henry Golbourn. He lived with his wife Alice (nee Nuttall)at the Granary from at least 1925/6. Charles was from Walthamstow born in 1878 and married his wife in 1912. Alice, born 1888, was one of Canvey’s Nuttall family. The couple are recorded as living at Canvey Lodge in the Electoral Roll in 1918, and it is at the Canvey Lodge that Charles is recorded as running a Greengrocers in the 1922 Kelly’s Directory before moving onto the Granary by 1925. They were still there, according to Kelly’s directory in 1933. Charle’s wife Alice died aged 51 in 1939. They were living in Pitsea at that time. Charles died in 1960.
Can anyone tell us about the Granary? Please comment below.
