  • Interesting to see the Canvey Supply clock tower. In the 1930’s living in Castle Road Hadleigh we use to read the time from the clock with a telescope while watching the shipping in the Thames.

  • Day trippers waiting in line for the bus off of Canvey!! If the tide was out they were lucky but if it was in, chances are they had a long wait if the bridge was opened or the level crossing gates were closed for the trains to pass.

  • The Furtherwick road queue could have been taken when the buses went on strike one weekend, leaving the holiday makers high and dry. some of the ‘boys’ with cars ran a taxi service to and from Benfleet Station, ferrying holiday makers, much to the annoyance of the Taxi drivers who had more work than they could cope with.
