  • Regent St., Strand, Bond St., Marble Arch, Piccadilly, Charing Cross, Westbourne Grove… they’re all the London sights I can read on the wagon, plus possibly another Marble Arch on the forward board. Were they looking for a summer home on Canvey? Were there that many trees on Canvey? Could that be a road behind them? Maybe they were here to entertain?

  • Probably bushes Robert. Very similar to the fields behind the Dutch Village which are much as some of Canvey was like.

  • There used to be lots of trees at Gains Corner and there were fields near there.
