Canvey - Do you know where?

Sent in by Jill Burkett

I think Joan is correct. We cannot get in the same position to take a photo and the building has changed quite a bit over the years but I think it is the same place. Abbeyfields Long Road.

This and other photos currently being uploaded to the site were taken by her father, Douglas Alfred Laver, a keen photographer in the 50s when Jill says she spent all her summer school holiday’s in a converted gypsy caravan near Lakeside.

Not sure where this was taken any ideas? I have enlarged the building in the picture at the bottom.

  • Is this the building on the corner of Kit Katts Road now a rest home. It used to be a doctors surgery. The unmade road in the foreground could be Thelma avenue

  • You are talking about Abbeyfield. Certainly a possibility.
