Flood 58th Anniversary
The Norman Chisman Slides
58 years ago tonight (night of January 31st – 1st February 1953) the great flood hit Canvey Island. Here are a selection of photographic slides that local historian Norman Chisman donated to the CCA. I have scanned these just in time for this anniversary. As I get time I will add more descriptions, perhaps you can all help by adding some as comments including any places or people you may recognise. Some images may be back to front – please advise if you spot any!
