The memories of Fairview were somewhat limited then, the strange little shed that I found out to be a chemical toilet which I had never seen before coming from Chelmsford. I was never keen visiting that little outbuilding.
Many years later when both Fred and Flo had passed away I accompanied my grandmother on the bus to Canvey, I don`t think it was a direct ride and I am sure we changed at Southend (I may be wrong).
The light inside the property was not great as all the blinds as seen in the photograph were pulled down and it seemed quite eerie.
In the roof loft there was lots of old books and annuals which must have been quite old as they did not have any children of their own.
Unfortunately that generation of family did not always appreciate the potential value of antiques / collectables like we do now. Fairview was sold and most probably the ground was developed as the property sat in the middle of the plot of land.
Unfortunately I do not know the number of the property so I do not know its specific location.
