Canvey Island in the 20s


I have had this photo for ages. Not sure if I have put it on here before but when I saw the same picture for sale (a poor copy) on ebay it reminded me to look for it. Any ideas where on Canvey this was taken?

  • I’m inclined to agree with you Dave. Can’t think of any other right-hand bend like that on Canvey. Definitely can see the outline of the ‘Downs’ and I think that’s Creek House,very vague on the left of the photo.

  • IF it is Canvey then it would be after 1924 as there are telephone lines.

    The car is registered to West Ham before 1929

  • According to Hulton Archives who have this image on getty it is dated 1923 and it is Canvey.

  • I think the tall man on the right carrying a jacket is my father. If you have any information about this photo I would be very interested. I have a collection of photos he took on Canvey in the 1920s

  • Sorry Veronica we do not have any information about the photo. The archive would love to see your fathers photos. Any chance you could add them to the website? I am sure everyone would love see them. Or you could send them to me direct
