Recently, friends won a bid in a local auction of many old Post Cards and Photographs. Ken & Angela Smith have kindly donated this untitled photograph that I have identified as the Stepping Stones that were across Benfleet Creek before the Colvin Bridge was built in 1931. Markings on the back indicate “B/W – 32 1307” …….. Possibly 13th July 1932? This photo clears up the mystery as to how many round stepping stones were in place – six buckets of concrete! They were eventually moved to the old Canvey Council offices in Long Road.
