Joanne Smith's Post Card Collection
Sent in from Australia
Joanne Smith writes…
Here are some Post Cards, I also have a magazine book Britain’s Great Flood Disaster when the Queen mother and Elizabeth visited Canvey Island, after the floods.
My grandfather (William H Smith) also sent some pictures after the flood 31st Jan 1953, I think the photographer was John Charles from Benfleet.
I also have some other photos of “Thames House” if needed and photos of a factory that was next to it.
I am interested in finding out more about the South Benfleet Creek Houseboat fire [on the Canvey.org Forum See HERE]. Is there any more infomation on that? I applied for a newspaper from England but to a cost of $130 I only received a short story about Vicky Wright. Any news would be appreciated.
I am in Australia, my father has been here since 1952 and is the only surviving member from his family. I am trying to piece together a family history, maybe somebody knows of someone else to contact?
If anyone can help Joanne, please leave a message below, email in, or leave a message on the Canvey.org Forum.
