More 'Old Canvey' Postcards

Haven Series

Cricksea Cafe, probably in the HIgh Street, reminds me of Greenglades, or maybe the Cosy Cafe. Hope somebody knows the exact location

Dutch Cottage, near Northwick Corner - now the Museum; must be a view from the North side

View of Canvey Village from Long Road, there were two more pairs of cottages laying back behind the fence in the foreground - Lin's father was born in one of these

No dates on any of the cards. They are from the Haven series of postcards by A J Padgett & Son of Leigh-on-sea. There are some more of Padgetts cards for sale at various places on the web
