The life of Clara James
The Girls Rest Home at Lakeside
I am the great niece of Miss Clara James who contributed a lot to Canvey Island. In 1909 she opened a rest home for overworked Eastend girls at lakeside. Miss James was also a member of Canvey council, a J P and a school manager, and a founder member of the womens institute and was also involved in the nursing association.
I would like to know if anybody has any information or photos of her as I am trying to compile her life story with that of her siblings who equally achieved alot in life. I would be grateful of any information, many thanks,
Jill I have found this rather poor picture of Clara James. Janet
