The top photo has been passed to us by Ray Howard taken in 1974 when the Canvey Island Urban District Council ceased to exist.
I recognise several faces Sidney Alterman, Ray Howard, Colonel Fielder and his wife Barbara, Dot Shaw, Bert Tibbles, Brian Beasley and Donald Allen. Can you see anyone else? Please comment below.
