I came across the section about Prouts whilst browsing the Canvey site. I lived on Canvey, in Craven Avenue, from 1951 until 1966. Dad worked for Prouts when he finally retired from a life at sea. I think he was employed around 1960. Have these couple of photos – one of the staff and another of Dad working on a catamaran. Thought they may be of interest so someone?? Hope so.
