This photo is dated October 1990.
We now have the story behind the photo from the Echo Archive cuttings.
Castle Point Chairman Ron Sweeting almost treated his wife Kath to some new footwear yesterday. But they both discovered the clogs, among the exhibits at Canvey’s Dutch cottage museum, made the chairman’s first lady feel a little wooden.
Coun and Mrs Sweeting were on an official visit to the museum, a regular draw for the island’s visitors.
