Two photos from Canvey’s VE celebrations in 1945 and others from the 50th anniversary in 1995.
If you take photos at your street’s 75th anniversary VE party during these strange times please upload them so we are recording the event for future.
A lot of people have sent in photos of this years street parties. They can be seen in our slideshow.
Not Guy Fawkes at all, this photo was taken in 1945, at the end of the war. The “guy” is actually an effigy of Hitler, and was burnt later.(No wonder they are wearing summer clothes). Standing at the back is David Dedman. Back row from left: Roberta (Bobbie) Jennings, cousin Jean Jarvis, Winnie Dedman, Joyce Dedman. Front row from left: Colin Jarvis, Alan Jennings, Val Hazleton, Eric Jennings, David Jarvis.
