Harry Russell

Henry Gerald Russell, known as Harry, moved to Canvey as a young boy with his widowed mother and two younger sisters soon after WWI. His father Henry had been killed in action in France in 1916.

This section will be showing many of his paintings, sketches and writings about Canvey. We owe our thanks to his son, David who has provided the Archive with a CD containing so much of his works.
