How many of you remember the bungalow in New Road that was for one or two days (I cannot remember) a week opened up as Barclays Bank?

I used to do my banking there when I first moved to Canvey. In fact that might well be my daughters pushchair parked up outside.

Does anyone know when it first opened as a bank? Did you work there? Or do you remember it when someone lived there and who they were?

Please comment below if you have any memories of the place.

This was my grandmother's bungalow in the late 50s. Her name  was Grace Wheeler. Sadly I don't recall how long she lived there before moving to Gravesend. My cousin, Susan O'Dare was born in the bungalow In the photo attached is my Grandad, Bill Wheeler and my Mum and Dad, Nancy and Jimmy Black, who lived in Craven Avenue. The photo was taken at my Aunt, Jill Wheeler's wedding.
