Comments about this page

I was born at my house in Little Gypps Road and lived there 1962 to when I got married in 1987.

A distant memory as more in my youth but the face is very familiar and sure we saw "Herbert" going past most days. Seemed to recall he lived off Cedar Road, but if someone can put me right.

It is a great photo and while not a Canvey "legend", still someone most people recognised even though they may not have talked to him.

I remember him well. Not only did he come to my wedding when I got married to my first husband we rented a room with him and his wife. He was a lovely man.
