I've been searching and asking for photos of the town from the mid-late 70s for the past 20 years. In particular, the old aquarium shop that was found on that little road between what was Peaches and the old Key Markets butchers.

I’ve often regaled to my wife and daughter about the magical place my dad, George, used to take me to when I was around 4-6 - the Lagoon Aquarium - and how I wish I had a photo.

Only this weekend i took my wife to the aquarium shop on the London Rd in Southend and we chatted about the Aquarium shop that used to be on Canvey..and so to, tonight, by sheer accident, I come across this photo- albeit it as the place was being torn down. Feeling blessed!
