Wendy Knight's photos, part 1.

A collection of Canvey photos from the (80's and 90's)

By Janet Walden

Wendy has lived on Canvey some 40 years where she brought up her two sons. The 2 folders of Canvey photos that she compiled are dedicated to those sons - David and Andrew. Wendy is now in poor health. Her nephew gave the 2 folders of photos to the Canvey Archive so that they would be preserved for others to look at. Most of the photos are from the 1980s, 90s and early 2000s. Only a couple of them had dates written on them.
