Regent St., Strand, Bond St., Marble Arch, Piccadilly, Charing Cross, Westbourne Grove… they're all the London sights I can read on the wagon, plus possibly another Marble Arch on the forward board. Were they looking for a summer home on Canvey? Were there that many trees on Canvey? Could that be a road behind them? Maybe they were here to entertain?

Probably bushes Robert. Very similar to the fields behind the Dutch Village which are much as some of Canvey was like.

There used to be lots of trees at Gains Corner and there were fields near there.
