Fred uses over 70 postcards of Canvey and Benfleet in this book. Some from the early 1900's. There is a short introduction covering the history of Canvey Island from the Romans through Hester's time, the opening of the bridge and the floods of 1953. Great little book to get you started on Canvey's history.

Available from Canvey Library

I have this excellent book - the pictures of the Post Cards aren't very good quality but I can highly recommend it
