Canvey Island: Revisited (Then & Now)

Canvey Island: Revisited (Then & Now) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following on from the first two collections of archive images, this new volume revisits the Canvey Island of yesteryear with the use of 200 fascinating photographs, postcards, and other ephemera. As well as demonstrating the diversity of islanders throughout history, this edition pays particular attention to the devastating North Sea floods of 1953.
