I don’t know who the young ladies (in the photo below) are but this is looking down Ullswater Road before it became overgrown and completely blocked. The area was called The Plotlands. A family by the name of Carter lived in the house to the right, our cottage being out of view to the left. The double story house was home to the Johnsons with a daughter named Elizebeth who was my age.
Just for the hell of it, here’s me at the Chalkwell start to a Southend Carnival, and my latest venture onto a horse on the black volcanic beaches of Bali.
