The lovely picture was brought into Benfleet Library by Rose Rawlings showing a day out for Benfleet children. We think the seaside was Clacton and the picture is from the late 1940’s early 1950’s.
Her husband John Rogers has added the following information:
- The Pigrome family lived in Homefields Road.
- The Rawlings family lived in a shop on the junction of Croft Road and High Road.
- The Butler family lived in Southwold Crescent. Sadly Tony Butler is no longer with us.
- The Carter family lived in Hatley Gardens.
