This was the SMNCo. 48ft loa. Bawley the "May", built in 1902 to race home under sail with her catches of 15 tons of sprats. During WW2 she sunk at her mooring from leaks caused by shrapnel damage from a bomb which just missed the Pier pavilion; salvaged, she spent the rest of the war in a mud berth close to Johnson & Jago's Yard to the west of Old Leigh. Refurbished by Cooks Yard on the Hythe at Maldon in 1945, she was back fishing for the SMNCo until the sprats shoals vanished from the estuary around 1960. Eventually, she was sold away up the east Coast to a n owner who intended to convert her to a yacht, Nothing further known as of 2015.

This is St John's Church, C.of E., - which was - back then, - the Church for the Lifeboatmen, and for many of the excursion-boat crews as well. It is also where I was christened, back in 1937.

This new road was named "Seaway" and the ground to the left of it became a parking area for the then-new coaches and charabancs,which brought tens of thousands of daytrippers and longer-stay holidaymakers to Southend from 1920 to 1939.

the 75ftloa. TSMV "Julia Freke" of the Southend Motor Navigation Co, built by Haywards of Southchurch, behind the Kursaal. Having just completed the Board Of Trade's Annual Inspection for her Passenger-carrying License renewal, the "Julia Freke" was commandeered by Royal Navy for use in Dunkirk evacuation;and at the end of the War in 1945, she was the only vessel returned to the SMNCo, having survived service at Dunkirk and then after that RN service as a coastal minesweeper.

TSMV New Prince Of Wales, 137grt, of the Southend Motor Navigation Co, built Bosham, 1922. Having just completed the Board Of Trade's Annual Inspection for her Passenger-carrying License renewal, the "NPoW" was commandeered by Royal Navy for use in Dunkirk evacuation; and sunk off La Panne beaches entirely due to incompetence of assigned RN crew of 1 AB, 1 first yr. apprentice-ERA from HMS Sultan, and 1 Sub-lieutenant with only 1 yrs training at RNC Britannia. They were so incompetent, they didn't even realise the engines were petrol-parafin engines and topped-off the fule tanks with diesel, in Sheerness Dockyard before leaving on the initial trip down to Ramsgate. This meant engine-stoppages from contaminated fuel all the way to the arrival off the French coast, where the engines stopped again, and before the untrained young apprentice-ERA could get them started again, the vessel had drifted into the middle of an artillery duel between a Polish Destroyer and a Nazi shore battery, and was sunk in shallow water by a near-miss which burst her planking open. The Treasury were fraudulent in their settlement, offering on 1/10th of the book value of the vessel. and this almost bankrupted the Owners[one of whom was my father] who could not afford to fight a department of Government.

The No.2 jetty, un-occupied in the photo, was the regular berth of the Myall Family's TSMV "Britannia", a poor copy of the SMNCo's TSMV "New Prince Of Wales, [at the No.1 jetty opposite the Hope Hotel, on the right of the picture]. The Myalls volunteered their two MV's for the Dunkirk Evacuation - and since they were late in doing so, the RBN had no more seamen and junior officers to send - so the Myalls got to send their boats with their own experienced crews aboard, and that - plus good luck - is why both vessels survived the Operation, when at least a thrid of the commandeered Little ships were lost due to the incompetence of their assigned but inexperienced Navy personnel. How do I know this stuff? My family owned the Southend Motor Navigation Co.
