This cluster of traditional woodsided Essex cottages astride the sea wall was named Prospect Place. They were demolished after compulsory purchase in 1953, to allow the raising of the sea-wall flood defense after the January Floods.

Judging both from the location of the mooring, and the list caused by grounding with a very deep draft of 7ft, this is the SMNCo.'s 48ft, 18Ton Bawley "Valerie", Regd#LO180.

Traditional "Southend Sailing Lifeboat" - a type of excursion boat that had worked off the foreshore since the 1880's - shown in the first "picture postcards of the holiday beaches. For a view of such a PC, go to the < simplonpc > website and scroll to "Southend Excursion boats". I am researching to try and discover the name of what looks like the very last survivor of maybe 20 such boats, which had names like Monarch, Dreadnought, Grace Darling, and Champion.

Under maximum zoom, one can make out 16 of the 19 pleasure boats from Southend that were commandeered for the Dunkirk Evacuation. Missing are the Southend Motor Navigation Co's 75ft TSMV Julia Freak, and the 50ft varnished-hull ML King George, plus Charles and Arthur Myall's 75ft TSMV the 'little' "Britannia I". Their 3 Pitches closest to the Pier are empty. I'm guessing that when this picture was taken, they were operating from the end of the Pier. Interesting to see that by this date, the Burdett Road Jetty, visible in the air photos from 1933, has already been dismantled, the New Royal Sovereign having been sold to a Bridlington owner at the end of the 1935 Season.
