Despite being a busy resort for Londoners for many years, walking pictures from Southend are quite thin on the ground, and those that I have found have no markings to tell you where they were taken (and have been identified only because they were posted off and carry a postmark). These two well worn walkies actually do have the name of the resort printed on the front, so are quite unusual. They are also dated 1939. I’m not too sure where they were taken, but it may be the old pier head somewhere, all of which has now gone. I assume both were taken on the same holiday but as Mum has a different dress, must be on different days.  They are probably movie camera strips originally but have now become separated.

There is a walkie from Westcliffe on the site,
