What is Canvey.org ?

Canvey.org is wholly owned, run and funded by Dave Bullock. I make NO money in anyway from the site or its contents, in fact it costs me money and a large amount of my time! I have no problem with this because the aim of the site is to:-

Be an on-line archive of as many pictures of (old) Canvey I can find through old post cards, photographs, newspaper clippings etc.
Capture Canvey as she is today and photograph what remains of her history before it is pulled down.
Share any information about Canvey's history and its people.

So what is CanveyIsland.org then?

On 12th April 2008 I helped launch a new website CanveyIsland.org with encouragement from the Essex Record Office & Essex Library Service. Besides still owning the domain, I no longer have anything to do with this organisation..
