From the rear side cover: From taking the waters to playing the slot machines, the seafront at Southend-on­-Sea has seen many changes. People from near and far came to serve the needs of the visitor. From Italy, the Zanchi's with their restaurants, the Kontil and Black families, from Romania, with shops selling fancy goods. Abraham Kirschner, Austrian, a shell fish bar and Gulielmo Martinali, Swiss, confectioner. Where there is food there must be drink and Marine Parade numbered several Public Houses. The 1800s had the extended Trigg family as publicans, 1960s saw Harry Threadgold the footballer as the Licensed Victualler of the know demolished Ship. The Kursaal attracted the Lecorgne and Grecort families from France, with their rides and stalls. Nearer to home came William Knatchbull and the Newbery-Smiths with their amusement arcades. Baileys fish and chip shop, and Photographer George Pryor, snapping for prosperity the changing face of the tripper. Their stories have created the seaside we experience today....
