Bygone Years 010 - Southend 1932 Chalkwell Park

What were you doing in 1932? In Chalkwell Park they seem to be having a bit off a shindig!
Here children of Southend are on parade in their home made costumes – some very elaborate – having fun in Chalkwell Park during the 1930s. Many thanks to Chris Taylor who produced and narrated the Bygone Years DVDs for allowing us to use this material. All of these films and more can be found at the East Anglian Film Archive -
