Is this building still there? Sally Mc Andrew.
No sorry all those lovely old buildings on the left hand side of East Street were pulled down in 1930, i think they were of the 18th century but there is a fish shop there now of the 19th century but it has closed .
Is that Edwin as in Edwin Joseph Green? (1894-1965). He married my grandma's aunt - Elsie Jane Kemble (1895-1928). They had three children, and their only son, Jack E Green (I don't know his middle name but presumably it's Edwin), was born in 1921 and was killed during WW2. He's one of the few names on the WW2 side of the Wivenhoe war memorial and he's buried in the New Cemetery with an RAF stone. If that is Edwin, it's great to see a photo of him! (If you like, I can send you the photo of Elsie on the beach with her three children, with my grandma and her brothers, some time in the mid-late 1920s) Helen Barrell.
Yes that is Edwin Joseph Green, i think he re married Lilly Payne, one of his Son's is Barry Green who is still alive and well.
