Three hundred years ago Southend was an insignificant hamlet at the south end of Prittlewell parish. During the late eighteenth century it began to gain popularity as a seaside resort. Lady Hamilton stayed here in the nineteenth century, as did Princess Caroline, wife of King George IV. Jane Austen mentions Southend in Emma as does H. G. Wells in War of the Worlds. Today Southend is not only a popular seaside resort. It has its own airport at nearby Rochford which is now served by a recently purpose-built railway station giving access to London. Join the author on this exciting visual tour of Southend, giving the reader a unique insight into how this well-loved town has changed over time. Southend Through Time will be essential reading for anyone who knows and loves the area.
