Burnham and the Dengie 100

Gallery of old prints - page 1

These are historic prints of Burnham-on-Crouch in Essex. All these antique pictures are from photographic postcards produced around the turn of the 19th/20th century. They are all from the collection of Michael Head, a well known postcard collector from Burnham-on-Crouch. Due to their great age, many of the old prints were badly faded or damaged but these images have all been carefully restored by Matt & Gloss photography, who are well known in the area for their antique photo restoration service.

Things have changed a little since those days. Although the clock tower is still there, the building is no longer a school and sheep don't graze in front of the church any more. Also, shopping was clearly a different experience in bygone years.
