The lady to bottom left is definitely Elsie French. Elsie was my Auntie and looked very much like my dad Harold. Elsie worked on the buses for many years I recall. She was raised from the circle at Tilbury and Stephenson Avenue but never knew she was born in Kent always thought born in Tilbury.

to be honest I don't think it is my mum as she was definitely brought up in coopers shaw road in gravesend there were lots of children and what a coincidence she had a brother called John who died a few years ago. And we lived at number 12 Stephenson for many years until 2010 when my mum died of cancer that is very strange.

I think the lad standing to the right of the truck with the glasses is Jack Russel. I think he lived in Stephensons avenue.
