Harvesting in West Mersea with corn stooks standing in the field - in Mersea these were known as traves or traives. Looking across what is known in 2009 as the 'Legion Field', formerly known as Three Acres.
In the background is Barfield Road from what is now Lower
Kingland Road to Melrose Road. The school is on the left - the belfry on the 'Old' school is still in place. The small bungalow with the sunshine on
the roof to the right of the picture, was the home of the Whiting family
for many years. The two pairs of cottages in the right half of the picture have been replaced by modern housing while the two in the centre of the picture remain the same shape but have been modernized.
