Following the National Council on Archives' gathering at UCL last week, the six towns in this part of Essex are adding more material to their individual archive websites. See the Billericay contingent at www.billericayhistory.org.uk. Below is a line-up of some of our local interviewers pictured at the Essex Record Office in April.
We have below, too, some film footage taken in Billericay in the summer of 1962 showing citizens going about their business, shopping, having fun in Lake Meadows, taking part in the Carnival and many clips of a life that was very much more leisurely.
A huge thank you to Ian Rough who supplied this film footage and so much more. Ian became a professional photographer and top advertising executive in later years. He now lives in France, but keeps an eye on us from time to time.
