Photo of Locomotive No. 73088, one of 12 BR Standard 4-6-0 engines built in the 1950s which from 1955 to 1959 pulled express trains serving the Kent Coast at Rainham station in front of Wakeley's Oast which was converted to a Community centre in the 1970s

I wonder how many local residents recognise or had one of these Rainham & District Co-operative Society Ltd Share Books?

This photo is of Prestige Launderette Rainham at 35 Station Road taken in about 1972. Interestingly the shop is now a launderette again having been a pet shop amongst other uses in the last 40 years.
