These old photos of 87 Marshall Road Rainham Kent were taken around 1928 and 1932. The huge pile of flints has decreased a bit between the photos. One of the interesting things in the deeds for our house is a covenant that prevents us from selling flints from the house. I wonder if it was a common issue with building at that time and the ground having so many flints in it.

Above, Marshall Road in 1932. You can see a conservatory has been added at this point and the fascia boards have been painted black but the paint on the walls is looking somewhat tired.
The photos below were taken in the late 1980s when the house at 33 Marshall Road was demolished to construct the Charlotte Drive estate
