This photo of Rainham Co-operative Store was taken in 1975 from the church tower. The store was located opposite St Margaret's Church and demolished in 1997 to make way for the new Medical Centre. The store front clearly shows the date of 1928 on the front facade. To the right of the photo you can just see the old Rainham Sorting Office that is now the McCarthy & Stone retirement home.
