The attached photo is 6 Station Road about 1920/25. You may be able to read the name over the shop which was JACOBS, it is tucked behind the produce on display. My Dad, Percy Gladstone Jacobs, was born at that address and he can be seen in the photo. It is amazing to see how much produce was on display.

I am researching the family tree and this photo I found in with some old papers. Please feel free to dispaly this photo and also if anyone has any comment I would be pleased to hear.

Brian JacobsJacobs Shop Station Road Rainham 1925

This is the same shop taken in 2013 now occupied by Medway Audio. You can see the detail above the shop canopy has gone and the wall to the left of the shop has been removed.

Hi Brian

Edward Jacobs born 1765. Did he have a son: Benjamin Jacobs, born 8th May 1808 in Middlesex - died July 1842 in East London? If so let me know, I can add a little.

Hi Brian,
You mentioned Edward Jacobs born in 1765. You think in Rainham. Didhe have a son called Benjamin born 8 May 1808 in Middlesex died July 1842 East London? If so let me know, I can add a little.
