I have attached a photo of some workers at one of the local Brickfields.  If anyone could identify the location and any of the workers I would be interested.  My mother was Ruby Mudge who was born at Upchurch in 1914, but lived in High Dewar Road when she married Harry Tottman at the Rainham Congregational Church in 1938.  Her uncle, Elijah Boakes (1869 to 1936) was a foreman at the Eastwood brickfield in Quay Lane, Rainham.  I wonder if that is where the picture was taken.
