Photos of Rainham in 1970s

I've received a set of photos taken in Rainham in the 1970s which give a fascinating glimpse of how much the centre of the town has changed since then.

The Midland Bank branch shown above was demolished in the 1990s and the Hidsons car sales next door expanded to cover the site.

Almost all the shops pictured no longer exist although a few of them are in different locations under the same name
