Railway Track, Tollesbury, Essex.
Used in "More from Tollesbury Past" by Keith Lovell, which says: "The obsolete track to Tollesbury Pier Station is overgrown. Ships are anchored in the Blackwater during the depression. Stretching back towards the river, Tollesbury Oyster Company men return home from work. In these hard times they received one pound a week with which they were able to buy their winter coal.

The second ship from the left is probably the HIGHLAND ROVER which was in the river July 1930 to October 1932. The engines-aft vessel in the centre of the picture is thought to be BERWINDLEA which was in the river February 1932 to July 1935.
Date: c1933
