Birch Church of England School. An aerial view, late 1950s. The staff room to the north of the main building was added in 1957, together with new toilets. The previous toilets had been behind the main building and used buckets, emptied by the school caretaker. The sewerage plant for the new toilets is to the northwest, just beyond the Air Raid Shelters. The car in front of the staff room is probably the Headmaster's Morris Minor MXO419.
The top of the War Memorial Cross and the church spire just show at the bottom of the picture.

Mersea Museum has a large collection of images, mainly of Mersea Island and the surrounding area. Those shown here are a small sample.
The images are divided into categories - click on a Category to view a selection.
Each year, a selection of the images with an accompanying audiocommentary form an audio-visual display that is run when the Museum is open.
If you can add to the information we have about an image, such as the names of the people, the place or the date, please Email us.
The collection is always increasing thanks to the kindness of may individuals. If you have photographs that are suitable for our collection, we would be pleased to hear from you. We can just take a digital copy of a photograph and return the original to you.
The images above are copyright Mersea Island Museum unless otherwise stated.
