South End expanded in the 18th century with the building of a new town along the cliffs. With the arrival of the railway, almost a century later, the town was subject to further expansion. Day-trippers from inner city areas such as London flocked to the seaside and Southend became a popular holiday town. In the late 1960s one of the biggest changes occurred in Southend's recent history, the Hammerson Development (Victoria Shopping Centre later the Plaza) was constructed, the modernisation programme from then can still be seen today To date Southend has been a subject of many books documenting its history our photos/pictures have appeared in Carol Edwards and Ken Crowe’s publications as well as the local press Southend Timeline, old photos are from a private collection of amateur and commercial photographs taken around the town of Southend-on-Sea
