9. Cottages at the east end of the High Street. Two remain; the others were demolished between 1937 and 1940. The Victoria Inn marks the end of the High Street; behind it the marshes begin.

10. This painting, by A1fred Morgan or one of his family, shows the forge in the High Street between 1900 and 1910. The cottages to the 1eft are now shops. The forge and the buildings to the right have been rep1aced by shops. Behind the buildings can be seen the roofs of the houses and the White Hart on the Quay as weil as the mast and sprit of a barge.

11. The High Street toward the west. Note the baker's cart helenging to Woolf, whose bakery was probably in Providence. On the right is Mrs. Cole's Temperanee Restaurant. Later Mrs. Cole took over a large building opposite as a Temperanee Hotel. In the centre is Dr. White's surgery, then the Golden Boot Store, run by John Hawkes, then the forge.

12. The narrow neck of the High Street c. 1905 looking east, just before it opens out into what was almost certainly a mediaeval market place. On the right is the Star, a coaching inn adapting to the motor trade. On the left is a butcher's shop demolished in 1984 to make way for Barclay's Bank. It was a butcher's for more than a hundred years. Beyond it is the Temperanee Hotel with the Cycling Association badge. Building and badge are still there.

13. See also No. 12. An ear1ier picture of the butcher's shop, with Mr. l.I. Kendall the proprietor outside.

14. The Working Men's Institute on the right was originally Cupola House, built by the Hawkins family who dealt in grain and coal. On the left, just outside this picture, is the Quay, and there was an iron pier where Hawkins' and Smith's colliers used to co me in. This was directly opposite Cupola House. The present-day War Memorial now occupies the fenced area on the left. The timber building beyond the lamp-post was Bull's earlier harness shop, today's Cabin Dairy.

15. The Post Office and Harness-Maker's in the High Street, 1892. From left to right: Mr. G.F. Bacon, a plumber; Frank Bull; Emily Bull; Mr. R.T. Bull; Howard Bull; two unknown boys; Elisha Clarke and Mr. 1. Harvey. The Bull family, the Bacons, the Clarkes and the Harveys still live in or near the town.

16. King and Hines' hardware shop on the 1eft still exists. On the right, the gardens have given way to building. On the extreme right is the fence of the Baptist Chapel.

17. The Baptist Chapel was built in 1904, but its records go back much further. The accounts date from 1695 and the minutes from 1701, proving it to be one of the earliest Baptist congregations in Essex. West House, the square-fronted building, housed Barclay's Bank at one time.

18. The Princes Cinema, built in 1930, was the second cinema in Burnham. The first, Burnham E1ectric Kinema, built by Albert Newman, was on the site of the present Electricity Showroom.
