Audrey Peters outside Baptist Mission Hall

Photograph provided by John Peters, Grandson of William Peters who ran Peters Home Stores

28 September 2016

Peters Home Stores was situated at 125 Shoebury Road, Great Wakering, on the east side, close to Seaview Drive. John Peters’ aunt, Audrey Peters (now Audrey Peters MBE, aged 82) is pictured outside the Baptist Mission Hall which is next door to Peters Home Stores. Audrey stands with a group of children.

David and Dawn Bailey with help from David Lee, Wendy (Driscoll) Bailey and Heather (Farr) have estimated the photo at around 1958. They have also identified the names of the children from left to right as:

Eric Berry, Stuart Berry, Robert Sterry, Eunice Gooding, Maureen Gooding, David Berry and Colin Broomfield.

An interesting feature of the photo is the Peters Stores delivery vehicle, pictured to the right.
