How do you think Southend has changed over the year? What shops, or buildings used to be here that are no longer? Research how Southend has developed over time.
Where to start
Look online at images of Southend from 30 years ago and see if you recognise the shops.
Think about further back in time – what did Southend look like 100 years ago?
How about creating a scrapbook to show how the town has developed? Or a short film?
