High-quality greeting card of Canvey Island, a seaside town in Essex, depicting a view of the Labworth Restaurant & Café on Western Esplanade. A Grade II listed building, the Labworth Café is one of the finest examples of modernist architecture, designed by Ove Arup - who would go on to be design engineer for the iconic Sydney Opera House. Today, the Labworth Café is a popular local restaurant, offering diners a panoramic view over the Thames Estuary.

Canvey Island itself is a large coastal town in the Castle Point district of Essex. Canvey Island flourished through the 20th century, becoming Britain's fastest growing seaside resort in the interwar years, and later becoming a major hub for the petrochemical industry. The island, of about seven square miles, is home to around 45,000 people, and is protected by more than 14 miles of sea walls.
