Various publishers including R.A.P. and Gordon Smith

Padgett's series of Pitsea area postcards mainly date from around the 1930s onwards. The majority of views, as with the Bell's series, are concentrated along London Road, High Road, Pitsea Broadway, Rectory Road and St. Michael's Church. These examples mainly appear in either the 23xx or 26xx numbering sequence.

Edward Gordon Smith (15/06/1857 - 30/05/1906) released 6 postcards from the Basildon area, 2 of which were taken in Pitsea in the early 1900s. The other 4 were from Vange.
