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.
