Just look at these cutest little baby faces.

We’ve uncovered these vintage photos from a baby competition held in Southend back in 1932.


The event was part of the Southend Hospital Carnival Week and the baby show was held on the Thursday of the packed week of events, at Chalkwell Park.

Back then baby competitions were hugely popular and contests would attract several hundred entries from across the borough.

The mums look proud but some of the tots look less than impressed with the proceedings judging by their faces.
