More from Essex... and Aden

Some more photographs from the 1920s and 30s photograph album which may have belonged to a family who lived near Clacton-on-Sea. As i mentioned last time i suspected there was a farming connection with the album's once owners due to the number of photographs of farm animals. Such as this one.

This one is entitled "Our hens 1921".
Now for something different. Later in the album are three photographs which have been taken in the Middle East, luckily these photographs have inscriptions on the back which have been reproduced below.
"New roads at Aden, March 1932. Work office on right at back. ME just behind camel in white". Is that M.E. or "me"?
"Works of buildings coolies making new roads at Aden, March 1932"
