The seaside resort and well-known fishing port of Ramsgate has seen many changes over the last century. In this book the town's busy maritime centre, seafront and stunning architecture have been captured in a myriad of images depicting scenes of yesteryear along with contrasting images of contemporary views from over 100 years later. Archive postcards are compared with the same scene photographed by the author. Local landmarks such as Ramsgate Harbour and St Augustine's Abbey are included alongside seafront views and snapshots of everyday life, combining scenes reminiscing Ramsgate's heritage whilst celebrating the improvements that have taken place over time. As well as delighting the many tourists who have visited the town over the years, Ramsgate Then & Now will provide present occupants with an insight of how the town used to be, in addition to awakening nostalgic memories for those who used to live here.
Many thanks to the Gazette for telling me that they were going to review it so I could order extra copies in time.
