Old Pictures of Pegwell Ramsgate

A few old pictures of Pegwell today they from the 1920s after the Conyngham Café was demolished according to Adventures in Shrimpville, at that time the ground was being used as a bowling green and I believe those must be bowls that you can see in the second picture from the bottom.


  1. I have this fascinating book (about a fascinating place), & I highly recommended it!

  2. Peter, Mark, thanks for those kind words, I now publish three of Martin’s titles all of which have been very well received, I will pass your comments on to him.

    Adventures in Shrimpville was originally published by Martin my reprint is a much expanded edition with many more pictures.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
