It has been pointed out by a few people that you can see faces in the picture if the Italianate greenhouse at the top of my previous post (click on it to enlarge) the most sceptical person here said I can’t see anyone apart from John Lennon on the right of the doorway.
This all lead me to remember that I had a folder of pictures of Ramsgate some of which are a little on the ghostly side due to having been copied from the original collection using a camera, click on the link for them http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop3/id10.htm
Some points of interest are:
Dancing at the eastcliff bandstand, the dance floor doesn’t look like the one we have now, so perhaps we could get it replaced with something we can afford.
The original rustic bridge over the Albion Gardens waterfall.
The flowerdew grave.
Rather primitive freight handling arrangements at the harbour.
Moses shipyard where the port is now.
The rather drastic marine drive proposal.
A concert party on the pav’s sundeck.
The building of the military parade brick arches.
The rather ghostly image of the building that used to house the camera obscura.
I think most of them are pretty obvious but I will be happy to answer any comments about anything you can’t identify.
A few pictures from the last few days, including getting the Christmas tree photographed for the children and some of the snow, click on the link for them http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop3/id11.htm
I figure that anyone getting this far through my ramble deserves a small Christmas present one of the books I publish is "Keble's Penny Guide to Margate and the Isle of Thanet 1885" I have put sample pages up and you can click on this link if you want to buy the printed version http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id323.htm alternatively you can click on this link to read the whole guide now http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/blogpicts129/id21.htm
I will ramble on.
