Harbour Parade Ramsgate

Also known in past times as Waterside, East End, Goldsmid Place, Harbour Street and Town Quay, something that can cause some confusion when identifying buildings.

Phil About Ramsgate blog has been putting pictures of old Ramsgate onto the web, see some of which either I have never seen before or I have never seen on the internet so that I have time to study them properly.
The picture above is one of them and immediately prompted the question, is this on the site of the Alexandra Hotel building that is there now
Anyway the net result of all of this is that I have spent most of the day looking at old pictures of harbour parade and the buildings there, trying to work out what was where when.

I wouldn’t say that I am much the wiser but this link takes you to some of the pictures that I have of this part of Ramsgate I am pretty sure that I have published most of them on the internet before but I suppose that any of you who have tried working back through this blog to October 2007 and clicking on the links to pictures of Ramsgate will know that it is quite a task.

  1. David Miram's book of Old Ramsgate Pubs has a photograph on page 13 of the pier yard c.1900. In the background is the Alexandra Inn which is clearly the same pub and is shown adjacent to the Castle Hotel, which is identifiable as the Atlantis building in your recent picture.


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.
