New Dreamland book Dreamland Revived by Nick Evans and some thought about other Dreamland and Margate books.

I have just received stock of Dreamland Revived it sells for £15.99 some of the contents are the same as Nick’s previous Dreamland books, but there is a lot of new content and new photographs that I haven’t seen before.


I worked as an engineer on Dreamland and the other amusements in Margate that were owned by the then owners, Associated Leisure in the early 1970s so this book has special interest for me.


The first edition of Nick’s first Dreamland book Dreamland Remembered commands a surprisingly high price around £60, we have this in stock, this shouldn’t be confused with the second impression or the revised edition which looks very similar and isn’t so expensive. Very  much a case of buy it for £60 and in 5 years time it will probably be worth around £100 put £60 in the building society and in 5 years time….


I do publish reprints of a couple of pamphlets that relate to Dreamland and loads of other Margate stuff which can be bought off our website http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/ or by coming into my bookshop (closed Sundays and Thursdays)


We also have an ever changing stock of out of print Margate books.



Not much point in giving you the prices as they are ever changing too because of how fickle the internet is.

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.
