Isle of Thanet Visitors Guide for 1901 + ramble

A featured local book today, one of the ones I do a modern reprint facsimile wosisname, here is the inevitable link to the buy it now and below the first 25 pages of the guide which should expand if you click on them.

The council have just sent me the press release saying that they exchanged contracts on the Pav yesterday, which is due to open next summer.

Lunch, all day breakfast, wosisname at Candy’s aka Topps – oh well £3 inc tea

I tried to sketch the Pav over lunch, but as you see it didn’t quite work out, trouble is that the variegations that would give it shape are for the most part in reality virtually flat – a straight line in reality. So this is one of several preliminary sketches that form part of the process of me working out how to draw it so it looks both three dimensional and fairly normal.

Post a Comment

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.
