Ramsgate holidays between the wars, another councillor resigns and work in the bookshop

Having bought the post war Broadstairs guide the other day and working away here on the computer with several new local publications nearly finished and a pile of local history related emails that would daunt anyone I just diverted into the 1939 guide to Ramsgate to answer one. You can buy the guide at http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id356.htm or by coming into my bookshop.

Anyway clicking on the sample pages link for this guide I found the images had become corrupted so as I pulled some out to do something html on the bookshop website here they are.












Apart from work in the computer there was also physical work in the shop, my work on the books that started a couple of weeks ago by taking the military books off and reviewing the prices has now got the a sort out the order of the section stage, so today I put some labels on the shelf edges. The next stage is more sorting and more labels.





















The main local news today is that another UKIP Thanet Councillor has resigned, see http://www.thanetgazette.co.uk/Newington-Ukip-councillor-Mo-Leys-resigns/story-29278983-detail/story.html strange indeed coming on the heals of the crime commissioner election results where the Thanet voters seemed to be endorsing our UKIP council.  

And back down the rabbit hole in the bookshop lots of books went out on the shelves too, see http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/down-rabbit-hole-in-bookshop.html

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.
