Some more old Thanet pictures, but what did people write on the back of these postcards?

 I popped into my study just now and got out my mobile phone and a pile of postcards as I thought it would interest readers to look at a few more old local pictures, a lot of these postcards haven’t been written on, but then some have.

 So with this next lot I have photographed the backs too.

As I keep saying my bookshop has been very busy recently and I just haven’t had the time to chase up local issues or write anything much, we are closed tomorrow so a bit of a break, here is the link to the books that went out on the shelves today lots of local history.


  1. Whereabouts was the windmill in the second photo Michael?

    It doesn't look like Newington (Peter Mack's) mill or Grange Road?

    Hereson maybe?

  2. I think I've worked it out - not Ramsgate at all but Broadstairs.

  3. Michael I think it's Pierremont Mill, so yes Broadstairs

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.
