Ramsgate Carnival program for 1968, some photos of the 1968 carnival

Here in the bookshop we are busy processing some largish collections of books at the moment, several contain local books and ephemera, which comes my way and today I managed to marry up the 1968 carnival program with photos (which I have put online before) of the 1968 Ramsgate Carnival.






















I am still no closer to discovering the origin of Ramsgate Carnival, see my post the other day http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/when-did-ramsgate-carnival-begin-odd.html                                                                                                                                                                                                                    


On my desk, plenty of local stuff that is difficult to price, not so much about making money as keeping the balance between supply and demand, never easy.

Yesterday it was children’s and railway books, see http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/mr-bump-in-bookshop.html today more children’s and railway books http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/a-series-of-unfortunate-events-in.html I hope by the end of tomorrow things will start to go to local books.

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.
