Valentines Day 1880 Ramsgate Panorama DIY



So my Valentines Day card to my readers here are, below the 6 component parts as produced in Victorian times, the object is to print them out and stick them up together in a line to make a panorama or a very long Valentines card







Recommend you click on them to expand them before printing for best quality.

So dating it, after 1860 as the railway station is there on the right and before the 1890s when the red brick arches were built, but the key here is that it says “The New Pier” and the pier was built 1879 to 1880 so I reckon the date is very close to 1880. 


Alternatively we also produce in booklet form in two different sizes  along with other pictures from the same date, so you can buy it and chop it up, here is the link to buy it online http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id321.htm alternatively come intot he bookshop here in Ramsgate 

For the dedicated followers of the bookshop here are the pictures of the books we put out on the shelves today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/latest-stock-arrivals-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.
