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
