Would you recognise Ramsgate when you got there and a Friday ramble.

This recognising caper is something that isn’t as easy as you would expect
This is looking up Ramsgate High Street in 1917 from the middle of the town centre where Harbour, Queen King and High Streets meet.




 Knowing what’s supposed to be there isn’t much help either, we publish a street directory for 1915 http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id329.htm you could of course come into my bookshop and try to work it all out, however I have just taken one of the shelf and taken photos of the High Street pages.


even much later this is York Street in 1994, it isn't easy.


 the seafront is easier
 even when the picture was taken over 100 years ago
 and of course it helps when it says what it is on the front

 This is one of the boating lake on Ramsgate's Westcliff if you wondered

 I do wonder how many get away because they don't say Ramsgate on them.

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.
