What where Thanet photos for the weekend and The Crown in York Street Ramsgate ready to reopen

Today’s local photos to puzzle over, some are harder than others and I will identify any that readers can’t after the weekend.








As you see from the photo The Crown, sometime Inn, Hotel and even Jackson’s Wharf  is ready for the off.



As you see from the other photo of York Street in 1994 things there got into a bit of a state, I can’t find any historic photos of The Crown Hotel or Inn, the book “Old Ramsgate Pubs” which we do have in the shop should you want to browse it says it dates from around 1717 and once had a reputation for being rowdy,


Thanet Pubs, vide http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/thanet_pubs.htm has a sketch and says. One of the town’s oldest pubs, in one of the town’s oldest streets. York Street was built in around 1700 when it was called New End. This Whitbread house appears in the first rate book dated 1717. It was owned by Cobb as early as 1818. in that year the Ramsgate magistrates urged Francis Cobb to control the outrageous conduct of his tenant at the “Old Crown”
