A few Ramsgate photos

The Albion hotel was demolished to make way for Madeira walk and National Westminster Bank that was built in the 1890s, the pictures here should expand with a bit of enthusiastic clicking 
 Harbour Parade in the 1800s
The domed building, harbour commissioners rooms was demolished in 1890
 These photos taken this evening, the air is fairly clear today
 making it easier to see in the distance,
 although not so easy in the direction of the sun
the cliffs in the distance are France, I think, also note the ship pumping out a cloud of exhaust.

We have been moving book sections around in the bookshop today, this isn’t so much a sort of M&S method of confusing customers as a reflection of changes in popularity of different subjects because of the internet.

In this case there has been an increase in music book sales, musicians biographies and music scores, both classical and wosisname while books about the movies and film star biographies are seeing a decline in sales.

But what does it all mean? Anyway here is the link to the books that went out on the shelves http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/pigs-and-vampires-in-bookshop.html

Post a Comment

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.
