Old photo from Ramsgate Harbour crosswall and Manston DCO drop in

Interesting Ramsgate Harbour photo this one, it dates from before 1890 although I don’t know exactly when
 This detail from the photo above shows the harbour trustee’s committee house this copper domed building with a balcony overlooking the harbour was demolished in 1890.

This detail from the same photo shows the swing bridge mechanism for beige over the now filled in easterly of the lock gates.

As part of the Manston DCO consultation there will be a drop in information session in Ramsgate tomorrow Saturday 24 June at The Comfort Inn, Ramsgate, from10am to 2pm. This event is open to any member of the public that would like to attend.

If you are interested in Manston Airport and the possibly of its reopening, I would strongly recommend going to the session if you can.  

For the dedicated bibliophiles here is the link the books that went out in the bookshop in Ramsgate today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/utopias-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.
