1929 Ramsgate dating

A bit of a strange one this which relates to one of the books I publish, The Official Ramsgate Guide for 1929, here is the link

Apart from this period midway between the two world wars, which fascinates me I a sort of if history had gone another way, type of way.

Someone in the bookshop today was asking me about the wooden extensions built on the back of the Clock House aka Maritime Museum, I was fairly busy with customers at the time and just flicked through a few guides until I found this picture in the 1929 one and told the customer to do the same with other guides to get the time frame.

The printing of the original guide wasn’t up to much so the detail in the photos aren’t up to much, but interesting from a dating point of view.  

A few photos from the clifftop today, a large amount of starlings on the Pleasurama site, perhaps they know something we don’t  

and this almost needs the caption "It was the soft gloopy stage I like the most

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.
