Some August Thanet photos

Local history is a strange business and I think the most difficult time to cover in Thanet during the time between the end of the second world war and the late 1990s. Finding photos is particularly difficult.  

Around 2010 I started putting the photos I took out and about on the internet. I did live in Ramsgate from sometime in the 1960s and around 1972 I did take quite a lot of photos, but these were of family, friends, motorbikes, etc. it never occurred to me to take lots of pictures of the Thanet towns and at the time I don’t think they would have been much use for anything.

If you want to get to the pictures I took it’s really a matter of working back through this blog using the blog archive wosisname on the sidebar

Most of the pictures are probably on webpages with a series of link along the top, like the ones I am putting up this month


The pictures I took today being at

with some older August ones being at


At times I have thought about going through and deleting the worst photos, but never got round to it

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.
