The Ramsgate Tugs Called Aid a bit of Canterbury sketching.

I think this is a picture of one of the elusive Ramsgate tugs called Aid that isn't the double ended two funnelled tug called Aid you usually see, a bit of compulsive clicking on the picture should enlarge it a bit. I think this would date from around 1870 but am not really sure.

This is the one you usually see which came to Ramsgate in around 1885, I think although I could well be wrong.

Anyway any help with this conundrum as always appreciated.

I spent most of today in Canterbury

This one now has a blueish sky although it didn't photograph well.

as for the grey building in the foreground, it was yeller then grey now whitish, I don't want to talk about it.

As you see from the books that went out in the bookshop on Saturday, plenty of children’s and local history books including a copy of the elusive Thanet at War, which we never seem to be able to get enough copies of, here is the link to the pictures of them

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.
