Oh Yes It Is, exhibition at The Beaney in Canterbury. Some old photos of Canterbury, Ramsgate and Margate. A bit of sketching in Canterbury – ramble type of thing.

The pictures should expand when you click on them, copying with the photo balanced on the computer using the mobile phone isn't the best method I know and if anyone finds any of the pictures are a bit blury let me know and I will have another go. 
 Some have the dates on the back like this one 1952
nothing on the back of the Ramsgate one, however Ramsgate Festival of Light opened in 1949 I bought the pictures above in Herne Bay yesterday

This says service in Holy Trinity Church [Margate]

The, "Oh Yes It Is" exhibition at The Beaney in Canterbury is well worth a visit and it's free.

I bought some books for the bookshop and this is the link to the ones that went on the shelves yesterday 
Including these two with their contemporary covers

did a bit of sketching in Chocolate Cafe
This one is a bit, spot the difference.

La Trappiste aka The Canterbury Belgian Cafe that closed, which was Deakin and Co is now going to be Deakin's - pub and kitchen

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.
