Old pictures of Ramsgate and Margate and the Ramsgate map example

The pictures will expand if you click on them.









For the most part the whole business of what you are seeing in the old local pictures is mostly resolved with maps and as most of the dialogue about old local photos is now on the local Facebook groups That is where I reply to people.

However I don’t usually post directly to Facebook because of what it does to the pictures in terms of shrinking them and cropping the edges off them

There was some dialogue about this one from yesterday, including the question, what is the building in the distance?

So here is the appropriate bit from the 1908 map (you can buy the map from my bookshop, it is too difficult to post)

and here is the same map with an arrow pointing along the road by the pub, so it is probably the building next to The Yarrow now Thanet College 


This one, not mine, know where you are?

The map explains, although what the various social media sites do to the picture is nearly as hard to explain, so here is the link to the whole map http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/1849map2/

The map is easier for some people on paper and if you are one of them I sell it in the bookshop for a tenner or you could have a go at printing it out yourself. 

Book wise in the bookshop, we got in and put out a fair few Stephen King books among the others on Saturday, a lot of people seem to be reading him at the moment, this is the link to the pictures of the books

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.
