More old Thanet pictures and a bit of painting

 This Broadstairs view looks to be from around 1900, I am not enough of a Broadstairs historian to date it accurately. All of the pictures should expand well if you click on them a bit.
 This Ramsgate view is from between 1935 and 1940 as the Marina Swimming Pool is there but not the Granville WW2 bomb damage
 This Margate one is postmarked 1912 so the photo was taken before then, but probably not that long before, as I would guess the sender wouldn't have bought the card

 and this one postmarked 1907

 This one looking up King Street in Ramsgate from Market Place must be from before 1909 when the Prince Albert closed
For me the first day sitting outside painting for any length of time in 2018, I started this one from outside Electro Chocolate Cafe last autumn
 This is mostly about playing with the perspective and having multiple vanishing points
 I did eventually get a bit cold and have to go inside where I succumbed to another pot of tea and a chocolate muffin.

Here is the link to the latest acquisitions in the bookshop 

I have to admit to not following the usual practice of putting them in the window, but leaving the Elvis Presley window in for weekend walk amusement

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.
