Pleasurama update and a few old and new pictures

Click on the pictures to expand, my guess is that this Ramsgate Sands photo was taken around 1950

This Margate one says 1953 on the file

photos today

Walking down Bellevue Road Ramsgate I noticed what looked like a lightship on the horizon
Zooming my camera as far as it will go

well not really far enough, it never is, but it looks like the East Goodwin

Pleasurama today the first real sign of a change in direction


they are using a digger to move the mountain of chalk that has been there since around 2010, the chalk is being spread out and some of it is now going over the foundations that were put in in 2010.

There is this rumour that they intend to build out the apartments once known as Cardy's Condoms and not build the hotel. Can this be right? I suspect the council knows what's going on.

Here is the link to the rest of today's photos apologies for the rather lazy approach of copying them from my camera card to my website.

Here is the link to the books that went out in the bookshop a few A & C Black colour plate books from around 1900 for anyone who collects 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.
