Ramsgate Model Village Agricultural Show, a Margate fire in 1882 and is it Margate?

I do have a few model village photos, here are a couple of links to more Link 1     Link 2  Well I hope I got that right as I have had a difficult computer day 
A bit hard to work out everything going on here, the photo should expand if you click on it 

 I think these two are Thanet and probably Margate, answers on a postcard?
Update  Whitehead Edward S & Sons shipping agents 44 Northdown Road Cliftonville
the usual eclectic batch of books in the bookshop today, here is the link 

 It does look as though Mt. Pleasurama is being spread out to form a flat area
 I have high hopes for a funfair

I had a sneak preview inside The Green Tara aka Belgian Cafe better pictures on their Facebook page, this is the link to it

The main observation is that the it is smaller, the back part under the two Regency/Georgian houses is no longer part of it and the kitchen has gone meaning all of the cooking is to be done on the bar. Should be open around the coming weekend.

On the Manston front, the council has put forward a plan to preserve Manston for the proposed airfreight hub by allocating the housing sites in other parts of Thanet this is the link to the news article

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.
