Apart from Martin & Co’s excellently researched and interesting text the book contains many pictures: - Sandgate – Hythe Horse Tramway, Sandgate Hill Lift, Sandgate High Street 1860s & 1903, Turnpike Toll House, Sandgate Esplanade, Sandgate Hill (Upper Folkestone Road), Martello Terrace, The Bevan Hospital, The Star and Garter Home, Damage to May Terrace 1923, Rex Cinema, Demolition of Sea Point Café, Tower Flats and More.
I have just noticed 2 interesting pictures of old Sandgate on Zumi’s excellent local blog

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
