1906 Map of Thanet

This is a fairly rough copy of my 1906 map of Thanet that various people have asked me to make available. I have dated it based on the pavilion built in 1906 being shown and the lift opened in 1908 not being shown.

I will endeavour to do a bit better than just a photo if the map in the fullness of time, click here to view the map.


  1. I can see my house but can't see an airport anywhere. I presume that means the airport will have to move as my house was here years before they built it!

  2. I can see the cliffs but can't see my house anywhere. I presume that means the house will have to move as the seagulls were here years before they built it!

  3. DUUHH there's an airport near that nice house I wanna buy...oh its ok it seems quiet therefore it wont ever be busy. Dork.


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.
