Lunchtime walk ramble pictures in Ramsgate

The weather now being clement I meandered about with my camera at lunchtime, first up is the Pleasurama site, which on reflection doesn’t have the look of a stage finished, but of a hurried downing of tools.
The contractor said in yesterday’s post; “The structural columns which support the transition slab are all fully complete in readiness for the transition slab.” as you can see from the picture they are not finished.

The Cornish pasty people seem to have been a bit naughty too. 
Seems from the bits of paper on the windows that when the bailiffs turned up to remove the stuff there someone had beaten them to it.  
It is interesting times for the shops in town centres, the eatery almost net door to the previous one has reopened, but the underlying problem is the lack of real ordinary shops selling ordinary items. There is only so much eating and drinking out one can do and if shopping centres cease to be shopping centres then all of the things that opened because the shops were there, eateries, estate agents, banks, building societies become less viable.  
Not far from my bookshop another hairdresser is about to open in what was a shop selling things, probably made redundant by out of town shops and the internet.   

As you see from the picture we aren’t short of hairdressers here in King Street.  

Just around the corner from me another addition to the shopping centre, based on the compensation culture. 
I will ramble on. 


  1. I noticed today that a shoe shop will be opening soon in Harbour St where the school clothes shop was

  2. You can't get a good hot meal or a haircut from the internet so maybe the future of High Streets will revolve around these types of shop


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.
