Midweek ramble

I haven’t been out much this week due to the weather, so not many pictures.

As you see the covers have come off much of The Alexandra and it looks like a very good job think this building is about 100 years old, so it was probably a makeover.

The building on the front of Harbour Street is also having a new shopfront.

On the local history front, have now the mother of all printers and am just about able to print large format maps and local pictures.

I am starting with the 1849 coloured map of Ramsgate and hope to be selling it on Friday, it comes out between A1 and A0 size and will sell for £9.99, I think it should make a reasonable Christmas present.

Production isn’t guaranteed as this is a new process for me, with new equipment.

I will ramble on here if I think of anything else to say.

Post a Comment

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.
