I guess most people will remember last year when we has the Ramsgate Society shop with the stained glass Edwardian shop front in Harbour Street, now of course all ripped out and I am sure in the fullness of time we will get a nice new plastic one.
Anyway you may be wondering what's happened to The Ramsgate Society, well the answer is they have been tinned.
Take a town like Ramsgate, find a position with one of the finest views in the world - overlooking The Royal Harbour - find a shipping container and in no time at all you have a room without a view.
My take is that the town council, tourist information office, the TDC office in Ramsgate and The Ramsgate Society should club together and buy one largish shop in the town that they can all operate from.
Anyway if you want to visit The Ramsgate Society it's in the container by the Maritime Museum or Clock House at the harbour.
Historically in Ramsgate the locals have been tinned or boxed and then left well alone, see http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop710/id5.htm some years ago a couple of these were robbed an once the lead lining had been broken the bodies inside started to go off and had to be removed because of the smell.
