Where in Ramsgate was/is this?

One for the local history buffs this, sorry I haven’t had time for a more complex post, bookshop business in Margate and Canterbury today, if you click on the link you can see how many books got priced and put away on Saturday

I did get time to do a bit more to my watercolour sketch from Chocolate Café in Canterbury this afternoon, so a photo of that too.   


  1. I seem to think Sacketts was on church hill as you approach St Georges church main gate......

  2. I agree; Church Hill, the building is different now but houses the Micro Museum - the stone pillar to the left of the picture still exists.

    A bit more about A D Sackett, which probably dates the photo as post 1913...

  3. should have said "right of picture"


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.
