Ramsgate in 1947 and Café Rouge at Westwood Cross pictures

You know what life’s like, someone shows you 1947 guide to Ramsgate but you replaced your phone two days earlier and you haven’t mastered the camera that well.

Anyway I did manage to copy a few pages and hope to find my own copy so I can copy it and add it to my range of local book. 

I have also added four Ramsgate postcards and the beginnings of a watercolour sketch I did at Café Rouge at Westwood Cross this evening

Here are the books that went out in my bookshop today as you see a fair amount of local history, which is encouraging.

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.
