Even more old postcards of Ramsgate

This time I will have a go at writing something about each card.
 This is Ramsgate Sands Station, the card is the only place I have ever seen it recorded as the marine station now the derelict Pleasurama site.
 This site later became the Marina Swimming Pool and is now a car park
 This is Westcliff Hall opened in 1914 it later became the motor museum and is now derelict

 The smoke in this one would be from the steam engine that powered the winch on the sail powered fishing smack
Ramsgate Town Hall on the junction of Harbour Street and Queen Street I would assume from the writing and banners on it this is Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887

Post a Comment

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.
