1962 Ramsgate Guide and The East Kent Supercouncil

 I’m still working through a collection of local books, some for me and some for my bookshop and I thought I would photograph this 1962 guide and put online.

Not a carnival guide this one, but fairly typical of the mixture of advertising and local information at the time.

You can see from the bookshop blog post at that some of it went out yesterday.

I have been out bookbuying today Whitstable and Herne Bay, both run by Canterbury Council and coming back to Ramsgate which is run by TDC based in Margate provides a strong argument for change.

Perhaps we could drop both ideas and ask to have Ramsgate run by Canterbury instead of Margate. What with Pleasurama, the council discussing selling off the old motor museum – presumably for housing and the cancellation of the motorcycle sprint revival, it does seem our council have got it in for any leisure in Ramsgate.

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.
