The Isle of Thanet Visitor’s Guide 1901, how to behave in the bookshop and out and about with me.

After a rather bizarre conversation today I should make if clear that I don’t mind if people spend a long time looking at the books and whether or not they actually buy one. I am also happy to find them something to sit on while the browse.

It’s been a long day with a very busy bookshop at times today, as you see if you click on the link to the photos quite a lot of books went on the shelves too sorry if some of the photos are a bit blurry, I think they are all legible.

I think I’ve got that of me chest, complicated thing researching local history it attracts people to the bookshop who are just not used to using bookshops and frankly if you aren’t in a relaxed state of mind when faced with a multitude of local directories you are likely to make mistakes.

Come to think of it I don’t mind what you do on my various websites either, I decided that once something is shared online, it, to all intents and purposes, has become public property. So feel free to copy the pictures I put on the internet, use them for Christmas cards, put them on Facebook, pretend you took the photo painted the picture if you like.

So here is today’s featured book, here is the link should you wish to buy it online there are some more sample pages from a link on that page too.

And here are the pages from it   

 Originally cheap local guides often had printing quality that owes much to the potato, so we often enhance the images for printing the reprints

A few pictures of Ramsgate taken lunchtime today, here is the high def link for the panorama

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.
