A policeman’s lot in Ramsgate

Earlier today I was talking to one of our council officers about antisocial behaviour and pointed out that back in the day the police were completely different inasmuch as the lived in the town or village they policed, so had a vested interest in that town being a nice place. They knew the local problem people and kept an eye on them, I think the key phrase is they were part of the community. 

The conversation made me think of these pictures that all relate to Pc Jordan I know from research that he rescued some horses from the sables in Cecilia Road when the caught fire in 1932. The pictures though say something about policing in Ramsgate that I don’t think words can.


  1. Beautiful photos as always Michael

  2. Thanks Don although I don't think this lot expand very well like some of them do

  3. The easiest way to get the police to attend is to tell them that it's a hate crime against an effnik minority.


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.
