Picture of Boots the Chemist in Harbour Street Ramsgate and a few others

Click on the picture to expand it and then click on it to expand it again. I think I remember this building as Timothy Whites, I have finished work in the bookshop for the day and am writing this at home, which is a nuisance when it comes to dating phots. If I were writing this in the bookshop I would just look it up in the directories, I did try using the internet to find out but have tired of websites trying to sell me cosmetics I don’t use. Does anyone know when Boots was in Harbour Street.   
I think this one is abut the same time but looking the other way.
The first two pictures are freshly scanned so here is the link to where you can download the high definition versions https://photos.app.goo.gl/UiipDUHhq8X1hVYt1

In the bookshop I am noticing a stronger demand for what I think of as dated modern fiction, this is the type of book that falls somewhere between the pulp fiction and the potential literary classic. A fair amount of these went out on the shelves today, here is the link to the pictures of them http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/wilt-in-bookshop.html

  1. Timothy Whites was next door towards town centre - last part of Boots was down some steps and contained their lending library (c1960)


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.
