Maidstone today, a few old Thanet pictures, a couple of watercolour sketches

first the old local pictures

 Queen Street Ramsgate flooded in 1923 probably the most unusual
 This is Dreamland in 1920

This is one of the earliest local photos, Ramsgate around 1850 before the sands station was built around 1860

 My relaxation during the day were the watercolour sketches, this one is from Bill's in Maidstone

and this from the Wetherspoons which is named The Muggleton Inn and proved a great disappointment as they were expecting a Harry Potter theme
 full of muggles and no sign of Snape, Harry, Hermione

Oh well this is the link to what's on the camera card

and this the link to the books we put out yesterday

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.
