Old Thanet pictures, possible ramble

 This is where Ramsgate Marina Swimming pool was built in the early 1930s it opened in 1935 as there are no bathing machines I would guess the picture to date from the 1920s or early 30s

 Newgate Gap before 1909 from the postmark

 The Wintergardens dated in the text on the back 1939

 I think thiss is probably 1950s

 This one a splendid time in 1910

I have been having one of those butter side down types of day so am surprised any photos of the photos were in focus. As usual my problems were failing technology related, I wonder just how many electronic and electrical components the average person relies on to get through the day at the moment.

I guess it’s easier if you don’t have to make a living in this modern world, although I guess getting behind, particularly with personal tech is the real danger area. The pervious tech has all but gone.

Out till, cash register, wosisname in the bookshop has finally conked out after about 30 years, so I am on the lookout for another one, must have a receipt and tally roll if anyone has one they want to sell.

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.
