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.

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.
