Cinque Ports Margate and Ramsgate prints from around 1870

First this group of 5 Victorian engravings of Ramsgate these should expand if you click on them, they would be done for firms like Rock & Co in London and sold in albums or used in guides as tipped in plates.

I was inspired to take them out of an an album and photograph them for this post as we went to the Cinque Ports to eat in Margate and I photographed the ones in the gents there but my phone just wasn't up to the job.

Here are the photos from there that did come out sort of ok

Three Children's meals including ice cream I had pate on toast including drinks £22 which seemed very good value to me.

Here is the link to the books that went out in the bookshop today

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.
