Ramsgate pictures from 10 and 110 years ago and a slice through the Sands Hotel in Margate

 Back ten years ago there was much beavering away at preparing the Pleasurama site in Ramsgate, work to the cliff top
 moving the roundabout
 with issues related to laying blocks on sand where wave overtopping could mean waves full of slabs being an issue.
 Pugin's Grange was newly restored
 The church restoration
 still only a future consideration.

 we had the mother of all scaffolding

 I blogged pictures of the 1906 Floral Fete in Ellington Park

 not sure about this one, any ideas?

oh yes and this one, back when in Margate the shoreline by the lower High Street was about where the middle of the Sands Hotel is now.

This is the link to today's work in the bookshop

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.
