Convents, convalescent homes and Ramsgate, Miles Bar changes hands

Another of the Old Ramsgate pictures I bough on Sunday
Reading the back and noting the 1937 date and trying to make a mental picture of the good old days I don't seem to be getting very far in terms of thinking of something to say about it. 

 A couple of convent ones from the other side of Thanet.

 the new proprietors of Miles have taken possession today and have closed for the day but will be open tomorrow and will continue with a slow sea change, I am looking forward to this. 
Although it's a bit of an acute angle I sometimes go there for breakfast or lunch and sketch the view

This is the link to the photos on my camera card for today

One thing about Ramsgate waterfront is that it changes every day.

On the Pleasurama site it is beginning to look as though they are moving the mountain towards Broadstairs, what that would signify is in the hands of the gods.

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.
