Descriptive guide to Ramsgate and Margate C1902, the things you find in Whitstable

I did the two bookshops in Whitstable today
 So a few pictures from my star buy, before the San Clu fire in 1928
After the opening of The Isle of Thanet Trams in 1901

only skimmed through this guide, which I will soon do a reprint of, but I can't find any mention of The Royal Victoria Pavilion - so probably before 1903.

 Several other good finds in the basement of Oxford Street Bookshop in Whitstable
Then on to the new bookshop Harbour Books where we bought an Ian McEwan first edition (published 21st June 2018 34pp My purple scented novel) for £2

I was about once again with my Canon S3 iS camera

Oh what a wonderful dreadful camera it is

This was taken using full manual, for the rest of today's shots in auto of landscape mode here is the link

For a camera you can buy on ebay or in CEX for around £35 that runs on 4 AA batteries and survives being kept in one of my pockets, what can you say.

For the dedicated followers of all things book this is the link to the bookshop blog 

I was in Whitstable on Saturday with my Nikon P90 here is the link to the pictures

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.
