Old Ramsgate and Margate pictures and a minor ramble same old,same old really

Starting with the, is politically incorrect the right phrase here? 1818 is rather a long time ago  

 This is Bobby's in Northdown Road although I can't really decipher what the ground floor level is or even if it is there
Here is what it looks like now, well last year actually link to other photos there then possibly some sort of shop mining operation, I will ask a grownup.

 I think Westonville is another name for Westbrook

 Possibly when notionaly part of the wild west

 Some Ramsgate ones now

All a bit one small area I know, these were on file and organised that way.

Next the new dog PSPO beach map

Green = dogs are allowed at any time of year
Amber = dogs allowed on the beach but with restrictions
Red = no dogs between 1 May- 30 Sept

Important as dog poo contains Toxocariasis which can be harmful especially young children who like to play on beaches.

Here is the link to it on the council website

Note the two different amber dog beach traffic light stages I am not sure if you can be fined for being in charge of a dog while not being able to tell the difference.

  1. Often see you in Margate. Your papped pic is a good likeness. Don't you EVER smile? All those fried breakfasts are depressing you perhaps?


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.
