Margate and Ramsgate pictures, same old

This photo of Margate that is one of the ones I posted yesterday has been niggling away like the local history equivalent of the square root of minus one.

 Jetty entrance but where was the jetty, just off to one side I suppose
Funny how old pictures of the pier without the harbour arm seem fine but old pictures of the harbour arm without the pier seem vaguely disturbing.

  I suppose because of the pier being washed away and not replaced.

Whereas when the harbour arm and lighthouse gets storm damage
it gets rebuilt.

Workwise the impact of ITC on the more traditional secondhand bookshop seems to be lessening all the time making the bookshop busier, so not that many books got priced and put out today this is the link to the those that did ITCwise I have just copied 8,400 old pictures of Ramsgate from cloud to cloud.

As an old computer hand I can't stress the importance of saving stuff to the internet cloud

old Ramsgate photos next













I have just got back from my after work walk so this is the link to this evening's snapshots

Post a Comment

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.
