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

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.
