power cut on Harbour Parade again this evening a few photos and thoughts

 The candles look pretty, I suppose this is down to 100 year old infrastructure, difficult if you are in business this sort of thing though.

Friday night with family members aged from five to oap Wetherspoons seemed the only option after a very busy bookshop day, low value books with a high volume - a lot priced between 5p and 50p - the ones we mostly don't bother to photograph for the bookshop blog. Most of them in the left hand side of the shop window, which is walk in shelving with all the books priced less than 50p.

Wetherspoons was very busy out on the sundeck this evening, so a seat I haven't sat in before, meaning a new and quick sketch of Ramsgate 


  1. Of special interest to me are the Sea Plane and Vye's in Westgate, which was still going strong in Westgate in the 60's.


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.
