Ramsgate Margate Photos, Making up a bit of history

 Recognise the big big D and after 1964 from the reg
 You would need a special hat to drive something like that

Apologies I have just realised one of the pictures I was looking at while doing some research into a plane shot down over Margate during the war got included in this post in error. I removed it as it is copyright.

building a speedboat in an an upstairs bedroom
 only really means removing the wall at some point
  The importance of special hats when driving at speed can't be over emphasised
 I should stress here that I am not a Margate historian so having looked at the photos I made the text up.

 Mind you the geographically disadvantaged text writer in Ramsgate gave me a bit of confidence 

 X of course marks the spot, which is probably where we stayed
 Note Wellington Crescent during its red period

This is back when Ramsgate had beach huts

Sketching from a different position over brunch at the Pav aka Spoons today

Really tucked in the corner today, this was due to the noise coming from the slipways and my tinnitus which I didn't want set off.

I think back in the day, before colour photography i guess, when people would sit down and sketch with watercolour, there just weren't so many vehicles in the way, so views from first floor level didn't happen much. You can see from the photo that it is difficult to give this sense of looking down.

It's looking as though it's going to another week before the bridge goes in on the crosswall

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.
