Pier over the Jetty

 Ramsgate had 3 piers, the East Pier or Stone Pier
 The Pier, hit by a torpedo, removed by the council, struck by a steamer, demolished to make way for the sea, some people will believe anything, and I'm a believer. 
 The West Pier which was once mostly wood
 So what were piers built for?
 and how would you date this photo?
 Build a pier in 2 easy lessons and one really hard one
from This position you can steer the Pav towards the West Pier ta pocketa ta pocketa
whoops I Mitty'd

Margate has a pier but also had a jetty

 Until it was destroyed in 1978

well now Maragte has a new FaceBook group called "Memories of Margate Jetty (1855-1978)" which you may wish to join.

this is the link to it 

The life of a bookseller can be very demanding we priced some books today, took photos of them, and put them out for people to buy in the bookshop

this is the link to those photos

I went for a walk in Ramsgate Yesterday and took some photos

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.
