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

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.
