Canterbury today, bookshops, photographs, sketching, shopping, books, Ramsgate History, Margate History
I took a few photos in Canterbury here is the link to them
I was pleased to buy this classic book on one armed bandits from the Pilgrim's Hospice Bookshop in Canterbury for £8. Back in the day when I worked as a sort of mechanic I often worked in the entertainment business in the summer, fixing slot machines and other mechanical stuff. Once I have enjoyed the book I expect it sell in the bookshop for around £15. The life of a shop assistant in a secondhand bookshop works in this type of way.
On the bookshop front this is the link to the books that went out yesterday
On the local history front, here is what you get today

This is a the railway train accident in Ramsgate, there were quite a few of these because of the incline in the tunnel. You can see the tent on the site where The Royal Victoria Pavilion will be built in 1903.
