EEk Scone and some old photos of Ramsgate and Margate


The pictures in this post will probably expand if you click on them and this is a link to some I took earlier today

Out to lunch today I had hoped to paint outside but it was just a bit too windy so I played with my preliminary sketch in the Pav.

A bit of a spot the difference mainly focusing on trying to paint some floor in, which has to be done after the people are painted with watercolour and some attempt at painting in one of the dormer windows in the roof.

Another way of looking at this is going to the biggest pub in the wosisname, getting an hour of oblivion but no hangover. 

The EE shop in Ramsgate High Street has closed, (see link to photos above) which however you look at it is not good news.

Here in the bookshop though business still seems pretty much unaffected by other shop closures, BREXIT the town council changing from UKIP to Labour.

We did the usual thing today, put out some books this is a link to the photos of the books  

The annual statutory Ramsgate Town Council meeting this evening this is the link to the agenda

  1. Great to see pictures of the Winter Gardens being built - recently discovered that the idea for the Winter Gardens came from John SAXBY, part of my father's SAXBY family. We were related to the jewellers in Margate High Street as well as the parking attendant at the Bungalow Café at Walpole Bay.

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.
