Old pictures of Ramsgate and Margate and some thoughts about 1,500 year old glass.

 Wading through a collection of  books we have just bought for the bookshop I was looking in a fairly badly produced copy of Akerman's Remains of Pagan Saxondom pp3 when I came across this
reference to a glass vase found at Reculver and in a museum in Canterbury. This provided the focus to the our day in Canterbury, while I hoped to find it but failed I did find some other Saxon glass, see today's photos.

Here is the link to them

With none of the largish general East Kent bookshops buying substantial collections apart from us at the moment, here where I work at Michael's Bookshop, we are getting some reasonably interesting books in at the moment.

Here is the link to the pictures of the books we put out yesterday  



considering it would be about £1,000 per lump would you give it a second look at the boot fair or digging in the garden?










 around 1910 I think






around 1860 I think

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.
