Mostly Ramsgate and Margate

The London Boat at Ramsgate, before 1938/9 when the cafe was built on the end of the east pier.
Bit of a spot the difference with tonight's progress on one of my watercolours from the Royal Victoria Pavilion aka Wetherspoons this evening.

A few photos of this evening including some of the major incident focused on Ramsgate Lifeboat Station

work today a fairly quiet day in the bookshop, we managed to get a reasonable amount of books out

Link to photos of the books 

and managed to do some more work improving my workstation in the shop, this needed to be modified so that I can get some more local history books published.




This is outside the Deal Cutter in King St Ramsgate I would guess 1930s

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.
