Which Thanet Mill, Sharon Hendy at York Street Gallery in Ramsgate

 So do you know which of our mills this is? I'll put the answer at the botom of the post lare this evening
 This is Palm Bay in 1913

York Street Gallery in Ramsgate has an exhibition by Sharon Hendy 30 Oct - 6 Nov 19, photos of the pictures

I gather that the largest part of the old Lewis and Hyland store
 lately The Schoolwear Centre, is to re open as a convenience store 

A fairly quiet day at work here at Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate
Link to the photos of today's books
Technology wise I am considering buying a phone with a better camera, I normally buy budget phones and am considering the Moto g8 plus, as I use my phone a lot for pictures for this blog, meaning you dear reader, look at them, any suggestions appreciated.

as I said at the top of this post there will be more to come including the name and location of the mill
The answer to which mill is Pierremont Mill, Broadstairs also sometimes called Broadstairs Mill by Holman Bros who owned it. Near to the site of the pub called The Bradstow Mill although there I can't find any historical reference to a mill called Bradstow Mill.

The other Broadstairs Mill looks different

This is St Peter's Mill.
We had supper at Wetherspoons aka Royal Victoria Pavilion Ramsgate

 note the film crew making a film outside
 you can see from the photos I really do need to upgrade my phone
it's the sort of situation where I don't really want to pull a camera out of my pocket only to be told not to take photos.

 I did a bit more to my watercolour sketch there


  1. Hi Michael, regarding the mill pictured, named as St Peter's, which steeple is that seen on the far right?

  2. I think it may be Andrew's, Reading Street


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.
