 Question 1 well the answer is obviously a prominent address in Ramsgate but the question is do you know the name of the road and where this road is in Ramsgate?

 Question 2 do you know which Thanet pub this is?

 Question 3 do you know where in Thanet this photo was taken and what the brick stucture with the railings on top of it is?

Question 4 do you know which Thanet hotel this is?

fairly busy in Michael's Bookshop where I work in Ramsgate, but not like it ought to be because of the roadworks.

I did a bit more to my watercolour sketch in The Pav aka Spoons over an after work burger

here are yesterday's answers
 Answer 1 Queen's Head, Harbour Parade Ramsgate

 Answer 2 Wellington Crescent, Ramsgate

 Answer 3 This is the star item and something I had never seen a photo of before, this is the entrance from Granville Gardens to the entrance to the tunnel that came out on the Marina Road incline. The Marina Road incline end of this was later converted in to the fire exit for the Granville Theatre.

Link to Ben Kelly's guest post about this tunnel this has much more information and photos of inside the tunnel.

Answer 4 This is the The Victoria, Westbrook specialised in invalid children, was part of the Victoria Hospital in Chelsea and I think the Westbrook part would have been mostly convalescent.

The most informative facebook comment was "Linda Westcott Michael Child Aha, I remember it being called The Day Hospital back in the 1960s. It was being used up until a few years ago the Elderly waiting for Care Home places or for support in their own homes after being discharged from hospital. .

Answer 5 I think was pretty much impossible.

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.
