Mystery photos questions and answers, bit of a ramble and a video vlog look at a thanet guide for 1831

 Q 1 Do you know which well known Thanet pub this is? as far as I know it has been rebuilt three times in roughly the same place and this is the second version, not the one we have now.
 Q2 Do you know where this pram race is taking place?
 Q3 never seen this one before, do you know what the lions mark the entrance to?

 Q4 which Thanet hospital?

Q4 do you know where in Thanet this is? Don't worry if you don't I have to put the off really difficult one in for the people who find the rest easy.

A quiet January day here at Michael's Bookshop where I work in Ramsgate, there is a lot of road closure in this part of Ramsgate meaning the busses are not stopping near the bookshop and there is much less passing traffic, making the shop a quieter than it normally is.

This meant a fair bit of stock went out

link to the photos of the books

next another go at vlogging, which I am learning by doing and I hope will get progressively better

Yesterday's answers
 Answer 1 Ramsgate High Street
I had issues getting the image of of Google Earth - the progressive pain of the internet, but you can see how it is now.

 Answer 2. This proved to be a difficult one for most people although Nelson Place in Broadstairs is much the same now.
 as you can see after more trouble copying from Google.

 Answer three was another difficult one, the photo comes from the Mick Twyman collection and he says Athelstan Rd. 1908 I am not entirely certain about this but think it may be where the garage is now, at the junction of Northdown Road
Comment on yesterdays identified as Athelstan Road. I think it looks like the old dental surgery in Dalby Square.
So there it is
No 4 if want more detail about this here is the link

  1. Picture 3 isn't on Althestan Road, the building still stands - its on Dalby Square ;-)


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.
