sorry in a bit of a rush today I'm afraid I lost the Margate questions and I just don't have time to start again.
I have to fess up to doing some work today namely consolidating the two art alphabets in the new bookcases.
As you can see the shelves are very narrow and this means that I can now mix large books and small books without them getting damaged.
After viable photography locally around 1855 and before the Albion hotel demolished around 1890 some photos show the hotel saying The Albion and some Royal Albion which I am taking as the later ones after about 1870, but this is mostly conjecture.
This is what I take to be a much later view, but before 1890
Below ‘72-‘76 as not all the inner harbour has pontoons. The “Agenor” is on the lowest part of the cross wall so that cars could drive straight off through her side door and the “Autostrada” is in the outer harbour. Charlie Booth’s crane is working at the forward hold of the “Agenor” to lift VW vans from the bottom deck.
Many thanks to Derek Pettit for the information about these 2 photos above.
