some mystery photos yesterday's answers and some photos from today

 Q1 do you know what this Thanet attraction was and where it was? photos above and below

q2 this photo was taken 10 years ago here in Ramsgate, do you know what was going on, what is being heated up and what happened?

Answers to yesterday's questions

 Starting with the one people found the most difficult I think this is the mechanism to the old funicular lift to Viking bay in Broadstairs the top being behind The albion Hotel

 This is the concrete bathing hut structure on Ramsgate's western undercliff

where the picture above was taken from and how, was it doctored and so on came up quite a bit in the Facebook comments. It was taken with a Pentax DSLR and Tamron 80 - 210 mm zoom lens I bought secondhand around 1980. the photos below were taken from the same place wiht the same kit at the same time. Top of the Granville Tower. All hand held so the horizons are a bit squiff as I was concentrating on keeping it still.

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.
