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.
