Where were these three Thanet photos taken and yesterday's answer





Yesterday's question was a difficult one here is a link to it in case you missed the post, but it is an important one as it highlights one of the great problems relating to the older local history books and that is they are history books and not mostly about the time they were written but historical times before.

The answers I did get thought it was from John Lewis's The History and Antiquities as well Ecclesiastical as Civil of the Isle of Tenet written and published in the early 1700s, and indeed much of what it says is reiterated there meaning many people think it was written in the early 1700s.

Lewis does explain in his marginal notes, but few follow this.

So here is yesterday's answer.

William Lambarde (1576), A Perambulation of Kent: Conteining the Description, Hystorie, and Customes of that Shyre.

Work getting Michael's Bookshop here in Ramsgate ready to open is moving along

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.
