Great new Pictures donated by Kim Conway

Today some pictures from Kim Conway a local Photographer herself, she has collected these postcards of Margate and is happy to share them with us all. The first is a view of the Marine Parade and now called The Piazza. The card was posted in 1909 and we just love the clothes of the period, Lovely Hats Ladies, and look into the Background what do you see?

The second is a more recent colour card posted in 1927 which shows that a view of Margate existed then too.

Coming Soon Pictures from Local Residents

The first of many I hope, pictures donated for scanning onto the site from local residents collections. This will give us all something to smile about. Sad News Ramsgate Maritime Museum will be closing again after the failure of the Council to sign a new lease. Makes you wonder if Thanet wants or understands the importance of local independant History? What do you think?
