King Street Ramsgate in 1939, bit of sketching in Canterbury



These are the Ramsgate 1938/39 street directory pages for King Street, I don’t think there were any directories from 1940 to 1948 because of the war and associated paper shortage


This is 138 King Street from Katharine Brown’s post to the Facebook group Friends of Ramsgate Seafront https://www.facebook.com/groups/1591056714503080/permalink/2000253250250089/ 

These are the Ramsgate 1938/39 street directory pages for King Street, I don’t think there were any directories from 1940 to 1948 because of the war and associated paper shortage, so hopefully the right owners as she said early 40s and this is the closest.

Here is the link for buying the directory http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id327.htm obviously you can come into the bookshop and browse it.


I’ve been watercolour painting in Canterbury today

This one is finished, I think

And this was a quick sketch in Chocolate Café after finishing the other one

A few Canterbury photos from today



















A relaxed day off although we bought a lot of books for the bookshop, but then it’s usually a bit of a busman’s holiday for me. Here is the link to the pictures of the books that went on our shelves yesterday http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/born-to-run-in-bookshop.html

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
