I Promote Margate Ramsgateand Broadstairs towns of The Isle of Thanet plus it's wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Margate and Cliftonville. I test this theory as often as possible.
I saw the John Sargent programme tonight about the Frith photo album iof England in the 1890's. I have long known of Frith postcards and photo's but what Sargent is doing going back and trying to find some of the locations of the originals pictures and taking a modern view. Obviously things have changed and in some instances buildings have been demolished and shots have changed beyond all recognition.I was also taken buy a shot of a Farmer making hay some time in the 1890's and John went to a heritage farm where they still use heavy horses. I wish them well in their venture but I dont think we can produce enough food that way but it looked idylic.Click here for HEAVY HORSES
