This selection of over 200 archive images, many previously unpublished, recalls life in the busy seaside communities of Ramsgate and St Lawrence during the last 120 years. All aspects of everyday life are recorded here, from shops and businesses, schools and churches, to pubs and hotels, sporting achievements and entertainment, including dancing competitions on Ramsgate Sands in 1925. Events such as the Ramsgate Harbour Regatta and peace day celebrations in 1919 are recalled, alongside memorable characters, notable officials and beneficiaries who have helped to shape the area. Landmarks such as Ramsgate Harbour and the West Pier are also featured. Ramsgate and St Lawrence Revisited is a valuable history which will reawaken nostalgic memories for some, while offering a unique glimpse of the past for others.
