Margate Harbour 1820

This print is of Margate Harbour looking towards the parade has been dated 1820.When dating prints from this view always look for Holy Trinity Church which was constructed in 1824 to accommodate the spiritual needs of visitors to the town. Also on the horizon there are three windmills the one furthest on the right was set alight by smugglers in 1836.
One interesting point is the railings on the Harbour Wall surprisingly enough being a listed building today the harbour cannot have railings, strange.
