Eastcliff from the air pre 1940


Another poached aerial photograph copied from the Sunbeam collection in the Margate Museum archive, owned by TDC. This one was taken above the inner harbour pre August 1940, and looks very much like the view the Lutwaffe would have had during the bombing raid in August 1940 on Ramsgate.
From this view certain buildings can be seen that received a direct hit on that fateful raid.
The abscence of traffic is also noticable considering the amount of people on the beach.
