Margate Harbour - early engravings








Four early engravings of Margate Harbour , the top engraving of the Droit House is dated 1812 which is incorrect with the Holy Trinity Church (1828) in the background. The engraving of the square head is dated 1815 , whatever the accuracy of the dating both are of the same period.
Below are two later engravings, the Droit House engraving is post 1824 as the entrance of Jarvis Jetty opened in that year is visable.
The 1842 engraving of the "The Pier at Margate" has a London illustrated news look about it.
