Margate Seafront 1860's







Three engravings of Margate Seafront circa 1860's, the view of Buenos Ayres showing the London Chatham & Dover Railway entrance was published 20th May 1868 and the view of Margate Sands with the bathing machines was published 10th July 1868.
The view looking east is rather exaggerated and shows the iron bridge that once stood where the Clock Tower is today, some of the buildings are even familar today.
