Two pictures of the Oval for the Margate Historicl faithful to download. The Oval was excavated in 1897 and the banstand was built in 1903 to give some timescale. The Hotels around the Oval were built between 1890 to 1905. In this airial postcard taken some time in the 1920's the Endcliff Hotel can be seen mid way on the far left and the Queens Highcliff in the top right hand corner.
Below is a 1940's view of the Oval published by Photo Precision, St Albans, this postcard enlarges well and has good detail to study.
