Margate Fishing Festival 1913


The Margate Fishing Festival was once a huge event in Margate's social calendar.Every year, a celebrity would be invited to open the proceedings, and in 1913, that distinction fell to the famous actress Cecillia Dare, sister of the equally well known Phyllis.The lovely Cecillia Dare can be seen touching her hat brim amongst the crowd. This photograph, from the Margate Historical Society archives appeared in the societies millennium booklet on page 20. I reproduced this photograph as it is amazing that everybody are wearing hats of different styles and varieties.
