"local boy makes good"














The local blogs are really buzzing over "local boy going bad" which has prompted me to look through the Margate archives to find a genuine case of where a "local boy makes good". The holder of this title in my opinion has to be George Lansell, his claim to fame was to earn a fortune and donate the gold for the Mayor of Margate's chain. This article for downloading is by the late Dr Alan Kay and makes interesting reading into the life of George Lansell.
