The Cliftonville Hotel 1876


This photograph taken in 1876 is of the Cliftonville Hotel , Margate on the corner of Dalby Square. Cliftonville actually took its name from the Hotel which is a fine example of Victorian Architecture which was demolished in the name of progress. Please feel free to download and copy to add to your collection.
This month I will publishing a picture a day of old Margate as a protest at the way Thanet District Council is treating our heritage by keeping the Margate Museum closed and the way Margate has declined. Please feel free to copy anything on my blog to add to your collection and reproduce if you so wish.

Thanks for this, I look forward to the series. Got any good pics of Cecil Square pre-Council Offices?
