This picture is from the south side of the Margate Place, Margate dated around 1883-84 and is from the collection of Anthony Lee who I would like to thank for sharing it with us.

George Mence Smith's name is in black and white mosaics, still visable as you walk through the doorway of number 18 Market Place today .

I am the 3 x great niece of George Mence Smith.
Would it be possible for someone to take a photo of the mosaic of his name for me, please?
I would be really grateful.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
