Following on from yesterday's posting of the picture of the pre first world war "Star Inn" , Margate High Street. This photograph was taken about sixty years later of the "Royal Oak" which was down the road at 143 High Street, Margate. Like all buildings on that side of the road it was demolished as part of a road widening scheme and the building of Sheen Court.
Studying the detail, the boarded up building next door has posters advertising the sale of damaged goods from the Hippodrome.
This photograph is from the collection of Mick Twyman and is part of the Margate Historical Society archive and is for downloading.
