Old Margate Pubs - The Star Inn , Margate High Street

This picture is of the Star Inn, Margate, 161 High Street it is so rare it is probably the only one in existance. It is from the collection of Tony Lee who sent it in following a request from a reader Steve S who ancestors once ran the pub.
The pub was demolished around the first world war.

I can’t quite believe it! At last a photo of the Star Inn! Many thanks to you Tony for asking around, and to Tony Lee for lending this magnificent photo. You have both made my day!

Just for your information, one brother ran the pub, whilst to the left of the pub, at 159 High Street, the other brother’s family lived. His wife was an agent for the “News of the World”, and you can just see a sign on the side of the house in the alleyway between the two properties.

Steve, I was just as amazed as you was when Tony Lee came up with the picture. I had been asking around and it was assumed there wasn't any.
