The Parade, Margate architecture 1890


This photograph dated 1890 is of the Parade, Margate. The detail of Victorian life is fascinating when the detail is enlarged. Like many pictures I have featured lately they have buildings that have either been demolished and burnt to the ground, in this case it is the White Hart Hotel. Another noticeable feature are the railings that became a casualty of the 1953 storm.
The photograph is from the Margate Historical Society archive and belongs to Mick Twyman and is for you to download for your collection.
