Margate Edwardian beach scene



















Two images of Edwardian Margate beach entertainment, the top postcard is dated August 23rd 1902 featuring Uncle Bones (Alfred Bourne) and his Minstrels. The other is a photograph circulating in Margate Historical circles dated 1905 and also features Uncle Bones and his Minstrels.

The postcard was actually posted to a Monsieur Paul Roden , Par de Calais as pictured below.
