Pamela Brisley Wilson (nee Pamela Howie)

It has been a long while since I reproduced anything from the Margate Historical Society archive on Thanetcoastlife. However, yesterday I received news that earlier on in the year a regular contributor to the archive Pamela Brisley Wilson had died. Pamela's contributions were very detailed accounts of living in Margate in the 1930's and the account I have reproduced is from the day War broke out in 1939.
Pamela's family had a gift shop in Marine Terrace at the outbreak of the Second World War which adds a nice little touch .

A tragic accident

The car pictured above was pictured at a Police road safety exhibition and I am sure the Police will not mind me using this picture. This is because the driver of this car was using a mobile phone when they pulled out into the path of a oncoming motorcycle. The driver, passenger and the motor cyclists were killed instantly. A picture like this can speak a thousand words.

The skies over Thanet

Hands up if you think this photograph was taken over Thanet.
