A few years back I started reproducing back articles from the Margate Historical Society magazine for downloading which have attracted a lot of interest from people who have googled Margate or Cliftonville looking for a specific subject. In the recent Margate Civic Society newsletter I came across this article by Suzannah Foad on Dably Square , Cliftonville . I approached Suzannah and asked her if I could reproduce her article as a fact sheet for anyone researching Cliftonville , Dalby Square or the Reeve family and she has agreed. Suzannah is a researcher specialising in Margate family history and can be found by Googling, Margate Local & Family History.
For anyone interested in the Margate Civic Society they can be contacted on the web address I have on my sidebar or can be found on google. They produce a very factual newsletter on Margate's history and the editor is James Brazier.
Today, I received some good news from Thames Talback makers of the series Great British Railway Journeys series 2 which begins on BBC2 from Monday 3rd January at 6.30pm for five weeks. Margate will be featured on the 26th January programme featuring Margate's seaside heritage and the Bathing Machine. I am pleased to say that the Margate Historical Society team have made a contribution by providing information for the programme which is another notch on the Margate Historical Society bed post. As I keep saying Margate's History is undergoing a renaissance and the making of the programme is further proof.
