Paddle Steamers at Margate and Ramsgate in Photographs

In the Mick Twyman collection there are hundreds of images of paddle steamers. Mick studied the paddle steamer trade at Margate in depth and wrote a  complete history of the paddle steamer trade at Margate and Ramsgate . I can assure reader's Mick articles had been heavily researched.
I have attached a selection of photographs and postcards of paddle steamers for your enjoyment and please feel free to download and share.
