Ramsgate artefacts - the Albion House inventory March 2010

Today I asked the town clerk of Ramsgate Town Council for a copy of the inventory for Albion house and he printed off a copy just like that and handed it to me. I  just wish every thing in life was as easy as that and it does prove there is no secrecy regarding Ramsgate Town Council.
Studying the list it is noticeable that there is very little attention to detail and it does read  like a fire auction list. An example being " framed print harbour scene" , now what sort of description is that, it could be a de Loutherbourg, a Francis Jukes print or even something picked up for a tenner at a boot fair. Who is to know ? .
Most of it is recent as in so far as it includes civic gifts but there are items of historic interest that I think require looking into like framed prints for example. I have posted the list for all the Ramsgate watchers as this is public property.
