Fathers Day is fast approaching and we’ve got some great gift ideas for you!
Why not give Dad (or Grandad) our latest publication, Memories of Margate? This beautiful book investigates significant events in Margate’s history beginning with the first government land sales in the 1860s, early landowners, and the gradual development of the area that would one day become the suburb of Margate. Maps and photographs are used to illustrate a story enlivened by oral histories of former and present day residents.
