This guide is part of the 101 Views Series and covers Ramsgate and the surrounding areas of the Isle of Thanet in Kent. It features photos of the principal towns and villages in the area, including Ramsgate, Margate, Broadstairs, Cliftonville, Canterbury etc. It was published by Rock Bros Ltd of London and is undated but is probably from about the start of the 20th Century, pre WWI.

There are 34 pages of photos, some of them are full page size whilst the smallest are 5 to a page. They give good views of the towns and the various piers, promenades, beaches, harbours etc. The photos are very evocative of the era and show what the resorts were like in their heyday.

Cover size 220 x 285mm with the pages being 210 x 280mm. Some of the gold blocking on the front cover is a little tarnished and the frontispiece is a bit grubby otherwise it is still in good condition.

Price £12.00.
Postage & packing for UK £1.75.
