Margate in the Past

As a lover of both photography and all things vintage, I am fascinated by seeing photographs of Margate in the past. Changes in technology are immediately apparent in these historical images, however, the differences in familiar streets and buildings provide a slightly strange feeling.
I know Margate in a certain way and sometimes it is easy to forget that my parents, grandparents, etc. would've experienced it differently. 

I follow a really interesting Facebook page - Margate Local & Family History. They regularly post all kinds of pictures that people have contributed from their own personal collections. I found most of the following images there so take a look at their page. It's wonderful to see Margate through the eyes of others, especially in generations that are totally different to my own. 
Just click on the pictures for larger versions. Enjoy!
