Seaside Postcards 22, 23 & 24: Ramsgate is the place to be!

A sudden and unexpected burst of enthusiasm for scanning today so here's three lovely old comic postcards. The first, sent in 1910, has a short message on the back "Don't be common" - and this is written by the sender! Sent to a Miss Warren in Clapham, clearly there is no need to say what a lovely time is being had, baceause that's a given.

The second card is a slightly battered pull-out card containing 10 great old views of Ramsgate, as well as a slightly risqué verse. Sent in 1927, there's no mesage at all on the back, thus saving a peny on the postage.

And today's third card has a delightful chambermaid inviting the guest to arise and enjoy Ramsgate (not the nasty landlady yelling at the guest as would normally be the case in later years!). More cards soon.
