Here are two lovely old 1840s prints of Ramsgate buildings - East Cliff and West Cliff Lodges.
East Cliff Lodge was the home of Sir Moses Montefiore, who bought the property in 1831. Its grounds now form the King George VI park, although the property no longer exists (following an unhappy period in the ownership of Thanet District Council). The Italianate greenhouse, recently restored to its former glory, is one of the few surviving parts of a once great estate. The print is taken from an original now held in the National Maritime Museum, and predates Sir Moses' purchase, as it records the house as being the seat of Lord Keith.
West Cliff Lodge is best known now as the site of the former model village. Built in the early years of the 19th century, by a Mr. Benson and known as Royal Villa, this was the residence of the Earl of Darnley, and yet another of the houses used by Princess Victoria in Ramsgate.
Aaaah, if only I'd been born in the early 19th Century. With loads of money. And a title.
