Seaside Postcard 85: Almost there...

Ramsgate Comic Seaside Postcard

Another day, another card, and we're approaching the magic 100 mark - and just another 10 days or so until the first birthday of my blog.

Today's card was sent by Etty in 1913, and reported "fine weather so far & are enjoying ourselves. You can guess there are crowds down here..." which summed up this weekend very nicely. Lovely weather, lots of people, all in all a taste of what Ramsgate was and should be.

Pre First World War Donald McGill now that is interesting, is it a German Publication or Max Schillman publisher or EC1 address.

Eek, an expert... It's published by Joseph Asher & Co, 3 & 4 Ivy Lane, London EC. - No. A137 if you're in to details... is that good or bad? OK, it's McGill, they're all good, but are the German ones rarer, or just where they were printed?

I know, I must find out more, I've got loads of these things now, and a surprising number are by Donald McGill, he did churn out thousands...
