Private Residents Business Directory Ramsgate 1887-88
A5 format with card cover - 75+ printed pages.
This is my first attempt at one of the Kellys Private Residents and Business sections. I have tried to include all of the odd bits of information that I find useful. This is very much a tool for local history and family history research. It is my hope that other local historians will find it useful. I have published the Street Directory for the same year in the same format, deliberately using two separate booklets as I have found this the easiest way to work i.e. with them both open at the same time.
Includes: - Introduction to Ramsgate and St. Lawrence at the time – List of Aldermen, Councillors, Auditors and Assessors, Magistrates, Burial Board, Police Force and other Public Officers. Information on Churches, Postal Services, Banks, Clubs, Carriage Fares ( 3s. Carriage drawn by 1 horse for an hour!!), Newspapers, Libraries, shipping and Harbour information.
