Broadstairs, Kent - part 3
Photographs of an attractive seaside resort
(Photos ©urban75, 29/30th November 2009)
A view of the picturesque Serene Place.
Similar view from a 1952 postcard.
Beach scene showing the stairs down from the promenade.
This photo may look like I'd used an extreme wide angle lens, but the building really is as distorted as it appears!
Some more beach views:
Disused ornate water fountain by the beach.
A windy and wet afternoon in Broadstairs!
Inside the Tartar Frigate.
Old shelter by the beach.
Not much business around.
A couple walks along the promenade at dusk.
A last look at the beach.
The Crampton Tower Museum, seen from Broadstairs railway station. Thomas Russel Crampton (1816-1888) is most famous as a designer of locomotives and of railways, but was also involved with gas, water works and submarine telegraph cable, laying the first reliable telegraph cable under the English Channel.
A last look at Broadstairs from the railway station, looking back into the town and towards the coast.
