Photos of Old Broadstairs

This page (or pages as time goes by) will contain photos of Broadstairs from times gone by. There have been so many reminiscences on the Guestbook from people about their times spent in Broadstairs & St Peters that there will be some who have old photos which may bring back even more memories.

If you have some photos you would like to make available please email me and let me know what you would like to share.

In these days of litigation I have to have some rules about what you submit. See the details here.

Broadstairs-circa-1970 Tartar-Frigate These are a couple of images of ours, one shows Janie when ponchos were last in fashion (late 1970 or early 1971). The other shows the Tartar Frigate public house and you can just see the Hotel On the Jetty to its left which later became The Mad Chef Bistro and is now a private house, the date of this photo has not yet been established - perhaps someone can help?

York-Gate-1 York-Gate-2 These are two old postcards we have, I have no idea who might own the copyright on these two as there is nothing on the back to indicate the company. The first one was a card posted on 16th July 1909 and I believe the boat on the harbour may be the lifeboat. If anyone knows any more about these two please contact me.

Jetty-rebuild Jetty-rebuild These photos are copyright Eric Woodruff who lives locally. These were taken when the Jetty last underwent a rebuild, we think this may have been around 1973-1975 but are not sure, can anyone confirm when this work was done?
