The Captain – a view from Ramsgate harbour circa 1898 or maybe early 1900’s – before the first world war.
About The Captain
The traction engine has just placed a Council Road Works van for a gang of men for a gang of men who will repair and ensure the upkeep of the station.
The captain is a bit disgruntled because he wants to get his ship underway.
There was a lot of sea traffic in those days, in and out of the very busy Ramsgate Habour. Especially with its fishing fleet. Fish for sale can be seen in this painting.
