Dreamland Remembered

I found this book while having a butchers arround Amazon the other day and thought it worth a mention.

It appears to be 128 pages of mostly photographs of our once proud amusment park.

I'm not sure what the pricing was about though as there were offered 2 new from 15.99 but a used copy at 41.88!

Inside this book you should find images of the Scenic Railway which was built in the 1920's and is still in use when the original edition came out in 2003. Talking of the original edition it was called "Dreamland Remembered: The Story of Margate's Amusement Park - Includes the Lido, Cliftonville" so I'm guessing that the Lido gets a look in to.

If you want to know what it once was like here in Thanet this could be the book for you.
