British photographic history
Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I could not resist sharing this albumen print taken in about 1880s.
I admired its content and composition which I think is outstanding.
I would appreciate any clarification about the location. Could it be Ramsgate?

I'm sorry, I can't identify the location, but the date is c.1894-8. This is indicated by the evidence of dress, particularly that of the ladies and girl in the foreground. Perhaps the time frame will help in some way.
Google images throws up plenty of images: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Newgate+Gap,+Cliftonville,+Margat...
