News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Here is an advert for Prosser the chemist based in Sheerness Sheppey. This was placed in The Sheppey Church Magazine dated 1886. They also had a branch at Snodland.

May I suggest that as we add adverts here we include a caption with the name of the advertiser and source of the advert. This will greatly help people searching the site. :)

Here is an old advert for King`s Chalets for sale at Leysdown on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent. The company was based in Lewisham High Street, South East London and provided these buildings for a deposit of Eighty Eight Pounds and then 24 payments of Eighteen Pounds Six Shillings and Eight Pence. I spoke to a chap I know and he said that his parents had a King`s Chalet on Harts Camp, Leysdown. I should imagine this dates to 1940/50's.
