 Just came across this and its very interesting. I have a copy of the first photo that I got from a print and framing shop that used to be in Snargate Street and it consists of about six individual photos "joined" together, I was told it was done on a tripod taking one shot at a time, taken from the top of the steps by Cowgate cemetery, and its about a yard long in its frame.I now know the reason it was done . Also I think the picture of the POW pier should settle once and for all the location of the "railway gun"  thread, delboy

Great pictures of a bygone age. "Messrs Townsend's" car ferries have come a long way since the 1930s!!

The following photographs are from a self-publicising brochure published by Dover Harbour Board in the 1930s. The quality is not brilliant - my copy of the brochure is photocopied - but I think they're of sufficient interest to be worth posting.
