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

Spent some of my formative and favourite teenage years in Folkestone back in the 70's in a local kids home and remember very well the Funfair as portrayed in Numanfan's first photo.  At the time the people were good to many of us in the home, but I have to say that was in stark contrast to how it is now.

Looking through some of my dad's old postcards, I found this one.
