Ramsgate's Bounty

The Bounty being towed out of harbour in 1951

Originally called the Alastor, the Bounty transported many emigrants to New Zealand, and later brought timber from Finland to the Kent coast. In 1946 she was brought to Ramsgate, renamed Bounty and converted into a floating restauarant. She was moored near the Clock House in the pier yard until 1951 when she was taken to London for the Festival of Britain, and later broken up.
A further 36 pictures depicting Ramsgate's past have been uploaded to the picture album. These are mainly but not exclusively of the harbour area. Click HERE to view them.
