The town has been a significant maritime port since the Middle Ages. It became a popular place for holidaymakers in the 18th century, owing to easy access via the Thames, and later with the arrival of the railways. The Margate Pier was initially constructed of wood in 1824. It was rebuilt in iron in 1855 and extended and added to over the years. Unfortunately, it closed in 1976 over safety concerns. This aquatint print is a beautiful reminder of time past.
