Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. The Book People
Sittingbourne's steady growth from mid Victorian times began with construction of a railway line linking London to east Kent ports. It bisected the town already renowned for its brick and cement manufacture. Paper making subsequently predominated. Workers for these industries often moved from the countryside. Terraces of houses accommodating them arose either side of the main Watling Street thoroughfare. Today economic growth continues apace, but with a far greater range of commercial enterprises. However, some more recent settlers seek their livelihoods in the metropolis. This fantastic selection of old postcards provides an interesting insight into mainly Edwardian times - a vital stage in this town's development. They are fascinating too because of their universal usage. As everyday as emails yet just as revolutionary in their heyday.
