It's A Small World

The Model Village,
West Cliff,

There's something quite poignant about this image: the little girl (who has hopped the fence, I should point out) looks down sadly on an event that she would dearly like to attend but, if she did, would just end up trashing the place with her great clonking feet, like a Home Counties Gojira in Start Rite sandals. The little model people try and ignore her, hoping desperately that she'll go away and menace the High Street or the water mill instead.

Ramsgate Model Village opened in 1953, and closed for good fifty years later, which is rubbish, but more or less exactly would you expect from a crappy year like 2003.
