Sittingbourne's steady growth from mid-Victorian times began with the construction of a railway line linking London to east Kent port, bisecting the town. Sittingbourne was renowned for its brick and cement manufacture, although papermaking subsequently predominated the town's industry. Workers for these trades often moved from the countryside. Terraces of houses accommodating them arose either side of the main Watling Street thoroughfare. Economic growth continues apace today, with a far greater range of commercial enterprises. 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 commonplace as emails, yet just as revolutionary in their heyday.
