Marxist Margate

Margate, Kent, UK

Karl Marx, author of “Das Kapital” & “The Communist Manifesto,” spent a convalescence in Margate in April 1866. Staying at the King’s Arms, his holiday seems to have been particularly beneficial and his letters speak enthusiastically of the ‘delicious’ sea-bathes, the ‘wonderful air’ and vigorous long walks.
