A whitewood, painted, octagonal cribbage board with an applied print of Margate Harbour Arm. A paper label 'From Bettison's Margate Library' is on the base.

Circa 1820

Margate Harbour had been rebuilt after a storm in 1808 under the auspices of the eminent engineer, John Rennie. The harbour provided a point of disembarkation for passengers from London.

 Bettison's Margate Library was arguably the finest library ever built at a seaside resort. In 1820 Bettison's was generally filled with people of rank and fashion, who attended music recitals, played cards and also shopped for souvenirs.
