Gerald Clark (1913-2003)

Self portrait, Dreamland Cinema at No. 2 Machine
29/06/1954  

Gerald Clark was stationed in Italy and Egypt during World War 2. On his release from active service he returned to Margate and began working at the Dreamland Cinema as a projectionist.


As a passionate photographer he would often take his camera, a Zeiss Ikonta, to work. It is rumoured that he and his fellow workers set up a darkroom in an adjoining room to the projection box to develop and print their images; during work time of course.


Gerald had access to many areas of Dreamland and took the opportunity to capture many images that are being digitally restored.


His work has been exhibited at the opening of the Turner Contemporary, and featured on Sky News.


Prints and greeting cards of his work are available to purchase on-line and at The Cup-Cake Café, in Margate Old Town.


The online gallery will slowly evolve over time as more of his work is digitally restored. If you have any questions or comments on any of the images we would love to hear from you.
