Notes NOTES: 'Dreamland' was built as part of an amusement park for Margate Estates Co. Ltd. The original Dreamland Park was substantially destroyed by fire in 1932 and the opportunity was taken to extend and modernize the facilities to the designs of Leathart & Granger with interiors by Illes, and was completed in 1935.
