Douglas

Isle of Man Bank 2 Athol Street, Douglas.

The Banking Hall has a magnificent domed stained glass window which depicts many Isle of Man iconic scenes, which I understand represents each location on the Island where the Isle of Man Bank had premises in.

You don’t often see work like this nowadays.

I just loved the olde world look of this image which is at the Back Marina Road or the rear of the Gaiety Theatre in Douglas.

Reminds me of an old Downtown in New York type shot but in our beloved back streets of Douglas.

The French cruise liner the L’Austral seen here sat in Douglas Bay late this afternoon.

Built in 2011, she carries 264 passengers and 140 crew and measures 142 metres long.

Next stop Iona in Scotland.

The Gaiety Theatre on Harris Promenade in Douglas, originally built as the Marine Pavillion for dancing. it was later extended and the interior was completely transformed by Frank Matcham the eminent theatre architect. The opening of the Gaiety Theatre took place in July 1900. Despite the difficulties of the tourist industry, it remains one of the finest Victorian/Edwardian theatres in existence, thanks to a programme of preservation and restoration by the Isle of Man Government and The Friends of the Gaiety.
