Quite a topical subject at present as it is facing possible closure along with Ramsey Post Office.

Will it stay or will it go?

Who remembers these Pubs on North Quay as part of the Barbary Coast?

The Clarendon and Isle of Man Farmers on the right hand side have recently been demolished and rebuilt, they will soon be back as a Pub with offices above.

The former Douglas Hotel on the left has been refurbished and that apparently will be a shop with flats above.

Steeped in rich Manx history with lots of very famous owners and now about to be sold for development as an educational and training facility specialising in I/T.

What will be getting sold next? The family silver maybe!!

The Saddle Stone from which this road takes its name, is by the roadside right next to the Old Deemster’s Cottage. The stone has stood there for at least two centuries

The famous ‘Saddle” wishing stone according to old Manx legend is ridden every night by the fairies.

Today people sit on this “Saddle” and make a wish.

The aedicule (doorcase) came from the Market Inn Pub in Chapel lane in Douglas and was preserved by erecting it at the bottom of Crellins Hill which is the bottom entrance to the Manx Museum.

Click Here to see the aedicule when it was still in situ at the Market Inn.

The bus, a rare Leyland Comet, registration KMN 519 and new to Douglas Corporation in 1950, it was withdrawn from service in 1968, purchased by builders Parkinsons for staff transport then withdrawn by the company in 1979.

It is seen here after a full restoration by a UK collector outside the Jurby Transport Museum.

A bit of a breeze blowing up on Douglas Head this afternoon and I just couldn’t resist this one of the Manannan backing in to her Berth.

Coupled with the Gorgeous WW1 commemorative display of poppies on Douglas Head now in full bloom which is a total credit to Douglas Corporation Gardening Department for such a fantastic display up on Douglas Head.

Another one of my Street Photography efforts, this time on North Quay in Douglas.

The Newson Trading Co Ltd property on the right is probably one of the few surviving oldest buildings in Douglas that are still standing.
