Isle of Man Nostalgia

Some general Isle of Man Nostalgia pictures.

This is not one of my normal Isle of Man Images but I thought it may be of interest to some!

I visited this grave today at Holy Trinity Church, in Kirk Patrick Village, hence the little flower.

This grave is that of the unknown man whose body was washed ashore on the coast close to the Church. The grave has a white marble curb and headstone which was provided by the generosity of Mrs Florrie Forde, who had a holiday beach cottage at the nearby Niarbyl.

The headstone bears the faded words ‘Some Mothers Son’

The cross bears the inscription – ‘British – Unidentified – Interred – 27th Feb 1918’.

And the wording on the marble surround at the front of the grave reads; ‘Erected by Florrie Forde 1927’.

Demolition work is due to start later today (Monday) on a building which holds memories for thousands.

Park Road School is to be demolished.

The school first opened in 1894 and was used until last July when it closed and was replaced by the new £34 million building at Bemahague in Onchan.

Work is expected to take a number of weeks.

Although a housing development has been mooted, no decision has been made on what the site will be used for.

Another old Manx building gone.
