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.

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!!

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.

Built circa 1895 on a site that was once the Mona Aerated Mineral Co.

The first alcohol licence was granted at the same time despite great opposition from the local women inhabitants of Douglas.

The total cost of the Hotel along with 3 houses and 2 shops was put at £6000.

This is the entrace to the Nunnery on the Old Castletown Road in Douglas, this gate house and the main Nunnery building are steeped in Manx history and is a fine example of a 13th century stately home.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
