I have always admired the architecture of this lovely “Old Douglas” building which was opened in 1898.

The building was designed by an architect called Armitage Rigby who also designed several houses at Little Switzerland and the cross shelters at Maughold and Kirk Michael (and other buildings).

The image was taken from South Quay and overlooking the Douglas Marina towards “The British”  and was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 38mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
