South Quay

All posts tagged South Quay

This lovely old building stands on South Quay in Douglas right opposite the new lifting bridge.

The tower used to be the control tower for the former swing bridge where the bridge was hydraulically operated to swing it open.

Gas Works steps that lead from South Quay up to Fort William can also be seen to the left of the image.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 22mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

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.
