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.

Its a splendid doorcase for a pub. Was the pub equally as grand?
I have a feeling the pub wasn’t so grand Eleanor, but if someone knows better please let us know 🙂
Eleanor I have just added a link in the page to show the original door case when it was in situ at the pub.
Thank you Peter. As you say not a particularly splendid pub from teh outside. I love the old photos
I didn´t realized Manx Museum had such an incredible “back door”. I always left through front door… And I would bet through back doors i´d walk shorter way to that pedestritian street (Post office, Charities Shops, M&S…) and promenade… !!
