Over the course of 100 years, the Isle of Man developed from a collection of fishing villages into one of the main holiday destinations for people working in the Lancashire mills and coal mines. Hotels and other holiday accommodation were built and developed during the late Victorian era and people travelled to the Island by steamer from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. This influx of holiday makers brought great prosperity to the Island, which was also boosted by the annual TT motorcycle races. Illustrated with over 150 archive images, this collection of photographs and postcards provides a nostalgic insight into the changing history of the Isle of Man over the last century. Each image is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life and describing many aspects of life on the Island, including work, recreation and leisure. This book will appeal to everyone with an interest in the history of the Isle of Man, and also awaken memories of a bygone time for those who worked, lived or have ever visited the more
