Douglas Harbour

Took this image of Douglas Harbour from the Steam-Packet vessel Manannan whilst waiting to go to Liverpool. It was a beautiful calm morning, this was taken at 7am on a sunny, summers day in July. You can see to the left of the image the famous Camera Obscura, and in the middle near the top of the image is the Manx Radio building.

This is the famous Camera Obscura on Douglas Head. There is no power involved in making it work, its all done using 11 lenses which gives 11 moving colour pictures of the surrounding headland. It was opened in the 1890’s and was once considered a popular form of fun and entertainment.
