I’ve just spent a wonderful week in the Isle of Man photographing the shops and businesses in Laxey and Port Erin. I think there were only 6 refusals out of 160 businesses in the two villages, which is an excellent result. Thanks to all the friendly and patient people I met and who stood for photographs. By the end of September there will be ten year comparisons for both villages (plus Peel, already there) on www.manxshopfronts.com.
Thanks go to Culture Vannin, Garff Commissioners, Port Erin Commissioners, Port Erin Traders/ Visit Port Erin, and Chrystals Estate Agents for funding the project!
