Port Erin 2012 – ten years on
Port Erin is the third place on the Island to be revisited to examine changes over the last decade.
Businesses: Please submit details of your business now.
Following on from Peel 2011: Ten years on, we’re delighted to announce we have given the “ten years on” treatment to the village of Port Erin.
Once again we are grateful to Culture Vannin, and Port Erin Commissioners, and new supporters Port Erin Traders/Visit Port Erin and Chrystals who financed the project. Port Erin Commissioners said: “we were delighted to be part of the project capturing the village’s businesses ten years on. It has been fantastic to see many new businesses having established themselves in Port Erin alongside other amazing local businesses which have been trading within Port Erin for many years prior to the initial project in 2012”.
Fieldwork took place at the beginning of August 2022.
Almost 1/3 of photographed businesses are new in the last ten years
The brave ones
In most cases I photographed different people to represent the businesses to those in 2012. But for over 20% of all organisations I had the privilege to photograph the same people, much more than in other towns. Special thanks go to those brave people who agreed to be photographed for a second time.
4 businesses had moved premises in the ten year gap.
Business as Usual…
For the majority of businesses and organisations, it was the same business in the same location, with the same or similar business activity over the ten year period, although in most cases new people were photographed.
Gone but not forgotten…
There were very few vacant premises in Port Erin at the time of the survey.
