Port Erin was selected to be the second town in the Isle of Man to be preserved for the future in an archive photography project.
Around 90 shops, businesses and organisations around the town were photographed and interviewed, and the results (over 300 photographs) will be preserved on this site and in the Manx Museum.
Photography took place on three sunny spring days on 26-28 March 2012. Thank you to all the businesses for giving up your time to be photographed and to answer the questions.
The project was led by Chris Littler Webdesign and archivephotography.co.uk, and funding was kindly provided by the Manx Heritage Foundation and Port Erin Commissioners.
Inspiration for these projects came from both old and new. The old being a handful of photographs of shopkeepers stood proudly outside their premises in days gone by. The new being a number of web-based projects to provide a photographic account of shop fronts in particular areas, notably London Shop Fronts.
