A house on South Quay, Douglas

Date(s): 1940

Creator(s): Frowde, John James

Scope & Content: On the back of this photograph Frowde writes, 'This is doubtful. See Times cutting in which I think Mr. M. Hampton definitely assured the reporter that Holmes Bk was next door (back to back) to his shop on the Quayside, and I read somewhere else that Jimmy's own house was next door in the terrace facing the sea. From 20 print (Fred Leach). Had film done for him. Alter statement, where made, that Holmes Bank was on the Quay next to Moses Hampton's. The latter was about 90 when he died some 10 years ago Now 1940. Holmes Bank at rear. Jimmy lived in the end house next the Bank, end of the terrace of back to back houses at right angles to the Bank. Statement of Moses Hampton whose shop was on the Quayside in this terrace'.

Photo was printed in 1940, but from a negative that was taken many years before, before the demolition of Woodhouse Terrace which is cleared by 1932.
