Strand Street, Douglas bedecked with bunting and Union Jacks

Date(s): 1902

Creator(s): Cavanagh, William G.

Scope & Content: The occasion may have been either the end of the Boer War (which ended on 31 May 1902 and was celebrated in early June) or the coronation of Edward VII (9 August 1902).

For the former, thousands of people celebrated the peace in the streets of Douglas and rockets were fired from Victoria Pier. There were flags and bunting everywhere, schools were closed for the day, and workmen were given a half-day off.
