Douglas Bay from J. Moore's Howstrake

Date made: June 1894

Description: “The residence of the English is chiefly confined to [Douglas]; among whom are many officers on half pay, and gentlemen, as well as families of great respectability of small fortunes. There is also in Douglas many families of great respectability, and very considerable wealth, native inhabitants of the place, extensively engaged in mercantile pursuits.” (Nathaniel Jefferys, A Descriptive and Historical Account of the Isle of Man, 1809, M 00904)

The painting is from a series of works by Mrs Lucy Emma Lynam, born 1834. It is thought that Lucy Emma Lynam painted the works while staying with her daughter and son-in-law on the Isle of Man. Her daughter, also called Lucy Emma, married a Manxman Sidney Alfred Pizey Kermode, who was the Reverend of Onchan (1862-1925).
