Manx Nostalgia


Recommended Posts

It's great isn't it? I've found some photos relevant to my family that I never knew existed.

 

I have quite an archive which I'll get scanned in once I have moved back to England.

Indeed - growing up in the 60's and 70's on the IOM was a very pleasant experience.

I regularly go on Manx Nostalgia.

 

It's the only reason I bother to go on facebook.

There was a brilliant photo of Quarterbridge Road looking up towards Bray Hill, only one house on the main road. I love looking at all the old photos, even those in the not so distant past.

It's really really good, I found some utterly fantastic bits on there. For example, I didn't know the old swimming pool come bowling alley actually used to be bowling alley originally!

Not being a Facebook follower either, I'll have a look so thanks for the info.

Maybe speak on 2m/70cms, next visit to IOM? Take it your call sign goes back a bit? Has something of 'nostalgia' in the GD4?

What's the chat channel by the way?

Looks like I've sold my place in Switzerland, next stop is probably Cornwall, not the rock, but we'll see next week.
