Event Summary

An exhibition featuring highlights from the Manx Press Pictures archive held at Manx National Heritage. Manx Press Pictures, operating out of Prospect Hill, was owned and run by Bill Peters. Bill and his team were contracted to supply press pictures for both the Isle of Man Examiner and the Isle of Man Times. From 1956 to 1980 they photographed thousands of events on the Isle of Man, anything from Tynwald Day, sporting events, visiting celebrities, news and social events to weddings. From the thousands of Manx Press Pictures photographic negatives, one thousand have been selected and digitised for the years 1956 – 1979. They give a ‘snap shot’ of events which took place from May to September, months often referred to on the Isle of Man as ‘the season’.
