Figure 1.--We know nothing about these children, except that their portrait was taken in Douglas sometine before Wotld War I. We would guess about 1910.

The Isle of Man is located in the Irish Sea between England and Ireland. The island has been held by Norway (as a result of Viking raids), Scotland, and the earlys of Derby and Salisbury. I came under the control of the British Crown during the 1820s. The island has its own separate legislature. The inhabitants once spoke Manx, one of the Celtic languages. It is today little spoken. The capital is Douglas. The economy has traditionally been largely agrcultural with some guarying. The mild climate has helped to make tourism a major part of the economy.
