Hi John

The article below was in a 1988 issue of the IOMFHS journal. If you write to the editor, Priscilla Lewthwaite, she'll tell you whether no 34 is an actual photo of Mr Moor, photographer, or just an unlabelled photo taken in a Moor studio. Priscilla is very helpful.

COLLECTORS CORNER No. 3
On a recent visit to Jurby Junk, I purchased a quantity of old Victorian photographs all in very good condition, taken on the Island about the 1870ís to 1880ís. All the photographs had obviously come from one collection and all carried information on the back, in the case of married women their maiden name was given, some of the men had either the parish, occupation or farm name given. By searching the 1861 and 1871 census for Malew and Santon I have been able to trace these families and have more information on them. Those in Malew lived In the village of Ballasalla, copies can be obtained of any of these if expenses are covered.
