Isle of Man coast, and gateway to Highlands
A panoramic view of the coast of the Isle of Man photographed from Cumbria (Cumberland) at a point over 40 miles away, which was taken by means of infra-red plate and filter and a long-focus lens - the Irish Sea given the appearance of a great lake! The photograph was taken from a point south-west of Wast Water, Cumbria. The greater part of the eastern coast of the Isle of Man is shown, from a point near Ramsey to the low-lying land in the southerly part of the island. At the bottom is another infra-red photograph of the gateway to the Highlands (Rob Roy country), taken from the Wallace Monument at Stirling, Scotland. Date: 1932
