Manx Myths, Mysteries and Miscellanies by Robert Kelly
Do you know what a Vitascope clock is? Or where you can find the remains of the Manx flax industry? Or what was the meaning behind Mabelreign? Robert Kelly does! Manx born and bred, Robert spent his entire life researching and writing about the Isle of Man, and amassed a huge fund of fascinating and little-known information. Sadly Robert died in 2018, but this collection of some of his unpublished work reminds us not only of his erudition and delight in detail, but also his love of the myriad stories which contribute to the identity of his homeland.
Whether he's writing about repurposing a concrete ship or the history of the Douglas mace, Robert Kelly writes with wit, individuality and style.
