Manx Tholtans Volume 2 by Ray Kelly
Published 7 October 2017
In this second photographic essay, photographer and local historian Ray Kelly revisits more hidden ‘Tholtans’ (a Manx word describing the ruins of old homes). This new work is further complemented by some of the author’s colourful retelling of local stories and fables. The author’s passion for his subject matter shines through as these incredibly photogenic buildings, most of which are well off the beaten track, offer a glimpse of genuine Manx culture and heritage from times that are fast disappearing into history.
