  pic from Ramsey: past & present  
  Ramsey: past & present
 
  By Ray Stanfield  
  With Ramsey Bay offering a safe
haven to shipping, and the Sulby
River creating a usable harbour,
Ramsey grew to serve the needs of
the seafaring community.
 
  It is the most low-lying town on the
Isle of Man and the one considered
most at risk from overtopping.
Occasionally the sea invades the
town and Ramsey locals, as their
predecessors have done for
centuries, pay the price for their
proximity to the waves.
 
  One hundred years ago fishermen
offered their wares at the quayside,
children played in the sea and streets
of the old town, and tourists landed
by steamer on the iron pier.
 
  But Ramsey has changed. In the
1960s and ‘70s much of the oldest
part of the town was swept away
by developers. Only photographs
and postcards such as those in
this book can now show us parts of
Ramsey’s past.
 
  We’re getting something of reputation
for these past and present books.
Ramsey joins, Castletown, Peel
and Port Erin in what has become
a series.
