  Peel: past & present
 
  Books offering a peek into what
a place looked like a century ago are always popular, particularly if there
is are also photographs of its appearance today. Peel: past & present offers some startling comparisons.
 
  Peel is one of the oldest towns on
the Isle of Man, its history bound
up with the sea. Fishing shaped the town, with almost every inhabitant not only from the town but also from the surrounding area having some connexion with the industry. Even today Peel boasts the largest fishing fleet in the Irish Sea.
 
  But the story doesnít end there.
When holidaymakers discovered
the Isle of Man, Peelís majestic castle, picturesque winding streets and bustling port drew fascinated visitors. The old photographs in this book are drawn from the postcards such visitors sent home.
 
  Much has changed, of course, but itís often surprising just how much has remained the same.  
  Peel: past & present joins its sister publication Port Erin: past & present in offering a fascinating glimpse into the Isle of Manís past.
