Steamship passage from the Isle of Man to Belfast

Date(s): 1931-1939

Creator(s): Royston, J. Walter

Scope & Content: On deck a steamship sailing from the Isle of Man to Belfast. Stormont, Belfast City Hall and Belfast Harbour.

The harbour and the high street in Port St Mary, Isle of Man, with glimpses of Chapel beach and the Bay Queen hotel. People enjoying the sun on Port Erin beach with views of Bradda Head and Milner's Tower. The view from Douglas Head overlooking Douglas lighthouse with steamships and ferries leaving Douglas Harbour. Injebreck and the top of West Baldwin.

Maughold cemetery with the grave to Manx novelist and playwright Hall Caine (1853-1931). The grave marker looks new and therefore likely the film was taken shortly after his death in 1931.

Film ends at Bishopscourt, north of Kirk Michael, which looks noticeably different then to how it does today.
