Artist's Description

Grand Union Camera Obscura

Number of views as of 6th April 2016 = 800.

The Grand Union Camera Obscura is an unusual building perched on the side of the cliff at Douglas Head, Isle of Man.

Unlike other Cameras Obscura, this one was built purely as a tourist attraction rather than for astronomical purposes.

Using light and mirrors it reflects images of the surrounding area onto large white screens within the dark confines of the building. It provides the observer with spectacular views of Douglas.

Built in 1887, when the Isle of Man was a very popular Victorian tourist destination. Recently restored, the attraction is open to visitors most weekends.

Date: 26th July 2009.
