Warehouse Wednesday: Newsons on the quay

Greetings from the Isle of Man!

This week we have something I believe was really a warehouse, right on Douglas quayside.

In the years I've known the building it has been operated as a retail establishment, the sort that sells "workwear" for roughty-toughty types, and me once when I needed a sweatshirt while on holiday.

An odd place to open a shop, the place being split in two by the loading bay. It's best remembered by listeners to Manx FM for their regular adverts inviting listeners to visit "Newsons on the quay"

The building is quite thin and even less distinguished when you look around the back. It must be some age though from the stone construction.

Newson still trade, but have just moved to the centre of Douglas. The online store still shows the quayside shop in operation.
