Professional photographer and author Ray Kelly began his photographic recording of Manx Tholtans some thirty years ago with the aim of catching the delicate ruins of old Manx farm and Industrial residences. Ray began recording the buildings after he observed how quickly the ruins would decrease and felt he needed to produce a record of them as they stand today prior to they disappear permanently.

The appeal of these remarkable buildings is recorded perfectly in this stamp collection which pays homage to Ray's exceptional work and offers a peek into the Island's rural history.

This genuinely charming collectable is complemented with a filler card featuring text written by Ray Kelly, providing historic info behind the distinct Tholtans which grace the Manx landscape. A should need to include beauty and interesting material to your collection.
