Fireworks over Douglas, capital of Isle of Man

Douglas is the capital and largest town of the Isle of Man, with a population of about 29,000 people.

On the right you see part of the interior of the Gaiety Theatre & Opera House. The memorial stone is in honor of Sir William Hillary. He led the movement to form The National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck in 1824.
Part of a set of 10 stamps to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Manx designer Archibald Knox. He was an internationally renowned artist and designer. 

Wishing you all a happy 2015!
