We are managed and run by volunteers, and rely on Museum visitors, membership subscriptions, sales of our publications and donations for our income, so these are difficult times for us.  If you would like to support us please think about joining the Society (click the button below for more information) .

The spectacular sight of Ventnor's ascending terraces in the early 1890s, as viewed from the pierhead.

Machines were hired along with an attendant and a costume, the ladies segregated at some distance from the gentlemen.
