Manx National Heritage has added more than 900 photographs to the iMuseum which show the trials and tribulations of Manx transport.

The images from the photographic archive have been digitised and show some of the most significant events that happened in the air and on land.

Photographs show the visit of the first aeroplane in 1911, the first air balloon crossing from the Island to Britain and the first motorcar in 1899.

There are also images of a train crash at Douglas Station in 1925 which killed a fireman.

Hannah Gerrard from the Manx Museum told us more:
