Johnson's Guidebook of 1850 describes Laxey as a cluster of cottages down by the shore, with a dangerous, steep approach down from Fairy Cottage on the south side and Minorca on the north. Leech's Guide of 1861 shows a larger, bustling Laxey with a mining industry. Contemporary newspapers tell of the New Road, opened 28th February 1854, with its magnificent viaducts, giving travellers a view up to the Great Laxey Wheel.  

Our story is a Manx translation of an English translation from the original Spanish of Colombian writer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, about a dentist and a mayor.
