Our Past in Photographs


In the Ulster Museum, there is a gallery displaying photgraphs, mostly taken by photojournalists, documenting our troubled past and how life went on in spite of the Troubles.

Some of my favourite photos of characters you'd only find in Belfast in the 70's!

Putting their lives on the line, literally...

  1. Remember those times from When I was young, one of the reasons I have never been back to Southern Ireland or my relations in Cavan. Now I'd like to visit sometime

  5. Making the past into art so no one will forget. This is wonderful!!! The images are so striking. They are really pictures of all of us, just trying to make it through life. But these just have something about them...both a mournfulness and a strong spirit! I adore this lady with the umbrella!
