5.0 out of 5 stars

on June 27, 2014
Filled with charming and poignant photographs of an Ireland-Gone-By, present Ireland is informed by the times in which the North and the Republic were all one, when Irish people in the North, in Antrim and Down, traded with Scottish merchants and had a close bond, when great houses still prevailed, when the Titanic tragically went down to the bottom of the sea. This book documents early automobiles, railroads, wee children (socks don't match, the universality of ice cream, going to school, Confirmation, gathering seashells in Newcastle), proximity to the sea, prehistoric forts, even a Town Crier. Useful for the diaspora and for the Irish themselves, Father Browne's documentation captures what is eternal (the sea, the mountains) and what is transient (shooting marbles, playing hop scotch) and maybe even the in-between (shopping on Grafton Street). Buy this if you love Ireland.

This is a fantastic collection of photographs from ireland taken in the early 1900s to 1950. it has pictures from every county in ireland from times gone by.they are pictures of everyday life, and would be of great interest to photographers and historians alike. its the kind of book that you can pick up at any time and find something new in every picture. some of the scenes are long since gone while others are in existance to this day. i am very happy with this book and have since bought more books by the same photographer. i would recommend it to anybody who is interested in black and white pictures of life in ireland. ten out of ten.
