A pictorial record of the 20th century in Belfast. Decade by decade, the great events are captured in photographs - the home rule crisis, the launch of the "Titantic", the Great War, the upheavals of the 1920s and the establishment of a seperate parliament for Northern Ireland, the Hungry Thirties and the growth of aircraft production at Shorts, World War II and the catastrophic blitz of 1941, the "Princess Victoria" tragedy of 1953, the launch of the "Canberra", the first civil rights agitation, the outbreak of the ferocious conflict that was to last 30 years and the euphoria of the Good Friday Agreement of 1998. This book is also about the ordinary day-to-day experience of living in Belfast down the years - the cinemas and theatres, the great department stores, fashion and sport, schools and churches, the dances and the pubs - as well as the high days and holidays, the picnics on Cave Hill and the trips on the famous Bangor boat.
