Product description

What was it like to live in Dublin in 1911? Who lived there? What work did they do? What big events happened that had everyone talking? How did the people get around? What did everyone read? Did religion play a big part of life? What did people do for fun? *** 100 years ago, Dublin, Ireland was on the cusp of a dramatic decade. Little did Dubliners know of the changes that were coming: the lockout, the war, the 1916 rising, and independence. This book takes a look at Dublin during 1911, working through the year's events to explore themes such as poverty, health, the flight to the suburbs, leisure, and transport. Based on research carried out by the Royal Irish Academy and the National Archives of Ireland, the book also contains rich illustrations, fold-out census reports, and previously unpublished photographs. "The editor Catriona Crowe and the designer Fidelma Slattery have made 'Dublin 1911' irresistible." Lucy McDiamid, Times Literary Supplement May 11 2012 no. 5693
