Product description

In 1911 Ireland was on the cusp of a dramatic decade. The changes would come fast and hard: the 1913 Lockout, the Great War, the 1916 Rising, Civil War and independence. Dublin 1911 is the first book of its kind, a richly illustrated, kaleidoscopic chronicle of that year, published 100 years on. Through previously unpublished photographs, illustrations, advertisements, news clippings and fold-out census reports it allows the reader to flick through and experience the Dublin of 1911. Accompanying thematic essays on subjects as diverse as George V's visit, transport, poverty, social life, suffragism and fashion are accessibly written by leading scholars. This beautiful book is edited by archivist Catriona Crowe.
