100 Years of Derry by Roy Hamilton, Hamilton Roy

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Inishowen mountains, Northern Irelands Derry has one of the most beautiful and panoramic locations of any Irish city, with its steep streets and steps rising high above the River Foyle. Dating from a small monastic settlement in the sixth century, its strategic position meant that by Elizabethan times it was a fortress city. All of this has given it and its people a unique, robust identity, and in this handsome book, that identity, in all its variousness, is faithfully reflected in 150 photographs. Accompanied by lively; informative captions and text, and arranged by decade, the photos depict emigrant ships leaving for America, hiring fairs, the First World War, the depression, the Second World War (when Derry welcomed American troops and saw the surrender of a U-boat), visiting showbands, civil rights agitation and the outbreak of the Troubles, and Bloody Sunday.
