Old Photos & Films

on Wed Jan 17, 2018 3:24 am
Whenever we see old photos they are usually posed and it doesn`t give us a true representation of the past. These photos show everyday life, which proves in a lot of ways that our forebears were no different than we are in so many ways.

This is relatively recent (1927--1930) but a joy to behold:

Undated handout photo issued by the Department of Culture, Arts & Leisure of forgotten images of Lawrence of Arabia which have been discovered at PRONI. Lawrence is third right.

This is brilliant. The sad part is that so many of the buildings in the footage were destroyed in the Nazi bombing raid of 14 May 1940 and no doubt many of the people in it died during the terrible war years.

Glad you enjoyed the old footage. It's an eye-opener all the time for any city!
