Derry Journal – The Lost Archives II £14.95

Compiled by Sean McLaughlin

Derry Journal: The Lost Archives II is the eagerly awaited second volume of photographs from the amazing archives of Ireland’s second-oldest newspaper. As with its best-selling predecessor, this new book is jam-packed full of images that will speak volumes to lovers of Derry and its vanished past. Forgotten in the vaults of the Derry Journal for many years, scores of these images have never been published before.

A remarkable window into a bygone age, these wonderful black-and-white pictures of Derry and its people reveal a city lost in time, a city that looks hauntingly familiar, but one that many of us have never seen before. This amazing collection of images depict Derry and the North West on the cusp of transition and evoke an almost tangible sense of street life. But this is more than nostalgia: it is an important piece of social history that transports you to the very heart of our past. These new photos are as close to a time-travelling virtual-reality tour of Derry in the 1950s and 1960s as you could hope for.

This new book is a splendid companion piece to that other feast of the past – Derry Journal: The Lost Archives, which, in 2012, proved a popular hit with book lovers. The Derry Journal’s photo archive is, without doubt, the finest visual history of twentieth-century Derry in existence.
