Father Browne's Dublin: Photographs 1925-1950
1979 in stock
This collection by renowned photographer, Francis Browne SJ, portrays both the photographer’s vision and the city’s energy as it changes during the first half of the twentieth century.
Father Browne focuses on the people of Dublin, at work, at play and watching the world go by. This is a city of children, window shoppers, churchgoers, canals, bridges, trams and trains. Grand houses and tenements, middle classes and poor, industry and hospitals, all catch the photographer’s eye.
Father Browne’s Dublin is a treasure of images, a collection of outstanding photographs, full of wisdom, humour, nostalgia, artistry, information and record.
Both Dubliners and the many, many visitors to Ireland’s capital city will find here a collection that brings the Dublin of the last century back to life.
