The Liberties by Maurice Curtis
Dublin is full of historic neighbourhoods, but none is more culturally and historically significant than The Liberties. In this book, author Maurice Curtis leads us on a tour of The Liberties, pointing out the places and people that have contributed to the neighbourhood s lasting legacy. The Liberties has some of the oldest streets in Dublin, dating back to the Middle Ages. It has seen both booming prosperity and devastating poverty, and the carefully selected historical photographs in this book showcase just how much the area has changed over time due to industry, immigration and modernisation. The commentary accompanying these photographs provides a fascinating glimpse into historic Dublin from one of Ireland s most avid social historians. If you’ve ever wondered what stories lie in the stone walls of Dublin s oldest storefronts and cathedrals, this is the book for you.
