This new collection of photographs illustrates the development of the town of Banbridge and its people through a period of industrial growth in the late nineteenth century up to the varied changes of recent times. There are scenes of the linen industry (the town's most important manufacturing activity), the ropeworks (the oldest in Ireland), and the railway. The book features many of the major influences on the social life of this community, such as the churches, the temperance movement, and the war years. Several local 'characters' make their appearances as well as a selection of Banbridge's famous sons. Major events are also covered in excellent details.
