‘Derry Journal: The 1970s - A Decade in Focus’ is the eagerly-awaited third volume of photographs from the amazing archives of Ireland’s second oldest newspaper.
As with its best-selling predecessors - ‘Derry Journal: The Lost Archives I and II’ - this new book is jam-packed full of images that will appeal to those who love Derry and its past.
The book - a joint initiative from the Derry Journal and Guildhall Press - is filled with hundreds of beautifully reproduced black and white photographs of a city that looks hauntingly familiar but one that many of us have never seen before.
The photos in the new compilation are as close to a time-travelling virtual-reality tour of Derry in the 1970s as you could hope for.
In essence, the photos tell the remarkable story of a place and its people during the turbulent 1970s.
The images featured on these two pages are just a snapshot of the vast array of photos available in the ‘Derry Journal’ archives.
