Local history researcher, Mark Lusby, will give a talk at Derry’s Central Library on Monday evening (June 29) during which he will discuss a variety of topics as diverse as the historic City Walls and the US Navy in Derry in WWII.
Mark’s talk, which will start at 7 p.m., will be illustrated with photographs and documents sourced from archives near and far.
The event at the Foyle Street venue is an initiative of Friends of the Derry Walls and Libraries NI and is designed to promote greater awareness of the value of archives to understanding the city we live in today.
Mark will draw on archive material on topics ranging from the construction of the Derry Walls; agriculture in Derry between the Wars; and the legacy of the US Navy and Marines in Derry during the Second World War.
The event is free and seats will be allocated on a first come basis.
