Dozens of beautiful photgraphs of the landscape and architecture of the North Coast ranging from Banagher Glen to Murlough feature in ‘The North: Now and Then’ a new book compiled by Maurice Bradley.
Published by Causeway Press it’s billed a treasure trove of the last hundred years and more of the Causeway Coast.
It features many memorable photographs, old and new, of the westernmost reaches of the coast, including the wonderful old photograph of Irish Green Street, Limavady, (above) and the snaps of Banagher, Benbradagh and Drenagh (below).
“This unique blend containing a pictorial black and white record of the days of the steamships sailing into Coleraine Harbour with the glorious colour of present day activities on both land and sea offer an incredible insight into one of the most beautiful and historic parts of Western Europe,” says the publisher.
“Whether it is recalling idyllic days on the beach at Portrush or watching the ponies at play on Benbradagh this publication will be sought after by young and old alike.
“Maurice Bradley, has compiled a visual feast from the archives of the Coleraine Chronicle for you to enjoy.
“Few other landscapes can compete with what is on offer here, world famous heritage sites, family resorts known far and wide and a history going back centuries.
“Maurice who has been with the Northern Constitution and Coleraine Chronicle since 1969 has begun to mine the depths of the archive material that has accumulated over those years,” the publisher adds.
Great idea for a Christmas stocking-filler.
