LOST IRELAND, 1860-1960. William Derham. Welcome Rain Publishers, New York, 2016. 368 pp. with 856 ills. 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781566493154 In English.
Publisher's description: Lost Ireland: 1860-1960 presents a panoramic sweep of Ireland's forgotten built heritage. From war and insurrection, to prosperity and development, the changes wrought by history have meant that a whole swathe of our built past no longer survives, save through the magic of the camera lens. Drawing on a variety of photographic archives, this book offers a wide sample of what was lost to these changes: the humble mud huts of the transient laborer, and the 'thatched mansions' of the prosperous farmer; the edifices of industrial innovation and technology; the grand homes of the well-to-do, including the infamous 'big house'. Organized by county, Lost Ireland reveals a layer of Irish history which is both fascinating and nostalgic, not just in its 'bricks and mortar' but also in the events and the people who inhabited those settings.
