Local History Books and On-line Resources

Post by Micheál » Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:51 pm

Hi Forum,

I'm not quite sure where to post this so I'm setting up a new topic.

There's quite a few really good books out there. It occurs to me that it would be useful to hear people's recommendations. Of even greater interest, perhaps would be links to on-line books and "resources" (by which I mean primary material, content-rich sites etc).

So here's a start -
A history of the County Dublin, Francis Elrington Ball, 1902, Thom Dublin, (Part 1 of 4)
http://www.archive.org/stream/ahistoryc ... 8/mode/2up

Enjoy

M.

This is a fantastic idea, could be used as a reference forum for all sources of information concerning the locality,

Another (unlikely?) resource of interest - photographic gallery from - "Norn Iron" - Belfast Telegraph

Here Kingstown -

http://photosales.belfasttelegraph.co.u ... 2aTBtDw..a

Lots of other Dublin localities too.

Images are all watermarked but I suspect many are available elsewhere e.g. NLOI

Images of vanashing Dublin, brought to you by the local authority that oversees its disappearance.
Irony or obscenity?

Apologies if this is a little to far north for the forum. Nothing of major significance for the Borough but good dose of nostalgia.

great old photos of Dublin and articles
http://www.dublin.ie/forums/showthread. ... 0feaa46606

the site was closed down because of members repeatly over stepping the line
too many members got to know each other at nights out and slagging became very personal
photos of get togethers were posted and resulted in a lot of personal remarks re female and male members
hot and heavy dispite repeated warnings from the Admin

Thanks Grammer,

Well worth scrolling through. The shame is that Discussion Forums & Boards are terrific for promoting the discovery & sharing of this material but they are not the best tool for cataloguing & storing them.
