Around the Banks of Pimlico

£9.99

Product description

Around the Banks of Pimlico
Máirín Johnston
Attic Press, Dublin, 1985.
Soft-bound; 170 x 240 mm; 135 pages plus unpaginated advertisements. No dust jacket. Forty-one monochrome illustrations.
The book is in good condition. The binding is sound and tight. The front cover is slightly bowed outwards with a crease at the top corner. There is a large faded label on the bottom of the back cover. There is very minor foxing of the top edge page ends. The covers are slightly tanned internally. The fly title has a stamp: PAULA COONERTY.
Though the main emphasis of this book is a social history of the Pimlico section of Dublin, it also includes the family history of four generations of the author's family who resided in Pimlico. Her family tree is included. The book is a fascinating and delightful account of life in the Liberties over a period of 100 years, 1850-1950s. After the famine in 1845, Máirín Johnston’s great great grandmother moved to Pimlico from Gort, and four generations later the author compares what Pimlico was then with what it was when her mother left a century later.
The book is likely to appeal to those with a range of interests, historical, social, cultural, etc as well as those with connections to the area.
