The foreword sums up what this book offers: “The unique collection of photographs and articles, some generously loaned from private collections, span 100 years of the life and times showing Omagh and District citizens at work and play.”
The photographs in this book are of particular interest, for example early motoring, the UVF in 1914, railways, church matters and the Orange Order, recreation activities and family histories. There is a wealth of detail and information about the District, its families, and its history. It will therefore be of particular interest to anyone familiar with the area, or who is interested in the area, or who missed the opportunity to add this book to their collection when it was first published.
