The Falls: The People, The Community, The Memories


Vincent Dargan is a street photographer from the Lower Falls. From the mid-1960s, he took photographs of his local area featuring his neighbours, the tradesmen, the shops, the houses...the lives of the ordinary people. This book is an unparalleled collection of more than 150 images of this politically and culturally significant area of the city at a time of great change and conflict. From the playground on the roof of Slate Street school, children with their Easter baskets, and prams parked in the streets, to the Free Belfast barricades, the shebeens and the local characters, this is an unmissable, unique and fascinating look back at how we used to live.
