Many aspects of Belfasts often turbulent history are covered- famous and infamous occasions and notable individuals are remembered- and the impact of national and international events is witnessed. The book provides a striking account of the changes that have so altered the citys appearance, and records the process of transformation. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community, and illustrated with a wealth of photographs chosen from the impressive collections of the National Museums and Galleries of Northern Ireland, this book recalls what Belfast has lost in terms of buildings, traditions, and ways of life. It also acknowledges the regeneration that has taken place and celebrates the character and energy of local people as they move through the first years of this new century.
