Photographic Collection

North Strand Bombing Photographic Collection

Following the bombing, Dublin City Council (then called the Corporation) commissioned photographs of the damage to be used as evidence for the assessment of insurance claims. The work was entrusted to a local photographer, H. McCrae, of 152 Clontarf Road, who began work on 4 June and continued until the end of the month. Further photographs were taken in July and September, and the final photographs were taken on 31 October.

The 57 photographs in the North Strand Bombing Photographic Collection are housed in the Dublin City Library and Archive, 138-144 Pearse Street, Dublin 2.

The original photographs measure 28cm (width) x 20cm (height).

You can see all the photographs in the slideshow above and on flickr.
