Dublin Street Life and Lore: An Oral History
Glendale, 1991 - 245 pagina's
The first half of this century was the heyday of Dublin’s vibrant and bustling traditional street life. Now in Dublin’s Street Life and Lore, through the vivid oral histories of the participants themselves, Professor Kevin Kearns chronicles this rich street life and lore for future generations. The fascinating and often poignant verbal testimonies of Dublin’s last surviving tram drivers, lamplighters, market traders, street dealers, spielers, buskers, local characters and others of their vanishing breed, comprise a wholly original and captivating personal historical record of Dublin’s long renowned street life, told in Professor Kearns’s uniquely engaging and informative style.
