There are several interesting photographs including a selection of photographs related to a protest campaign which had been launched to save the schools threatened with the axe. Teachers, parents and taxi drivers all joined the campaign to save from Dunlamber Boys’ and Somerdale Boys’ Secondary Schools.
Meanwhile there are also photographs of industry minister Adam Butler when he had travelled to Carrickfergus in Co Antrim in February 1982 to launch a job creation scheme. Mr Butler was told by the mayor of the town, Mayor Alderman Ken McFaul, that he was “unwelcome”. Mr McFaul was joined by six other loyalist councillors who accused Mr Butler of “selling out to the enemies of Ulster”.
See who you might see from days gone by.
