Selection of Pictures: Northern Ireland 1980's

"Children burn tyre and block Flying Horse Road, Downpatrick, Co. Down, anniversary of internment (1980's)"




  Boy wears "Proud to be a Prod" t-shirt, East Belfast (1980's)

Co. Derry farmer takes his wife shopping on the tractor bucket (1980's)


I was struck by these images, particularly the kids posing in front of the burn out vehicles.  They could as well been posing at the football field or playground.
