Balbriggan & District Historical Society is proud to announce a unique photographic exhibition of the people and places of Balbriggan taken in the year of 1893.
In 2016, the Society acquired a collection of photographs taken by Mr. Lewis Whyte, amateur photographer and Managing Director at Smyco factory on Railway Street. Many of the photographs were taken on a single day and capture the people and familiar places of our beloved town.
Since acquiring these photographs we have got them digitised and a selection of them printed. We feel that the conservation and exhibition of these albums is an important contribution by our Society to the cultural heritage of our town. To this end we are holding an exhibition in the Bracken Court Hotel on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th October and would be delighted to see you there.
So whether you are a real ‘Balbrigganer’ (in particular a Canty, Whyte or McCullough) or a ‘blow in’, come along to the Hamilton Suite, Bracken Court Hotel, Balbriggan.
This FREE exhibition will be launched at 8 p.m. on Friday 19th October, and will run on the next day (Saturday, 20th) between 12 and 6 p.m.
Looking forward to seeing you there and be sure to spread the word about this must see exhibition.
