More About This Title Sandymount In Old Photographs


Sandymount is a comparative newcomer in terms of Dublin suburbs, since it only started to develop in the mid-nineteenth century, after the arrival of the railway from Westland Row to Kingstown. Despite that comparatively recent start, it has become a very distinctive place with a strong village atmosphere. Local historian and author Hugh Oram explores its history in this collection of over 200 archive images. Accompanied by detailed and informative captions, each page captures life in the area as it once was and is now, providing a vital record of the changing face of Sandymount.


Hugh Oram is a writer, historian, and book reviewer and is a regular columnist with Books Ireland. His previously published books include Ballsbridge Then & Now, The Little Book of Ballsbridge, and Dundrum Then & Now.
