Drawing on the author’s extensive knowledge of photographic archives, this tour will explore some of the city's former sites of leisure, entertainment, and politics. The itinerary will include the site of the city’s last Turkish baths; the much vandalised statue of King William of Orange III, and the location of one of Ireland’s first telephone boxes.
