Chair

BELUM.W2011.1250

White painted kitchen chair belonging to Edward Cushnahan, Belfast. On the bottom of the seat of the chair are pasted two photocopied photographs of Cushnahan's coal cart and horse and family, dated 1910, the lower one inscribed ' This is horse and cart used by Edward Cushnahan for family coal business. It was also used to take a chair from his home 51 Pilot Street to Peel Street and Mary Street for James Connolly to stand on and make social and political speeches.' James Connolly often stood on this chair in order to address the Belfast public. Between 1911 and 1913, he lived in the west of the city, working as a labour organiser, standing as a candidate in municipal elections and striving for the creation of a unified Irish Labour Party.
