Belfast Telegraph Collection

Belfast Telegraph Collection

This collection of around 1500 images was acquired by the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in the early 1970s. The dates stretch from the 1920s until 1960s. The subjects cover general street views, significant buildings, hospital procedures, education practices and the war effort in the 1940s. There are also aerial photos of Belfast and most provincial towns in the north of Ireland in the 1930s.
