Product Description

Bangor in the Sixties offers anyone who grew up in Bangor, or who regularly visited the Co. Down seaside town during that decade, a chance to take a nostalgic trip back to a time which, hard though it may be to believe, is approaching half a century ago.

While many might be tempted to sum up Bangor's Sixties in terms of wall-to-wall sunshine in the summer and snow piled high in the winter, with Pickie Pool, pop music and mini-skirts thrown in for good measure, as the 36 contributors and several hundred rarely seen photographs demonstrate, there was so much more happening during a decade of immense change.

From idyllic Saturday evenings spent on the sea wall at Queen's Parade, to the reality of the Troubles and how they started to impact on Bangor, it's all here. And while the book is unashamedly about the author's own home town, the memories it offers will relate to many other places during the Sixties.
