From the huddled terraces in the shadow of the twin spires of St. Peter's to the smart new red-brick homes of suburban West Belfast, a walk along the Falls Road is a journey from the past to the present. In this warmly affectionate tribute to the Falls of his boyhood, Robin Livingstone recalls the people and the places that made the area a byword for neighborliness and community spirit. In over 170 photographs and candid, personal text and captions, the road is recalled in all its aspects -- the narrow streets and corner shops, the recurring political upheavals, and the pubs and clubs, schools and churches that, through it all, held the fabric of the Falls together. Casting a nostalgic eye on the past -- the huge mills, the churches, music, cinemas, and sport -- Livingstone examines what has shaped the culture of the road and how it has changed over the years. There are harsher memories here too -- of civil unrest, pogroms, and riots as well as the radical redevelopment that disrupted the old back street communities in the 1960s and 1970s.
