Ulster circa 1961…


A real blast from the past in this piece about Northern Ireland from 1961 and aimed at the US investors. What’s most striking about it is the centrality of agriculture (though that appears to be the whole point of the pitch). That, and the apparent ubiquity of the Morris Minor. You can pick up part two here. Thanks for the heads up Steven!
