Newbridge Local History Group launched the Newbridge 200 Vintage Photograpic Exhibition 1880-1920 at Newbridge Credit Union last Thursday.

The images, which come from the Laurence Eason and Valentine Collections courtesy of National Libary Ireland, show a tale of days gone by with pictures dating back as far as the 1800’s.

“The exhibition was organised by the local history group,” said Cllr Damian Molyneaux who is also a member of the group. “We bought the rights to use the images from the National Library with a donation from Newbridge 200 and some of our own money. We now have a 16-month calender for sale and some of the images are on the calender to commemorate Newbridge 200. The calender is available locally at a cost of E10.”
