A book by East Londonderry MLA Maurice Bradley has aided Sandelford School in Coleraine.
Produced before Christmas, the book, “The North - Now and Then” is Maurice’s first.
It continues to sell well, with a beautiful combination of present day photographs of some of the most famous scenes in Northern Ireland with black and white scenes from years ago.
Last week, the MLA was joined at Sandelford School by MP Gregory Campbell and his wife Frances, as a cheque was handed over to the School as a result of the book’s sales.
MLA Bradley said: “Thanks to everyone who took the time to purchase the book, the entire proceeds are going to Sandelford School.
“We presented a cheque for £1,070 to Sandelford School which was good, but with a few books remaining, more money could be realised towards the fantastic work they do at the school.
“The book has been re-launched and is available at Waterstones Book Shop in Coleraine.
“I would like to thank the publishers, Causeway Press and also my MP, Gregory Campbell for his support in getting the book to print and distribution.”
Whether it is recalling idyllic days on the beach at Portrush, watching the ponies at play on Benbradagh, the magnificent Mussenden Temple, Coleraine harbour as you may never have known it, the book sought after by young and old alike.
Maurice has compiled a visual feast for you to enjoy.
Scenes include the world famous sites such as Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge - all captured in their magnificent glory, along with the former Killowen Distillery as well as Limavady’s Irish Green Street from the early part of the last century.
All those who have memories of holidays or excursions on the North Coast will want “The North - Now and Then”, priced at £8.99, is a captivating look at how things were, and still are, along one of the most scenic journeys anywhere in the world.
