Book Launch: Linen Houses of Antrim and N Down
The book provides an illustrated and informed commentary on the major linen families and their magnificent houses in County Antrim and north County Down. The images – exterior views of the actual houses, interior scenes of the stately rooms and portraits of their owners, many selected from private collections of the families themselves – present tantalising and poignant glimpses of a bygone age, when Belfast was justifiably known as ‘Linenopolis’.
The Guest Speaker at the launch will be Dr W H Crawford.
Advise the UHF if you're planning to attend.
You can order the book (£24.99) through BooksIreland.
