Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Bristol Steelchest, Nail in the Boot and the Barking Dog: The Belfast Shipyard: A Story of the People told by the People David Hammond, ed Flying Fox Films, Belfast, 1986. Hardback; 180 x 255 mm; green boards with gold titles on spine; 124 pages. Monochrome illustrations within text. Original unclipped dust jacket. Laid in a two page (A4) typescript of an unattributed poem The Diagonal Steam-Trap. The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. The dust jacket is a little grubby with minimal bumping and a little foxing internally. “The idea was simple. It was to tell the story of the Belfast shipyard - to let it be told by the men themselves. But how? The Queen’s Islanders are a tough, no nonsense breed, not given to romanticism. The answer was to encourage them to talk about what they know best – themselves and their work. Thus, through anecdote and shared experience, emerged a vivid self-portrait of the generations of men who have gone down to the shores of Belfast Lough to build ships.” See Oxfam website for delivery information
