By the smoke of the train

Dunmanway Day Care Centre

“As much had been written about the history of the West Cork Railway already, my aim for this project was to make a collection of people’s stories and experiences of the railway during the 1940s and 1950s, and to illustrate some with the participants’ own drawings and paintings.”  Participants took photographs of each others faces.  These photos were reduced in size and were placed at the windows of the train as it appears in the book of stories.
