The Platform

One of the tourist information boards along with walls of Derry; this one describes the history of the area around the Presbyterian church and the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall, including George Farquhar and his play The Beaux’ Stratagem. The platform in question is not a viewing platform for Orange parades but a gun platform in the walls of Derry. Magazine Street Upper, Londonderry.

The People’s Gallery

The People’s Gallery is a series of murals by the Bogside Artists along Rossville Street and Lecky Road in Derry. Although the sign says there are 12 murals, at the time there were in fact only 11 (as this page at the official web site says), though a twelfth would be added in 2008. For images of all 12 murals, see the Gallery’s Visual History Page.
