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.
