Old Photographs of Donegal
These photographs have come from a number of sources - some from the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Art Today, some from old books and photographs I purchased myself, and other sources. I am not aware of any copywrite restrictions on any of them, but where the photograph is offered for sale by a business, I have given the full contact details.
