Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Sixty years of Irish history including 2.6 million negatives and key events in Ireland such as the arrival of the Beatles, Princess Grace, Muhammad Ali and John F Kennedy has been preserved by a Dublin photo agency.
Lensmen Press and Public Relations Photographic Agency was set up in Dublin in 1952 by Andy Farren and Padraig MacBrien. In 1995, Susan Kennedy took over the business and the archive.
The sixty years of Irish history captured there includes many fascinating images of key events: The Beatles, Princess Grace, Muhammad Ali and John F. Kennedy all visited, many Presidents were inaugurated and many Football and Hurling finals were won and lost.
