As a port city, Dublin owes much to the labourers who strove against the heavy-duty tide of imports and exports; a league of thousands who were hired on a day-to-day basis for generations, defining both the landscape and activity in Dublin’s city center and the urban industrial working-class in Ireland. These were the dockers and stevedores of Dublin Port, and this is their history, brought to life through this sumptuously illustrated, social history that defines their importance as an industrial subculture within the Dublin they navigated. Beautifully designed and illustrated throughout, the authors mined the archive of the Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society to discover a wealth of photographs that capture the dockers arduous labour, spanning the mid-nineteenth century to the 1970s. These stunning and evocative images bring this social history to life, complementing the inimitable voices revealed in interviews with the dockers themselves. How they negotiated daily hours and pay, the changes that came with epochal events-the Dublin Lockout, the First World War, the Easter Rising and War of Independence-and the innumerable myths and “dark stories” that shrouded their image, are all revealed in The Dublin Docker, beautifully presented by distinguished historians, Aileen O’Carroll and Don Bennett.
