This catalogue was produced to accompany an exhibition in the National Photographic Archive Gallery, Temple Bar and the Pearse House flats. Jeanette Lowe’s family were from the Pease Street area, and so this photobook takes the shape of both archival images from her family’s time there in the 1940s, as well as contemporary photographs of the current inhabitants.
