The image gallery of the Bureau of Military History

The gallery contains approximately 400 photographs that were submitted to the Bureau of Military History (BMH). Many are instantly recognisable and some of the images, such as the aerial shots of the 1916 Rising sites, were taken in the early 1950s by the Air Corps. The gallery index includes short descriptions of groups of photographs from some of the contributors.
