Beautiful Christmas Gifts

Beautiful Christmas Gifts

If you are looking for a special gift this Christmas, we have 2 great
suggestions.

The Ulster Historical Foundation has just published Linen Houses of County Antrim and North County Down, and a reprint of Linen Houses of the Bann Valley (first
produced in 2007).

These books are beautifully produced, lavishly illustrated and tell the
story of the linen manufacturers and merchants who built for themselves
such exquisite houses across Ulster.

The books explore the architectural details of the homes as well as the
life of the families who lived in them, and the business empires they
created which at one point made the Ulster linen industry the envy of the
world.

Priced at only 24.99 plus P&P, either, or both, would make an ideal gift
for a loved one or friend interested in the wider history of Ulster.
