On this day: a family portrait at the end of a war

The Hughes family of 129 Railway Street, Armagh, Northern Ireland pose in military-style clothing on the 19th of July, 1945. Less than a month later VJ Day (the surrender of Japan) occurred, effectively ending the Second World War.

The extensive archives of photographers H. Allison & Co., based in County Armagh, are now available through Wikimedia Commons.

    Hi that was the Lynas Family that lived at 129 Railway Street. The Bride and Groom were my in-laws! Great photo thank you.
