Ulster Girl

More artwork from the Crimea Street celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee. This panel with its old-style artwork (a reproduction of a postcard from during the Home Rule debate) is next to the much larger composite board to Queen Elizabeth on Crimea Street/Shankill Road (featured previously in For Those About To March).

“Ulster to England – Thou mayest find another daughter/With a fairer face than mine/With a gayer voice and sweeter/And a softer  eye than mine;/But thou canst not find another/That will love thee half so well!” The CAIN database indicates that this same girl and poem are also on Thorndyke St (photo at CAIN).

Not shown is a collection of flags on the low wall to the left – see M08637.

    I am currently writing a publication on flags and emblems in Northern Ireland, and would like permission to use this picture. The image will of course be appropriately credited in the caption that accompanies it.
