These incredible diaries tell the story from the viewpoint of Patrick Maxwell, a solicitor who lived in East Wall, Derry at the turn of the 20th century. He traveled to the United States and Canada on multiple occasions, documenting the experiences on board a transatlantic journey and noting the emigrants around him in great detail. Click the links below to view the voyages as published in the Derry Journal, as well as a series of newspaper cuttings on goings on in the town around this period. Permission to digitise these collections was kindly given by Michael Bradley.
