Abstract

This chapter explores memories of sound from a former industrial and market site in Dublin city. It examines the non-visual ‘losses’ experienced by a group of older people (5 adults aged from 60 to 70 years (2 women and 3 men)) who grew up in and around the Smithfield area of Dublin city from the 1950s to the 1970s. Their descriptions of the space are immersive; they recalled in detail the sounds, smells and images of a particular culture at a particular time.
