Summary note:
"Before Aer Lingus made its first transatlantic flight, at a time when few Irish people could dream of taking to the air, intrepid aviator Alexander 'Monkey' Campbell Morgan (1919-1958) roamed Ireland's skies. A wartime pilot for the Royal Artillery Air Corps, he launched a peacetime career in aerial photography before his tragic death in a plane crash. Gathered here are over 250 of his evocative images of Ireland on the cusp of economic and social transformation ... This collection has recently been recovered from the Irish Independent [newspaper] Photo Archive, which was donated to the National Library of Ireland in 2004"-- Provided by publisher.
