Grafiti Wall, Belfast, 1973

?Graf?ti Wall?, Belfast, 1973 - Oil on board, by Ralph Lillford, 1973. Associated with Northern Ireland (1969-2007). During ?the Troubles?, Belfast street walls became a place for rival sectarian graf?ti, often painted layer upon layer. A form of psychological warfare which also demonstrated control of terrain, the slogans were often directed at the British Army, exhorting them to ?go home?, or else boasted of paramilitary loyalties, such as ?Provos Rule?. Periodically the Army would drive past these walls and throw paint bombs at the slogans. The soldier wears a fragmentation vest, commonly known as a flak jacket, over DPM (disruptive pattern material) jacket and trousers. He wears his visor up on his helmet and carries an anti-riot shield. Date: 1974

Football Thuggery - the nature of the 'real game' at hand

Football Thuggery - the nature of the 'real game' at hand as the players of the opposing sides knock lumps out of each other! This card is a neat comment on a footballing story of more recent times, when (in protest at the ownership of the club by the American Glazer family) some elements of the Manchester United support adopted the original club colours of Gold and Green (Newton Heath) in direct opposition to the red of the modern 'regime'. Date: 1921
