The BMH Photo (BMH P) series
This series consists of some 400 photographs submitted to the Bureau, many of which are instantly recognisable as iconic images of the period. Certain photographs in the BMH, such as the aerial shots of 1916 Rising action sites, are not contemporary and were taken much later by the Air Corps. The original BMH index for the photographs included basic descriptions of 'groups' of photographs from certain contributors. You can search the BMH photograph series by clicking the search icon below. The images were also digisited including the rear of the photos with relevant captions provided. For basic guidance on how to search effectively, please see some tips for effective searching.

Stringent precautions were taken at Limerick during the funeral of R. J. Byrne, the Sin Fein hunger striker, but law and order prevailed. His rescue from the local hospital resulted in his death, and was the cause of the death of Constable O'Brien, who was shot while resisting attempts at rescue. There were also casualties to police and Sinn Feiners. About 3,000 young men followed the coffin.-(Sunday Pictorial exclusive photographs.)
