Mary Louisa Hamilton Norway watched the 1916 Easter Rising from a hotel in Dawson Street and published her family letters about it the same year. Her husband Arthur worked at the post office the insurgents used as their headquarters, and wrote an account of his own experience. Their narratives include their teenage son, who grew up to be novelist Nevil Shute. Jeffery (modern history, U. of Ulster- Jordanstown) presents the two documents and frames a historical context.
