Dolours Price – A Photographic Memoire

I recently discovered that Google Chrome has a far better image collection than Firefox which I had been using until now to cull photos for this blog. In particular their pics of Dolours Price contain some I had never seen before. So here, in no particular order, is a selection, a tribute in its way to the dead lady. RIP Dolours.

Dolours was a beauty, as this photo testifies. I guess it was shot in the mid 1990's but I don't know.

Dolours as she appeared on the CBS news show in the autumn of 2012. When a friend saw her, he was shocked by her appearance. "She's getting ready to die", he said.

Marian Price and Dolours Price photographed outside Downing Street. Date unknown but the pair would return to London in 1973 in very different circumstances, ferrying three car bombs to the city centre.

People could never spell her name correctly. Dolours, aptly in the circumstances, was a name that signified sorrow.

Again undated, but I would guess this was taken around the time of the student civil rights movement.

In her red hair phase, late 1990's. I believe Joe Graham may have taken this pic. She suited red hair.
