In the 19th and 20th centuries this market town in the centre of County Down developed a thriving tourist trade around the attraction of the local spa wells. Our illustrated history details the story of the town over that period, recalling events such as the visit of Edward Carson in 1913 and including nostalgic reminders of a time when you could take a ‘jaunting car’ at the station or buy a hand-made broom from the ‘Besom Man&rsquo.
