Prisoners marched along quays

The black-and-white image (inset left) shows a group of rebels being marched west along Bachelors Walk following their surrender in April 1916.

It was likely taken from the Ha'Penny Bridge on Sunday, April 30, the day after the surrender.

That day around 1,000 prisoners were marched from the city centre to Richmond Barracks in Inchicore. The barracks served as a detention and processing centre, from which rebels were either deported to prisons or internment camps in Britain, or sent to Kilmainham Gaol.
