The best-selling book – Dublin’s Working Prams: A Photographic Portrait of Dublin Street Traders – has over 100 pages of colour and black and white photographs and interviews with street traders. It contains photographs from the archives of landmark trading settings like Moore Street and O’Connell Street in Dublin from the 1950s onwards, as well as dozens of more modern images taken by the author. It provides a lovely visual and nostalgic tour of Dublin city and some of its most colourful characters with their vintage prams full of fruit, chocolates, and flowers.  In fact, these perambulating stalls provide all manner of goods – shamrock for St Patricks Day, hats for sporting occasions, Valentines cards, Easter eggs – goodies of all kinds! The book traces the history of street trading history from Molly Malone to modern times, and was written, photographed, and printed in Ireland!
