Need help finding a photo
« on: August 16, 2009, 02:25:30 PM »
Hi,

Back in the 1990's, there was a much publicised photo in all the newspapers of the time, showing a soldier on the streets of Belfast, with a local child placing a single flower into the muzzle of his rifle.
I thought this was such a strong and iconic image, symbolising the hopes and aspirations for the future that we all felt at the time.

I've been searching all morning and can't find it anywhere on the internet, which seems odd to me.
Does anybody know where I can find this image online, or even what it was called or the photographers name so I can search more effectively?

Many thanks,
Sam.

suggest you try here as they took the photo - I think Marty Wright ?  might have been the photographer.
