Nostalgic glimpse of Belfast's Mod movement

BY AMANDA FERGUSON

She was trigger-happy during the Eighties – but in a good way.

As a teenager, Jacqueline McFall (above) embraced Belfast's Mod scene and loved photographing its characters.

Now those nostalgic snap-shots of the stylish era have been published.

The 47-year-old's first picture book – Mod Is Mod Not Fade Away – was published in the mid-1980s when she was just 19.

Now her second book, The Album, has hit the shelves.

She said: "I loved the culture and music and that it brought Catholics and Protestants together.

"I took up black and white photography and loved it. I was trigger-happy in the right way – cameras not guns!

"There are lots of Mod clubs at the moment and people were asking me about reprinting my first book.

"I decided to do a new book and people are loving it."
