In the 60s, 70s and 80s images of the Bogside
were flashed around the world's media highlighting it as a no-go area, a venue for street protests and riots, and the site of a massacre on what became known as "Bloody Sunday"
(30th January 1972), when twenty six civil rights protesters were shot (14 of them fatally wounded) by members of the 1st Battalion of the British Parachute Regiment.
For the tourists now arriving in Derry the Bogside is another stop on their "Troubles Tours"
For the Bogside Artists
it is an open air gallery for their murals, several of which can be seen in this panorama, documenting incidents from the conflict.
For the people who live here it is a close-knit community feeling its way into a post-conflict world.
The panorama opens looking towards what was once the gable-end of Columbs Street, on which in January 1969, was painted the slogan "YOU ARE NOW ENTERING FREE DERRY"
. It marked the location of barricades erected to keep the police out of the area.
Despite the rest of the street being demolished, in the intervening years, the wall and the slogan have been preserved in the middle of a four lane road and is known as Free Derry Corner
As the panorama rotates you pass several of the murals. About half way around, behind the trees and parked cars you pass the memorial to the people killed on Bloody Sunday.
Behind and above it you catch a glimpse of Derry's city centre
within the medieval city walls
