W.G. O’Doherty’s Window

In 2023-24 we had a rare opportunity to acquire material from one of the buildings we have represented on site at the Ulster American Folk Park. W.G. O’Doherty’s, a grocery and public house, has its shopfront on Ulster Street.  Establishing his business in 1871, on Bishop Street in Derry/Londonderry, W.G. imported food from all over the world, including tea, sugar, dried fruit, and spices for the locals to enjoy. Some of the family involved in the business emigrated to North America in the early 20th century.
