Death Of Innocence
The young girl in the mural is Annette McGavigan who was 14 years when she was killed on 6 September 1971. She was shot dead by a British soldier while standing on the street in which she lived. The mural is close to the site where she died.
The photograph on the right shows the Bogside Artists standing in front of their mural in the Bogside in Derry.
The mural was unveiled on Wednesday 1 September 1999.
