Welcome back to everybody and we hope that you all had a most enjoyable Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year! To begin 2018 we have a view of Main Street, Tipperary Town with lots of activity, commerical and otherwise, to view! We have been to Tipperary before but it was to the brave new world of New Tipperary, an experiment in breaking the shackles of wealthy owners and creating a peoples cooperative. I am intrigued by the vehicles on view with the goods strewn along the sides of the street, it appears to be an older shot than most with no motor cars, bicycles or light poles on view?

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900. Perhaps c.1900

    The Irish House at left (now Discount World) is from 1895, I think.

    Happy New Year! I took advantage of being home for Christmas, and went into the NPA to see the Photo Detectives Exhibition, which was excellent. (My mother was also fascinated both by the photos themselves and the various bits of information discovered).

    Milleas are in both the 1901 and 1911 censuses, so they don’t help.

    The TSB with its 1st storey bay windows is from 1900. Likewise the POST OFFICE beyond it although plans for the Post Office were in hand in 1893.

    In 1911 Ryan's neighbours are the Dwyers (looks like O'Dwyer in the photo...), not here in 1901? Here they are in 1901, so we are after that date.

    #HNY2018 ! The butter box (see note) might just have a date brand top left, if somebody has their spectacles handy. According to this interesting article, new standards, less salty butter, butter boxes replacing the old firkins, and date brands all happened in the early 1900s - countrylifehistory.ie/index.php/2013/10/cork-butter-market/ The women in the 'K' boots and shoes ad are looking 1905-ish - huge hats.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] I don't think the butter box has a date stamp, the word at top right looks to be NETT, so the number at top left is probably a weight.

    Neighbouring L_ROY_02578 is looking up Bridge St. at the same junction, surely the same day, but I don't see anything obviously more dateable.

    Only slightly off-topic, but will deffo be of use for people/places/churches/business adverts, etc., I just saw today that the Church of Ireland Gazette (formerly Irish Ecclesiastical Gazette) is now online from 1856-1923. It's a strangely sedate, but seductive rabbit hole for searching...

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] The Manchester Martyrs Memorial was unveiled on 10/3/1907 by a survivor Edward O'Meagher Condon (from Kansas), according to another interesting article - trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/169883252 The memorial does look newish in that other photo. I am voting for 1907+ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Martyrs
