A visit to the Mason Collection today and to a very fancy "Hatters Castle" type dwelling in County Westmeath. While it looks formidable those windows and doors probably indicate that it was never intended to repel anything other than the weather. Is it still standing and where is/was it?
raises interesting points. Firstly she thinks that this photo is reversed and I am inclined to agree with her. Secondly she believes this photo is some form of a cropped (and reversed) version of L_CAB_03197
and again we fully accept her proposition.
The above points do beg the question as to the relationships between the different photographers, why? how? does Mason end up with a Lawrence generated negative?
