Dr. Webb looks quite fiercely focused in this studio portrait. Perhaps he was pondering serious matters? Or perhaps he just hated having his photograph taken? Either way, we'd love to find out a lot more about Dr. Webb.

Oh, and we have a lovely new photographer to play with today – C. Neville Cook, of Kingstown as was, Dun Laoghaire as is.

    His book on the 'Guilds of Dublin' was published in 1929 - therefore the date of this photo? He would have been 43 (b. 1886). catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000466946

    Kingstown became Dun Laoghaire in 1920, so this photo taken before 1920?? Unless C. Neville Cook stuck with his old Kingstown embossing stamp...
