Sir Walter Raleigh, cottage at Youghal
Description: From the academic Sir John P. Mahaffy to his more famous knightly colleague Sir Walter Raleigh and a cottage in County Cork! My definition of a cottage and Raleigh's definition would be many miles (or rooms and windows) apart it seems. I thought that the only remaining reminder of Raleigh was Tournafulla in Limerick where his troops decimated the population after the Desmond rebellion...? Based on today's insights, it seems possible that this image was taken while the house (known as Myrtle Grove) was owned by the Blake family; some members of whom could perhaps be captured in the windows.....

Kautokeino in ruins
Description: Originalbeskrivelse:The small township of Kautokeino in the county of Finnmark is today in a derelict state. The characteristic church, all the official buildings and private homes were razed to the ground by the Germans when they retreated from the area. About 2000 of the population are today living in the mountains in earth huts and tents. Picture shows a wrecked German car left by the occupation troops.

Soviet troops forcing a fjord on their way to Kirkenes, Norway
Description: Original bildetekst: A German shell throws up a geyser beside their boat as Soviet troops proceed through a Norwegian fjord on their way to attack the enemy in the port of Kirkenes. Soviet troops liberated the vital port, which lies at the northeastern tip of Norway, on October 25, 1944. Also a submarino and air base, its capture deprives the Germans of the springboard from which they attacked Allied convoys delivering U.S. Lend-Lease supplies to Murmansk in Russia, and draws still tighter the ring of encirclement about Germany. This is a radiophoto sent from Moscow to the U.S. Arkivreferanse: NTBs krigsarkiv i Riksarkivet (RA/PA-1209/U/Uj/L0219g)

Castle on the hay covered hill
Description: This beautifully restored(?) castle set in a field of early cut hay is this offering from the Stereo Pairs Collection. When you think how old these images are the quality and clarity is just remarkable. Where is it and what does it look like now? With thanks to sharon.corbet we got answers to both of these questions. The first answer (where?) is that this is Kilwaughter Castle, an early 19th century mansion close to Larne, County Antrim. The second answer (look like now?) is that it doesn't look so great. Seized during WWII, it fell into ruin from the 1950s onwards, and barely a shell remains. There does however seem to be a campaign to see it restored....

Charabanc at the Lake Hotel
Description: This delightful shot shows a "Charabanc" or "Omnibus" loading up with happy trippers outside the Lake Hotel in Inchigeela, County Cork. The image is full of detail including hats, horses, people - but any dogs? As evidenced by the modern Flickr view highlighted by BeachcomberAustralia, and the modern StreetView shared by Niall McAuley, while the traffic in Inchigeela has changed, the businesses on view have not changed too much. Indeed, even the signage (for the Cyclist's Touring Club on the guest house, and Murphy's sign on the public house) has similar equivalents today. It is these original/older signs which help date the image - to perhaps the late 1890s or 1900s....

NOT a
Description: While this is NOT the exterior of a Gothic revival/restoration stone church it just may be the interior of just such a church. This appears to be one of a number of images of the same church in the archive. This one shows a beautifully clean, tidy and empty church all ready for Sunday service but where is it? There was mighty craic with the image last Friday and may I apologise to all our Cork brethren for suggesting that their beautiful city is naught but a "hamlet" :-) And today's image is from no small hamlet either - but Down Cathedral in Downpatrick.

Description: A visit to the Stereo Pairs Collection today and to a country church(?) with "square tower of rubble masonry". The shot has been reduced to a single image for ease of viewing on Flickr. In the past we have been able to identify places and times by the tombstones but I am not sure the detail is there on this one. While we'd originally titled this with a line from Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, ("The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep"), Niall McAuley schooled us that, technically, a hamlet (almost by definition) is a settlement that doesn't have a church. Shortly afterwards, based on cues and clues that hinted at a Cork based location, and in particular a similarly titled reverse view, sissonni established this as the "old" St Finbarre's Cathedral in Cork. As it was demolished and replaced, by William Burges, from 1865, we know that this image must have been captured before then....

Callow Hill, Roundwood, Co. Wicklow
Description: Having assumed that yesterday's "location unknown" image would keep everyone busy for a few days (how wrong I was), I hadn't really prepared anything for today. And hence have not taken the time to investigate the background to today's offering. Presumably however the "Vartry" reference in the image connects it with the Vartry reservoir and water works of the mid-19th century.... Based on extensive inputs from abandoned railways, sharon.corbet, BeachcomberAustralia, O Mac and in particular Niall McAuley we learned a lot about both the inanimate and human subjects of this shot. Put simply, based on the OSI maps, similar catalogue images, census records and related publications, this tank is indeed part of the Vartry reservoir and works. Not only that, but it is 99% certain that the people pictured are Murtagh Geoghegan, Mary Geoghegan and one of their sons (Thomas, Patrick or John). This family lived at the nearby and aptly named "Tank House", with Murtagh acting as caretaker of this part of the water works. While John Gray was commemorated with a statue on O'Connell Street for his efforts in bringing fresh water and improved conditions to Dublin's citizens, we're delighted to acknowledge the contribution of the Geoghegan family ourselves today :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Railway Station House, Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow
Description: Back when railway stations were designed with a sense of style and purpose, this confection was landed in Bagenalstown in County Carlow. The symmetrical design was to cater for the vast flow of passengers in and out - though they had departed by the time this shot was taken. However, careful examination will show that a couple of special passengers are making their way to the right hand entrance and near the left there is a d..... We learned that this station, together with several other "picturesque gothic" stations in Ireland, was designed by English architect Sancton Wood. Though closed for a period in the late 20th century, Muine Bheag (Bagnalstown) station is since reopened and is a "halt" on the Dublin to Waterford line.....

Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran?
Description: The triumphant pose of the figure above those boulders reminded Morning Mary of the old tonguetwister. Shot by Mr. French on a cabinet sized camera it would appear to be in a not so accessible position at Carrignagat, Collooney, County Sligo. This monument, dedicated to 1798 leader Bartholomew Teeling commemorates actions at the Battle of Collooney. Built by sculptors Harrison & Sons of Great Brunswick St, Dublin, our contributors tell us that the Teeling Monument was unveiled on the battle's centenary - 1898. Helping refine the 50 year catalogue range to a 15 year period in the late 1890s or 1900s.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Old Cross, Sligo
Description: From the delights of Woodstown in Waterford and wasp waisted women to ancient artifacts and abodes in Sligo! This fine celtic cross appears to have been beautifully decorated, and is positioned with a tower in the background. Some great vertical lines in the shot. Is it still standing and in that location? Even though this image may have been mirrored in the scanning/digitising process, BeachcomberAustralia and Rory_Sherlock quickly and concurrently identified this as Drumcliffe, County Sligo. Where there are a number of high crosses. And, apparently Sligo's only round tower. Poet William Butler Yeats is buried only a few paces away.....

Woodstown, water, white wall and wasp waist!
Description: This lovely shot from the Poole Collection of the beach at Woodstown, County Waterford has a number of attractions. Soft sand, boys making sand castles, fish traps in the distance, a beached boat and a lady with an impossibly narrow waist. Confirmed to have been taken at Woodstown Strand, the consensus is that at least some of those pictured may be members of the Poole family. Perhaps on holiday or a day-out from the busy photography studio in Waterford. Maybe around 1900 or so.... Photographer: A. H.

Go west young man, go west!
Description: Killala Bay, Kilcummin, Co. Mayo looking pristine with a sharp horizon line is todays offering from the Lawrence Collection. Given the size of Killala Bay this could be looking North, South, East or West and we could still have such an horizon but no doubt the cartographers among you will have the shot properly oriented in jig time? Today's contributors point-out that the main difference between this image and the modern StreetView is that Kilcummin's stone pier/breakwater has not yet been built. There is evidence that this may have been constructed after c.1893, and likely before c.1898 - when a plaque commemorating a French landing in 1798 was seemingly unveiled. This event was (somewhat unusually) marked on the historic OSI maps, along with a label identifying these cottages as part of the local coastguard station. The eagle-eyed amongst our Flickroonies also note that some of the men pictured are wearing coastguard uniforms. By the late 19th century these men were likely more on the lookout for troubled fishingboats than for French invaders.....

A hive of activity - Main Street, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary
Description: It's a long way from Tipperary South Riding and Cashel to Tipperary North Riding and Roscrea but only if you are trying to walk it! We started the week with a visit to Cashel of the Kings and here we have the Main Street of Roscrea of the Abbeys! This beautiful royal plate from Mr. French shows a scene of great activity, a public fountain and a mysterious building in the middle of the highway. I wonder what can help us to date the shot even if we cannot identify any of the donkeys? While we couldn't identify the beasts of burden, the burgeoning businesses seemingly help date this image to before c.1901. The fantastic fountain still stands apparently - though moved to nearby Rosemary Square. The marvelous and mysterious market house however did not survive the 1920s - perhaps unsurprising given its placement in the "middle of the road" and the coming of the motor car by then..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Definitely after c.1886 (central building).

Pier, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare
Description: We stay in County Clare and with the Lawrence Collection for the last photo of the week. For a while, Ballyvaughan was the official capital of this region of Clare, sporting its own workhouse, coastguard station and a large police barracks. The small boat on the left looks like a Galway Hooker to me, what do you think? Almost single handedly, B-59 helped refine the range, identify a key subject, and pinpoint the location. The date (previously a 50 year catalogue range from the 1860s to 1910s) is likely to be between the mid-1890s and early-1910s. This is based on the fact that the main identified subject (the steamer S.S. Duras) seemingly ran cargo and passenger services to this per (confirmed as at Ballyvaughan, Co Clare) from after 1893 to before 1912. Thanks B-59! Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Sunday's Well, Cork City, Co. Cork
Description: We are staying in the "Rebel County" today, just because it is a good thing to do. I believe all Corkonians will agree with the decision to present this wonderful landscape / cityscape. I am not very good on sports, where is swordscookie when you need him? Probably off somewhere nice enjoying the Sun! If he was here he might explain why rugby and Sunday's Well seem linked in my mind? Though labelled "Sunday's Well" (and the foreground certainly includes much of that area of the northside of Cork), the consensus from contributors to this image is that it was taken from off Donovan's Road on the south side. Perhaps from Connaught Avenue, but certainly across the Western Road and taking in the city entrance to UCC....

Fairy Rings and Flagpoles.
Description: They're not Fairy Rings of course, but rather enclosures to keep the sheep from eating the plants? To start the week we visit Valentia in Co. Kerry once again and this time to "Glenleam" and what appears to be an hotel or guesthouse. Mr. French appears to have been blessed with sunshine on his visits to the island and got some lovely images of that place at that time. This cabinet sized shot was taken after a trek it seems as he seemed to prefer Royals when he was on ground level! Our intrepid contributors tell us that Glanleam House and Glanleam Gardens are still open to visitors. And, though originally built in the late 18th century, still owe much of their current layout to Peter George Fitzgerald, 'Knight of Kerry', who the gardens in the early to mid 19th century.....

Quays, Derry City, Co. Derry
Description: Staying in Ulster again to end the week and today visiting the lovely city of Derry on the banks of the Foyle! The Quays have shipping tied up - but it does not look like a hive of activity. Looking at the timbers on the quay it is most likely that a lot has changed in the interim? With thanks to all the usual incredible contributions in the comments, we've been able to map this location accurately. And refine the near 50-year catalogue range to perhaps a 15-year range between the mid-1890s and early 1910s. The latter is possible because of the vessels visible. The smaller vessel, nearest the photographer, is the Screw Steamer 'Harrier'. Built in 1892, she was torpedoed in 1943 (by u-boat U181). The larger steamer, just beyond, is the Packet Steamer 'Duke of York'. Built in 1894, she was renamed the 'Peel Castle' in 1911/1912, and pressed-into service as an Armoured Boarding Vessel during WWI. While the subjects on the leftside of this image are gone forever, it's worth noting that at least some of the focus from the rightside (including the city's Guildhall tower) remain as they were.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Definitely after c.1894 (Duke of York steamship came into service). And before c.1912 (Duke of York renamed). NLI Ref: L_ROY_02563 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea!

Steeple, sun, shadows, skirts and Siezer the dog!
Description: This beautiful Eason shot of Rathgar at the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries features the steeple of the Presbyterian "Christchurch" and a whole world of other detail! I love the fact that the vast majority of the people on view are ladies and girls! Electric trams but no motor cars might provide some clue as to the date but I could sit here all day and enjoy it. The general consensus is that this is after 1900 (electrified trams, fashions) and before 1920 (lack of cars, businesses visible, etc). Of the businesses visible, those on the left of the street (Heffernan's grocers and wine merchants at no.108 and Perry's fruiters at no.106) had a presence from the late 1890s through to at least the mid-1910s. Others (like Hanlon's butchers at no.107) seem to have been later arrivals - but apparently a fixture until the mid-1920s at least. Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Probably after c.1901 (tram electrification). Perhaps c.1910 (fashions/businesses) NLI Ref: EAS_1918 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Group of people near the place where Kevin Barry was captured
Description: Keven Barry was arrested on 20th September 1920, are we dealing with a contemporary photo or one taken after the event, the Catalogue date of 1921 would suggest the latter? The general consensus is that this may have been taken some time after the events of 20 September 1920. Whether a few hours later, days later, or longer, the consensus is that more immediate contemporaneous photos (like this one) suggest a busier scene in the immediate aftermath. That this is the spot, on the corner of North King Street and Church Street, is confirmed however.... Photographer: W. D. Hogan Collection: Hogan Wilson Collection Date: Catalogue date c.1921.

Who lives in a Fairy Castle?
Description: Yet again we have a case of deja vu! We seem to have seen aspects of this estate in the past though not the castle itself. A renaissance style castle set in the North of Ireland must have seemed pretty pretentious to the sober, hard working northern folk? To all our many supporters and contributors on this Photostream we the three Marys and all at Library towers wish you a very happy St. Patricks Day. To the Ireland team who take on England in a Grand Slam decider tomorrow we say COME ON IRELAND Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia, sharon.corbet, and Niall McAuley for quickly identifying that this isn't strictly a castle - but the 19th century Scottish Baronial architecture of Helen's Bay railway station in County Down. John Spooner also suggests that, unlike other stereopairs that he's helpfully "3d-ified" this image isn't an entirely true stereo image. Apparently both sides are identical..... Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1883.

A Royal Plate for a Royal Hotel in Valentia
Description: This fine Royal Plate from the Lawrence Collection is our offering for today. A magnificent hotel taken on a sunny and calm day with lots of activity on the nearby pier and water makes it look the perfect vacation destination! The activity on the fishing boat tied to the pier caused me to look at it closely and the rig appears unusual. I would love to have that rig and the nets over the side explained to me? As with yesterday's image of Galway City, there is something of a sense of deja vu with this image of Knightstown on Valentia island - unsurprising given that we (and French, Mason and O'Dea) have visited several times before. This visit was perhaps early in the catalogue's c.1890-1910 range - as the clock tower (perhaps under constructions here) is dated by its NIAH entry to c.1870-1890....

Eglington Buildings and Claddagh Rings (Dillons), Galway City, Co. Galway
Description: On the first day on our search for the next 60 million views we have this lovely Eason image of the heart of Galway city. Galway is such a picturesque and welcoming place and this area is the beating heart of the city itself. The Claddagh Ring is synonymous with the county and has been explored here in the past. We were reminded today that we've visited this corner of William St and Eglinton St before - though perhaps not amongst the same crowds evident in this 2017 StreetView. The general consensus is that this image dates to perhaps the mid/late 1920s. Or even the early 1930s. At 1 in the afternoon. 'Dublin Time' :) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely after 1922/23 (buildings).

The Giants Ring in Kenmare
Description: To the Lawrence Collection this morning and to "The Giants Ring", Kenmare, Co. Kerry. It is not easy to pick it out due to the more modern construction dominating the foreground but there appears to be a ring of ancient stones as the feature? As Niall McAuley points out, the construction date of Kenmare Stone Circle itself (c.2500-1000 BC) doesn't really help with dating this image :) Niall's investigations on the nearby/visible houses however suggest that this image dates from after 1874. Helping narrow the catalogue range by a decade (to c.1874-1914). The lime kiln, on the left, was apparently part of a nearby quarry. The more modern landscaping and planting around the circle give it a much more lush and enclosed feel today...

Renaissance Residence as Rustic Rural Retreat?
Description: 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? sharon.corbet 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? sharon.corbet DannyM8 O Mac Niall McAuley BeachcomberAustralia I think it is a dog and he/she has moved before L_CAB_03198 was snapped.

Clonhugh, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath
Description: From the moving statue of King Billy to a big, a very big, house outside Mullingar in County Westmeath. This large building with extensions looks like yet another country house converted into a convent or school. Am I right? Morning Mary I have to tell you you are wrong! Within minutes Niall McAuley told us that the house is currently a private dwelling. Messers French and Lawrence are also incorrect with their spelling, it is in fact Clonhugh not Clonugh as on the face of the photograph. I love the story posted by BeachcomberAustralia from 1891, under the heading DOG BITES LORD GREVILLE Lord Greville, I am sorry to learn, was bitten the other day by a dog at Clonhugh, his lordship's seat in County Westmeath. The popular peer left Ireland immediately, and travelled "right away" to Paris, there to place himself under the care of M. Pasteur. By this time I hope he is completely cured........ We are presuming that he visited the one and only Louis Pasteur who discovered pasteurisation and also developed a vaccination for anthrax and rabies, again we are presuming the rabies jabs were the object of the dash to Paris by Lord Greville.

Description: The cataloguer may not have had the benefit of super zoomability as we do, and so perhaps did not highlight the castle nestling among the trees. At first viewing I thought that this might confound us, but that huge keep may make this easier than expected. Where is it and is it still standing? Rory_Sherlock was quick to confirm the location of this shot. It was undoubtedly taken from the garden of Rockmount House looking eastwards towards Castle Howard in County Wicklow. Both residences are located in the Vale of Avoca, close to the "meeting of the waters" on the Avonbeg river. It seems that both are, indeed, still standing. If the lawn or Rockmount House is still set up for tennis, one imagines it didn't get much use during the unprecendented March snow this week.....

The Tomb of King Connor, Roscommon, Co. Roscommon
Description: On a day when history repeats itself, Ireland has 3 inches of snow and slows to a dead stop we have the tomb of King Connor (whoever he was) and perhaps a little bit of real history. And the history of this tomb/effigy is as interesting as it is ancient. Feidlim Ua Conchobair (Fedhlim O'Connor) was King of Connacht from 1233 to 1265, and founded the the Dominican Priory of St. Mary in Roscommon - where this memorial remains. Apart from (apparently) some missing pieces, it is remarkably well preserved after nearly 800 years. One wonders what he would have made of the 'magic' that allows for a 3D model of his memorial....

A fine collection of ivy? (on 'St. Columb's House')
Description: The title for this Stereo Pairs image goes "Celtic Oratory - very overgrown" which is somewhat of an understatement! Looking at the door and the stonework I would not have recognised it as a Celtic church building festooned with ivy. It will be interesting to see if we can establish its location? (FYI - Well done to all on the terrific detective work yesterday! To identify not only the people in the shot but the place where it was taken was excellent and very enjoyable to watch as it unfolded.) Perhaps less intensive (but no less invaluable) investigation has confirmed that this is St. Columb's House a 12th (or perhaps 10th) century oratory in Kells, County Meath....

Right leaning chimneys in Rathdowney!
Description: The week is off to a rocky start with visit to a brewery first thing on Monday morning. This fine Royal plate from the Lawrence Collection, taken on a still day, shows a fine enterprise seemingly in full swing. Those chimney vents are interesting. and I suspect that they were under the influence of the wind to take away the vapours? I never heard of a brewery in Rathdowney and it will be interesting to read what can be dug up! The "leaning chimney cowls" are confirmed to be of a type that turned with the wind - so obviously weren't always angled to the right :) Our contributors also tell us that Perry's Brewery dates back to 1800 - and looks very similar in this 1832 illustration. The suggestion, though not absolute, is that this image may date from around 1900 - based on the dates attributed to other Lawrence/French images of the area....

The Queen's Yacht but not in Queenstown?
Description: The Queens Yacht at anchor (it is affixed to a buoy which means that it is moored not anchored) with what looks like its twin in the background. As Queenstown was the name given to Cobh in Co. Cork and this looks nothing like Cobh it is safe to say that this is not Queenstown! This lovely, crisp Royal plate from the Lawrence collection shows the detail of the ship to perfection. What seems surprising is the number of small boats in close proximity, herself was not that fond of mixing with the peasants? With confirmation that this is not Queenstown, and as derangedlemur notes, is actually/ironically Kingstown, we have mapped this image to the harbor at Dún Laoghaire. In terms of date, given that this "version" of the royal yacht was superseded by a newer vessel in 1901, it seems plausible that this image dates to a royal visit in 1900....

Rugged mountain and calm day at Glencar!
Description: Glencar Lake, Glencar, brings us back once again to the lovely and much maligned County Leitrim. Jokes such as "even the snipe wear wellingtons in Leitrim" give the impression of an unlovely and unloved county. However, as this and yesterday's photo show, such is far from the truth. We appear to have Mr. French's mode of transport parked conveniently as a gentleman fishes nearby! While the label on the slide says Sligo, and the view if clearly of Leitrim, this may be because Mr French was standing in one county while photographing the other. (The suggestion being that he was all but straddling the border between the two). Apart from location, some of today's conversation involved a revisit to previous images of the nearby Glencar Tea House - with some updates to the notes/discoveries over there......

Horse apples, stone walls and Benbo!
Description: This Eason image of Benbo mountain in County Leitrim has lots of atmosphere provided by a long line of horse dung, well constructed stone walls, a man (policeman?) with a firearm(?) walking off into the distance, and the mountain looking down over all! Not very uplifting on this windy morning in January but interesting nonetheless and the "streetview" will no doubt be illuminating?

A very rare visit to County Longford
Description: This is a rare visit to the county of Longford and the pity is that it shows two institutional buildings rather than the many fine sights there! The Convent of Mercy beside the Union building on a rise must have been dominating the town for many years. Not as difficult to locate as the bombed out bridge of last week but it will be nice to see what has changed here in the meantime? Our interpid detectives have confirmed that the changes in the meantime include the addition of an extra wing to the convent building, and the demolition of the workhouse buildings themselves (on the right). The general consensus is that image was captured no more than a few years after the building of the convent (c.1892) - given the condition, unfilled statue niches, and saplings in the garden....

Description: The statue of some cleric sitting in splendid isolation in St. Mary's Cathedral in Limerick City to begin the week. Last week we visited the beautiful county of Clare and today we go east to the gateway to the Shannon and the spiritual home of Rugby on the island of Ireland. The main learnings from today's photo concern the three memorials pictured:  • Centre is a statue of John Webb (bishop; 1775–1833) which was sculpted by Edward Hodges Baily in 1836.  • Right is a memorial to Thomas Summerfield (major; c.1767-1833) which was commissioned by his fellow officers, and  • Left is a memorial to George Tierney (merchant; d.1788) placed by his nephew following a bequest to the church in which it stands. In terms of dating this image, Niall McAuley offers a well-consider suggestion that it was captured prior to some renovation works (in this corner of the cathedral) which completed around 1880.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Maybe before 1880 (renovation) NLI Ref: L_CAB_02704 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Strand, Lahinch, Co. Clare
Description: We have visited Lahinch in County Clare before with photographs showing its golf and aviation connections. This excellent shot from the Lawrence stable of the strand and the Town itself is an ideal one for this forum as there is so much going on both in the foreground and at a distance. It looks like a lovely summers day? Shortly after we posted this image, BeachcomberAustralia was quick to remind us that we had posted a similar image - 7 looong years ago :) In the comments on that original image, [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] had told us that the Golf Links Hotel (seen on the cliff top here) was built in 1896. Putting this French image at least after that date.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Jewish Workers Club Bronislav Grosser Kharkov
Description: Jewish Workers' Club. Bronislav Grosser. Kharkov. This Jewish workers’ club located in Kharkov, Ukraine was named after Bronislav Grosser. Bronislav Grosser was a well-known Bundist, writer, and theoretician of Jewish nationalism from Poland. He became something of a Bundist legend after his death in 1912, with many cultural and educational institutions, particularly in interwar Poland, being named after him. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

May He Live Zalman Tuviyah Markovicius the Rabbi of Antaliepte in Lithuania
Description: May He Live, Zalman-Tuviyah Markovicius // the Rabbi of Antaliepte in Lithuania After serving as the Rabbi in the small Lithuanian town of Inturke (Anturke), Rabbi Zalman-Tuviyah Markovicius (Markovitz) relocated to the town of Antaliepte, also in Lithuania. The community of Antaliepte was a small Jewish community, and though many of its Jewish residents left the village after the First World War there were still several hundred Jews living there throughout the interwar period. Though Antaliepte was annexed by the Soviet Union in 1940, the community fell under the control of the Nazis on June 26th, 1941, shortly after the Nazis began their invasion of the Soviet Union. Rabbi Zalman-Tuviyah Markowitz, together with his son Hayim-Shimshon Markowitz, was murdered by the Nazis in the Ninth Fort in Kaunas. This was his book stamp. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

The American Library in Paris
Description: The American Library in Paris has been in existence since 1920, and was founded by The American Library Association (ALA), using books sent overseas as part of the Library War Service. (This was a program to provide reading materials to the soldiers fighting in WWI.) During the Nazi occupation of France, the American Library provided an “underground” service lending books to Jews who were barred from using other libraries. The AL managed to escape the war relatively unscathed due to the intervention of the Countess de Chambrun, who used her personal connection with a high-ranking Vichy official in order to keep the library open. To this day, The American Library remains the largest English-language lending library on the European continent. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.
