Clement Block, Deseronto
Description: View of block on corner of St. George and Thomas Streets from the south-east. This building was designed and constructed by George Clement in 1892. An article in the town's newspaper of the time, The Tribune, dated December 16, 1892, describes the building as 'an ornament to the town'. It originally housed shops, a doctor's rooms and the Deseronto Club. The top floor was occupied by the Masonic fraternity.

Mansion, Gorey, Co. Wexford
Description: The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this photo was what makes a house a mansion? Wikipedia provides the following definition: "A mansion is a large dwelling house. The word itself derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio "dwelling", an abstract noun derived from the verb manere "to dwell". The English word manse originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way (compare a Roman or medieval villa)". What can you tell us about this particular mansion? The general consensus (prompted initially by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet]) is that this is a view of Courtown House near Gorey, County Wexford. Demolished in the mid-20th century, this ex-mansion is now another entry in our "no longer standing" album.....

Possibly a general view of Malahide, Co. Dublin
Description: There seems to be a hole in the road and there seems to be at lease four men looking into it, so not much has changed in Ireland over the last 100 years! Our catalogue directs us to the suburban town of Malahide which is to the North of Dublin, is the catalogue correct? In short: It is :) :D Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely in first decade or two of range. Perhaps c.1910s.

Third Lock, River Lagan, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From Apostles of Temperance in Cork to locks on the Lagan near Belfast for todays image. The Eason collection has some interesting and educational images, and for me this was an eye-opener - as I never knew that the Lagan was managed and made navigable above the tide mark! When did all this take place and is it still in use? With thanks to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and the Wikipedia article on the 'Lagan Navigation', I am further educated on this section of waterway. Seemingly it opened in the mid-18th century, and was viable until the mid-20th century. Closed in the 1950s, it seems that at least part of the lock system (and these lock keepers cottages) have been restored and given new life since. I wonder what the man pictured would have made of it all....

Thatched cottages and flats on the bicycle - oh bliss!
Description: To end the week where we have had doubles, rebels and Gandelows we now have a truly charming Eason shot. A man mends a bicycle outside the door of a thatched cottage with a young girl in a pinny standing behind him watching the photographer at work. In the background is a town or city marked by a high spire dominating the landscape. There is no doubt but this scene has changed drastically in the meantime, if we can locate it(?) Rory Sherlock was quick with the location and subject: Old Town in Letterkenny, County Donegal. The spire in the background is that of the Cathedral of St. Eunan and St. Columba, which opened in 1901....

Is that a Ganlow or a Gondola I see before me?
Description: Those of you who are not "in the know" are wondering at that heading but the boat under the arch of the bridge is known as a "Ganlow" and allegedly they were based on the Gondola!

Description: Morning Mary is taking a bit of a punt today by posting two images of the same scene from the wonderful Eblana "upsidey downsie" collection.

This image with trams, pedestrians and activity in abundance provides a lovely contrast to the first!

Start today, make no delay!
Description: Poor morning Mary is suffering a bad bout of vertigo after all the standing on her head trying to see the "Uppsidey Downsie" half of yesterdays Eblana Collection offering. So, for safety's sake, I've gone back to the ever reliable Mr. Poole for this mornings offering! Just in case there was any doubt about what was being advertised in this (extensive) window display, we have confirmation that Maclean's (note placement of the "a" and the apostrophe mister sign-writer) Opas Powder was an antacid marketed from at least the mid 1930s. In this case it is being heavily promoted by Curtis' pharmacy on Waterford's Barrack Street.... Photographer: A. H.

Description: Most Poole photographs have been carefully posed but this is a "live" cricket match in full swing. Some may feel that cricket it about as exciting and interesting as paint drying but for the enlightened it is a game of great skill and tactics and a wonderful way to pass a sunny day. The general consensus is that this image was taken at the grounds of Cork County Cricket Club on the Mardyke in Cork city. Probably in the first decade or so of the 1900s-1950s range....

Irish water buffaloes?
Description: This smashing shot from the lens of Mr. French looks so crisp and clear that one could imagine that you were looking at it live! Lough Gill in Sligo is beautiful at any time and this captures the atmosphere and life of the place. Can we locate that place today? And indeed we can. Or, at least, Niall McAuley and BeachcomberAustralia can.

Enniscorthy, Castleboro - river and steps
Description: A big house near Enniscorthy in County Wexford taken from the level of the river. There is mention of "steps" but I cannot see them! Can you? As confirmed by today's contributors (and indeed by Wikipedia), Castleboro House was one of the many estate houses which did not survive the 1920s intact. While I can just about make out the steps (after some prompting) in this shot, it doesn't look like they've survived either. In fact, the water feature and falls seem to be all but gone also.....

Description: A cave deep in the woods would always hold the attraction of exploration and the thrill of danger, especially for the young at heart! Where is this one and has the scene changed much in the last 150 years? Rory_Sherlock was first to identify this as 'Badger's Cave', one of the colourfully named features of Blarney Castle and Gardens, and one of at least two caves beneath the old castle itself. The other, according to the equally colourful description of the Castle's website is known as 'the Dungeon'....

Description: Reading the catalogue description of this I thought that it would be like a "Cardall" image, an idealised bit of Paddywhackery but when I looked at the image my reaction was WOW!

A
Description: To the Eason Colllection for today's image and the "Midland Great Western Hotel, Recess, Co. Galway" which gives us a location but is it still standing? This is an unusual image in that the photographer has entered his shot complete with his camera! Niall McAuley tells us that this hotel is no longer standing. Apparently burnt-out during the Civil War, it likely wasn't rennovated afterwards, and seems to have been demolished since.... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Definitely after 1898 (built) and before 1922 (burnt) NLI Ref: EAS_4025 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Description: Continuing where we left off on Friday (matters maritime) but this time from the wonderful Clonbrock Collection. This view may not be as iconic as the Skelligs, but nonetheless it provides a pleasing vista with sea, sky, mountains and a safe harbour. Following the tremendous achievement of the Irish Rugby team on Saturday in beating World Champions New Zealand Ireland can bask in the teams reflected glory for a wee while! And indeed it was from the antipodes that good news came again on this photo. With BeachcomberAustralia quickly identifying this as Bray harbour. The date range was refined also, with [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] pointing us to this Bray Cualann Historical Society webpage which tells us that the lighthouse pictured stood between the late 1890s and 1950s. More than halving the very broad range for this particular image....

Hard to starboard
Description: From the far North West we are propelled to the South East to view the good ship SS Fastnet. Mr Poole was a great man for photographing sea going vessels, the date range here is made for “narrowing” though we have found in the past that these ships can have very long lives themselves. And so it was that [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] was able to narrow our 50 year range to just 5. (On the basis that the SS Fastnet had been the SS Monaleen prior to 1918, and was known as SS St Abbs Head after 1923. Putting us firmly in the "1920 plus or minus a few years" range...)

Sure it would take me hours to walk over that stuff...
Description: The catalogue description of this image suggests that it is a man standing on a castle, but the benefits of "Super Dooper Mega Zoom" (technical term) show that this is not the case. The man is sitting on a fairly modern building looking out over tidal flats with a town in the background. I suspect that this will take some time to identify but then the Lemur, Sharon or Niall are just as likely to make a liar out of me! Where is it? And, with his first (and critical) hypothesis, John McK has established that this is Bundoran, County Donegal. Thanks John!

At last - A dog accompanied by a woman!
Description: 'Painting by Sir John Lavery for Mrs. McEnery, Kilmoganny' is the catalogue title for this shot from the Poole Collection. Featuring a dog allowing itself to be held by a young lady it looks a really lovely portrait. I am no dog expert but it appears to me to be a Pekinese which would have been quite uncommon at that time. Who is the subject and can we date the painting itself? Based on inputs from Niall McAuley, BeachcomberAustralia, and sharon.corbet the general consensus is Sir John Lavery painted this in the 1910s. If so it could well be a portrait of his step-daughter Alice Trudeau (born c.1904), and she later commissioned a copy herself, as Mrs. McEnery. Some time after he marriage to a Jack McEnery in 1930. Seems imminently plausible to us Marys..... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954.

But the last shall be first and the first shall be last: May the Lord in His mercy be kind to Belfast
Description: A monument to Sir E. J. Harland in Belfast takes us up north of the border (which is in the news) today, and gives me an opportunity to quote from Maurice Craig's wonderful poem. Harland is a name that is synonymous with Belfast - but I confess to know very little about the bearer of that name, can you enlighten me? And so I have learned something - including his apparent like of the odd cigar :) While Edward James Harland is perhaps best known for his shipbuilding activities, his Wikipedia article also lists him as a politician. And he was Mayor and later MP for Belfast for a period. This statue was one of several by Thomas Brock on the grounds of Belfast's city hall. Though in a broad catalogue range (1860s-1910s), this image was likely captured within a few years of the statue's unveiling - in mid-1903.....

The ruin and the cross
Description: For most of our old photographs the vegetation will have increased in the area since it was taken but in this case hope and suspect that it has actually reduced. An old overgrown building, in a marshy, reed covered field with a distinctive high cross should be easy to find? With lightening reflexes, O Mac identified this as the church and high cross of the monastery (founded in the 6th century) on Inishmacsaint, Lough Erne.

A truly institutional institution!
Description: To the Stereo Pairs collection today, and to a vast institution somewhere. These great building projects were intended to provide treatment and care for people in a region and have lasted for many years though few remain in their original use to this day. Where are we and is it still standing? Niall McAuley and derangedlemur combine to tell us that this is longer standing. While it was standing (for 100 years between the 1820s and the 1920s), it was the "District Lunatic Asylum" on the Falls Road in Belfast. Originally built to designs by architects William Murray and Francis Johnston (the latter perhaps best known for his work on Dublin's GPO), it was demolished to make way for a new maternity hospital in the early 20th century....

Main Street, Longford on a market day
Description: Starting this week with a Lawrence image of Main Street, Longford on a busy market day! I love shots like this with a wealth of detail, lots of people, animals, carts and produce on display. It will be difficult to date this from the evidence on view but we can enjoy all the atmosphere that Mr. French has so beautifully captured. The general concensus on date is that this image was captured after 1901. The rationale being that, while we can see the shop of J&M Farrell (brothers) in this image and the 1911 census return, at the time of the 1901 census, John and Michael Farrell were "serving their time" separately in other retail businesses on the same street. Hence this image surely dates after 1901 - as, at that time, they hadn't yet set up shop together..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Almost certainly after c.1901 (businesses visible). Possibly c.1901-1910s NLI Ref: L_CAB_08257 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie
