Loo Bridge, Co. Kerry (and no toilet humour please?)
Description: Yet another wonderful Royal plate from Mr. French today with a valley scene from Glenflesk, Co. Kerry. Loo Bridge in Glenflesk looks to have been the centre of activity in the area at that time but I for one never heard of it! What was the bridge used for and does it still stand? And the answer is that, while no longer in use (as a rail line, station and bridge at least), much of the structures we see here still remain. Another shot mercifully left out of our "no longer standing" album :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900.

The castle at the Salmon Leap!
Description: This lovely Royal plate image from Mr. French of Leixlip Castle with the Liffey in the foreground to start the week with a bang. The Liffey along that stretch and down along through Lucan and the Strawberry Beds is just beautiful with all the big houses and the fine land to green the view! Based on some fine shots of the same view from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] it would seem that it is the trees that "green the view" today. And at least partially obscure the castle. The boat house is still visible and extant however....

Down the old bog road
Description: Yesterday we had a couple bringing home the turf and today we have people living on the bog with a straight road leading off to the distant hills. The cataloguer seems to have been under the impression that the people were leaning on a rick of turf but it looks more like their home to me! Do you agree and where is it? Whether temporary or otherwise, the general consensus is that this is a picture dwelling. And O Mac has expertly pinpointed it to the road between Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey in Connemara....

Bringing home the turf
Description: What appears picturesque today was a reality not that long ago for many people in remote areas of Ireland. Neddy the donkey was the chief source of power for transport. The creels on the back of the donkey would indicate terrain that was too rough for a cart or that the family were to poor to afford the cart. Times change? Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia for the (generally favoured) suggestion that we are in County Antrim, not too far from a relatively recent image of what appears to be some of the same people....

Ladies in crinolines with parasol in stereo - twice as nice!
Description: This crisp, clear and beautiful image from the Stereo Pairs Collection shows a very attractive building with two ladies in crinolines standing outside. The building itself is quite distinctive which should make it easy to identify? Unfortunately I don't see any dogs :-( The general consensus is that this is St. Anne’s Hydro and Turkish Bath in Blarney, County Cork. Which, according to Archiseek at least, dates to 1870, and narrows our range a bit. The building, including the clock we see here, is just about still standing....

Description: This Cable Station in County Kerry is bathed in sunshine and looking spruce! In the days when telegrams were the principal long range method of communication working in this building would have been the centre of activitiy. Waterville in good weather would be just heavenly.... .... Except this probably isn't Waterville. According to today's contributors, while this is County Kerry, someone has mistaken the cable station in Waterville for the one on Valentia.

Description: The title on today's image from the Clonbrock Collection could be a really difficult clue from a cryptic crossword! "Wellington from F's room. Fishing" could easily be 12 down or perhaps 3 across? It is a photograph this time whereas most Clonbrock images up to now have been glass plates so after 70 million views we can begin with something different! There general consensus is that "Wellington" is Wellington College in Berkshire, and that the "F" who has a room here is perhaps Francis Marcus Crofton - grandson of Edith Dillon..... Thank you all for the fantastic support that enabled the NLI images to garner such an incredible level of viewing as well as the wonderful research and identification that has gone on. It has been a joy to take a small part therein!

When spacemen walked the earth!
Description: This Morning Mary loves when visitors to Ireland who have not been here before come calling so that they can be taken to see the wonders of Newgrange! The workmanship on the enormous stones would be impressive in today's context but given that they were carried out more than 5,000 years ago they are phenomenal!

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!

Sackville Street in full swing.
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. Since they are the same scene yet with great differences of population and activity we felt that together they would provide even more enjoyment? 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.

Hit 'em for six!
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'....

The wheels fell off the wagon!
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! This is so different, almost Eastern European in its style and there are so many things to wonder at! Will we ever know where it was taken? And, in a way that should no longer surprise me I guess, the "WOW" factored continued. When derangedlemur neatly identified this photo as being taken along the Garron Road, close to Glenariff in County Antrim.....

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....

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....

Kungsstugan (The King's Cottage), Örebro, Närke, Sweden
Description: The King's Cottage in Örebro, probably built in the 16th century. According to tradition, the future King Karl IX stayed in a guestroom in the building when visiting Örebro in 1580, since Örebro castle was under rebuilding. Primarily, the cottage was used for storing food. (It was moved from its original position in the beginning of the 20th century.) Wash drawing by Olof Sörling, from 1875. Kungsstugan i Örebro, troligen uppförd på 1500-talet. Den blivande kung Karl IX lär enligt trafitionen ha bott i ett gästrum i byggnaden när han besökte Örebro 1580, eftersom Örebro slott var under ombyggnad. Byggnaden användes främst som visthusbod. (Den flyttades från sin ursprungliga plats i början av 1900-talet.) Laverad teckning av Olof Sörling, från 1875.
