25 May 1919
Description: TWAM Ref: TWCMS:M4411 A. Reyrolle & Co. Ltd was founded by Alphonse Reyrolle (1864 - 1919), a French engineer who established a small switchgear shop in London in 1886. In 1901 his business moved to Hebburn and the firm began to grow with the recruitment of Henry Clothier. Clothier helped them develop large switchgears for power stations, a product the company became famous for. Over the years, Reyrolle continued to grow, seeing a number of mergers. Most notably with C.A Parsons in 1968 and Rolls Royce in 1989. The Hebburn site is now owned by Siemens who acquired the company in 2005. This photograph shows construction at A.Reyrolle & Co. Ltd in Hebburn on 25 May 1919. If you have some extra information about this photograph, please add your comments, information and any links, images or text.

Derelict building - possibly the Seahorse Inn at Twofold Bay Boydtown, NSW
Description: This photograph is part of the Australian National Maritime Museum's collection of nitrate negatives taken by Harold Nossiter and his son Harold Nossiter Junior in the 1920s and 1930s. Harold Nossiter (senior) was a noted Sydney sailor in the 1920s and 1930s who became the first Australian to skipper a yacht around the world under an Australian flag. The images in the collection depict the people, places and vessels encountered by the Nossiter family as they sailed on yachts UTIEKAH II along the NSW coast, and SIRIUS during the world cruise. This photo is thought to have been taken on one of Harold Nossiter's UTIEKAH II cruises to Twofold Bay and the town of Boydtown, New South Wales in 1929. The Australian National Maritime Museum undertakes research and accepts public comments that enhance the information we hold about images in our collection. If you can identify a person, vessel or landmark, write the details in the Comments box below. Thank you for helping caption this important historical image. Object no. 00014115

Main Street North, Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry
Description: Where better to go on a Friday than the Kingdom of Kerry, Cahirciveen to be precise. We are right on the Wild Atlantic Way and I bet all of the people we see in this photo would be fascinated by the whole concept of it! As today's commentators have noted, the same view today is almost identical - except for the cars of course - with most the buildings surviving. The StreetView car didn't pass on a market day however - as French may have done at the turn of the century (as hinted by the bustle in the town).... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though likely c.1902-1910 (owing to church and library) NLI Ref: L_CAB_08433 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Lady Louise's Bridge, Lismore, Co. Waterford
Description: Today we have a very pleasant landscape from Waterford. I know Lismore is famous for the Munster Blackwater, but this river seems far too small to be it? All details on Lady Louise will also be very welcome. With thanks especially to Jan Hilbrand Brink, Bernard Healy and beachcomberaustralia we've learned that Lady Louisa Caroline Cavendish (1835-1907) was the eldest daughter of the 7th Duke of Devonshire, whose family had acquired Lismore Castle in the 18th century. Lady Louisa apparently took over the household at a young age, and was responsible for laying out a number of walks around the demesne - clearly including the one that crossed this footbridge. O Mac and Niall McAuley have pinpointed it to within a mile or so of Lismore Castle - although now only the stone or concrete abutments remain...

Trinity College, Botany Bay, Dublin City
Description: I have never heard of "Botany Bay" in the context of Trinity College. Of course the real Botany Bay holds an important position in Irish history - more for transportation of convicts rather than anything to do with its botanic beauty. I wonder how and when this square obtained its name? .... "Asked and answered" as they say. Beachcomberaustralia sourced an amazing "letter to the editor" entry from an 1875 edition of the Australian Town and Country Journal. Which offers an entertaining answer to the question. The story goes that this area of the college was prone to flooding (and worse). And students would throw undesirable visitors into the quagmire. As a type of punishment - which "some wag" likened to transporting undesirables to Botany Bay in what were then the penal colonies....

Bryansford House, Newcastle, Co. Down
Description: For a dull and wet Thursday morning in Dublin we head up to the "Wee North" today to gather some sunshine in Newcastle! Bryansford House looks like a significant pile with a certain symmetry to its frontage suggesting - almost- a semi-detached building? We learned that this house was the main estate house at Tollymore Park demense - now an NI state forest park of the same name. Originally built for James Hamilton, Earl Clanbrassil in the 1730s, it was the family seat for several generations of the Earls of Roden, who developed the estate lands. The house itself fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1952. The estate, its forest, follies, barns and bridges (some of which we have visited before) thankfully survive....

Renmore Barracks, Galway City - once home to the Connaught Rangers.
Description: The home station of the Connaught Rangers Regiment of the British Army is today's image from the Lawrence Collection. Once a proud and distinguished regiment with many battle honours, it became famous in the Irish context when members of the regiment mutinied in response to the 1916 uprising and the subsequent execution of the leaders. While the StreetView driver wasn't brave enough to approach the guard gate, the view from the road outside still matches-up. The NIAH entries provided by Niall McAuley (on the magazine and church) suggest c.1880 as the lower-bound for the image date range. And maybe even an upper-bound not long after (as everything does look spanking new).... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

The folks that live on the hill - in Renny, Co. Cork
Description: I'm not sure where "Renny" is, but it seems an ideal situation for a farmstead that might fear attack from the natives. Water in plentiful supply, trees and grass aplenty and a high stance for lookout and defence. If all comes to all they could throw themselves off the cliff rather than surrender? I would love to see the view from the top windows... And, the consensus is that I won't see the view - not from those windows anyway. As, based on today's inputs, we have added this to our "no longer standing" album. While perhaps not 100% cut and dried (and not helped by apparently conflicting labels in the catalogue) the pervailing wisdom is that this is/was the house or castle at Renny, on the River Blackwater in County Cork. Apparently once associated with the family of Edmund Spenser, it was demolished by the Earl of Listowel before c.1900.

Slums, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: You would have to class this as an atypical Lawrence shot, we see very little interest in the camera or the photographer. I notice that the photo is labeled Brown Street, a street which is not immediately familiar to me. I suspect that we will find that not many of the buildings we see have survived over the last 100 years, or have they? As per the 2014 Streetview, and the incredible insights from today's contributors, only the leftmost building seems to remain. According to the NIAH entry it was once a 'Female Penitent Asylum'. While 'slum' seems a tad harsh to modern ears, this part of Dublin mixed industrial with residential - in a way that zoning laws might preclude today. For example, within 2 streets of this image were multiple tanneries, a piggery, glue works, maltings, and a fertilizer works. And, per the comments below, a 'house of ill-fame' :) ....

Lady's Island, Co. Wexford
Description: Believe it or not this photo was selected because it was felt that it would sit well in our "Focus on our Photographers" album. I will leave it up to you to discover the reason for its inclusion. As a bonus we have a lovely photo of Lady's Island. As quickly spotted by beachcomberaustralia, Niall McAuley and others, this image of the village and church of Lady's Island (at least partially through the gate arch of Lady's Island Castle) includes pieces of photographic kit in the right foreground. If the spare lens didn't give it away, as Niall points-out, we've seen this box a few times before. On this occasion it has followed French to the site of a(nother) holy well on Lady's Island Lake...

Lucan steam train
Description: This photograph reminds me of a painting by Jack B. Yeats titled "In the Tram" I have also seen it described as "In the Lucan Tram" and "The Merry Wives of Lucan" The painting is owned by our near neighbours the National Gallery of Ireland. Here is a link to their catalogue: ‘The tram was full and she had to sit on the little stool at the end of the car, facing all the people, with her toes barely touching the floor.’ Clay, p.115* Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Between ca. 1880-1900 NLI Ref: L_CAB_04955 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Viscount FitzGibbon who fell at the
Description: We may have visited this scene before if not this photograph. A fine glass plate from the Eason Collection of Viscount Fitzgibbon which stood opposite Shannon Rowing Club on Sarsfields Bridge over the river Shannon! I am curious to know what that stack/chimney is to the left rere of the statue?... Though we've seen this statue before (from other angles), this vantage gives us a better view of the plaque. It reads: "To commemorate the bravery of / Viscount Fitzgibbon / 8th Royal Irish Hussars / & of his gallant companions in arms / natives of the county & city of limerick / who glouriously fell in the Crimean War". As per the various contributions, Fitzgibbon was reported 'missing presumed dead' during the Charge of the Light Brigade, seemingly inspiring Rudyard Kipling’s short story ‘The Man Who Was’. The statue was blown-up by the IRA in 1930, and a monument to the events of 1916 later placed on the plinth. The cannon are still apparently outside the Harbour Master's office...

Description: Another stereo pair image in single format for better viewing! This fine building defended by two unworkable cannon on high plinths looks very impressive and imposing whereever it may be. A nice way to end the week! Rory Sherlock quickly identified this as Tralee Courthouse, and we learned that the cannon were dedicated to local men who took part in decidedly non-local battles. There's a firm suggestion that this image dates to after 1871, when the commemorative plaques were changed.....

Marconi Calling
Description: Marconi Station Clifden, Connemara I received a lovely gift of a biography on Marconi at Christmas. The book by Marc Raboy is subtitled "The man who networked the world". What an interesting man he was, I was surprised to learn about his Irish roots and connections. He was as famous in his time as any of today's technology leaders. Today's inputs confirmed just how historically important this relatively remote patch of bog-land was. From the Alcock and Brown transatlantic flight of 1919, to the Marconi station which opened in 1907. The video offered by beachcomberaustralia (something of a distant Marconi rellie), and the map offered by DannyM8 give us sense of the immense scale of the buildings and telegraph pole structures in the rearground of this shot. Something which is hard to fathom given the rural nature of Bill Bartlett's contemporary image from almost the same spot..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely c.1907-1914 (based on station's inauguration date of Oct 1907).

Another day, another 'institution', Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow.
Description: A fairly typical manor house in rural Ireland is described as being "another Institution" in these archives! Given the way these things went when families were unable to pay for the upkeep of these houses and the countryside had become less welcoming the chances are that what was once a family home was snapped up by a religious order for - an Institution! But where is it and what was it used for? Sharon.corbet quickly answered the first (where?) part of our question, identifying this as Fortgranite House, County Wicklow. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] followed-up with an answer to the second (what?) part of our question. And advised that this probably wasn't an 'institution' when photographed, but the home of the Dennis family, who seem to have had an extensive military tradition in the family...

Croagh Patrick, Westport, Co. Mayo and a whole lot more.
Description: Down the Wesht today to Co.Mayo, God help us, with a distant view of Irelands Holy Mountain and a whole lot more! This lovely Royal sized glass plate has some excellent detail on the coastal location, with mixed rolling stock on a railway siding to add to the interest. We may not have a dog, but we do have a horse in this landscape - otherwise largely empty of signs of life. While today's contributors have identified several of the buildings visible between Westport Harbour and Croagh Patrick (including the bridge to Rossbeg and some of the larger houses on the landform), they all date to the early 19th century. And so are not much help in dating the image. The general consensus though is that the Midland Great Western Railway rolling-stock in the foreground probably dates to the latter-half of the date range. Perhaps more likely to be c.1900 than mid-19th century.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely latter half of this range.

But where's the Recess?
Description: This beautiful landscape of Lough Inagh in Connemara in cabinet size by Lawrence is todays image! I always wondered about the name 'Recess' and where it came from. Perhaps today we might learn more? While we didn't learn anything about the origin of 'Recess' (a town about 7km from this spot), we did learn that this spot is just as picturesque today.

Stereo view of tennis court with a doubles match taking place, large house in the background
Description: Apologies for the delay in posting this morning! This image had me fooled, as if I needed it, as I took it to be from the "Stereo Pairs" collection. It is, as you can see, from the Clonbrock Collection and possibly taken by the uncle in the bowler hat we had on here some time ago. Is it FitzWilliam? With thanks to O Mac (corrberated by sharon.corbet, Niall McAuley and guliolopez) it is confirmed that this scene was captured at Ailesbury Road in Dublin. At the time of this image (likely within a decade or so of the turn of the 20th century), it was home to the Meldon family. Who lived at No.31 during the 1911 census. Some of the Meldon family were, as we see here, keen tennis players. And indeed Louis Albert Meldon went on contest the Davis Cup for Ireland more than once. While Ailesbury Road is still very much one of the country's most desirable addresses (the capital's "embassy row" and 2nd most expensive Monopoly square, where every square yard is worth a fortune), evidence of these tennis courts seems to remain.... Contributors: Luke Gerald Dillon, Augusta Caroline Dillon Collection: Clonbrock photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1930. Perhaps close to middle of that range.

A fine set of fetlocks: Commissioned by Mr. T. Widger
Description: The full title on this is "Meet at Gracedieu(?) - commissioned by Mr. T. Widger". Maybe Mr. Widger rode to the hunt, and perhaps wanted an image of both he and his steed recorded for posterity(?) It certainly is a fine shot of the pair, and there appears to be a "Big House" in the background. There is an area in Waterford called Gracedieu but was that named after a house or vice versa? It does sound familiar.... The consensus is that this is a member of the Widger family from Waterford. Pretty much all of whom (of working-age) were recorded in the 1911 census as horse-dealers or trainers. The suggestion is that Poole captured this image at Grace Dieu estate, a short distance south of Waterford, and which we have visited before. Based on similar images in the catalogue, and the fashions visible, it seems likely this dates to the first decade or so of the 20th century.... Photographer: A. H.

Make sure to take my best side?
Description: The Duchess of St. Albans and her guests pose in the garden for Mr. Poole. And it seems a number of the party are careful to show their best sides to the camera! I suspect that the dress and hairstyles will make this a relatively easy shot to date. But how about naming the participants? Have a great weekend everybody! While we don't have names (yet) for the other guests, the lady of the house and commissioner of the image (presumed to be the seated lady with the larger hat) was Grace Bernal-Osborne, Duchess of Saint Albans (c.1846-1926). There's a suggestion that her husband, the 10th Duke of Saint Albans, is not pictured. WIth consensus that the image was likely captured at Newtown Anner House, outside Clonmel, County Tipperary. Probably in around the 1900s. But certainly not after the 1920s. Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954.

Sunshine, shadows, leafy trees and a fountain in Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
Description: In what appears to be a lovely sunny afternoon in Blessington, when the photographer captures a beautiful image of the Market Hall and Monument/Fountain. This is a beautiful area - some of which has been changed completely when a nearby valley was flooded to provide water and power to the nearby Dublin region! Apart from the "missing belfry" that [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] noted, some of the discussion today was on how recognisable the same scene is today. Also noted was that the local names of the monument and fountain seem to vary - with most sources refering to it as the "Downshire Monument", at at least some as the "Boyle Monument". Whatever the proper title, it seems likely this view of the monument and market house was captured in the first-half (rather than latter-half) of the 1900s-1930s range....

Traffic Jam in Main Street, Delgany, Co. Wicklow
Description: This Lawrence image of Main Street, Delgany is in considerable contrast to today's reality. This was taken when it was a tiny village, the centre of a rural community with few people, and when three horses and carts could constitute a traffic jam. Today all that has changed, and Delgany is a desired address and almost a commuter town to Ireland's capital city. (PS: Dog Alert Klaxon! :) ) While location and subject were pretty clear, with thanks in particular today to Niall McAuley (and corroberation from others), it seems likely that this image was taken around the turn of the 20th century. Perhaps c.1901. When the census records that Annie Long and her daughter Eveline ran the post office. With a firm suggestion that French has captured the postmistress and her postal assistant at the post office doorway (centre middleground). However, who and what the lads with the fish are up-to (left middleground) is anyone's guess :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Description: Though the catalogue description implies this classical style building was in Limerick City, this Stereo Pairs image is going to take some identifying! Because, it is certainly not the railway station in Limerick City, nor any other railway station that I know of. And so we are left with the question(s): what and where is it, and is it still standing? And we got our answer - very quickly - when Oretani Wildlife (Mike Grimes) identified this as Armagh Courthouse. And, despite a bombing in the 1990s (which seemingly shifted one of the columns "back a full 9 inches"), it is still standing...

Description: I've been in Dublin for a long time now but this is not a castle or ruins that I am familiar with. It looks like it was a significant establishment in its day and would be a real attraction today(?) I look forward with interest to what you may be able to find about this... .... And the reason it didn't look familiar (as a castle in or near Dublin) is that it is neither. It is not a castle - but an abbey. And is not in/near Dublin - but more than 30 miles from the capital in Bective, County Meath. The cataloguer may be forgiven however, as the abbey's "castle-like qualities" were seemingly why it was used as a filming-location for 'Braveheart' in the 1990s. Without Mel Gibson peering from a window however, dating may be difficult - not least given how remarkably little has changed in the 100 or so years since this image was captured :) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: c.1900-1939 (possibly after c.1915 when some works were undertaken at the site) NLI Ref: EAS_1727 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

General View, Bruckless, Co. Donegal
Description: This is the second time in recent weeks that Bruckless has been mentioned on this stream! This fine Royal sized plate taken by Mr. French shows the remote rural area of the time in fine detail. The other passenger on the jaunting car does not look in the least pleased at having to wait until the photographer has finished :-) As today's contributors have pointed-out, the "other passenger" is a presumed member of the Lawrence/French entourage. We nicknamed him Jaunty in a previous discussion, and though not especially jaunty or animated here, his presence suggests a date in the late 1880s. (As at least some other images captured during the same "trip" were dated to c.1887). The other main topic of discussion today was on the two larger buildings visible - with [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] identifying them as Bruckless Hall, tannery and Bruckless House. (Though the latter remains, the more central functional-looking building has since been demolished and replaced....)

Old Church, Co. Galway?
Description: An iconic if pooly captioned(?) image from the Lawrence Collection today. Galway is famous for many things and the window in the foreground is one of those, perhaps even more than the beautiful church in the background? And so today's discussion reflected the two main visible subjects: "Lynch's Window" to the foreground, and the Church of St Nicholas to the rear. The latter has captured our attention before - with today's discussion focusing on how the lack of a clock in the tower helps date the image to before 1898. The former, Lynch's Window, we hadn't previously discussed (despite practically gazing through it a year or so ago :) ). While the inscription below the window reflects a local legend (of a 15th century magistrate who prioritised loyalty to law and city over loyalty to family - and hung his own son), it could well be a folly of it's day. The suggestion being that the window and structure surrounding it were built of otherwise unrelated architectural fragments in the early 19th century. Whether the story or the structure are 15th century truths or 19th century follies, we're absolutely delighted that both remain part of the fabric of such a vibrant and historic city.....

Woof, woof, woof!  Friday's child is loving and giving!
Description: No, Morning Mary has not gone barking mad! Mr. Poole's generosity in providing three dogs in full living detail just made her feeling like a good roll in the grass! The Poole collection really does have some fine shots with people and animals therein and this is no exception. The ladies with their dogs on the front porch of the family pile look very relaxed and provide a happy scene to end the week! And while we focused somewhat in the canines in the description, it was (quite rightly) the humans who captured the attention in today's discussion. Beachcomberaustralia, sharon.corbet and Niall McAuley point out that the ladies from the catalogue title ("Miss Malcomson and Lady Clodagh on steps") are likely Lady Clodagh Beresford (daughter of 5th Marquess of Waterford), and a member of the Malcomson family (who had shipyards and mills in Waterford at the turn of the 20th century). Niall McAuley tells us that Lady Clodagh (1879-1957) actually popularised the name Clodagh (there were few to no girls with the given name of "Clodagh" in the country prior). Sticking with the "Clodagh" theme, Niall and O Mac offer pretty firm evidence that this image was captured at Clodagh House in Portlaw, County Waterford, where the Malcomson's lived.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Likely very early in that range.

Chains, corner boys and a rookery?
Description: This unusual church at Monkstown, County Dublin is beautifully captured by Mr. French in this shot. The swinger on the chains, the sitter on the wall and the seeming flock of rooks fluttering above would perhaps appear to suggest a warm summers day? I've passed it many times and wondered at the strange architecture - but put it down to eccentric 19th century tastes... After some of the "changed utterly" images of late, it's delightful to note that this view had hardly changed by the 21st century Google street view. Our 19th century French street view probably dates to the late 1880s or 1890s (not least as, as Niall McAuley tells us, the spire was completed in the early 1880s.

Howth Castle, Library, Howth, Co. Dublin
Description: It is a bit late for National Book Day which fell in the past week, but for those who love books every day is National Book Day! This castle is a source of great fascination and a fine attraction in a beautiful location! I could imagine many happy days spent reading through the collection on display.... ...And indeed today's eagle-eyes were trained on the bookshelves, spotting 19th century books on farming and animal husbandry. However, it is the shelves and the walls themselves that help us date this photograph. As it seems that this part of Howth Castle was built to designs of architect Edwin Lutyens in 1910/1911. And so this image dates to no earlier than 1911 - and possibly a few years after it. We also learned from today's contributors (and indeed saw for ourselves) that the room is largely as was 100 years hence, and that the St Lawrence/Gaisford family (whose ancestor's trunk is visible here) still call the castle their home.... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939.

Crusader, XIII Century, Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny
Description: From long gone golf clubs, to long gone glory hunters in Graiguenamanagh, County Kilkenny. This fine stone effigy, with superb detail, looks like an interesting subject for a day in which the rain is belting down (at least here in Dublin)! And so we learned that this effigy was (and still is) at the doorway to Duiske Abbey in Graiguenamanagh. We also learned that, while the "crusader" description arose from the cross-legged stance of these types of medieval reliefs, later research suggests that the stance doesn't neccesarily denote a crusader specifically. Whether crusader or not, this depiction of a 13th century knight could perhaps capture William Marshall, the Anglo-Norman knight who founded the abbey in 1204. Or maybe another local, Alan Beg, who offered significant tithes in exchange for a burial at the abbey....

Road near Botanic Gardens (Finglas Golf Club), Glasnevin, Co. Dublin
Description: From yesterdays funeral in "God Knows Where" to today's location close to Irelands best known cemetery! If ever there was a location that has "changed, changed utterly" then this surely is it! Finglas Golf Club is no more, the roads and byroads for miles around have been altered beyond recognition. So I perhaps the first to the OSI will tell us where this is? Before we went to the OSI however, a few spotted this similar location hunt on the Glasnevin Heritage FB page. This suggested that the golf course stretched perhaps from Bellevue (off the Tolka Valley Road) to the area of Finglas now occupied by Fairways Estate (which most likely took its name from the course). The general consensus seems to be that we are looking south - with our back to Finglas and looking roughly towards the city. The clubhouse, cottage (left middleground) and sandpit (right middleground) - all now long long gone - were likely those captured in the 1907 OSI 25" map on the Finglas Road. We also learned of some interesting connections to Taoiseach John A Costello, and events of Easter week 1916....

Inver, Co. Donegal - Introducing Jaunty?
Description: While searching our catalogue for suitable photographs to share on this stream, I came across this one. Nothing exceptional I hear you say! But then I had a look at: General View, Bruckless, General View, Fintragh and Church, Killaghtee, all in Donegal. These photos got me thinking, I hope they get you thinking too.... .... And so it seems that "great minds" think alike. The general consensus is that this image (and more than a few others in the Lawrence series) probably captures members of a Lawrence studio "crew". Comprising a jaunting car driver (who seems to change from time to time), almost certainly an assistant (the younger man in the bowler), and perhaps Robert French himself (behind the camera and hence not captured here). The man presumed to be the assistant, and who was quickly nicknamed "Jaunty" today (for his attire and near ubiquitous presence on/near the jaunting car), has since been spotted in a dozen or so Lawrence images. To the extent that we're a little surprised we hadn't spotted him before :) Thanks to mcginley2012, we also learned today that the actual titular subject of the image (Inver Bridge) was washed away in the 1960s. A modern roadbridge now carries the N56 over this stretch of the Eany....

Rev. Cornelius Claffey, at church entrance, full-length portrait
Description: To welcome the new week we have a portrait from the Keogh Collection. This intriguing ecclesiastic capture begs a number of questions all of which I am confident that you will answer! Who was Rev Claffey? Which Church is this? Any idea of the occasion? And our faith (sorry) in getting some answers was well founded. The general concensus is that this is Dom Camillus Claffey, who was abbot of the Cistercian Mount St Joseph Abbey (near Roscrea) from 1944 to 1962. This gives us a very likely subject, possible location, and at least some pause on the catalogue date range. In a veritible "whos/who and whats/what" of eccelisiastical matters and dress, Bernard Healy suggests that this image captures a relatively important occasion or high-mass. Perhaps even the abott's own pontificaliacation, enhattification, inauguration, benediction, or "promotion" into abbot-hood. Maybe taken therefore in 1944. Or taken perhaps just prior (at the monastery), if taken while he was just 'Prior' (of the monastery). Photographer: Brendan Keogh Collection: Keogh Photographic Collection Date: c.1930-1940.

Description: A street in Dublin City? While this is what the catalogue says, I really don't think so! But, if not Dublin, then where is it or even where was it? A busy hilly street somewhere in Ireland, where a Taoiseach might meet a man in a pub with a pint in each hand? At least they had the electric so dating may not be too hard... ... And we have confirmation that indeed this isn't Dublin, but Ludlow Street in Navan, County Meath. Derangedlemur very quickly set us straight, and while his explanation (that he's "memorised all of Google StreetView") was probably intended as a joke, sometimes I do wonder :) Beachcomber reminds us that we have previously seen other Eason photos of Navan similarly mislabelled - something to look out for in future...

Wolf's Arch, Kilkenny City, Co. Kilkenny
Description: From the childish charm of Monday to the rustic history of Tuesday! This building in Kilkenny is a very distinctive, and captured in a particularly fine image, with good detail of the arch and adjacent buildings. It looks like early in the day to me, but there are no dogs in evidence and as the old motto goes "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun"! Thanks to fantastic inputs on this image (including from B-59, Niall McAuley, beachcomberaustralia, O Mac, and guliolopez), we learned a lot more about the subject and date. It is confirmed that this is Rothe House, a late-16th century townhouse in Kilkenny's medieval centre. Built by the merchant Rothe family, there's strong evidence that it was captured in this Lawrence/French image early in the catalogue range - probably the 1860s. The strongest evidence of this (apart from the dress and marvelous mutton-chops of the chaps standing unironically outside the barbers) is the poster beside the arch. The poster advertises a "lecture" in "Electro-Biology and Phrenology" - both common to a branch of practiced "sciences" which were fashionable in the 1850s and 1860s. As part-alternative medicine and part-entertainment... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

There's a hairy ass fair in the County Clare
Description: Kilkee in Co. Clare rather than Spancil Hill, but lots of asses/donkeys on display! A favourite holiday resort for people from Limerick City and others, it has a beautiful crescent beach with sparkling blue waters and pleasant walks. In this shot it seems as if there is a market or fair in operation - or perhaps it is the donkey rides getting ready for the season? The community's general feeling is that it's the latter, and (based on the buildings visible and not visible) a view of the tourist season perhaps in the 1880s....

Boyne Valley: Lake House, Boyne Valley, Co. Louth
Description: This fine shot of two canal boats at the lock in a canal would seem appropriate to many counties. While County Louth may not seem the most obvious candidate, yet that is the caption on this lovely Lawrence image. The boats do not appear to be the usual goods vessels, but rather a towing engine and perhaps a pleasure craft? Can anybody enlighten Morning Mary, please? And enlightened I have been. The consensus is that these are touring pleasure craft on a stretch of the Boyne Navigation. Perhaps close to Rossnaree and Newgrange. While not "our" vessel, other similar steam launches seemingly carried tourists from Oldbridge (near Drogheda) to Slane in County Meath. Medea_ry advises that "our" launch may have been one of three named 'Shamrock', 'Tara' and 'Boyne', probably the latter....

Bellevue Conservatory, Delgany, Co. Wicklow
Description: A rival to the National Botanical Gardens in the heart of Wicklow? This fine series of glasshouses and conservatory seem to have a strikingly modern design to rival those of the Botanic Gardens! If they still exist what are/were they used for? Commercial or research? Native flowers or exotics? And who put them there? Happy Valentine's day to every one - may you have lots of chocolates, get loads of cards, and generally feel much love today! We got something of a Valentine's present ourselves - in the form of answers to nearly all questions: - Standing? No - the house/etc pulled down in the 1950s - Exotics? Yes - apparently "Many rare exotics" - Who?

Photography School
Description: An idyllic summer's day. Captured (not once but twice it seems) on the lawn at Ballinskelligs, I am intrigued by the two "barber shop" poles in the background. What were they for? Happy Fotografic Friday everybody! And so we learned that the beacons (as with much else in this image) are now no longer standing. However, they were likely warnings to vessels not to damage the undersea telegraph cable by dropping or dragging anchor nearby. We also learned that the Ballinskelligs cable station was operated by the Anglo-American Telegraph Company, and later by Western Union. It was closed in 1923. And (clearly) entirely demolished since then.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Westmoreland Street (looking to O'Connell Bridge, including a tram), Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: This lovely shot of Westmoreland Street from a high viewpoint is from the Eason Collection, and is todays offering. It even includes a tram, or so the cataloguer says, but I can see a couple of others nearer the bridge. No bazaars or arcades here - but lots of people and modes of transport! As location was already confirmed, much of the discussion (below) on this image centered on the date. The lower-end of the catalogue range (1900) seems about right - though Clery's and the Imperial Hotel signage in the distance might indicate a date after 1902. The upper-end of the range (1939) was definitively lowered - to 1916. As much of this streetscape (and not least the Dublin Bread Company building clearly visible) were destroyed during the events of Easter week 1916....

Bazaar, Blackrock, Co. Louth
Description: "Bazaar" a word much used in past years and seldom seen now! An ancient Persian name for an enclosed market, the Bazaar enabled the development of cities in the ancient world. An example in Blackrock therefore might lead to hopes that it would enable the development of a metropolis? Perhaps streetview might show us if it was a success? While the streetview offered during today's investigation doesn't imply a sprawling metropolis, it does confirm that the bazaar is still standing, and now a fruit and veg shop. As well as confirming the location and subject, today's contributors suggest a possible date range: using the visible penny periodicals to refine the five decade catalogue range to a decade or so c.1900. (Seemingly the "1d Pictorial Magazine" was first published c.1899, and the "Scraps Magazine" ceased publication in 1910). Whether the two chaps to the right are visiting the seaside from nearby Dundalk, members of the Casey family (proprieters and sub-postmasters) or just local photo-bombers, we may never know :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Admiralty Recreation Grounds, Castletownbere, Co. Cork
Description: It just isn't cricket, at the moment, with football pitches laid out at the Admiralty Recreation Grounds in Castletownberehaven, County Cork. Today, when the presence of the British fleet is hardly a memory, this ground must appear to be an anachronism. In its time however, it would have had plenty of players - with lots of crews and support staff to play and enjoy the bracing Atlantic air and the joys of football, cricket and other sports. Has it reverted to the wild since this was taken? beachcomberaustralia suggests (and others corroborate) that this image was captured at the Lawrence Cove recreation grounds on Bere Island. With the Lawrence Cove National School as the "robust" looking building on the left. While it seems that the lower-pitch (centre/middle-ground) has reverted somewhat to the wild, the upper-pitch (right/background) is still put to the same use.....

Description: This crisp and clear shot from the interior of the National Museum of Ireland from Lawrence for today. Four striking pieces of artillery tastefully arrayed among classical sculptures in a round room make for a beautiful display! With thanks for everyone's inputs today, it is confirmed that French captured this image across the way at our neighbour's rotunda, in the National Museum of Ireland. Sharon.corbet advises that these cannon were captured at the Battles of Sobraon or Mahrajpore during the Anglo-Sikh Wars.

Church, Interior Memorial, Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal
Description: A day to remember with a memorial in a church in Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal. At first sight the figures would appear to be police but other services also wore similar helmets at times. It is obviously a memorial to the fallen, as the "reversed" rifles is a sign of respect for the dead. Where is it and who does it commemorate? With thanks to today's contributors, it is confirmed that this image connects to the Tríd an Lionsa sequence we shared last year, and captures a memorial to an RIC inspector who died in events covered in an episode of that TV series. As noted by the guys below, District Inspector William Martin was killed in violent circumstances during the 1889 Land War, while attempting to arrest the "Patriot Priest" Fr James McFadden. The series of trials that followed were among the first in the country to use photographic evidence (evidence which seemingly persuaded the jury to a reduced sentence and plea bargain)....

Belfast Bank in Coleraine - an Oxymoron?
Description: Though the doors are shut, we're going to the bank today - in the hope that we will get (a) some old money and (b) goods at the prices that prevailed when this image was taken. The Belfast Bank in Coleraine was a substantial building. And, judging by the curtains on the first floor, the bank's manager lived in the building - as was the practice until relatively recently. Incredible detail was added on the main subject of this image, with a general consensus that the image dates to within a few years of the bank's completion between 1892 & 1894. As noted in the comments, the Belfast Bank was not limited to the province's principal city, with branches throughout the region. The Belfast Banking Company itself was seemingly founded in the 1820s and taken-over by Midland Bank, merging with the now more familiar Northern Bank in the 1970s....

Downshire Bridge and the Cut, Banbridge, Co. Down
Description: This lovely image of Banbridge seems to have all the hallmarks of a Robert French image but it is in the Eason Collection. Whoever the photographer was, he decided to do an Irish version of the "Hay Wain" as that hay wain there is way overloaded! Does that give us at least a time of year if not an actual date? As the location was already confirmed, today's discussion focused on the subject and date. On the latter, inputs on the date from beachcomberaus (who reminds us that William Ritchie & Sons started publishing postcards like this from 1903), and Niall McAuley (who trawled more than a few street directories) have helped refine the range to a few years at the end of the first decade of the 20th century. On the subject, [https:[email protected]] and [https:[email protected]] illustrate that "the cut" was a 19th century engineering project - to help horse-drawn traffic through the town. At least some of which was of clearly overfilled carts :) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939.

Bridge and Stronghold - The following plates are not lettered and therefore not authentic, Athy, Co. Kerry
Description: This fine shot of the bridge and stronghold at Athy is from the Eason Collection.

As today's commenters note, we've visited the delightfully named Cromaboo Bridge and White's Castle each previously. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] suggests that (based on the ivy growth on the castle, and possibly coroberated by the fashions visible on the megazoom[tm]) today's image may predate the previously shared image of White's Castle - which was proposed to date to the 1920s or later....

General Post Office, O'Connell Street, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Trams, trams and more trams, the GPO, the Metropole and O'Connell Street from the Clery's side makes an interesting shot for this Thursday Friday. The frieze on the top of the GPO looks different, so we thought perhaps this was taken before the Rising. Not so apparently per comments below. As this will likely be our last posting in 2016 (the centenary/anniversary year of the 1916 Rising) we thought this an appropriate one to close the year with. Thanks all! Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: c.1900-1939 (Though after 1920s per comments. And possibly c.1928) NLI Ref: EAS_1743 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Deja Vu?
Description: While I believe that this scene was visited before, I think it was not in the Stereo Pairs format nor was it of this quality! This outstanding image with so much going on is always worth a second visit. And so it was confirmed that we've visited this spot on Devonshire/Grattan Square in Dungarvan previously. Not just once in fact, but twice before - once on a much busier day with French/Lawrence, and once with our left-eye closed to the STP. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] points-out however, with both eyes open, and the Megazoom version now available, additional detail might come to light. With [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] for example spotting mention of Thomas McCarthy on one of the posters - and identifying some likely candidates...

A whole lot of bull!
Description: In line with the many terrible puns scattered about like cow manure yesterday, we have the real thing today - a bull! While he is clearly a handsome beast with a fine set of horns, at the end of the day, he is just another married man with a ring controlling him. Whether the Mr Glennine (or Glennie) who commissioned this Poole shot is the man in the bowler or not, as sharon.corbet suggests, it seems he was "land steward" at the Curraghmore Estate in the 1900s/1910s. Niall McAuley tells us that Curraghmore house and estate (which we have visited before and to which we've mapped this image) is still in the De Poer family. [https:[email protected]] provides some more information on the house and family in the comments below.... Photographer: A. H.
