Central Yiddish School Organization_Central Secretary Vilna
Description: In 1921 the Central Yiddish School Organization (Tsentrale Yidishe Shul Organizatsye – often known by the acronym TSYSHO) was founded in Warsaw to advance and administrate a network of secular Yiddish schools. As numerous founders of the TSYSHO were affiliated with the Jewish Labor Bund and left Poalei Zion the schools were home to a blend of Yiddish culture and socialist politics. While the central office for TSYSHO was in Warsaw, the central education committee was in Vilna (as this stamp attests) – and the TSYSHO schools in Vilna tended to be less overtly political than the schools in Poland. TSYSHO was not simply involved in advocated for and promoting Yiddish education, the organization was a strong force in the development of such education which TSYSHO achieved by devising curriculums, publishing textbooks as well as relevant journals, training teachers, and hosting conferences. The curriculum involved a mixture of subjects that one would expect to find at standard public schools, though TSYSHO schools also emphasized Jewish history and culture – with all classes being taught in Yiddish. With the onset of the Second World War many teachers affiliated with TSYSHO in Poland fled east to Lithuania where they enjoyed a temporary continuation of their projects in the TSYSHO branches in Vilna; however, the Soviet annexation of Lithuania in 1940 brought TSYSHO’s activities to an abrupt end – though many of the teachers involved went on to participate in underground educational activities, including in the ghettoes. The ignominious end to the TSYSHO schools which began under the Soviets was furthered with violent effect by the Nazis. 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.

21 June 1919
Description: TWAM Ref: TWCMS:M4414 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 21 June 1919. If you have some extra information about this photograph, please add your comments, information and any links, images or text.

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 first-half of 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. And, if it were the late 1890s/1900s, we might expect to see the tram lines/wires visible in similar images dating from that later period). Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Probably c.1880s-90s.

Harbour, Queenstown, Co. Cork
Description: This Lawrence Cabinet sized glass plate shows a great view of Queenstown Harbour with Spike Island, a corner of Haulbowline and the Royal Yacht (I think?) on a fine clear day! Should it be the Royal Yacht then dating the image should be relatively easy? As it happens though, dating this image hasn't been as easy as we'd imagined. Firstly, we learned that this isn't the Royal Yacht at all - but the battleship HMS Howe. As the HMS Howe was a "port guardship" in Cork Harbour from 1896-1901, we might surmise that this image dates that period in the late-1890s. However, there's a suggestion that we should also perhaps be able to see an early-1890s storage shed on Haulbowline (right middle-ground). While the absense of this shed might imply a slightly earlier visit, as we understand Howe had just two main guns until 1890 (and we clearly see four here), we're likely after that date.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Almost certainly 1890-1901. Likely mid-/late-1890s.

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....

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? Peter Shanley - for the estate of Peter La Touche - When? c.1796 - when it was the "largest conservatory in Europe" Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: c.1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_09902 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

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.... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Though certainly before Easter 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.....

Guns and Poses
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. While no longer displayed like this at the NMI Kildare St museum, Sharon tells us that one sits within the NMI Collins Barracks collection, and two others at McKee barracks near Phoenix Park....

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. I have deliberately included the title as shown because it raises questions and of course Athy is NOT in Co, Kerry! The staff at NLI include all information on a file as provided to them regardless of how inaccurate it may seem. When research clarifies the matter and they can include the correct information then they update the file and correct the error! 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....

Here is Lynch's Castle, Shop Street in Galway on what must have been a quiet day.

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.

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.

Health Offices, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: While this beautifully ornate building is familiar to me I would never have known it as the "Health Offices"! Finding it on Streetview shouldn't take too long in any event! And indeed B-59 had linked the Streetview in a flash - with details on the building itself quick to follow. As per the various notes in the comments, this building (formerly the Newcomen Bank) would be known to most Dubliners as the city Rates Office (rather than the Health Office it clearly was at the time of this image). The original bank building was to the left, with an entrance on Castle Street. First opened in the 1780s, it was significantly extended in 1856 and 1884 - with an entire new double frontage added as we see here on Cork Hill. While this certainly dates from after the 1880s remodeling, we are still hopeful of refining the date further (possibly if we can find out when building's use changed from municipal health office, and to the rates office it is known as today....) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though certainly after 1886, and possibly before c.1899.

Holy Well, Slieve League, Co. Donegal
Description: From the commerce of Portadown to the faith and the cure in Slieve League, Co. Donegal! This fine shot of a group at a Holy Well seems to show two locals offering a passing tourist a drink of water from the well. The dress of the tourist and the items laid down beside him would indicate that he may have been hiking. And the solid and hob nailed boots of the man at the front of the well might show that he is a guide rather than a keeper of the well(?) Thanks to today's contributors we're able to map this to the paths of Slieve League - if not perhaps the exact spot. Inputs from beachcomberaustralia offer some thoughts on the scene (and that the touristy looking chap may be a cyclist rather than a dedicated hiker). Beachcomber shares an extract from an 1897 tourist visit to the area. And points out that other sights mentioned in that extract are also covered in the catalogue - suggesting that perhaps the areas wasn't quite as remote and untouristed as we might first have imagined:   The whole forenoon should be devoted to exploring the cliff scenery of Slieve League. A cycle can only be utilised for a few miles from the hotel, but a pony can be hired for 5s, which sum is the charge for a guide also [...] The "One Man's Path," near the summit of Slieve League, is a trip for the strong nerved [...] The saint's cross, his bed, and his well can be seen; and many quaint legends gathered [...] - Clarence and Richmond Examiner, NSW, September 1897 Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date:between ca. 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_01466 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

High Street, Portadown
Description: Up to the "wee North" today with a fine Lawrence shot of High Street in Portadown. A fine broad street, big well-built premises, gas lamps, and horse apples in abundance - all might mean this was late 1800s...? ....Or perhaps not the late 1800s after-all. Thanks to today's contributions (and the high-res megazoom version) the community's eagle-eyes spotted an apparently dated shop-window display suggesting a date of 1906. Niall McAuley's census and street-directory investigations would seem to corroberate this - as Hoy's boot-sellers (far left) seem to have left Portadown sometime between 1901 and 1910. Perhaps the "cheap boots sale" we see advertised was actually a closing/relocation sale? Courtney (the "Italian Warehouseman"?) seems to have been around for a few years after this image. And is it no wonder he did a busy trade, given that (as advertised) he always had "pickles in stock"! :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Emigrants leaving. Scotts Quay, Queenstown
Description: The "American Wake" is just a memory as the emigrants take to the tenders so that they may be transported to the liner that will carry them to the brave new world of opportunity. What mixture of excitement, sadness, anticipation and hope must have filled this scene as it was photographer by Robert French? We, today, can only imagine the sense of finality and loss that scenes such as this represented back when this was taken! There's lots of information offered on the pier and tenders captured here - and more than a little refinement on the 20-year range suggested by the catalogue entry. On the pier, today's contributors point-out that it is still standing (just about) and was the departure point for White Star Line passengers. We see three passenger/luggage/mail tenders at the wharf. Though at least one is flying the flag of the the White Star Line, these steam tenders belonged to the port. The tenders are confirmed as "Ireland" (launched 1891), "Flying Fish" (launched 1886), and one other. This helps narrow the range to the 1890s (or possibly first few years of the 1900s). The "Ireland" seemingly tendered passengers of the Titanic, and the "Flying Fish" was involved in rescuing survivors of the Luisitania disaster - making the colloquial name of the wharf, "Heartbreak Pier", all the more poignant....

Town or village with church tower visible in the distance... is Enniskerry, Co Wicklow
Description: A rare visit to the Clonbrock collection with a beautiful sylvan scene of a town or village and in the background a spire and a pointy (Technical term) mountain. The fencing along the paddock makes me wonder if this is in Ireland... And (despite our thoughts on the somewhat "un-Irish" looking fencing), it was established fairly quickly by derangedlemur, sharon.corbet and B-59 that this Ireland. And the hills of County Wicklow specifically. The clock tower in the square of Enniskerry village has been highlighted by Dún Laoghaire Micheál, and the church spire of St Patrick's church also stands out. As the village has not changed much, and largely owes it's layout to developments in the first-half of the 19th century, we haven't been able to refine the date range significantly.

Waiting for the coming?
Description: While the image is entitled "Examination Hall, Mount Melleray", what is really interesting is the stance of the monks and other men along the avenue. They seem to be waiting on an arrival - but of what or whom?? Based on input from RorySherlock and Niall McAuley, we are happy to map this to the location of the (now demolished) exam hall of the Mount Melleray abbey and seminary. Niall McAuley and sharon.corbet also help us refine the date range - narrowing the 5 decade catalogue range to perhaps 2 decades or so around the 1870s/80s. On the subject, we're still unsure as to what's happening. However, as today's commentators point-out, there is more than a few similar examples in the collection. Perhaps indicating that this seemingly odd arrangement of subjects wasn't a "one off". And maybe therefore what's captured here is a routine monastic observance of some kind..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though likely in the first half of this range (perhaps 1870s/1880s). See comments.

Town Hall, Kingstown
Description: An unusual shot from Robert French in that the POV of the subject matter is so limited and obstructed by other buildings. How much has changed in the intervening period and when was this likely to have been taken? Though the titular subject of the image is the town hall in Kingstown, now Dún Laoghaire. much of today's discussion was on the Pavilion Gardens Kingstown in the foreground. This waterfront attraction (with its concert hall, roof top garden, smoking/reading/tea rooms, flower beds, waterfall, bandstand, and bowling green) was opened in 1903. Which pushes the upper date in our catalogue range back a little. It seems likely, based on today's discussion, that this image was captured a few years after the official opening - perhaps c.1905....

Gap of Dunloe, Mrs. Moriarty's, Killarney, Co. Kerry
Description: This fine shot of a cottage in the Gap of Dunloe for a frosty Tuesday morning. Riding up the Gap from here on a day like today would take away any cobwebs away and concentrate the mind. Robert French really could capture the atmosphere of a place and a time! As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and [https:[email protected]] suggest, this particular Moriarty cottage seems to have been around here. The guys point to the strong similarity in the rock-formations to the rear - and we have no reason to doubt it. It seems there were perhaps several Moriarty households in the area - and indeed we've met more than one Moriarty on our previous visits to the area. This Mrs Moriarty clearly served a burgeoning tourst trade - in a tradition which seemingly continues today...

Dáil Chamber silent and empty
Description: Until the advent of television, sights such as this were relatively rare, the inside of the national parliament was considered almost sacrosanct. Now the activity there is streamed live, relevant clips appear daily on the news channels and people are familiar with the appearance and décor. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] notes, the main parliament chamber at Leinster House was originally a lecture theatre leased from the Royal Dublin Society. It was bought outright for Dáil use, and redesigned in the mid-1920s (likely putting this image after that date)... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely after mid-1920s NLI Ref: EAS_1755 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Swiss Cottage?
Description: A funny looking house all cobbled together making what somebody thought was a Swiss Cottage? This fine, carefully posed photograph from Mr. Poole has a family showing off their finery and their toys! Their dress would indicate that the shot was taken earlier in the date range rather than later? Where is/was it and who were the lucky family? As usual, the answers weren't long coming. The "where" was confirmed as Swiss Cottage, Newtown Road, Waterford, and the "who" as the Fanning family. The "when" is less certain, but - despite the catalogue range - possibly a few years earlier than the 1901 census.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. But likely around or before 1901.

Mick McQuaid's Cabin, Connemara, Co. Galway
Description: Two poems immediately spring to mind when I look at this image but neither of them refers to Connemara. This beautiful scene may have cheered "Mick McQuaid" on a daily basis or perhaps due to the harshness of life in such a remote and poor area he did not even see it? I hope that he was able to sit with his pipe, smoking "Mick McQuaid" tobacco, contemplating the scene with a sense of peace and appreciation? And so we have learned from beachcomberaustralia and B-59 that the "Mick McQuaid" in question was fictional. Making this scene, as Niall McAuley suggests, something of a 19th century equivalent to the (nearby) "Quiet Man cottage". Mick McQuaid was a character developed by Captain William Lynam for a popular weekly serial - that was carried by newspapers for some decades from the 1860s. Seemingly, as per the summary which beachcomberaustralia shares in the comments, those who could not read would travel some distance to hear the latest installment. And such was the popularity of the character that, as well as inspiring tobacco branding, when Lynam died in 1894, the paper continued the serial - reaching new generations.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though possibly after 1895.

Close-up of doorway of large, cruciform, modern romanesque church (is Sligo Cathedral)
Description: A double image of a double door in a church somewhere in Ireland. Given the extreme age of the stereo pairs collection some of the images, such as this one, are remarkably clear and 'new' looking! Early collaboration from [https:[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] identified this as Sligo Cathedral. As the cathedral opened in 1874, it seems likely this image dates to the mid- or late-1870s at the earliest. As well as helping identify the subjects of the "high relief" work in the tympanum today's other eagle-eyed contributors point out that this image is actually mirrored from reality.... Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1883.

Mansion near Navan, Co Meath - is Boyne View House
Description: A mansion (that was perhaps converted into a convent?) near Navan in the lush plains of County Meath. It looks like a white house - on the day when the new occupant of "The White House" may be decided. Good luck to our friends in the USA and may you get a President who will be a source of unity and goodwill! In a near dictionary definition of "great minds think alike", guliolopez and sharon.corbet simultaneously identified (and Niall McAuley coorberated) that what we are looking at here is Boyne View House off Convent Road to the south of Navan. Built apparently around the 1820s, our interpid investigators have confirmed that the portico we see here was remodeled in recent decades - and the distinctive upper sunroom/orangery removed. We are delighted to hear however that the building itself still stands and seemingly retains much of its original form. The team further confirm that the Watkins family were in residence here for at least the first 2 or 3 decades of the 20th century, and may have been the householders when this Eason image was captured....

Spa Baths, Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare
Description: Happy smelly Monday as todays shot takes us to the beauty of West Clare, and the town of Lisdoonvarna - with its occasional reek of sulphur from the waters. This beautiful shot from the lens of Mr. French shows the bath houses in pristine condition, with many people there relaxing and enjoying themselves. (And congratulations to the Ireland team for their first ever victory against the mighty New Zealand All Blacks. Magnificent!) Lots of brilliant insights on this image in the comments. Including a reminder that we've followed the Victorian fashion and "taken the waters" at Lisdoonvarna's other wells before today. This Lawrence Collection image captures just how popular a tourist activity it was - with dozens of seemingly middle-class visitors at their leisure. Presumably rented towels are drying outside the bath house, and musical entertainment is evident outside the pump house - confirming that the crowds came to Lisdoonvarna long before the music and matchmaking festivals.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though likely after c.1890 based on the date of the main pump-house building.

Kilmanahan Castle, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary
Description: Yet another fine image of an Irish castle from the Lawrence Collection. When you see these shots of beautiful buildings you begin to realise the loss the country suffered during the course of the early part of the 20th century. This one has, not only the building, but also a resident and their mode of transport outside the front door! WIll we still be playing Elton John's 'I'm Still Standing' at the end of the day? Thankfully, based on today's inputs, we are happy to confirm that (though perhaps not in song form) that this castle is largely still standing. Though at least parts of it are in ruin - possibly with damage caused in the decades following this image. As our intrepid Flickroonies tell us, this castle lies on the eastern bank of the River Suir - right on the border between Co Waterford and Co Tipperary. The castle was seemingly associated with the Earls of Donoughmore, and DannyM8 offers some census returns for those in the building in 1901 and 1911 (perhaps even covering the lady pictured at the doorway...)

Mitchelstown Castle, Co. Cork
Description: To begin the week one day late here is a magnificent building in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. (As regards our last image, the dog's name was "Stop" - because every time he tried to run and play, his owner shouted "Stop!!") On today's (dog free) image, sharon.corbet highlighted that it should be added to our "No Longer Standing" album. It now has been - because this 19th century castle was burned down during the Irish Civil War. Myrtle26, DannyM8, beachcomber, and guliolopez help establish some extra context for events in and around the castle prior to its destruction. And O Mac confirms that the castle's very stones were reused in the building of the abbey at Mount Mellary....

Wagging tail and wagging tongues at the post office (Portrush, Co Antrim)
Description: This lovely shot by Robert French shows the Post Office in Portrush with a seemingly posed group - complete with a DOG! Anybody who can come up with the name of the dog will be guaranteed an Irish virtual sticky bun - not as exotic as the Australian version but very tasty nonetheless. With thanks to the usually insightful contributions, it seems that we can narrow the 50-year catalogue range to perhaps a decade or two in the late 19th century (certainly the fashions point more to 1870s/1880s than the early 20th century). Niall McAuley and O Mac have also helped us map this image to the site of the "old" post office on Main Street Portrush. (The "new(er)" post office was built c.1908 and is now a library...)

Spire of Lloyd, Kells, Co. Meath
Description: Another contribution from the Eason Collection to end off the week. I have seen this spire / tower many times while driving but I have never had the opportunity to visit it. Is it a pure folly or was it intended for some more practical use? With thanks in particular to contributions from B-59 and beachcomber we have learned that the tower doesn't have a specific practical use - other than perhaps as a viewing tower. Though built to resemble a lighthouse (and seemingly the "only inland lighthouse in Ireland"), the dedication inscription on the tower suggests that it was intended as a family memorial when commissioned by the then Marquess Headfort/Earl Bective. The NIAH entry tells us that it was designed and completed by architect Henry Aaron Baker c.1791.....
