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

Statue of Sir B.L. Guinness, St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin
Description: A statue of a man in tights should get us off to a good start today? I have seen this statue of Sir B L Guinness many times but never paid much heed to. It will be nice to research him and see what his claim to fame may have been. While acknowledging that there is much more to him, oaktree_brian_1976 offers a summary of "the beer dude" :) As per the detail provided by B-59, BultacoFan, beachcomber, and Niall McAuley we learn that Benjamin Guinness (1798–1868) was a brewer and philanthropist, and that he contributed to the restoration (reconstruction?) of the cathedral where this status stands. The sculptor was John Hogan (1800–1858), whose works we have come across quite a few times before....

I love her cathedral and city
Description: Today we pay a visit to the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland. We are in Scotch Street, Armagh, County Armagh. The lazy dog, the waiting donkey, the man on the ladder and lots more to be seen here. As with yesterday's Belfast image it was the street directories and the businesses listed that helped refine the date range for today's image. Included are the Ulster Gazette (newspaper/printers), Robert Irwin (tailor), Charles Clarke (boots/shoes), and J Cochran (cycles). Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865 - 1914. Though likely after 1895 and possibly before 1903/1905.

Sloop on Sydney Harbour
Description: This photo is part of the Australian National Maritime Museum’s William Hall collection. The Hall collection combines photographs from both William J Hall and his father William Frederick Hall. The images provide an important pictorial record of recreational boating in Sydney Harbour, from the 1890s to the 1930s – from large racing and cruising yachts, to the many and varied skiffs jostling on the harbour, to the new phenomenon of motor boating in the early twentieth century. The collection also includes studio portraits and images of the many spectators and crowds who followed the sailing races. The Australian National Maritime Museum undertakes research and accepts public comments that enhance the information we hold about images in our collection.

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

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

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

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

Renaissance Residence as Rustic Rural Retreat?
Description: A visit to the Mason Collection today and to a very fancy "Hatters Castle" type dwelling in County Westmeath. While it looks formidable those windows and doors probably indicate that it was never intended to repel anything other than the weather. Is it still standing and where is/was it? sharon.corbet raises interesting points. Firstly she thinks that this photo is reversed and I am inclined to agree with her. Secondly she believes this photo is some form of a cropped (and reversed) version of L_CAB_03197 and again we fully accept her proposition. The above points do beg the question as to the relationships between the different photographers, why? how? does Mason end up with a Lawrence generated negative? sharon.corbet DannyM8 O Mac Niall McAuley BeachcomberAustralia I think it is a dog and he/she has moved before L_CAB_03198 was snapped.

Tennis Court (with slight obstruction) in Boyle
Description: Back to the old reliable Lawrence Collection today and a visit to the beautiful town of Boyle in County Roscommon. Titled "Tennis Court, Boyle" this image appears to be more about the statue than the tennis court in the background but don't let the truth get in the way of a good story :-) And indeed it was/is a good story. This statue, of King William III, had been moved to this location (from a nearby bridge) in the early 19th century. As with other memorials to King Billy, it suffered several defacements, before being entirely removed entirely before the 1930s. The general consensus is that this image dates to before 1905 - when the statue was seemingly beheaded. The pedestal remains, and is a landmark in the surrounding parkland and "Boyle pleasure grounds"....

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

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

Description: View looking through the shop window showing a display of a variety of electrical goods, including jugs, stoves, refrigerators, lamps, toasters, mix-masters, kettles and light fittings. The shop windows have leadlight inserts decorating the top part of the frames and the light fittings hanging inside the shop are Art Deco style, as is a small wall bracket on the back wall. There is another light fitting fastened to the ceiling of the awning on the footpath. Two Hecla advertisements are placed one each side of the window, which has an image of a woman holding different appliances.

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

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

"Diesterweg’s Hulpkas voor Behoeftige Schoolkinderen" (Antwerpen) richtte in 1904 een van de eerste openluchtscholen ter wereld op, de “Diesterweg's Bestendige Schoolkolonie” te Kalmthout. Zwakkere kinderen uit de Antwerpse stadsscholen konden er gedurende een aantal maanden van een kuur genieten. De leerplicht werd in 1914 in België ingevoerd. Children from the open-air school Diesterweg's Hulpkas enjoying a meal in the refectory. Heide, c. 1905-1914. "Diesterweg’s Hulpkas voor Behoeftige Schoolkinderen", a childcare organisation founded by teachers of the Antwerp city schools to assist pupils of poor families, also started with one of the first open air schools in history at Kalmthout. Children with poor health were allowed to spend several months in the open air school. Compulsory education was implemented in Belgium in 1914.

Horse apples, stone walls and Benbo!
Description: This Eason image of Benbo mountain in County Leitrim has lots of atmosphere provided by a long line of horse dung, well constructed stone walls, a man (policeman?) with a firearm(?) walking off into the distance, and the mountain looking down over all! Not very uplifting on this windy morning in January but interesting nonetheless and the "streetview" will no doubt be illuminating? With thanks to Streetview inputs from B-59 and sharon.corbet we have confirmation that this part of Manorhamilton is still readily recognisable - though thankfully with fewer deposited/natural obstacles to overcome :) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1920 NLI Ref: Eas 2642 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Wedding group : commissioned by Capt.Thomas Hayes. Union Barracks, Kilmacthomas
Description: A handsome military group celebrating the nuptials of Captain Thomas Hayes? There is, however, less than military precision on display - some wearing`gloves and others holding them, some wearing caps and other bareheaded! With thanks to various contributors, including our own Carol Maddock, it seems certain that this is a wedding party shot from the June wedding of Captain Thomas Hayes (of Union Barracks, Kilmacthomas) and Miss Anne "Nan" Walsh (of Tramore). Along with other groomsmen and bridesmaids is apparently Commandant Patrick "Paddy" Paul (of Waterford). Based on investigations by ofarrl, it seems certain that the group are pictured at the door to Kelly's Hotel in Tramore. Spanking new at the time of this shot, the hotel was felled and rebuilt in the 1980s, and is now the site of the Majestic Hotel... Photographer: A. H.

A very rare visit to County Longford
Description: This is a rare visit to the county of Longford and the pity is that it shows two institutional buildings rather than the many fine sights there! The Convent of Mercy beside the Union building on a rise must have been dominating the town for many years. Not as difficult to locate as the bombed out bridge of last week but it will be nice to see what has changed here in the meantime? Our interpid detectives have confirmed that the changes in the meantime include the addition of an extra wing to the convent building, and the demolition of the workhouse buildings themselves (on the right).

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

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

Lighthouse, Carrigaholt, Co. Clare
Description: From a traffic blockage in Clonmel to Carrigaholt where the nearest thing to a traffic jam is two cows meeting at a crossroads! Mr. French appears to have discovered rush hour at the famous lighthouse at Loop Head with people posing and using parasols and even a telescope! I wonder did Robert French manage to get the quartet to pose like that for him? While we're still none-the-wiser as to whether Mr French posed this group, or they struck a pose on their own accord, it is the group (and their spy glasses and parasols) that make this shot :) The lighthouse is no less interesting a subject however. We learned today that Kilcredaun Lighthouse was built in 1827, and operated by the Comissioners of Irish Lights for nearly 190 years - until its closure in recent years. The light topping the tower itself, and some of the buildings surrounding, were changed over the years - including more notable works in the 1930s and 40s....

Castle or traffic obstruction - Clonmels dilemma?
Description: This old gate to the town of Clonmel which once controlled traffic entering and leaving must have become a true bottleneck with the recent proliferation of motor cars and heavy traffic? At the time this photograph was taken however it does not appear to have been too much of a problem. Thank you all for yesterdays contributions on Main Street, Tipperary, it was very enlightening! Thanks also for the contributions on today's image. Focusing mainly on the date, the suggestion is that it was captured in the first decade or so of the catalogue range (perhaps after 1905, or into the 1910s). Certainly the NIAH entry on the gate itself doesn't help - in that it confirms it was built 100 years prior to this capture. That the gate has a plaque commemorating a famous son of Clonmel, Laurence Sterne, was news to me though.....

Main Street, Tipperary, County Tipperary
Description: Welcome back to everybody and we hope that you all had a most enjoyable Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year! To begin 2018 we have a view of Main Street, Tipperary Town with lots of activity, commerical and otherwise, to view! We have been to Tipperary before but it was to the brave new world of New Tipperary, an experiment in breaking the shackles of wealthy owners and creating a peoples cooperative. I am intrigued by the vehicles on view with the goods strewn along the sides of the street, it appears to be an older shot than most with no motor cars, bicycles or light poles on view?

St. Helens Bridge, Crawfords Burn
Description: Having spent some time recently down in the sunny South East, or over in beautiful Sligo, it seems appropriate that we visit the wee North. This fine manorial style bridge looks a formidable crossing over a very minor road. Given that, even 100 years ago it was overgrown, how does it look today? While still somewhat overgrown, as evidenced by the contemporary Flickr shots linked from the comments, we are at least delighted that this striking bridge still stands. Today's contributors tell us that this bridge was built, along with the nearby Helen's Bay Railway Station in the 1860s. Designed by architect Benjamin Ferrey, the project was bankrolled by Frederick Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood, 1st Marquess of Dufferin and Ava, whose lands the line traversed. And whose coat-of-arms still adorn the bridge....

Wanted Dead or Alive
Description: Another visit to Sligo Town but with a very different view and skyline to that of our visit to "The Quays"! With the detritus of a recent market lying about it doesn't look very attractive but Sligo - the town and especially the county are much underrated! The welcome is warm, the scenery is stunning and the food is first class. But who is wanted and why? Several contributors pointed-out that we've visited this stretch of Market Street before, and had dated the statue (which replaced this lamppost) to c.1899. Putting this image before that date. In terms of the subject of the "Wanted" poster, the general consensus is that its a tailoring business (Clinchy's) who are seeking journeymen tailors. With "several good men" wanted.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Certainly before c.1899 (when lamppost replaced w/statue).

The Waterfall, Poulaphouca, Co. Wicklow
Description: A beautiful Royal plate of the Waterfall at Poulaphouca, Co. Wicklow. Over the years I have been in that area many times but have never seen this so perhaps it has been inundated? While not inundated, today's contributors and the relevant Wikipedia article tell us that the Poulaphouca waterfall was largely reduced to a trickle following the nearby reservoir works.

The difference between an
Description: The question of the day, apart from the where, when, who of most days is whether the name contains an "N" as in Kincara or and "L" as in Kilcara? I suspect that dating this will not be easy with the lack of identifiable clues but you will have to admit that it is a nice shot of what seems to have been a lovely sunny day! Today's contributors point in particular to the NIAH entry for Kilcarra House (with an "L"), which confirms that this lodge was built c.1888. Seemingly part of the Glenart estate (now a hotel), the gate house was apparently up for sale in recent years - although with a new family crest gracing its arch!

Poor Clare's Carlow Convent Congregation Carefully Congregated!
Description: This fine Royal sized image from the Lawrence Collection of what appears to be a shiny new Poor Clare Convent in Carlow has a gathering of people in their finery for the photograph! We can probably establish the place with ease but when was it taken and what does the place look like today! The place looks quite similar today - on StreetView at any rate. StreetView does however confirm that a large church has since been built to the left of the convent house. In fact, Niall McAuley tells us that the church was actually moved to sit next to the convent in the 1920s. While this doesn't help date our photo, the (likely more conventional - if speedy) construction completion-date of the convent building does help. And, there's a pretty good feeling that our image dates close to when the convent was opened; in 1900.

The Quays in Sligo
Description: A lovely Lawrence image of the Quays (pronounced in those parts as the "kays") in Sligo town. Taken around the time of the transition from sail to steam, we have a nice mix of sailing vessels and steamers. Even the steamships have the alternative - with masts for sails as back up to the engines. The town looks all a bustle but how much has that skyline changed in the meantime? Apart from the spires of the cathedral and town hall, the waterfront has changed quite a bit since this image was taken. Which, based on the two vessels visible (the screw steamer Heathmore, and the brig Argestes ), was likely in the 1890s. And certainly before 1897, when the Heathmore was sunk....

Ducats Grove, Carlow, Co. Carlow
Description: This fairytale castle in Co. Carlow looks more like a child's dream than a mature person's reality. Lines of statues leading to a door guarded by armoured spear bearers. All this was bound to deter the faint hearted! As attested by the contributions on this image (and the associatied Wikipedia article), while the main structure of Duckett's Grove remains, the statues and interiors do not. Home to the Duckett family for several hundred years, it was never fully occupied following their departure in 1916 - and the main building was destroyed by fire in 1933. While the interiors were never redeveloped, some life has returned to the place - with events, tourism and gardens that form part of the Carlow Garden Trail...

Meet Moate's Main Street - from the west!
Description: Moate, Co. Westmeath has a long and noble main street and it is well captured in this fine Eason shot! We have some of the usual suspects standing about but for me the pose of the man about to climb onto the cart is BIZ! There are no shortage of chimney pots on view and I am sure turf/peat was the staple diet for the fireplaces thereabouts. Given that the location of this image was pretty unequivocal, much of the discussion on its subject focused on the buildings and businesses which are visible. And, based on the adverts visible (including the Morganol Lubricants signage), it seems likely we are after c.1908. Also, given that we don't seem to see this memorial cross outside the courthouse, we are likely before c.1925..... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely c.1908-1925. Possibly late 1910s-early 1920s.

Thomas O'Criothan, Author, Great Blasket
Description: Happy Cyber Monday to all and when you are online take a moment to imagine how much life has changed since Tomás O'Críothán walked this earth? Tomás used longhand to write, he will have used the old Irish script with the various accents and letter forms in use at the time. All has changed, changed utterly since then and if we could identify the place then the streetview - might not have changed at all! Apart from the discussion on the man and his works (Tomás Ó Criomhthain (1856-1937)), much of the discussion today was on the date of the image. While a copy of this image is apparently held by the Smithsonian (which dates it to "c.1900"), and though our photographer Thomas Mason may have visited the islands with scholar Robin Flower (Bláithín) c.1910, there's a possibility that the image was captured a little later, c.1920.

Church interior showing altar and pews. Script over altar reads
Description: 1860-1930 gives us a date window of 70 years and yet there may be nothing in this photo which will allow us to significantly narrow that window? I am confident that we will get the location. In terms of location, it is unequivocally established that this is St Catherine's Church (CoI) in Ahascragh, County Galway. (A church and churchyard which the Dillons and ourselves have visited before). In terms of date, based in particular on inputs from Rory Sherlock and Bernard Healy, the guys have been able to more than half the 70-year range to perhaps 30-years (likely 1870s/80s/90s). This is based primarily what we see (and don't see) on the left-handside of the image. Specifically, the scrolled memorial dates to the early 1870s. So we must be after that. And this memorial was moved, and a new trancept was built, before the mid-1900s. So we must be before then.... Fógra: There will be a guided tour of the Photo Detectives Exhibition on Wednesday next 29th November at 11 am. This tour will take approx. 45 minutes and is free to the public. It will help bring this outstanding exhibition to life for those who attend. Please pass the word to any who may be interested?

Donnacomper, Celbridge, Co. Kildare
Description: On this Monday we present a fine Lawrence shot of Donnacomper. What can you tell us about it? And the main things that our contributors "told us about" were the house/estate, and the lads (in the cart) by its back-door :) On the estate, we learned that Donaghcumper House was built in the late 18th century (1770s), and significantly remodeled in Tudor Revival style in the 19th century (1830s) .It was primarily associated with the Kirkpatrick family. On the lads in the cart, the consensus is that they are members of the extended Kirkpatrick family. And, while several other Kirkpatrick "cousins" are possible, it seems plausible that the boys in the cart are the sons of Elizabeth Mary Kirkpatrick. Namely: Ivone Hayford Thorold (1884-1913), and his younger brother Rupert Alexander Thorold (1886-1951). They lived with their mother at Donaghcumper, and Ivone may have been in his early teens in this picture. Perhaps dating it to the 1890s...

What are they all looking at?
Description: Labelled "Castle, Throne Room, Dublin" in the catalogue, no throne room ever looked so airy and informal. But then, of course, this is not Dublin Castle's Throne Room! Instead, a market/fair is in progress somewhere - with a lot going on. That huddle in the left foreground with men/boys bent over a table, leaning on one another in companionable familiarity while three ladies in shawls stand apart and looking on is quite intriguing! What are they looking at? A virtual sticky bun, we haven't had a virtual sticky bun for quite a while, to the most interesting or novel suggestion! And, of course, we are in Clifden, County Galway. As well as the possible 'amusements' available, the general feeling is that much of the crowd are engaged in otherwise legitimate trade :) We can even see the same weigh-station we've visited before.

Down by the Sea
Description: The title in our catalogue is "Castle, Throne Room, Dublin City, Co. Dublin", which is obviously incorrect. I am not even sure that this is a Lawrence shot, at lease not a typical Lawrence shot. I will list it as it is in the system - and review later when we see what transpires during the course of your deliberations. The overriding consensus is that this is the strand at the Murrough, by Wicklow Town. Perhaps a few yards (and a few years) separated from a reverse view we had previously. In terms of subject, it seems likely that this image captures an early 20th century crowd enjoying the Wicklow Regatta (first run in 1878).

Hatters Castle in the trees!
Description: The original title of this Stereo Pairs image is "Long shot over trees, mountain in background, Co. Wicklow" and it is a long shot and a glimpse rather than a full view of a castellated house. No doubt if the house is not identified the hill/mountain in the background will? Almost simultaneously, Rory_Sherlock and Niall McAuley identified this as Glanmore Castle near Ashford in County Wicklow. Originally owned by the Syne family through many generations (including John Millington Synge's own immediate family), the castle has since been redeveloped as separate dwellings - some of which have apparently been "on the market" in recent years....

Roundwood, Co. Wicklow
Description: Roundwood as none of us will have seen it. Irelands highest village looks like a tiny hamlet dominated by a fine stone church with maidens dancing at the crossroads (sorry, I got a bit carried away there)! Children in pinnies, a sunhat on display and a soft misty fog on the mountains, Ireland as we dream of it. Given that subject and location are clear, the main discussion today was on date. The general consensus (based on businesses and buildings visible) is that we are likely closer to the first half of the catalogue range (c.1880s) than to the upper bound (c.1900). Interestingly, [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] highlights that this very picture hangs in the lounge of the (now very smartly rennovated) building on the right hand side of the street.

Description: This was the shot that should have been posted for Halloween and we might have discovered the man with the cloven hoof? Having said that, this shot by Mr. French shows a heavenly scene. And, way back when this photo was taken, it must have so restful and peaceful it seemed to be heaven? From today's contributions we learned that Healy's Hotel (in Pontoon, County Mayo) has operated on the shores of Lough Cullen since the 1830s/1840s. After a recent downturn in fortunes, apparently it has been bought recently for development (good news). But that development may involve demolition of the original structure and a rebuild (perhaps less good news).....

Description: For a change we have an image from the Stereo Pairs Collection today with a rocky road surrounded by rocky fields and rocky walls in various states of repair. There is no indication where this might be though it does look to be "down the West" to me. What do you think? For a while we thought perhaps that we had stumped the unstumpable. But, yet again, we found the community to be stump-proof. derangedlemur and others highlighted that the proximate images in the series (STP_0772, STP_0771, etc) all seemed to be in the Wicklow area (Glendalough, Laragh, etc). And, B-59 noted that the apparent reverse view (STP_0769) showed a body of water. Ultimately, andymullane identified it as Lough Dan House - with corroboration from O Mac and Salty Windows. Incredible work all - and particular thanks to andymullane!

A little bit misty out there!
Description: Appropriately on Halloween a misty scene, this time in west Kerry, to remind us that summer is well and truly gone and winter is coming with darkness and cold. When this image was taken Halloween was a time for reverence and remberance while the young people celebrated with the fruits of the harvest. A far cry then from the decorated houses, witches costumes and "Trick or Treat" demands at the door. Perhaps somebody in Library Towers is just getting old and cranky? Based on research in particular from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/bernardhealy] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] it seems likely that we can refine the 5-decade catalogue range to perhaps a decade of so around 1910. Specifically, the guys suggest that the white Celtic cross (by the church portico) is inscribed with a date in 1904. Meaning (unless the inscription post-dated the cross itself) we are almost certainly after then. And that, perhaps, the telegraph poles suggest a date after 1907 (before which Ballyferriter Post Office wasn't connected to the telegraph).... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely after 1904 (grave cross). Perhaps after 1907 (telegraph poles).

Cloghleigh Castle, Moorepark, Fermoy, Co. Cork
Description: Back to North Cork today to near Fermoy. These fortified households are dotted all around the island and calling them castles appears to be a bit of an over-inflation. This one looks very big in comparison with others I know, I wonder what makes this one so interesting? And, we learned, what makes this one interesting is its bloody past. The original builders of this tower house were the Norman De Caunton family. Later known as the Condons, they sided with the Earl of Desmond in the 1580s during the Desmond Rebellion. On the losing side, they were forced to surrender their estates in 1588. They regained the castle for a period - only to see it taken over by the Fleetwood family in 1622. During the particularly bloody Eleven Years War (aka the Confederate Wars in Ireland), the Condons retook the castle again - decimating the surrendering Fleetwoods. The Condon return was short lived however as, in 1643, English forces retook the castle and its Condon occupants were "put to the sword". Many of *these* English soliders however were killed in the subsequent Battle of Cloghleagh. The castle may have been in the possession of the War Department when this image was captured....

Square & Main street, Mitchelstown, Co. Cork
Description: If I remember correctly we have been to Mitchelstown before but not with this particular view and not with the Eason collection? Up in the heights of north Cork, Mitchelstown is a small town of wide streets and this fine square. The military firing range of Kilworth is nearby. Given that location and subject was firmly established, much of the discussion on this image was on the date. The general consensus is that we can likely refine the 40 year catalogue range (c.1900-1939) to the years around WWI (perhaps c.1915-1920). Specifically, this image must date from after 1906 (statue built), probably dates from at least the mid-1910s (businesses/posters/motor-car), and possibly dates from before 1920 (bank building work)..... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Certainly >1906. Perhaps <1920.

Rathmines Road Upper, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Todays offering from the vaults beneath Library Towers is much more identifiable than last Friday's offering. Rathmines Road Upper back in the day with tramlines, horse cart deliveries and cobbled road surface. Heaven! While, unlike Friday's headscratcher, location and subject were largely known here, the date was not. Based on the businesses, tramlines and (partial) posters visible, the general consensus is that this image dates from around 1910-1911. Comparing the modern streetview, which captures similar businesses and business names (a laundry, Kennedy's, pub, etc) you'd perhaps be forgiven for thinking it was less than 100+ years ago....

Let's have a bit of fun.... in Navan
Description: For most recent photographs, with the exception of the DeValera image, we knew where if not the when or the who but today I believe we have a conundrum of sorts. The catalogue title on this says "View of Houses, Dublin City, Co. Dublin"! Now this is clearly an institution somewhere, perhaps not even in Dublin, and not a group of houses in the form of separate residences. What is it, where is it and when was this image likely to have been captured? While it took part of the weekend (proving that "sleeping on it" is sometimes useful), the persistence of a number of editors have confirmed that this is St. Joseph's Mercy Convent in Navan. Almost certainly photographed after 1910. derangedlemur and Niall McAuley in particular were instrumental in finding and confirming the location, with Frank_C providing extra information on the foreground stream. The latter has since been culverted - and is seemingly part of Leighsbrook Lane in Navan... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939.

Square, Coalisland, Co. Tyrone
Description: I am weary of Dublin/Cork photographs, and so today I made an executive decision to go up to the "Wee North" today :) This fine Royal plate showing the Square (not the Diamond mind you) in Coalisland. It may bring a breath of fresh air to those tired of city life! EXPLORE KLAXON - BAWAAAAAAH - Our photograph of De Valera in Grand Parade yesterday was our 100th Explore entry. This is a remarkable number and is entirely due to the community who do all the work on this stream. Congratualtions one and all! Coming back to the "Wee North", among other contributions and contributors, Bernard Healy's census investigations suggest that this image is possibly after the 1901 census. But perhaps before the 1911 census. The lower bound is suggested because the Fullen family (of the "F.V. Fullen" signage we see) may have been living elsewhere nearby during the 1901 census. The upper bound is suggested because (while the Fullens were almost certainly "here" by 1911) some of the other businesses pictured were gone or had moved by then....

Protecting his friend or standing over the vanquished?
Description: The calm after the storm gives us time to visit the National Museum - our sister institution across the yard. The title of this shot is "Museum, Dublin" and of course it is likely in the museum in Dublin. A fine sculpture apparently depicting a scene from a battle, it should perhaps be easy enough to identify? We, in the shelters of Library Towers, hope that all our Irish and UK supporters came through the delights of ex-Hurricane Ophelia unscathed yesterday! Our contributors, including O Mac, B-59, Beachcomber, Niall McAuley, and Bernard Healy, gave us a wealth of information on this statue and its subject. The statue, of bronze-painted plaster, was completed sculptor Charles Bell Birch in Dublin around 1880. The captured here in Dublin's National Museum, it is now housed in the National Army Museum in London. The subject of the statue is Lieutenant Walter Hamilton of Inistioge, County Kilkenny. Hamilton, who won a VC for his actions during the Second Anglo-Afghan War, was killed during a siege of the British Residency in Kabul. The manner of his exploits, "conspicuous gallantry" and death were such that (perhaps unsurprisingly) they were captured more than once in print. And, obviously, in this dramatic statue....

Street, Midleton, Co. Cork
Description: To end the week, on Friday this time, I thought a visit to Ireland's secessionist County of Cork would be appropriate! This lovely Eason shot of a street in Midleton is a far cry from the statues, banks and hackneys of yesterday's College Green shot. It may however have some bonuses nonetheless! The main 'bonus', prompted by initial investigations by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and others, is that the car pictured is probably the Ford motor car of John Moore. John Moore, who lived on this street (Broderick Street) in Midleton, was one of only three registered car owners in the town proper. At least in the 1920s and 1930s. It seems more than plausible therefore that it is his car that is pictured. If so, it is likely that this was captured after 1916....

Dublin Castle and the State Apartments from the lawn
Description: This fine view of the rear of Dublin Castle and the facade of the State Apartments by Robert French keeps us in Dublin city for yet another day! Very little has changed in this scene in the intervening 100+ years. The main learning today - for myself anyway - was that the lawn pictured was the original site of the "Black Pool" or "Dubh Linn" - from which the city gets its name. As Béarla ar ndóigh. That is, according to the article and illustration which [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] links us to. As per the contemporary views which BultacoFan and Beachcomber provide, while changed significantly in the centuries before this image, it has not changed much since....

Feltrim Hill, Swords, Co. Dublin
Description: Feltrim Hill in Swords looking down on Charles J. Haughey's old home and the Swords, Malahide and Howth in the distance. This was a prominent landmark in its time and was built on a rare (for Ireland) outcrop of coral based limestone. Almost simultaneously several contributors identified the structure pictured as Feltrim Windmill. It was - we learned - built in the 17th century from Dutch bricks by Dutch workers. Originally used as a woolen mill, it became a corn mill, and was apparently used for a time as a semaphore tower. It stood until 1973 - when it was mysteriously/surreptitiously/criminally(?) demolished one Saturday night. It's demise apparently the source of discussion on the floor of the Dáil....

Glen of Imaal, Co. Wicklow
Description: The Glen of Imaal - Gleann Uí Mháill - the Bare Glen but not the Glen itself but rather Leitrim Castle in the Glen. If you are not confused by now then I hope that there will be clarity by the evening? As the Irish Defence Forces artillery range is located there it is not a place much frequented by visitors but its rugged beauty is well worth viewing. Almost simultaneously this morning, Rory_Sherlock and Niall McAuley proposed/confirmed that this is (or more properly was) Leitrim Barracks close to the Military Road in County Wicklow. While appearing in maps from the 19th and very early 20th centuries, the building was severaly damaged by fire in 1914. And now no longer stands...

View of a Dublin Street (Dorset Street), Drumcondra, Co. Dublin
Description: A visit to the Eason collection for Tuesday with a great and busy view of Dorset Street in Dublin's city centre. While it does not have the clarity and detail of yesterdays Lawrence Royal plate it has lots going on and plenty of names to aid an exciting search! Following an initial "gut feel" from Beachcomber, and some slightly more evidence-based sleuthing by Bernard Healy (assisted by Niall McAuley), it seems likely that this image was taken around 1913 - give or take a few years. Probably in the run-up to Easter. This is based on the cards on offer at no.24 Dorest Street, but mainly on the (perhaps then newly opened) Tylers bootstore at no.29. Just goes to show that there is room in our detective ranks for both the gut instinct of the gumshoe, and the hardslog of the criminalist :) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939.

Description: Confusion reigns, the Quays in Derry have changed direction, instead of running along the river Foyle it appears that they now run out into Lough Erne? Or perhaps the cataloguer is in error on this shot or even Mr. French was on the sauce when he marked them up? Whatever the cause I am sure that this is a beautiful scene, well taken and most suitable to end the week. Have a great weekend one and all! And so, confusion no longer reigns, with confirmation that this is not Derry, but Derrylin in County Fermanagh. Specifically, Knockniny Hotel on Upper Lough Erne. Located on Knockninny Quay, this hotel still stands - and evidently up for sale until very recently. There was even an association with a previous image capturing the tourism history of Lough Erne, with Niall McAuley reminding us that this hotel was opened by John Grey Vesey Porter in 1873. Possibly taking a decade or so off the earliest date in the catalogue range... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range 1865-1914.

R.I.C. Depot, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Situated just inside the North Circular Road gates to the Phoenix Park these lovely, old, red bricked buildings always seemed separate from the old RIC Depot. Was Mr. French correct in his assertion that it was part of the Depot? It is certainly not the image that is shown these days for Garda Headquarters. The suggestion (proposed by Bernard Healy and endorsed by Niall McAuley and swordscookie) is that these were the 'Married Quarters' for RIC members and families based at the main Depot. Though only very slightly modified over the years since, the modern StreetView doesn't include the armed sentries which [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] tells us patrolled the site in the decades around this photo....

Harbour & Parade, Portstewart, Co. Derry
Description: We are staying north of the border today, in Portstewart to be precise. Having had a good look at the photo I am struck by the three hard working (is that the correct word?) men on the middle pier, they seem to be very relaxed and laid back. I am expecting a very precise date range for this photo. Among the commetary, insights and dating suggestions for this image is confirmation (from the StreetView provided by B-59) that the buildings in the middle of this image have been replaced or otherwise unrecognisable. Thankfully the buildings on the left of Harbour Place and the right of the Promenade remain. One of the other main takeaways from today is how excited we all are for tomorrow's launch of the Photo Detectives exhibition One more sleep indeed :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900 NLI Ref: L_ROY_05579 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Crosthwaite Park, Kingstown, Co. Dublin
Description: A shot of a suburban scene in an exclusive area of Kingstown, as it was then known, in County Dublin. The beauty of the seascape, the proximity to the city centre and the easy access to the first railway in Ireland all make this area still very desirable. What was it about Crosthwaite Park though that attracted Robert French to take such shots? Niall McAuley tells us that this part of Dún Laoghaire was developed in the 1860s and 1870s, so it is possible that they were relatively new when this photo was taken. Sharon.corbet and Dún Laoghaire Micheál offer some extra information on the namesake developer, John Crosthwaite (1794-1884) who was a local - with Dún Laoghaire Micheál going so far as to source an article on the reading of his will. The houses surrounding the park were seemingly home to a number of influential names over the years, so it may be its grandeur, relative newness, or the prestige address that prompted this shot....

Description: We are somewhat regular visitors to Antrim's Causeway Coast, but had not visited Dunluce Castle before. As BeachcomberAustralia points-out, we've ridden the Giant's Causeway Tramway before - the "third rail" of which we see here. It is this third rail that helps date the image in fact, as beachcomberaustralia tells us that it was replaced with overhead wires in 1899. A move that is perhaps unsurprising given the danger it posed - electrocuting at least one unfortunate visitor....

Victoria Castle East Gate, Killiney, Co. Dublin
Description: Had I not seen the caption on this image I would have thought that I was looking at a castle in Spain or some far land! A beautiful scene that is nearly on the doorstep of Library Towers! Killiney has changed a wee bit since this shot was taken by Mr. French... Sharon.corbet confirms that the castle has also changed a bit since - at least in name. Now called Manderley Castle and owned by musician Enya, Victoria Castle was built in the 1840s by QC and MP Robert Warren. O Mac suggests that it was captured before before the early 1880s (when Killiney railway station was built and would've been visible in the middle distance, as it is in the modern StreetView).
