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). The general consensus is that image was captured no more than a few years after the building of the convent (c.1892) - given the condition, unfilled statue niches, and saplings in the garden.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range 1865-1914. Definitely after 1892 (built). Probably not long after 1892 (condition) NLI Ref: L_ROY_07954 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

No place like home!
Description: The original title for this stereo pairs shot is "Institutional building, open University, wings 3 bays wide, 4 deep, main obelisk 3 a side 3 to central portion, cart foreground" and I suspect that it won't last too long? A very imposing if unattractive building that I do not recognise and suspect that it no longer stands? Most assuredly it looks no place like home! While I was (thankfully) wrong about the "no longer standing" prediction, I wasn't wrong about how quickly this one was identified. sharon.corbet was quick to pinpoint this as the Custom House in Belfast. B-59 tells us that it was designed by the prolific Charles Lanyon (1813–1889), whose firm's works we have come across several times before. Sharon also proposes a refinement to the date range - based on the suggestion that the south entrance (visible/tagged on the right) was only in place between 1872 and 1886..... Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1883.

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? Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900.

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). Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Village of Leenane, County Galway
Description: This picture of an idyllic scene, a tiny village from across a body of water with hills in the background, gives a romantic view of Ireland at the turn of the 20th century. It puts a gloss over the hardship and poverty of rural Ireland at that time. With that cheerful note, we can look forward to the end of September and the start of October at the weekend! With subject and location already established here, some of today's investigations focused on dates. The general consensus is that (based on the family businesses pictured) the image may have been taken close to the 1901 or 1911 censuses. Perhaps even c.1906/1907 when we know the French/Lawrence were in the area seemingly overlapping with a visiting tourist bus. Whether or not we can refine it to the turn of the century, it seems likely to have been taken in the later decades of the 50-year catalogue range...

Anyone for cricket? Academical College, Coleraine
Description: "School building, 2 storey (3 in central wing) 3 bays deep, 11 wide, professors in foreground boys with cricket bats" Keeping with our academic theme, the "zoomed" view of this stereo-pair (or at least one half of it) has a lot to offer. From the well-dressed professors, to bowler wearing cricket players, to the myriad chaps peering from windows, there's a lot to take in. While the catalogue listing didn't offer us a specific location or date, Dr O Mac came back in double-quick time to establish that this is Academical College in Coleraine - and a firm suggestion that the photo was likely taken within a decade of the college's opening in 1860. (So on the early side of the 1860s to 1880s range) Proposals for a grammar school in the town were first put forward in 1846 and then shelved during the economic crisis which accompanied the Great Irish Famine. Built between 1854 and 1860 – during which time the projected cost of £2000 had exactly doubled – the new school began operation with two masters and fourteen boys. The size of the school peaked at around 1100 boys in the 1970s, and today enrolment stands at slightly below 700.

Ukas bilde/Photo of the week 11/2012
Description: Rock'n roll med The Pussycats. John Erik Østrøm er rådgiver i Seksjon for digitalt depot i Riksarkivet og har funnet frem ukens bilde: Pussycats i Grimstad 1967 "Første spor etter rock’n roll i arkivene her i Riksarkivet. Ett av de mest innflytelsesrike bandene på 60-tallet, The Pussycats, fra en konsert i Grimstad juli 1967. Pussycats ble dannet i Tromsø i 1964. De ga i 1966 ut to album Psst! Psst! og Mrr…Mrr…, som begge ble en suksess. Sten Ekroth var gruppas manager i ”storhetsdagene” og ble kjent for sin kreative markedsføring og uvanlige stunts for å få gruppen fram i lyset. Han gjorde at gruppen ble valgt som oppvarmere til Rolling Stones’ Nordenturne i 1965, der de bl.a. opptrådte i Sjølysthallen. Pussycats medvirket senere på Ole Paus’ Garman og ga ut to plater som ikke nådde helt opp. Etter flere mannskapsendringer ble gruppa oppløst i 1973." Bildet er hentet fra Billedbladet NÅs arkiv, arkivreferanse PA-0797/ Ue/ 4380a Rock’n roll with The Pussycats. The Pussycats in Grimstad 1967 First signs of rock’n roll in the National Archives of Norway. One of the most influential bands in the 60’s, The Pussycats, from a gig in Grimstad July 1967. The Pussycats were formed in Tromsø in 1964. In 1966 they released two albums, Psst! Psst! and Mrr…Mrrr…, which were both very successful. Sten Ekroth was the band’s manager in “the golden days”, and was known for his creative marketing and unusual stunts to get the band noticed. He managed to get the band the job as the warm-up act for the Rolling Stones on their Nordic tour in 1965, where they performed in Sjølysthallen in Oslo, among other places. The Pussycats later contributed on Ole Paus’ Garman and released two records that didn’t quite make it to the top. After several changes in the band’s setup, the band dissolved in 1973.

Ashill Tower, Kilmallock, Co. Limerick
Description: Staying in Limerick but going down to the country town of Kilmallock and what appears an ancient castle/home nearby. Being out of doors today we will not have engravings and identifiable sculptures to assist us but the sleuthing of the Photo Detectives will no doubt make short work of that! As the masters of the AshhillDOTcom website do a nice job of summarising the history of the place, I won't attempt to top it. That said, an intruiging snippet from this summary, as B-59 and BeachcomberAustralia note, tells us that "due to excessive rates [..] some parts of the house, including the towers, were removed in the early 1960s". Today's contributors (as well as indulging some horsey tangents :) ) also tell us that the house was built and owned by the Coote family in the 18th century, passed through the Evans and Weldons in the 19th century, before being ultimately bought by Mrs Johnson in the 20th century. It's fantastic to see such a grand building still in use as a home. And B&B....

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....

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....

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....

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. Thankfully however the impressive looking bridge remains :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_02532 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

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...

Edermine, Co. Wexford
Description: Unusually for a Lawrence Royal plate this image is not quite tack sharp, but it does have a hazy beauty and suggestion "other times" to it! Edermine in County Wexford would appear to be a very big house with wonderful greenhouses for plant growth. I will be following the stream with interest to learn what I can about it! And what we learned, thankfully, is that everything here is still standing - and occupied. Edermine House itself was built c.1840 by John Benjamin Keane, the central chapel built c.1860 to designs by Augustus Pugin, and the magnificent greenhouse also c.1860 by James Pierce. It seems plausible that the Talbot Powers were the resident family enjoying the gardens around the time of this photo. After hosting refugee monks 100 years ago, it now remains in private hands...

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....

Description: I keep thinking I have seen this photograph before? We are back in Ballsbridge with this fine shot from Mr French. There is a lot going on which would suggest Spring Show or Horse Show? From a dating point of view I see no sign of the internal combustion engine. As usual we had excellent input on the date and location of this image. On the latter, BeachcomberAustralia suggests that French captured this image from the window of a building (now a restaurant) just west of the bridge. On the date, Niall McAuley's investigations on the businesses pictured (and the electrified tram lines) that this image likely dates from the very early 1900s (possibly c.1901-1906).....

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....

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. Where they have dated it c.1890.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900.

Hotel, Pontoon, Co. Mayo
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).

Valencia - Valentia?  A storm in a tea-cup?
Description: Perhaps the spot with the most exotic name in Ireland Valencia/Valentia (which ever way you choose to spell it). It looks delightful in the sun, and suitably Mediteranean with the steamer berthed close by! The presence of the steamer will probably help with the dating of this shot(?) Wishing all our Irish friends a happy Bank Holiday weekend and a good weekend to those outside Ireland. Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Definitely after 1895 (ship). Possibly after 1907 (distant buildings).

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....

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

Getting back to the days task, we have a very nice photo from the dead center of Belfast for your perusal, all contributions and comments welcome. Other than puns and poetry (and confirmation that the fountain is now more flower-bed than water-feature), the main learning today was that this fountain was built by the Sun Foundry around 1880 - helping condense the likely date range quite a bit....

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....

Dunluce Castle, Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim
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....

National Museum, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Library Towers stands on one side, the National Museum stands on the other and the adage "Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet" applies! A very old view of the Museum which will never be seen again. Something we also won't see again is the "fire escape station" we see in the centre. Our intrepid Flickroonies confirm that this public safety equipment wasn't just "left lying around" like so much street furniture. Often manned, it was quickly brought to bear when needed. Certainly quicker than if transported from a distance - without the assistance of the 13 tonne engines the Dublin Fire Brigade has today. Thankfully (as far as we know), it was never needed to deal with threats to the National Museum's collonaded facade (or indeed its collections)....

The Grand Stand Hotel, Curragh Camp
Description: The deep treasure chest that is the Lawrence Collection is the gift that keeps on giving. Today we are treated to a lovely cabinet sized plate of the Grand Stand Hotel at the Curragh Racecourse in County Kildare. The whole racing industry has changed radically since this shot was taken by Mr. French, but then the whole world has changed... ... And this area has changed. To the extent that I've added this image to our "no longer standing" album. While BeachcomberAustralia highlights that at least some of the building on the left survives (under the Curragh grandstand), and the hotel on the right survived until the last decade (til the streetview car passed-by in 2009 ), we've since learned that the hotel is now entirely demolished. Leaving this view quite changed from French's time!

Ice House, Ballina, Co. Mayo
Description: Today we will leave politics aside for a while as we visit Ballina in Co. Mayo and a fabulous house on the banks of the beautiful Moy! I spent a lot of time there as a child but I must admit that this house does not register in my memories of the place. Am glad however to say that, while my memory may be a little worse-for-wear, the building pictured still stands - confirmed by today's contributors to have been repurposed as a hotel. With thanks to B-59, BeachcomberAustralia, and Niall McAuley (and the entry in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage) we know that the building dates to (at least) the 1830s, and was further developed in the late 1850s. Originally a store and hub of the river's main salmon fishery, one imagines any ice found here now is used less for keeping fish from spoiling, and more for keeping drinks from warming...

Description: A timeless water and landscape scene from the Eason Collection today. We know where it is but what does it look like today I wonder? I must admit that my visits to Donegal have been few and far between, I must rectify that! It transpires that we did not in fact know where it was. This is Lough Beagh not Lough Neagh as per our Catalogue. Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia, sam2cents and O Mac for their comments. Lough Beagh does look very good on the ORTHO 2005 Photograph from our friends at Ordinance Survey Ireland (where would we be without them). Ortho rectified photographs are far more than just images taken from a satellite in space. Captured digitally orthophotography is corrected to allow for slopes and other distortions so that it corresponds exactly to large scale mapping, providing high levels of accuracy Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939 NLI Ref: EAS_1045 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Doctor Atkins, District Asylum
Description: A stream of irreverent thoughts came into my head when I saw the title to this shot from Poole! Is he perhaps an inmate or the attendant? Does he make "Dr. Atkins Patented Nerve Powders for Lunatic conditions"? No doubt the esteemed Dr. was a healer who laboured to bring solace to those with mental illness but who was he and what asylum did he work at? And we have answers to all our questions. The consensus is that this is Dr Ringrose Atkins, the Resident Medical Superintendent of Waterford District Asylum (an institution we have visited before). Dr Atkins was from a Cork family (which apparently included several generations of medical professionals), and he was appointed to the position in Waterford in 1878. Evidently he was also president of the YMCA and involved in the temperance movement. He died in his late 40s from complications arising from appendicitis. Given that the 1898 edition of the Journal of Psychiatry records his death as occuring that February, it seems we'll need to tweak the catalogue date range for this image..... Photographer: A. H.

Blackwater River, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford
Description: A fine stretch of river at Cappoquin with sidecar, driver and observer. I think that the beauty of the Blackwater is oftentimes overlooked. Perhaps as it is not as storied as rivers such as the Lee, the Liffey and the Shannon. But its tree lined banks and deep pools make it a place of peace and great beauty! There's general agreement that the image was taken around here, and that the house in the background is Dromona House...

Sir Walter Raleigh, cottage at Youghal
Description: From the academic Sir John P. Mahaffy to his more famous knightly colleague Sir Walter Raleigh and a cottage in County Cork! My definition of a cottage and Raleigh's definition would be many miles (or rooms and windows) apart it seems. I thought that the only remaining reminder of Raleigh was Tournafulla in Limerick where his troops decimated the population after the Desmond rebellion...? Based on today's insights, it seems possible that this image was taken while the house (known as Myrtle Grove) was owned by the Blake family; some members of whom could perhaps be captured in the windows.....

Description: A Gothic masterpiece to end July and welcome August! This looks very institutional today but may have been the height of architectural fashion in its day? Where is it and who built it? Derangedlemur quickly answered the first question - it's Magee College (Ulster University) in Derry . The answer to the second question is that it's likely within a decade or so of the college's opening - in 1865....

Posers in the sunny South East
Description: If you feel a sense of 'déja vu' or even if you feel you have seen this all before then you are correct. It is Wexford but taken from the other bank of the Slaney and showing the town and its skyline in the distance. The two in the foreground add some interest and are posing very nicely to enable Mr. French to 'frame' the scene.

No dogs will dine here by God!
Description: The Royal Hospital Kilmainham dining hall in all its splendour with the panoply of war (in case anyone might forget its residents former calling)! A building that seemed destined to be made derelict, but has been resurrected and restored to become a priceless addition to the Dublin art scene! Guliolopez provides some extra detail on the 17th-century 'great hall', which used for dining and recreation by the ex-soldiers who were cared-for in the RHK. As per the "then and now" comparison image that Niall McAuley provides, it's still used for events, receptions and dining - though clearly without all the weaponry and armour adorning the walls. I wonder where it all went.....?

Description: Meyer, Elisabeth Group of sami in traditional costumes in front of a house. Gelatin silver print, baryta Bryllupsfest på Finnmarksvidda Bryllup i Kautokeino. Her sees to brudepar, brudgommene har efter gammel skikk et hvidt skjerf i kryss over brystet, brudene har silkemuffe. Det hører også med at brudene ikke må smile.Ingen ung romantikk bandt dette brudeparet sammen. Det var to par som ikke hadde krefter lenger til det krevende flyttsamelivet. Nå ville de skape seg et hjem på kirkestedet. Så meget bandt dem til det, for han var av Logjeslekten og hun oldebarn til klokker Klemet Gundersen. NMFF.EM.000002.6.101

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....
