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

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

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

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

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

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

Biddy Gray's Crooked Wood, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath
Description: For many in the past (who were not Irish or who were more than one generation away from the island) this might appear to be an idyllic Irish scene. The thatched cottage, the granny sitting on the wall outside the open door, the children, well washed and dressed playing in the yard, and the old gentleman stopping to bid good day to the woman of the house! What could perhaps be more sterotypically Irish than that?

Openluchtschool van Diesterweg's Hulpkas, 1905 | Open-air school from Diesterweg's Hulpkas, 1905
Description: Kinderen poseren met hun begeleiders, Heide-Kalmthout, 1905. "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 pose with their teachers, Kalmthout, 1905. "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. Photo by Antonius Van Horenbeeck, 1905.

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

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

Bridge and Stronghold - The following plates are not lettered and therefore not authentic, Athy, Co. Kerry
Description: This fine shot of the bridge and stronghold at Athy is from the Eason Collection. I have deliberately included the title as shown because it raises questions and of course Athy is NOT in Co, Kerry! The staff at NLI include all information on a file as provided to them regardless of how inaccurate it may seem. When research clarifies the matter and they can include the correct information then they update the file and correct the error! As today's commenters note, we've visited the delightfully named Cromaboo Bridge and White's Castle each previously. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] suggests that (based on the ivy growth on the castle, and possibly coroberated by the fashions visible on the megazoom[tm]) today's image may predate the previously shared image of White's Castle - which was proposed to date to the 1920s or later....

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

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

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

Dáil Chamber silent and empty
Description: Until the advent of television, sights such as this were relatively rare, the inside of the national parliament was considered almost sacrosanct. Now the activity there is streamed live, relevant clips appear daily on the news channels and people are familiar with the appearance and décor. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] notes, the main parliament chamber at Leinster House was originally a lecture theatre leased from the Royal Dublin Society. It was bought outright for Dáil use, and redesigned in the mid-1920s (likely putting this image after that date)...

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

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

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

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

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

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

Description: This is labelled as the "Durrow Viaduct, Stradbally, Co.Laois", and a very fine shot it is. One wonders if it is now disused or perhaps abandoned for some years? It may surprise that this is from the Eason Collection! With thanks to today's contributors (including B-59 and Rory_Sherlock) there is a consensus suggestion that our catalogue label is incorrect, and that perhaps this is actually Ballyvoyle Viaduct in County Waterford. The smaller arch (and cottage) on the lefthand-side does seem a good fit with this Waterford Museum image from c.1900. If it is the Ballyvoyle Viaduct, we (now) know that it was blown-up during the Civil War in August 1922, and replaced with a new structure in 1923. According to this synopsis from the Waterford & Suir Valley Railway website the line didn't reopen fully until 1924....

Grotesque and Ghastly Gothic or Soaring Spiky Spires?
Description: This stereo pairs image of a church with lots and lots of spiked abutments and spires on a Y shaped avenue was selected to finish the week. For me its appearance is both unwelcoming and forbidding - having a dark and austere aspect. The location and subject was very quickly identified by sharon.corbet as Down Cathedral. The cathedral is formally known as the "Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity". As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] explains, and per the Wikipedia article, at least some of the structure dates to the 13th and 14th centuries, with the "gothic revival" flourishes added in the late 18th and early 19th centuries....

The Lodge, Spa, Ballynahinch : commissioned by Terence G.Johnson, Esq
Description: To start the week is an unusual image from the Poole Collection. Labelled as "The Lodge, Spa, Ballynahinch, Co. Down : commissioned by Terence G.Johnson, Esq", this is unusual in that it is far from his normal range around south Munster and Leinster. This one is labelled as north of the border, apparently in the 1930s when the two parts of the island were going their separate ways.... ....When today's contributors couldn't seemingly find evidence of this house in Spa, County Down, sharon.corbet was (somehow through skill/graft/ESP or a mixture of all) able to confirm why: this isn't County Down at all. Rather, Sharon has confirmed that Poole didn't get this commission from more than 200 miles away in County Down, but from under 30 miles away: in Spa, County Tipperary. Closer to the usual Poole catchment area, and making way more sense, Sharon suggests that the Spa and Ballynahinch area of County Down was mistaken for "Raheen House, Spa, Ballynahinch, Co Tipperary" - where the family of Terence G(reer) Johnston lived...

An
Description: The description on this image states that this is an "Outside Car" and goes on at length to describe the gates and pillars! But are they still there? Where are/were they? They certainly are very ornate and ostentatious. With thanks especially today to derangedlemur, we know that these imposing gates and gatelodge are at the start of the driveway to Muckross House in Killarney, County Kerry. The ironwork (attributed to Richard Perrott of Cork) and pillars and gatelodge (seemingly attributed to William Atkins also of Cork) date to 1860. They were probably built before the arrival of Queen Victoria at Muckross in 1861. And, as [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] suggests in his own enigmatic way, likely intended to impress her madge. The community points-out that you can get an "Outside car" from the same spot today - just outside the gates.

Cockhill, County Donegal
Description: Yet another beautiful Lawrence photograph of rural Ireland at its best! Cockhill near Buncrana in County Donegal looks like a good place to take a few shots - but there may not be a lot happening around there. The river appears to be tidal at that point, yet the watermill on the left is right down on the foreshore(?) Today's contributors point-out that, at ~2km from the sea, the river likely wasn't tidal at this point, so the seemingly low water level may have just been time of year or a recent dry spell :) It's also pointed-out that the millrace feeding the waterwheel is split from the main flow of the River Crana just a few hundred metres up river (off camera to the left). While we don't know what quite the wheel and mill building were "for", the building that now occupies the site is home to the "Old Mill Hair Salon" :) Also discussed today was the prominent church. St Mary's RC church was built in the 1840s, and replaced an earlier structure which was just to the right of shot (in the churchyard behind the white school building)...

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...

All eyes on the charabanc!
Description: For Friday we have a stereo-pairs image of a seafront with houses above a shingle beach, boats pulled up to the hard stand and a most peculiar charabanc with a large group of people on board! While there are people standing around none pay attention to the photographer as all eyes are on the horse drawn transport! What is surrounded by iron railings so close to the sea? This image was quickly identified as the waterfront (Havelock Place) in Warrenpoint, County Down. While there was no immediate confirmation on what the gated area may have been on the pier-front, we thought it could have simply been fencing around a building which is just out of shot.... .... And indeed [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] confirmed since that it was the frontage of "Harbour House" which seems to have stood until at least the first decades of the 20th century.

Irish Jaunting car
Description: The once ubiquitous Irish Jaunting car, or as it was also called, the "side car". Up to the 1950s they were the taxi of choice in most places. Often with little comfort, as one hung-on precariously sideways to the direction of travel. It was a great way of seeing what was on your side of the car but not what was on the opposite side. This fine Lawrence shot shows the Phoenix Monument (which was moved some decades after this shot but is now back where it belongs)....

Mountain Stage, Glenbeigh, Co. Kerry
Description: One of those amazing Lawrence images of poverty, destitution and sheer misery that makes one cringe. Cringe for the people who had to live in such terrible conditions. Some of the worst we had seen were in Donegal but this is in the Kingdom of Kerry, and shows that hard times affected people all over the country. With input from today's contributors we have broadly mapped this image to near Drom in County Kerry. The consensus is that this French image was likely captured in the 1880s. Possibly even c.1887 when, as beachcomber points-out, there were some particularly notorious evictions of families from the Wynn Estate.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860 - 1914. Though certainly before 1900. And likely c.1880s.
