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....

Church (Ruins), Waterville, Co. Kerry
Description: Labelled as "St. Fininan's Church (Ruins), Waterville, Co. Kerry", we have an interesting photo from the Eason Collection to start off the week. We are in the Kingdom, and as a Dub I am happy to visit Kerry at any time, but I am always happier to visit when "Sam Maguire" is residing in the Capital. (The Dub Mary!) Based on input from Mosskayree, and corroberation from B-59, we have added this photo to our "Possible Cagalogue Correction" tag. It seems that this is actually very likely Derrynane Abbey, on the appropriately named Abbey Island, near the town of Caherdaniel in County Kerry. Mossy and beachcomberaustralia offer some additional detail on the history and folklore surrounding the abbey in the comments - including its connection to the O'Connell family of Derrynane.....

Description: We are off to the leafy suburbs of South Dublin today courtesy of the Eason collection. I am fully expecting that we can identify the location, the names of the 3 men, the make and model of the fancy motor car and finally the date on which this photo was taken! With usual aplomb (we're barely surprised any more), today's contributors established that this is almost certainly Grange Golf Club in Rathfarnham, most likely captured in the mid-1930s (probably after the new club house opened in 1935), and the car pictured possibly a mid-1930s Morris Motors automobile....

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...

A distinguished gentleman in robes and chain of office sitting on a throne (of sorts)
Description: This fine Poole portrait portraying probably the Lord Mayor of a city to end this week. The robes and chain are very ornate and he is seated on a very finely carved chair - but who is he and what was the office he held? Today's contributors, including [https:[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] and [https:[email protected]] spotted the coat or arms, motto and regalia as those of Waterford - so clearly this is a Waterford mayor. Given that the catalogue date of the image was 1927, it was originally thought that maybe this was John J. Wyley - who was mayor that year. However, various clues didn't support that suggestion (not least the age of the man, the name of the person who comissioned the photo, and a "copy" label in the catalogue entry). There is therefore much stronger evidence that the mayor pictured is Henry Grainger, who was mayor in 1898. It seems likely a family member (probably a daughter) commissioned a copy from the Poole studio during the 1920s.... Photographer: A. H.

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:[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:[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)....

Hopefully everything is
Description: Here two small ships lie on the mud where the tide has gone out and to prevent the cargo and fittings from moving and tipping the vessel over it was necessary to have them "Ship Shape and Bristol Fashion"! The tide at Bristol rises and falls up to 14 metres and so a vessel that did not have its fittings and cargo tied down was in danger of tipping over and being swamped by the incoming tide! This is a long way from Bristol but where? Based on sterling investigations by derangedlemur (and independent corroboration by sharon.corbet and KiloSierraDelta) it is confirmed that this is Quoile Quay close to Downpatrick in Northern Ireland. This part of the Quoile River was clearly navigable and the storehouses on the quay indicate a reasonable amount of traffic and trade. While some other aspects of this scene have changed, the frontage of the storehouses seem to remain - incorporated into a modern residential development...

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.

A Belfast scene!
Description: The full title/description for this shot was too long and confusing for use on a Monday morning so I summarised it slightly :) A Belfast scene with lots to view and plenty of life going on. It immediately brought to mind James Craigs poem about Belfast: "Red brick in the suburbs, white horse on the wall, Eyetalian marbles in the City Hall: O stranger from England, why stand so aghast? May the Lord in His mercy be kind to Belfast." While we had a notion of location, today's contributors have helped refine the 25 year date range to perhaps a decade or so between the mid-1870s and the upper catalogue range of the mid-1880s. One of the more interesting features here (described in the catalogue entry as "iron feature, possibly a fountain") is the Jaffe Memorial Fountain. Seemingly built by Belfast's only Jewish mayor, Otto Jaffe, the "memorial" in question was to Jaffe's own father - who funded Belfast’s first synagogue. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/vab2009] points out that, after 70 years in Belfast's botanic gardens, the fountain has since been moved back to this original location...

Knocka Castle, Templemore, Co. Tipperary
Description: Back to County Tipperary once more - but to the North Riding this time. Knocka Castle in ruins near Templemore looks to have been once a great house with a Norman tower nearby for refuge (perhaps in case the Whiteboys or Moonlighters come calling). Templemore, which we now associate with law and order was a place of much violent action during the "Troubles" including the burning down of castles - but this ruins seems to date from well before that! Based on today's contributions, we learned a bit more about the two structures captured here by French. In the foreground, according to the 19th century OSI maps. is Knockagh House. And in the background is Knockagh Castle. We learned that (per sharon.corbet) the older Norman-era(?) tower house in the background still stands. But that the house in the foreground, which had seemingly been in ruin for at least a century prior, was (per Carol Maddock) fully demolished in the early- or mid-20th century.

Pioneering Scouts Youth Organization Hashomer Hatzair in Lithuania
Description: Founded in 1913, as a merger between Tse’ire Agudat Tsiyon and Ha-Shomer, the organization Hashomer Hatzair was a Zionist-socialist youth movement that trained young people to immigrate to kibbutz in Palestine. The organization was founded in Galicia but expanded throughout Europe in the 1920s – by the late 1920s the organization had over ten thousand members, a number which had more than doubled by the start of WWII. The mixture of Zionism and socialism at the core of Hashomer Hatzair and its focus upon encouraging immigration set the organization apart from other youth organizations of the time that were either less expressly political or less focused (or hostile to) the cause of Zionism – while members of the organization who had already immigrated pushed the organization further and further to the left. With the onset of WWII many members of the organization attempted to get to Palestine, while others fled from the Nazis, even as others fell victim to their onslaught. Many members of Hashomer Hatzair became prominent leaders in the anti-Nazi resistant movements such as Haykah Grossman, Mordekhai Anielewicz, and Abba Kovner. This bookstamp belonged to a branch of Hashomer Hatzair active in Kovno – attesting to the fact that many of the branches of the organization had libraries. Hashomer Hatzair is still an active organization today. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

Blackadder Hotel, Ballynahinch, Co. Galway
Description: Blackadder Hotel? Who would have thought that Blackadder would have gone forth from West Galway and from such a beautiful setting. This is up there with the most scenic Lawrence photographs we have seen. With thanks today to sharon.corbet, B-59, beachcomber, and guliolopez we have been able to map this image to the Angler's Return Hotel near Toombeola, County Galway. We also learned that Walter Blackadder (innkeeper and head of the Ballynahinch trout and salmon fishery) was well known in fishing and game circles in that part of the world for some years. The consensus is that this image is unlikely to be before 1895 (when Blackadder possibly took-over as both local innkeeper and gamekeeper)....

Trinity College, Brian Boro's Harp, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: The Harp that once through Tara's halls... Well it may have been heard in Kincora? Here we see the Trinity College (or Brian Boru) harp as it was following (what the Wikipedia article describes as) a "bad restoration" of the 1830s. A bad restoration or not, it was in the form we see here that the harp became the model for the coat of arms of Ireland, the Guinness logo, the coins of Ireland, etc. It was subject to a more complete (and better received) restoration in the 1960s. As contributors to the discussion below point-out, while legend implies that the harp once belonged to the 11th century High King Brian Boru, more concrete evidence dates it to the 15th century. Following restoration in the 1960s, the harp was dramatically stolen from and returned to Trinity College, Dublin. The ancient harp continues to be displayed in the long room of the library at Trinity.

Navigation bridge (iron) on curved lock, dock on canal entrance, another bridge, towns old mill, hills, in background
Description: On a dull and dreary morning in Ireland a bright and sun filled stereo pairs image of a canal/dock. The young man leaning over the railing looking at the water is doing what young men have done across the ages - watching the world go by! Given the washed out detail we thought this might prove to be difficult to locate? However, our contributors were able to adjust the contrast slightly, bringing more of the detail easier to make out, and helping confirm the location as the bridge over the Tralee Ship Canal. We can also see Blennerville's distinctive windmill in the background. (The latter coincidentally appearing in some VT during this evening's Rose of Tralee festival coverage :) ) Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: between ca. 1860-1883 NLI Ref: STP_1778 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Industrial Schools, Letterfrack, Co. Galway
Description: Nestling under a twin of the Sugar Loaf Mountain is the Industrial School of Letterfrack. Set in the far wilds of Connemara it was known a feared place for its young occupants as much by reason of its dramatic location! Today's contributions (thankfully/unusually downbeat) highlighted how the pictured St Joseph's Industrial School, while initially set up with likely positive intentions, was so heavily referenced in the reports of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse that St Joseph of Letterfrack was labelled as "the cruel saint" by some. As per the comments below, based on the layout of the buildings pictured, it is expected that the 5 decade catalogue range (c.1860s-1910s) can be refined to perhaps a decade or so (c.1900-1910s)....

Frescati House, Blackrock
Description: Once one of the great houses of Dublin and today a shopping mall, the demolition of this building was viewed by quite a few as a "monumental act of vandalism". B-59 draws our attention to the Frescati House Wikipedia article which covers its history and association with the FitzGerald family and United Irishmen. Perhaps most interesting however (made relevant in recent times with events affecting other 18th century manor homes) are the sections of the Wikipedia article dealing with the 15 year fight to save Frescati from demolition. Ultimately unsuccessfully.....

Buckingham Palace, London (with French sub-titles)
Description: A rare visit to the Stereo Pairs collection takes us out foreign, to Bucks House no less and the "Picture Gallery". The titles as inserted on the slide are in French which may raise questions as to its provenance and source(?) [https:[email protected]] that the image was a work by the studios of Ferrier, Soulier & Levy (Wikipedia) who did glass stereographs (note similar image with comparable French sub-text). It's suggested that the image was taken close to the middle of the 1860-1880s range - but certainly some time before redevelopment of the room and its ceiling in the early 20th century....

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....

Miss Joan Musgrave, elder, on horse, hair stripe in coat
Description: Miss Musgrave on her horse from the Poole collection. The well manicured lawn and gravel drive denote a "Big" house and privilege. Any bets on the name of the horse? Our researchers traced this lady and discovered that she changed from Miss Musgrave to Mrs Joan Jameson (1892–1953). (The Jameson's of course of the noted whiskey distillers of Dublin.) She was an accomplished artist and exhibited many times in Dublin and London. Thank you all for your contributions and help! Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range 1901-1954.

The Apprentice Boys Memorial aka
Description: Today we move from the far south of Waterford to the far north of Derry and a memorial to the Apprentice Boys there. A surprisingly modest memorial to such an historically important group. This shot from Derry/Londonderry didn't arouse a lot of interest today, but it appears that the memorial is not so much to the Apprentice Boys themselves as it is to the unknown people interred in a mass grave near St. Columbs Cathedral following the siege. Swordscookie found an account of where the bones of those interred were being taken to be dumped into land reclamation at the river and local people objected. The remains were then taken back to the cathedral and interred in the "Heroes Mound" The correct title for this image might rightly be "The Heroes Mound Memorial"?

Curraghmore, Portlaw, Co. Waterford
Description: We may have moved to the Lawrence Collection today but we remain firmly in Poole territory of Waterford. This magnificent pile may not have survived the "Troubles" but if it has it would make a most interesting place to visit. This proved to be a red herring as though the catalogue entry was labelled "Annaghmore", this proved to be "Curraghmore House" - the home of the Marquis of Waterford, and a place we have visited here many times in the past. Thank you one and all for your help in clearing up the confusion! What is particularly pleasing about this is that the old pile did indeed survive the "Troubles" intact!

Description: The somewhat long catalogue label for this image is "Bridge of three arches over river in foreground, street with terraces of chequered front houses in middle ground". While I must admit this seems desperately familiar (and fighting a feeling of déjà vu that we have visited this bridge before), today's "location unknown" image comes from the Stereo Pair collection. Are we losing it? Have we been here before? Where is "here"...? With thanks to Mike Grimes, B-59, beachcomber, and O Mac, the location was quickly confirmed as Bann Bridge in Portadown. Captured possibly on a busy market day. The bridge was extensively rebuilt 50 or so years after this 1870s(?) image - many of the distinctive terraced houses on the right do not survive.

The photographers den?
Description: We are in Waterford again today the home city of Mr A.H. Poole. I wonder if this is the studio where all of our fantastic Poole portraits were taken or is it just an outlet for the products we can see in the window? Today's discussion focused on what may have prompted Poole to capture this shot of his premises on the Quay in Waterford, immediately adjacent to the historic Reginald's Tower. Possibly it had recently been renovated - an "after" shot to compare to the "before" also in the catalogue. In any event, while we've focused in the past on Poole's photographic studio at 34 The MalI, we hadn't really paid much attention to his shop/outlet - which lay just around the corner at 134 the Quay. As our contributors point-out, some of the Poole images we've shared over the years were taken from the upper windows of both these premises... Photographer: A. H.

Something Fishy
Description: An unusual Poole photo for you today. Our catalogue states that this is the Duke of Devonshire fishing, I presume he is fishing on the Munster Blackwater, unless of course you know something different.... While perhaps still none-the-wiser on the embellishments to today's image, today's contributors (and especially [https:[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] & [https:[email protected]]) have confirmed that this image was likely taken between 1901 and 1908. When Spencer Cavendish was 8th Duke of Devonshire. The consensus is that the image was taken on the Munster Blackwater - if not close to the family's seat at Lismore, then perhaps slightly downstream.... Photographer: A. H.

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).

West Beach, Queenstown, Co. Cork
Description: While we have been to Queenstown/Cobh before this fine Lawrence shot of the West Beach has lots of interest. Those skifs and the people around add interest to the scene with occasional ghosts to liven things up! With the help of the businesses (and their advertising), our intrepid contributors have refined the near 50 year range of the catalogue dates to perhaps 5 to 10 years in the early 20th century. The Emerson's Bromo Selzter advert on front of O'Sullivan's chemists was likely put in place around the same time (if a lot less longstanding) as the 1911 Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower in the company's home state of Maryland....

Prince Albert's statue, Leinster Lawn
Description: Prince Albert and four others, this could make for an interesting Friday. I wonder where it is now? I am intrigued by the orientation of this Lawrence photo, we do not get a portrait presentation very often. (Edit - I have had a look and there are some but it is a very low percentage) With thanks to all the amazing contributions today, including inputs from Niall McAuley, B-59, sharon.corbet, beachcomberaustralia and Houses of the Oireachtas it is confirmed that this statue is still on Leinster Lawn, close to the entrance to the Natural History Museum in Dublin. The Prince Albert statue, together with the companion allegorical sculptures representing Art, Science, Industry and Agriculture, is by John Henry Foley (1818-1874) and seemingly one of the last of its type in a municipal public setting in the capital....

Street, Gorey, Co. Wexford
Description: We travel someway south of Newry to the town of Gorey today. I love this photograph especially the finials atop the telegraph poles and the fancy bed in the right foreground. Combined with the bed, we have broomsticks outside T Byrne's on the left - making for our first filmic reference: "Bedknobs and Broomsticks". And continuing the movie theme there seems to be a "Man on Ledge" standing entirely outside an upper-floor window of #78 Main Street. With thanks to the Wexford Echo newspaper poster (also outside Byrne's) and investigations by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] it seems plausible that we're in the middle of the provided catalogue range - possibly the 1920s...

Hill Street, Hounds
Description: It is a while since we had two consecutive Eason photos, today we are in Hill Street, Newry, County Down. Such a lot going on and some nice motors to be identified. Today's contributions focused on two key business premises on Hill Street - specifically the Shelbourne Bakery which had been in business a quarter century even by the time of this shot, and the Ulster Bank opposite. Investigations on the motor vehicles pictured helped narrow the almost 40 year range to perhaps a decade or so after 1928/29....

Main Street, Midleton, Co. Cork
Description: A new week and we start off with a photo from the lovely town of Midleton. I think something looks staged in this one, what do you think? With thanks in particular today to the contributions of Niall McAuley, derangedlemur, Carol Maddock, and guliolopez it is confirmed that the motor car pictured (IF789) was registered from c.1914 to John Joseph Walshe, who was bank manager of the Munster & Leinster Bank branch which dominates the right of the image. The 1911 census lists the Walshe household as including JJ Walshe, his wife Cicily (Nano) Walshe, and servants John Lynch and Janie Goggin. As they seem to be well aware of the shot being taken, it seems plausible that there may have been an association with the photographer (supporting our theory that this isn't quite a candid shot). And seems equally likely that at least some of those listed in this census are pictured at the open door of the bank, and almost certainly in the car itself (where intriguingly we note that the man in chauffeur garb is sitting in the back seat!) Thanks also to beachcomberaustralia for info on the likely car model and on the corner of "Goose's Acre" in the immediate foreground....

Earl Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath
Description: Another fine Lawrence street shot taken by the inimitable Mr. French to start our week! Here we have not only a goodly, straight and clean street but the denizens thereof watching the artist as he takes their image for posterity. Looking at the lady with the donkey and cart dressed in a shawl and bowler hat it strikes me how closely that dress resembles the dress of the women in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador in the high Andes. Can anybody see the man with one leg? Thanks to all of today's contributors - including to [https:[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] who draw our attention to the street names. Including that the main street we see ("Earl Street") was renamed (to "Pearse Street") in the decades that followed this image, while one of the side-streets has an Irish language street sign (later standardised to "Boithrín Tobar an Sconna")...

House of Ethics Rabbi Yisrael Salanter
Description: House of Ethics. The Foundation, Our Master, Our Teacher, and Our Rebbe (admur) Rabbi Yisrael Salanter. Kovno Born in Lithuania in 1810, Rabbi Yisra’el ben Ze’ev Volf Salanter (also known as Lipkin) was a prominent Rabbi and is the founder of the first Musar society. As a young man Salanter was sent to study Torah with Rabbi Tsevi Hirsh Broyda, during his studies Salanter came into contact with Yosef Zundel through whom Salanter became interested in questions regarding moralistic and ethical teachings. For Salanter it was not enough for Jews to observe the commandments and be committed to the study of Torah, they also needed to devote themselves to ethical improvement. This led Salanter to found a “Musar house” in Vilna where ethical texts were studied and where Salanter delivered lectures. Throughout his life Salanter moved around establishing “Musar houses” in many cities in Eastern and Western Europe. The teachings of the Musar movement were somewhat controversial in Salanter’s lifetime and the standards for moral improvement were highly demanding of adherents. Though Rabbi Salanter died in 1883, the Musar movement outlived him, with the movement expanding in the nineteenth century as Salanter’s disciples became involved in yeshivas. This bookstamp came from the Musar House (the “house of ethics”) in Kovno. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

The Square, Fermoy, Co. Cork
Description: Another angle on the Square, Fermoy with our backs to the River Blackwater. We have seen this square before but usually looking out across the bridge. It is surprising to see how dominated the town is by the convent and church buildings on the heights. With thanks to today's contributors, though we've visited the square before, we learned a little more about the history of the Loreto Convent in the background, and the businesses on Queen's Square in the foreground. Appreciation is due in particular to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] for his investigations that allow us to narrow the 50 year catalogue range (1860s-1910s) to a decade or so (1880s-1890s)...

Post Office, Carnlough, Co. Antrim
Description: A familiar bridge but a different focus. We have seen this bridge before from the other side. But today, the focus is on the Post Office at Carnlough in Co. Antrim. The scene really has a charm all its own! With thanks to today's contributors, there's a suggestion that this image may date from the latter half of the catalogue range - possibly early 20th rather than late 19th century. If so, those pictured at the Post Office door may be members of the McSparron family, who were running it at the time of the 1901 and later 1911 census....

Description: ...I know, I know. Someone in Library Towers was on the sauce last evening but it wasn't me :) Clearly this image is of the cathedral on the Rock of Cashel. How its label was transmogrified to become "Crawford's Burn Bridge and Waterfall" is a mystery. Then again the devil's race against Fionn MacCumhaill did begin up near the Burn and ended near Cashel(?)

And a handsome family they are too.

Bird's Eye View, Lurgan, Co. Armagh
Description: Before the days of helicopters and drones a church steeple or high hill provided a "birds eye view" as in this shot. Lurgan appears a well developed town with industry and institutions aplenty back when this shot was taken. Thanks to today's contributions we know that the photographer captured this from a high vantage point on Lurgan's Shankill Parish Church (COI), looking north - along the aptly named North Street - towards St Peter's Church (Cath). We have yet to refine the date significantly, but it's obviously before the removal of the gas holders off Ulster Street....

The Square, Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow
Description: A fine shot today from the Eason Collection with old forms of transport occupying a broad square but with perhaps a crowd(?) in the distance. The catalogue date range puts this in the first quarter of the 20th century, and the information that Niall McAuley provides for the visible Michael Dwyer memorial corroborates that. Thanks to beachcomberaustralia for sharing some extra detail on Michael Dwyer himself. We're not sure what has drawn the small crowd in the background by Chapel Hill, but the collection of carts suggests a mart on the east-side of Market Square...

Theatre Royal, Hawkins Street, Dublin
Description: For many years an iconic building in the heart of Dublin it was torn down much to the dismay of many Dubliners and theatre goers! The streetview of this won't be pretty! I have always felt that I missed out on something important in never having attended the Theater Royal. Alas, it had been demolished a few years after I was born. I remember well my parents and grandparents speaking fondly of many excellent shows they had seen there. I am convinced by the research, particularly from Niall McAuley that this photo was taken sometime between 1910 to July 1912 and I have updated the date range accordingly.

On Devenish Island Lower Lough Erne, Co. Fermanagh
Description: This crisp image of ancient ruins on Devenish Island in Co. Fermanagh for Tower Thursday! That gable looked in good condition then, what does it look like now? From Wikipedia: Devenish or Devinish (from Irish: Daimhinis, meaning "ox island") is an island in Lower Lough Erne, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Aligned roughly north–south, it is about one and a quarter miles long and two-thirds of a mile wide. The main place to catch a ferry to the island is at Trory Point, just outside Enniskillen. Devenish Island is owned by the Kilravock Christian Trust. Devenish contains one of the finest monastic sites in Northern Ireland. A round tower thought to date from the 12th century is situated on the island, as are the walls of the Oratory of Saint Molaise who established the monastery in the 6th century, on a pilgrim route to Croagh Patrick in County Mayo. It became a centre of scholarship and although raided by Vikings in 837 and burned in 1157, it later flourished as the site of the parish church and St Mary's Augustinian Priory.

Distillery, Bushmills, Co. Antrim
Description: A simple description for an old image of one of the Irelands and the worlds most famous distilleries! Bushmills! The name speaks for itself! What a nice photograph to warm the heart on this very cold Spring day. From Wikipedia: The Old Bushmills Distillery is a distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. As of December 2014, it was in the process of transitioning from ownership by Diageo plc to Jose Cuervo. All of the whiskey bottled under the Bushmills whiskey brand is produced at the Bushmills Distillery and uses water drawn from Saint Columb's Rill, which is a tributary of the River Bush. The distillery is a popular tourist attraction, with around 120,000 visitors per year. The company that originally built the distillery was formed in 1784, although the date 1608 is printed on the label of the brand – referring to an earlier date when a royal licence was granted to a local landowner to distil whiskey in the area. After various periods of closure in its subsequent history, the distillery has been in continuous operation since it was rebuilt after a fire in 1885.

Description: We are with Fergus O'Connor today. I find this a most fascinating photograph. Can you please tell me two things, firstly I would like to know the location and secondly I would like to know what exactly is going on in the right foreground? With thanks for today's contributions, it's established that this is the Upper Lake at Killarney. As to what's happening in the right foreground (the photo-bombed "arrest" by a truncheon wielding lawman), we've heard several theories. But nothing to explain the odd dichotomy of serene landscape and (possibly staged) action/commotion. Perhaps it will always remain a mystery - as perhaps was intended....

Badly in need of a landscaper!
Description: This fine old building looks neglected and abandoned all those years ago, is it even there now? And the short answer is: yes - it's Assembly's College (now part of Queens University Belfast) The longer answer, with particular thanks to [https:[email protected]], and additional contributions from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] is that this image may have been taken relatively early in the 1860-1883 catalogue range. Possibly as part of a series which captured a number of buildings by Charles Lanyon around Belfast. Some of which we've visited recently. Some solid arguments for date and impetus behind the likely commission in the comments below...

Two-storey classical style modern building - is Crumlin Road Courthouse in Belfast
Description: This splendid building can hardly be a Railway Station? We thought it must surely be a municipal building like a parliament, senate office or even art gallery... ... and with thanks to Niall McAuley, Greg Carey, and robinparkes who almost consecutively identifed this as Crumlin Road Courthouse in Belfast. O Mac notes that archtectural elements from our 19th century image differ from how it looks now. And unfortunately, per the drone flyby video that beachcomberaustralia shares, fires at the empty and undeveloped site have in recent decades have left the building a (literal) shell of its former self...

Berkley Sq, London W1
Description: A Poole Collection image from London no less with a fine building on "Berkley" Square in London. With thanks to today's contributors we have confirmation that this is Lansdowne House off Berkeley Square. Home to several Prime Ministers, the house was demolished in sections through the early 20th century, with this capture likely before works in the mid-1920s. What remains today is used by the Lansdowne Club... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: catalogue date ca.1901-1954, but likely pre-1925 NLI Ref: POOLEWP 0903 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

A sharp bowed paddle steamer with raked masts and smoke stack!
Description: This Great Western paddle steamer moored close to Waterford makes a fine Poole image to begin the week. With thanks today to AndyBrii, sharon.corbet, O Mac, beachcomberaustralia and especially ofarrl, we have confirmation of subject, date, and a concrete location for this image. Specifically, it is understood that this is the paddle steamer PS Milford, which operated on the GWR's Milford Haven to Waterford route from 1874. It is pictured on the North Wharf of Waterford, close to Ferrybank - likely later in its career, prior to the ship being broken-up in 1901. Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: catalogue range ca.1901-1954, but no later than end of 1901 NLI Ref: POOLEWP 0150a You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

St. Patrick healing a sick man while the crowd stand by and marvel at his faith!
Description: According to the Confession of St. Patrick and other texts, St. Patrick was born in Wales and as a boy was captured by Irish raiders and taken to be a slave. Herding sheep on Slemish in modern Northern Ireland he eventually managed to make his way back home. He became a priest and was sent back to evangelise on the island of Ireland. He was so successful that the entire island was converted within 100 years of his arrival. Today 17 March, the feast day of St. Patrick, we, the three Marys and all at NLI, wish you a very happy St. Patricks Day and thank you for your support and company.

Union of Food Workers Lozovsky Club
Description: The Lozovsky referred to in this stamp is most likely Solomon Lozovsky, a prominent Bolshevik and, during the times he was expelled from the Bolshevik Party (in 1914 and 1918), a Mezhraionets (a Russian Social Democratic Party faction straddling the ideological territory between the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks). He was a long-time revolutionary and a high official in various capacities in the Soviet Union. His Soviet political credentials were serious – at various times Presidium member of the All-Union Central Council of Soviet Trade Unions, Supreme Soviet member, Deputy People's Commissar for foreign affairs (answering to Molotov), and head of the Soviet Information Bureau (Sovinformburo). He was also the chair of the department of International Relations at the Higher Party School and General Secretary of the Red International Labour Union (Profintern). A Union club being named in Solomon Lozovsky’s honor is in line with his extensive involvement with labor unions throughout much of his career. This stamp is a testament to the existence of libraries in Union social institutions in the Soviet Union. He was born in Ukraine to Jewish parents and was a member of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. He was murdered together with thirteen other members of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in 1952 during Stalin’s anti-Semitic campaigns of the late 1940s and early 1950s. This event came to be known as the Night of the Murdered Poets, as five of the thirteen victims were Yiddish writers. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here. For more information on this project check the Center’s blog: 16thstreet.tumblr.com/tagged/Offenbach-Depot Dr. Mitch Fraas, Acting Director of the Digital Humanities Forum at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries' Special Collections Center is working on a similar project for the German book stamps based on NARA microfilm of the volumes the American Jewish Historical Society currently holds.
