On the bridge below the mountain!
Description: While this scene is idyllic, the water looks perfect for fishing and that mountain in the background looks ideal for walking, it is the timing that makes this for me. Either Mr. French timed it perfectly to catch the mail coach just as it crossed the bridge or he persuaded the driver to stop long enough for him to get into position. Either way this is an instant favourite for me! Kudos today for the speed with which [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] identified and helped us map this to Brickeen Bridge in the Muckross Demesne in County Kerry....

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.

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.

'Tom Pudding train' on the canal at Goole 1882 (archive ref DDX882-19)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) The term 'Tom Pudding' was used to describe tub boats on the Aire and Calder Navigation. They were introduced in 1863 and remained in use until 1985. The tub boats carried coal from Stanley Ferry in South Yorkshire to the port of Goole in West Yorkshire (now part of the East Riding). Such was the popularity of the Tom Pudding train that it competed for some time with freight rail transportation.

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://www.flickr.com/photos/[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.

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.

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://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] & [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[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.

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....

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....

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....

There is no sign of motor transport and lots of people; but frighteningly in between the two 'jaunting' cars in the centre is a boot walking all on its lonesome!

Quinsboro Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow
Description: Today we have "Tea on Tuesday" shot from the efforts of the remarkable Mr. French. The "Canton Tea Rooms" must have seemed very exotic in the early years of the last century as visitors to Bray sought some refreshments. With thanks to all for today's contributions, we have confirmation of the precise location (Quinsboro Rd, Bray), time of day (approaching 4pm), a refined date range (perhaps 1905 +/- a few years), and additional information on the shops and shopkeepers pictured. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/turgidson] points out, and as the modern aerial and Streetviews attest, it is interesting to note that the gardens of Westbourne Terrace on the left are now all home to single-storey retail frontages, with the older buildings remaining to the rear....

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.

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....

Survey of Dublin, Co. Dublin
Description: An ancient map of a much smaller Dublin as photographed by Lawrence. The north side appears to have been the poor relation even back then. With thanks to today's contributors, and following from a previous posting of the original image on our other Flickr stream we know that while Lawrence photographed this map in the late 19th or early 20th century, it was drawn by James Malton in the 1780s or 90s, and based on an earlier survey by John Speed in 1610.

Bathing Strand, Co. Wicklow
Description: From the Rocky Road to Glencar to the "golden sands" of Wicklow today. A glorious summer scene with a broad strand dotted with occasional seasonal visitors. I suspect that modern transport has made this a lot busier on sunny days today? Sunny or not, there's no evidence of active bathing in the shot, which - per today's discussion - is expected to be at the very latter end of the given catalogue range. Thanks especially to O Mac, B-59, Niall McAuley and beachcomberaustralia for helping date and locate this French image...

Ballaghbema Pass, Glencar, Co. Kerry
Description: While possibly not overly relevant for the day that's in it - International Women's Day - today's image takes us from the hallowed halls of the Royal Belfast Academical Institution to the rocky narrow road of the Ballaghbema Pass in Glencar, County Kerry. Close to Killarney and Dunloe, and more commonly known as the Ballaghbeama Gap today, this is still a popular tourist driving and cycling route. With thanks to the eagle eyes of today's contributors, we know that the car we see was attached to the nearby Glencar Hotel, with a suggestion that the hotel driver pictured was either James Moriarty or (as he'd likely still have been young at the time), a hotel driver predecessor of his....

Tablet at Abbey, Galway City
Description: Labelled in the catalogue as "Abbey Trench's Tablet, Galway City, Co. Galway", this is the kind of detail that Morning Mary loves to find and shoot herself - so really looking forward to finding out more about the Tablet and Abbey Trench (whoever he was?). Very quickly we learned that the catalogue transcription was likely an error, and that this is not "Trench's Tablet", but "French's Tablet" (in more ways than one). Likely photographed by Robert French in the late-19th or early-20th century, this engraving is part of what remains of the 17th century tomb of the family of Peter French (d.1630s) and his wife Mary Browne. With thanks to sharon.corbet and O Mac we learned that the tomb was destroyed by Cromwellian forces in the mid-17th century. But parts of it incorporated into the walls of the Franciscan Abbey at Francis Street in Galway during the late-18th century. Our intrepid roving reporter O Mac went and captured a "today" shot of the same plaque - confirming that it is still in place. Although with the detail more weathered since French's shot 100+ years prior....

Aasleagh, Assleagh, Co. Galway
Description: For Trusty Thursday we have an architectural mish mash of a house near the beautiful Aasleagh Falls. With thanks in particular today to contributions from B-59, sharon.corbet, DannyM8 , & O Mac, we have confirmation of the subject (Aasleagh Lodge), it's location (close to Leenane on the Galway/Mayo border), and possibly refined date range (likely 1906 +/- 5 years or so). Quite interesting is that we learned that this image would have been a candidate for our "no longer standing" album - had it not been for restoration works undertaken after the house was burned in the 1920s...

Friary Lane, Beverley, c.1865 (archive ref PH-4-7)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) This vintage view of the Minster from Friary Lane is quite interesting as it shows a level crossing over the Hull to Scarborough line where there is now a footbridge. The railway came to Beverley in 1846, courtesy of the Hull and Selby Railway Company, which belonged to George Hudson, the Railway King. At this time the road was part of Chantry Lane, but was renamed Friars Lane in 1928. The station was built on land known as the Trinities, on the site of a medieval hospital. Behind the wall on the right is the Dominican Friary.

General Lord Roberts AKA
Description: This Poole image of a much decorated British General is a fine portrait shot. Kipling adored Roberts and wrote a poem especially about him. THERE’S a little red-faced man,    Which is Bobs, Rides the tallest ’orse ’e can—    Our Bobs. If it bucks or kicks or rears, ’E can sit for twenty years With a smile round both ’is ears—    Can’t yer, Bobs? From our researchers we find that Field Marshal Viscount Roberts came from a Waterford family and he had strong Waterford roots. He was the winner of the Victoria Cross and had accumulated many decorations and awards including Knight of St. Patrick. Among the many positions he held was as the last Commander in Chief of the British Army. Many thanks to Beachcomber Australia, Niall McAuley, Paul O'Farrell and many others for filling in the details on this distinguished soldier. Indeed not to allow Rudyard Kipling to be the only poet on the block Beachcomber composed a limerick especially for "Bobs"! Map and tags updated. Photographer: A. H.

Library of the Riga Infantry School
Description: The Riga Infantry School was founded on September 19th, 1940, shortly after the Soviet Occupation of Latvia in June 1940. From the beginning of the Nazi Invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 until June 29th, both students and teachers of the Riga Infantry School were involved in the fighting. Riga was abandoned by the Soviets and occupied by the German forces on July 1st. The Riga Infantry School reopened on July 13th in the city of Sterlitamak in the Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, this Republic being one of the main destinations of evacuees and evacuated infrastructure and factories during the war. While there, students and officers helped with various tasks as the war situation required, such as helping with laying electrical wire and harvesting crops. The Riga Infantry School was disbanded in 1946. 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.

Bookstore G Gutman Kovno Birstono Street no 10
Description: A census of Kovno from 1923 indicated that 27 percent of the city’s population was Jewish – and the city was the scene of a thriving Jewish community that would befit such a high percentage. The city was home to multiple yeshivas, several Yiddish daily newspapers, a host of mutual aid and other welfare institutions – and all the signs of a city with a vibrant Jewish community in both the religious and secular sense. While the interwar years were a period of growth and stability for the Jews of Kovno this stability was not long lived. In June 1940 the city was occupied by the Soviets and in this period much of the religious life of the city was repressed; however, this tragedy was only deepened a year later when the Nazi’s occupied the city and murdered much of the city’s Jewish population These are bookstamps belonging to a book and religious article shop that was owned by the Gutman family in Kovno. A picture of the exterior of this bookstore can be found in Yad Vashem’s Photo Archive. The image has been digitized and is available at the following link: collections.yadvashem.org/photosarchive/en-us/10891.html 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.

Library of the Metropolitan Flavian
Description: Born Nikolai Gorodetsky into an aristocratic family in Orel, Russia in 1840, the future Metropolitan (the 3rd highest class of rank in the Russian Orthodox Church) dropped out of law school at Moscow University in order to become a monk in the Church. He was accepted first to the St. Nicholas-Speshinsky Monastery and then to the St. Simion Stavropighial Monastery, where he mostly did manual labor until becoming the secretary of the Archimandrite Gury, who was in charge of the Russian ambassadorial Church in Rome. After Rome, he quickly rose in the ranks of the church and served in Kazan, Simferopol, and Bakhchysarai before being sent as a missionary to Beijing, China. Over the course of his ten years in China, he learned Chinese and translated prayer-books as well as other religious texts into Chinese. He returned to Russia in 1884 and was a bishop and later archbishop of Warsaw, among many other places throughout the Russian Empire. In 1903 became the Metropolitan of Kiev. He died of asthma in 1915. 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.

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.

Estate of Rabbi Gaon Reb Dob Baer Ratner
Description: According to the entry in the 1901 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia, Rabbi Dov Baer Ratner was a “Russian Talmudist; born at Wilna about 1845. He is the author of “Mebo la-Seder ‘Olam Rabbath,” on Josef ben Halafta’s historical work (Wilna, 1894); “Seder ‘Olam Rabbah,” a critical edition of the text of the “Seder ‘Olam Rabbah” (ib. 1897); “Ahabat Ziyyon we-Yerushalayim,” variants and additions to the text of the Jerusalem Talmud.” At the time that entry was composed only three of the volumes of “Ahabat Ziyyon we-Yerushalayim,” had been composed, but by the time of his death Rabbi Ratner had completed all twelve volumes of the series. Rabbi Ratner obtained a broad education in matters both secular and religious – and as a young man studied in the yeshivot of Mir and Volozhin. An early advocate of the Zionist movement, Rabbi Ratner was part of the delegation that welcomed Theodor Herzl on his 1903 visit to Vilna. Rabbi Ratner was the for many years the director of the Straschun Library in Vilna, to which he gave his books upon his death. This book stamp attests to Rabbi Ratner leaving his books to the Strashun library in honor of the founder of that library Matisyahu Strashun. Rabbi Dob Baer Ben Abraham Bezaleeel Ratner passed away in 1917. The translation of the full stamp is as follows: "Estate of Rabbi Gaon Reb Dob-Baer Ratner, May his memory be forever a blessing, Held, that his collection would be dedicated to the library of Vilnius Under the name of the Gaon Reb Matisyahu Strashun, may his memory be forever a blessing." 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.

Baruch Kunstadt Dayan
Description: Rabbi Baruch Kunstadt was born in Pressburg (Bratislava, Slovakia) in 1884 and as a young man he studied in that city’s yeshiva – he was the grandson of Rabbi Lippman Kunstadt. From 1907 to 1939 he was the Av-Beit-Din, Rabbinat’s assessor, in the German city of Fulda, but in 1939 he moved to Jerusalem where, along with Rabbi Yechiel Michel Schlesinger, he helped found the Yeshiva Kol Torah which was the first Charedi Yeshiva to teach in Hebrew as opposed to Yiddish. Rabbi Kunstadt died in Israel in 1967. Though Rabbi Kunstadt escaped Germany with his life, the presence of his bookstamp amongst the books recovered from the Nazis is a testament to the life he was forced to leave behind. Today the Yeshiva Kol Torah remains a prominent institution renowned for its high teaching standards – and Rabbi Kunstadt is still revered as one of the Yeshiva’s founders. 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.

Old Grammar School, Beverley c.1816 (archive ref DDPD-1-8-5)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) Beverley Grammar School was founded in 700AD, making it the oldest state school in England. It has not always been in the same place however. One of its former locations was in the southwest corner of Beverley Minster’s churchyard, as seen here in this illustration from around 1816. This stone building was in use from 1609-1816, but a school building had been on the site since medieval times. The only familiar sight from this view, looking west towards Keldgate, appears to be the roof of the building now occupied by the Minster Garth Guest House. The rest of the site is now dominated by trees and headstones.
