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. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: c.1901 -1954. Though likely c.1901-1908 NLI Ref: POOLEWP 1397 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

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....

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....

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. 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.

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(?)

Mr. Gerald Flood, Castleboro, Clonroche, Co. Wexford

And a handsome family they are too. With thanks to O Mac and sharon.corbet there is strong evidence that this image dates from the 1930s, and that - as Sharon notes - those pictured are (left to right):  Nora, Tim, Ita (standing), Nelly (sitting), Martin, Gerald [Flood] Both boys pictured went on to play inter-county hurling, with the younger Flood winning 3 All-Irelands in the 1950s and 60s....

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...

As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] points-out, that we can see the Post Office in the centre middleground (with it's distinctive pitched gable frontage), we know that this images dates to the first decade or so of the 20th century.

Description: This morning we have a rather bleak looking building, apparently in the middle of nowhere, with a goodly supply of horse manure and a bowler hatted corner boy for local colour.

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....

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.

Roadway showing motor car parked outside house, Mountmellick, Co. Laois
Description: This rural scene appears to have been taken in one of those sunny summer days with the sound of bees buzzing and birds singing clearly in the background. The good old days before Global warming? This is an easy summary to write thanks to O Mac who pointed us to previous research by Paddy Brennan, as a consequence we have identified the location, the owner of the house and the owner of the car!

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.

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.

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.

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. Malton (1761–1803) is perhaps best known for his "Views of Dublin", but what Lawrence captured here was a folio Malton created that was included in the book "History of the City of Dublin: From the Earliest Accounts to the Present Time"....

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....

Yacht : commissioned by Mrs. Stanley Lyons, 62 Leinster Road, Rathmines
Description: A fine days sailing in the offing with a fine yacht decked out with bunting and flags. Given that it was during the Emergency it seems a bit 'off' but I'm sure life went on! We did not discover much about the Yacht. The intrepid derangedlemur identified the location as Dunmore East Co. Waterford. We did learn a little about Mr Stanley Lyon (not Lyons as per our description). He was a statistician and worked for the Government.

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. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Likely c.1901-1910.

The Housekeeper was sacked last week!
Description: The title on this shot is ""Upton", Newtown, smoking room : commissioned by Captain Greathead" which almost sounds like the name of a James Bond movie character! The similarity with the drawing room in a recent Clonbrock image is striking, especially the fussy arrangement and profusion of pictures on the walls. There seems to be some agreement that this photo was taken on Sunday 24th April 1898. Well done to all who spotted this. It seems that the house has been demolished to improve the facilities at De La Salle College. Niall McAuley identifies Harvey Greathed as the owner of the house at the time. Photographer: A. H.

Jewish Bookstore Aaron Beker No 20 Herren Street
Description: In the 1800s the Latvian city of Riga developed a reputation for being culturally open which proved an appealing draw for many Jews who came to settle in the city. Throughout the 1800s the city’s Jewish population continued to grow and many prominent rabbis served the community of Riga at various points. The cultural openness of Riga continued into the early twentieth century and the Jewish population of the city continued to grow – there were over 40,000 Jews in Riga in the years after the end of the First World War. In Riga Jews had a vibrant culture with numerous political factions, religious groups, and cultural institutions existing side by side – and amongst such institutions were small scale pieces of Jewish life such as the Jewish Bookstore operated by Aaron Beker at 20 Herren Street. The onset of World War II brought Jewish life in Riga to a tragic halt. The occupation of the city by the Soviets, from June 1940 to June 1941, brought religious and political persecution; however, such injustices paled in comparison to the horrors wrought by the Nazis when they occupied Riga in July 1941. Many Jews were killed in the Rumbula Massacre, while others were forced into a ghetto, still others were deported to the Kaiserwald concentration camp. The records held by Yad Vashem note many individuals named Aaron Beker who were murdered during the Holocaust; the bookstore owner whose bookstamp is here pictured is likely amongst those victims. 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.

Walker's Monument, Derry City, Co. Derry
Description: From one city of 5 sieges to a city of "The Great Siege" at the other end of the island. With thanks to today's contributors, we learned that this is indeed Walker's Monument/Column, now (given what remains) known as Walker's Memorial Plinth. Built in the 1820s, this was a memorial to George Walker, who was a governor during the Siege of Derry in 1689. Originally 90 feet in height and capped by statue of Walker, not unlike Nelson's Pillar in Dublin, it had an internal staircase and viewing platform. Also similar to Nelson's Pillar however, it was destroyed in an explosion - although the remains of the statue were removed and partially survive elsewhere. With thanks in particular to Niall McAuley for today's inputs, it's suggested that the image may date from the early 20th rather than late 19th century - given that we can't see the original sword in the statue's hand - seemingly blown down in the early 20th century.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date:between ca. 1865-1914 (though possibly later in this range given statue's "missing" sword) NLI Ref: L_CAB_00592 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Cushendall County Antrim
Description: A very Happy St. Brigids day to you all! This, the feast day of Irelands female deity/saint is the herald of Spring and a day for women to celebrate. Labelled in the catalogue as "Antrim, possibly County Glen village, Co. Antrim", we begin the week with a stereo-pairs shot showing a village from on high - possibly with a canal nearby(?) With thanks to today's commenters, we have confirmation that this is indeed County Antrim, and the village of Cushendall. The village was renamed by an 18th and 19th century estate to Newtown Glens, but later reverted to Cushendall - this may perhaps explain the unusual name applied to the image in our catalogue...

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

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.... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939.

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.

Estate and property outside Clonmel
Description: This idyllic rural scene taken from a great height is an unusual one from the Poole Collection. Describing it as an estate seems a bit grand as it looks more like a farm or small holding but where is it? I expected that it would take a while to identify this location and as usual I am surprised at the ease at which the discoveries around here are made. Rory_Sherlock tells us that the photo was taken from Graignagower looking across to Knockatrellane and links us to the OSI map which identifies the building as a Smithy. Niall McAuley then links us to the streetview which confirms that we are talking about the correct location. Niall McAuley further informs us that the Parish is Knockatrellane, and in 1911, there was exactly one blacksmith in the parish: John Farrell, John and Johanna were there in 1901 as well. I think it is a fair bet that the person at the door is either John or Johanna. I am waiting on the name of the Dog. Excellent work today, well done all. Photographer: A. H.

The Old Man of the Holy Well
Description: If ever there was a photograph of a man taking his ease in beautiful surroundings this must be it. A holy well in Sligo from the Eason collection. Well done to B-59 for identifying the location just ahead of Niall McAuley , this is the Tobernalt holy well near to Sligo, Co Sligo. The derivation and meaning of the word "Tobernalt" is uncertain and is open to interpretation. It is an Anglicisation of an Irish phrase, but the uncertainty stems from which actual Irish phrase the name derives from. Eamonn Boylan holds that the name is more likely to mean the "Well in the Cliff" (Tobar san Aill). This would make sense as the stream comes down through a cleft in the mountain immediately behind the well. This can be clearly seen in the photos section. However, others believe that the name may mean "Well of the Insane" (Tobar na nGealt). This interpretation may be given some credence as the Cistercians used the nearby Cottage Island as an asylum for the lepers and insane in medieval times. It's almost certain that these people would have rowed the short distance across the lake to visit the Holy Well in search of a cure.

Fair Day, Glenties, Co. Donegal
Description: A good way to start the week will be to visit Donegal and especially on a fair day. Sheep, cattle, poultry and the craic all in abundance. Hand spitting, hand slapping, walking away and then coming back to close the deal I can hear it and see it as if I were there once more!

Down by the rocky pool!
Description: This Stereo Pair shot of a man standing by a pool in County Clare to end this week. In a week with at least two storms, the waters in this shot are calm and still, perhaps we will have a storm free weekend? Labelled in the catalogue as "stream in foreground., with man standing, big house in background, 3 storey, 7 bays wide, 10ft deep, Co. Clare", we have confirmation thanks to Niall McAuley that this is Ennistimon County Clare. Previously Ennistimon House, the building pictured is now the aptly named Falls Hotel. Given that the Stereo Pair was the "virtual reality" of the 19th century, it also seems apt that streetview offers-up the 21st century equivalent - a near identically placed photosphere image (a navigable 360 degree image that someone captured on their Android phone...)
