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"....

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....

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...

Description: A fine Lawrence shot of a fine Dublin establishment. The Blackhorse Tavern AKA "The Hole in the Wall" pub on Blackhorse Avenue. The late President Sean T. O'Kelly was reputed to slip out of the nearby Áras for a bottle of stout. With thanks to everyone for their contributions, we learned today how the pub got it's nickname, the publican(s) that made it what it is, that it is Dublin's "longest pub", and a little about the coin-operated machines out front...

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.

Description: On a bright if cold day in Dublin we have a shot taken on a bright summers(?) day in Malahide. I admit to not knowing if Seapark House still exists. The sad news is that the house no longer exists, It was demolished and lots of new houses were built on the site. There is a dog in the photo so for you dog lovers that is two in two days.

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.

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.

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...

Democratic Zionists Guild Hakhsharah
Description: Many Zionist groups throughout Europe worked to actively prepare their members for eventual immigration. Therefore, numerous “Haksharah” (Zionist Training Farms) were set up to provide young Zionists with the types of agricultural experience that they would need once they left Europe and arrived in, what was then, Palestine. These training farms were set up by various different Zionist groups in various locations throughout Europe, though the farms were usually affiliated with various branches of Labor Zionism. This stamp attests to the fact that in addition to having various agricultural tools, some of these training farms also had libraries. The city of Kharkov was an important hub of Jewish activity in the late nineteenth century – it was home to a vibrant Jewish community and was an important center for Zionist activity which included, evidently, Zionist training farms. 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.

A meeting of waters... is Belleek, Co. Fermanagh
Description: This beautiful scene with a stream joining a larger river just above a bridge makes a scene that many photographers would love to shoot today! With thanks especially today to the keen eyes and memory of O Mac we have confirmation that this is the River Erne at Belleek on the Fermanagh/Donegal border. Sharon.corbet points out that the building to the left is the renowned Belleek Pottery works - completed per Niall McAuley in 1862. Niall also tells us that the river, bridge and waterfall look so different today because of drainage and other works completed in the 1880s....

Michael's Lane, Dublin City
Description: Today we go from the grandeur of the Great Northern Hotel to inner city Dublin with plenty of life and points of interest to ponder. Is that a "Fagins" of urchins on the left foreground? What do you call a group of urchins? Apart from what to call the gaggle/huddle of "urban youth" on the left, with thanks especially to Niall McAuley, swordscookie, sharon.corbet, pellethepoet, O Mac and others, we learned a lot about Michael's Lane close to Christ Church in Dublin. We learned that this image was likely taken close to the end of the 19th or very early 20th century. When the lane was a particularly poverty stricken area - with between 3 and 4 families to each small house on the lane. The main profession (as seemingly evidenced by what we see hanging around - other than the kids) was that of "clothes broker". A trade also plied on nearby Winetavern St/Michael's Hill. See the full set of comments for links, images and the 1914 inquiry into the conditions on the lane - published shortly before the area was redeveloped to more closely resemble how it appears today.

The actual title for this was "Large domestic or institutional building possibly hotel 3 storeys, 15-16 bays wide, drive, balustrades, ditto on porch, near sea, wooded hills in background, Co. Down". We thought that it was the Mournes in the background .... And indeed today's commenters, in particular Niall McAuley, sharon.corbet, and beachcomberaustralia, confirmed that this is the Mourne Hotel (later Great Northern Hotel) in Rostrevor, County Down. Opened in the late 1870s (likely very shortly before this image was taken), the hotel was destroyed during the Troubles in the 1970s.

Description: The recent scenes from Salthill in Galway are in marked contrast to the beautiful still conditions in this lovely Lawrence image of (allegedly) the same spot. We thought it was perhaps too calm to be the west coast. And indeed today's commenters have provided evidence that, though labelled as "Salthill Hotel, Salthill, Co. Galway" in our catalogue, this is more likely to be Co. Dublin. Though confirmed to be the "Salthill Hotel", this image was captured not in County Galway, but in Monkstown, close to Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin. With thanks in particular to AndyBrii, Niall McAuley, B-59, and RETRO STU for insights on the location, and sharon.corbet, beachcomberaustralia and O Mac on the details which helped refine the range by a further 2 decades....

Portumna Castle
Description: To Portumna beside the Shannon and to a ruin before the desolation of the War of Independence and the Civil War. This once fine old building appears as an empty shell in this Lawrence/French shot ... however today's commenters and investigators report that the building looks much better now, having been restored since this image was captured. Amongst the interesting nuggets of location, history and excavation information provided by sharon.corbet, B-59 and Niall McAuley is confirmation that there were two great houses in the Portumna Demesne - one of which was destroyed in the 1920s, but the other was damaged by fire in the 1820s (during renovation work to an earlier 17th century fortified house). It is the latter that we see here - a building that wasn't fully restored until the 1980s. John Spooner also highlights a very unexpected connection with our recent eviction series - that a battering-ram used in some evictions had been made from a tree from Portumna lands. Thanks also to beachcomberaustralia for linking us to the interesting aerial/drone footage. Lots to digest today - Thanks all!

Government House, Cork City, Co. Cork
Description: Back to the Holy Ground today and a bit of grandeur with a building titled "Government House" no less! This beautiful building wasn't familiar to us, and we did hope that it is still extant. However, the community confirmed that Government House on Sidney Hill, Cork, while once the home to the "Governor of the Cork Military District", was destroyed by fire during events in the city in the early 1920s..

Donkeys in the field
Description: Welcome back all and a Happy New Year to everyone! I haven't seen so many asses since the fair in Spancil Hill! Donkeys in the field would suggest that we know where the field is but do we? The consensus from the community comments below is that this image is part of a Poole series covering donkey export - possibly eventually onto a steamship at Waterford for export to Durban. So it seems likely "the field" was a holding area close to Waterford city. The other images in the series (and information provided by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and [https:[email protected]] others) suggest that the image dates from the earliest decade or so of the 1901-1954 catalogue range...

Kiev Workers School no 85
Description: After the Russian Revolution, and the subsequent civil war, the Communist leaders in the Soviet Ukraine embarked on a project to reconstruct the devastated regions along Marxist-Leninist lines. Part of this project involved a commitment to creating new schools and encouraging the population to become better educated. Much of the reasoning behind this push for education was the Soviet state’s recognition that it needed a better educated citizenry to accomplish the rapid modernization that was being advocated for by party leaders. In addition to reshaping elementary and secondary education, as well as university education, Workers schools (often called robfaks) appeared to provide further technical and ideological training to workers. Admission to one of the robfaks was contingent upon the recommendation of the local Communist party – at these schools the worker/students would receive further professional educational training, bolstered by the presence of facilities such as libraries. While most of the Workers schools conducted instruction in Ukrainian, Russian, or a mix of the two – there still were some Workers schools at which the language of instruction was Yiddish as is demonstrated by this stamp from a Workers School in Kiev. 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.

Fair Green, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway
Description: Today we have a magnificent Fair Green in Ballinasloe which if my Irish serves me right translates as "The town of the gatherings (or crowds)". There was certainly plenty of room for such gatherings as might assemble here - and not only do we see evidence of that in the wagons and traction engine here, but there's tents on the green in the 2005 OSI and 2011 Streetview that O Mac and Niall McAuley shared with us. We don't yet have a date for when our wagons were on the green, but the consensus seems to be that this was late 19th century or perhaps very very early 20th century. Thanks also to Beachcomber for the 19th century contemporary descriptions of fairs on the green...

Justingrad Library Society
Description: Justingrad was a shtetl created after Jews were expelled from the nearby village of Sokolovka in 1825 in accordance with a decree by Nicholas I of Russia which expelled non-farmer Jews to special Jewish settlements which would be called shtetlakh. Around the turn of the century many of the Jews of Justingrad immigrated to the United States. In 1919, there was a brutal pogrom in Justingrad, in which Jews were murdered and Jewish women raped. Justingrad was destroyed by the Nazis in July 1941, shortly after the invasion of the Soviet Union. The land on which it once stood is now used as farmland and grazing land for livestock. 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.

Cottage with fine tied down, thatch, F Kane, licensed tobacco dealer, outside car, people
Description: How times have changed, the establishment was required to have a sign above the door showing that they were licensed to sell tobacco. Today they could not even consume tobacco in the premises. With thanks to all the contributors below, it seems pretty certain that this is the Kane "Temperance Tea Rooms" (later "Kane's Royal Hotel"), at the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim. The date of the image is very likely c.1870 (+/- 6 or 7 years) and possibly c.1866. See the comments below for other images, adverts and items related to the hotel - which remained within the Kane family through at least the first half of the 20th century - but is now demolished.

Mr. Austin's servants
Description: Tuesday's child is meek and mild as a good servant should be and "Mr. Austin" (whoever he was) had a group of handsome servants to cater for his household. We wondered who he could have been, and where his household was photographed? As usual the community has offered some very strong information on both subject and location. Beachcomberaustralia highlighted that we have some other photos associated with a "Mr. Austin" including one of his house. And, sharon.corbet, O Mac and guliolopez reminded us that we have seen this house before - Larkfield in Ferrybank on the Kilkenny/Waterford border - and that it was then associated to Mr. Duffin an architect engineer. While we thought perhaps there had been some confusion, and yorkshire.images offered a considered theory that we had a transcription issue in the catalogue, ofarrl was able to find an 1885 record of a "Major Austin" hosting an auction of contents at Larkfield House. So it seems possible that those pictured were indeed members of the Austin household - though perhaps a later generation of Austins.... Photographer: A. H.

The Square, Parsonstown (Birr, Co Offaly)
Description: From an obelisk to a column, from Drogheda to Parsonstown, from the Orange Order to the Liberator "Butcher" Cumberland. Originally we thought perhaps that the statue adorning this column in Birr (previously called Parsonstown) was that of the Liberator, Daniel O'Connell. However, the community has confirmed that it was a statue (now gone) of "Butcher" Cumberland, Prince William Augustus. From Pigot's 1824 Directory:  In the middle of the town is a stone column of the Doric order, with a shaft about 25 feet high, and surmounted with a pedestrian statue of the Duke of Cumberland in a Roman habit, cast in lead, and painted of a stone colour; it was erected in 1747 There's a fairly comprehensive report on the history, development and preservation of the column on the Offaly Council site. Thanks to everyone for today's contributions - especially O Mac, B-59 and Wendy: for quickly providing confirmation of location, subject and some local context...

Doyle, half-length portrait
Description: From old stones to a handsome young man with the intriguing title "Doyle, half-length portrait". We wondered who Doyle was and why should this portrait might be special? Based on logic that the "half-length portraits" immediately alongside this catalogue image are of Irish Volunteers, a convincing argument was championed by sharon.corbet that this is Patrick Doyle - one of the "Forgotten 10". This would seem to be corroborated by contemporary images attributed to be of Doyle. Excellent sleuthing as usual! (Note: As with other Keogh studio images and copies, we've mapped this to Dorset Street Lower - the location of Keoghs' studio) Photographer: Brendan Keogh Collection: Keogh Photographic Collection Date: 1914-1923 (taken before 1921 & possibly before 1916) NLI Ref: KE 33 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Emo Park, Portarlington, Co. Laois
Description: From the mystery of S. Silk and the roofs of Galway to the grandeur and no mystery of Emo Park in County Laois - or as it was when this old pile was built "Queens County". Today's investigations tell us that the image definitely dates after the 1860s development (which added the rotunda) and likely before the interior works undertaken by the Jesuits in the 1930s - which sits with the 1900-1920 catalogue range...

Elevated view of buildings in a town, one of the buildings has the sign
Description: An unusual Clonbrock shot today that I would have guessed was a Lawrence or even part of a Stereo Pair had I not seen the catalogue. There are a few more clues than S. Silk so this may be easier to crack... And so it proved, as this shot was seemingly taken in Galway, possibly from atop St Nicholas' Church, looking north across Bowling Green, towards the Salmon Weir bridge. In time we may even be able to refine the broad-range of the "1860-1930" catalogue dates, but there's strong evidence that this was taken no later than 1900....

Strand Races, Rosslare
Description: Today we leave the rugged rocks and rascals of Dunloe for the more serene and sophisticated Strand in Rosslare. This fine Lawrence shot of the facilities for the races in Rosslare has been taken from a very high point, and we wondered how he did it. As usual, the community came through, and there's a firm suggestion that this image (perhaps mirrored L-R from the original), was taken from atop Kelly's hotel at Rosslare. And perhaps dates a little later than the catalogue's 1880-1900 range....

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...

Academical Institute, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From an ancient plaque on a wall in Galway to a celebrated centre of learning in Belfast to start the week. This imposing if architecturally bland building houses the Belfast Academical Institute better known as "Inst". With thanks to today's contributors, we learned that the main building pictured (the Belfast Academical Institute) dates from c.1810, with the other building to the right (the Belfast Technical College) dating from c.1907. The latter helping date this French image. Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: dated c.1865-1914 (though possibly early 20th c.)

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. He was appointed Head of Statistics and Director of Statistics in 1930 and he held that position until 1947. He was responsible for managing the 1946 Census. 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.

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...)

Modern Gothic church in open country, square tower and spire, statue of warrior with harp in foreground
Description: This morning to start the Christmas season we open with a church described as "Modern Gothic". It looks a solid construction and of dark limestone, but we hadn't confirmed the location. With thanks especially to [https:[email protected]] that was quickly remedied, and it was confirmed as Saint Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Ballymoney, County Antrim - which as OMac points out is also captured in a Lawrence shot. The suggestion seems to be that this image dates to the late 1870s - perhaps close to the time of the church's official opening and dedication.... Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: ca.1860 - 1886 (though likely late-1870s/early-1880s) NLI Ref: STP_2264 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie
