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.

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.

(As an aside, while many of the regular NLI Commons stream followers may already be aware of the 1916 Rising and WWI events programs, anyone in Dublin in the coming months may be interested to visit the NLI's exhibition at the National Photographic archive - as mentioned in print and on RTÉ last night) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: between ca. 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_04272 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Not Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but Newcastle County Down
Description: Happy "Maritime Monday" to everybody. This morning we have a lovely image of the harbour in Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland - when it was natural and virtually undeveloped. The village surrounding it ensures that it is not going to be mistaken for its namesake Newcastle upon Tyne! Thanks to today's eagle-eyed contributors for spotting the name on the largest vessel ("Thomas" of "Belfast"), as well as the apparent workmen and rail-track to the left of the central terraced houses.

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....

George's Hill Presentation Convent, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: This oasis of peace and learning lies in the heart of old Viking Dublin. Surrounded by hospitals and artisan dwellings it provided education for generations of girls. While the subject was relatively clear, with thanks to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] in particularly we've been able to accurately reflect the location on the map - and possibly refine the 5 decade range to perhaps a decade or so...

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.

Keeping up with the Jones's?
Description: The domestic dwelling to the right of this shot must have felt that nothing they could do would enable them to keep up with the Jones's! 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!

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://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] others) suggest that the image dates from the earliest decade or so of the 1901-1954 catalogue range...

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

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. 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, 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...

We questioned whether the rock was still there - as the court house undoubtedly is... ...and thanks to Niall McAuley, sharon.corbet, swordscookie and beachcomberaustralia, we have confirmation of the location, history and the man behind the name: "Honest" Tom Steele (1788-1848) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Betweeen 1865 - 1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_04482 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Baltinava Jewish Culture Society
Description: Though the village of Baltinava’s Jewish community never numbered higher than a few hundred the village was still home to Jewish mutual aid and cultural societies – as this book stamp demonstrates. In the years preceding the Second World War the Jews of Baltinava made up well over a third of the communities total population. The Nazis took Baltinava in July of 1941, and after initially executing a portion of the Jewish community, many of Baltinava’s remaining Jews were made to engage in forced labor. On August 11, 1941 the Nazis took the remaining Jews from Baltinava to the Baltnice forest where they were murdered. 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.

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....

Head, the Bathing Place, Bray, Co. Wicklow
Description: This wonderful Lawrence shot is at Bray Head - but what is going on here and when did it all take place? While it was quickly established that the catalogue is correct, and this is Naylor's Cove, with the town of Bray visible in the background, we did not immediately confirm a date and info on the event pictured. Following early suggestions however from patrick.vickers1 and sharon.corbet, Niall Mccauley offered strong evidence that the image is from one of Bray's August regattas between 1907 and 1914! Thanks also to O Mac for information on the railway line in the foreground, and to KestrelSprite, Niall and eyelightfilms for the discussion on the Drumm Battery Train which ran on the line. (Not related, but as a reminder, a repeat from the "Tríd an Lionsa" series will show tonight 10 Nov 2015 at 9pm on TG4. Also available on their catch-up player, the latest episode involves collections and colleagues from Library Towers...)

Park Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth
Description: For today we have another street - surely the cataloguer can't have this one wrong as well? It is a fine street, in a busy town, with lots of commerce to provide plenty of research for those who would follow... ...and sure enough the team confirm that the label is correct. The discussion below focused mainly on the business serving a "pass trade" on the left side of the Park Street. And through that discussion it seems likely this is a mid-1920s view of its businesses, customers and signage.

Description: We start November with a stay in the Devonshire Arms Hotel in Lismore, one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland. Rich with castles, trees and the beautiful Blackwater River - what better place to spend an Autumn day? With thanks to all for the contributions below, we learned that the hotel (now the Lismore House Hotel) dates from the 1790s, and the monumental fountain (the Ambrose Power Memorial) to the 1870s. When the picture itself was taken, and what the young chaps are up to is still the subject of some debate...

While location and subject of this French shot were already clear, we lacked a more refined date range.

People strolling and sunning themselves in a park (Phoenix Park)
Description: Labelled as "People strolling and sunning themselves in a park : location unknown", today's image took us from war to peace. Having seen the result of military reprisals yesterday, todays sylvan scene is a welcome change and shows gentlemen and ladies taking their ease. Thanks in part to the wonders of Streetview, but mostly to the work of sharon.corbet and derangedlemur, it has been established that this "unknown location" is the People's Garden in Dublin's Phoenix Park. Though still popular with those seeking a break from the city, and while the plinth remains, the statue we see pictured in the background (which assisted in confirming the location) was destroyed in the 1950s. So perhaps not such a quiet respite from conflict we hoped for after all.... Photographer: Fergus O’Connor Collection: Fergus O’Connor Collection Date: 1900 - 1921 NLI Ref: OCO 199 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

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.

Fundamental Library of the Volhynia Theological Seminary
Description: The Volhynia Theological Seminary was founded in 1796. It is a Ukrainian Orthodox Church institution. It was moved several times in the 1800s, and by the mid 1800s, when it was located in the small Ukrainian town of Kremenets, it was one of the largest institutions of its kind in the Ukraine area. In 1939, after Kremenets was annexed by the Soviet Union as a result of the Nazi-Soviet pact, the seminary was closed. After the war in 1945, the seminary reopened in Lutsk, Ukraine. In 1964 it ceased operations once more as a result of Khruschev’s anti-Church policies. In 1990 the Lutsk theological school was opened, and after receiving the status of a theological seminary a year later, would become the modern-day Volhynia Theological Seminary. 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.

Chatzi Kaddish Intellectual Books
Description: Karlsruhe is the capital city of the grand duchy of Baden in Germany, a city with a lengthy Jewish history dating back to the early 1700s when Jews were attracted to the city by pledges of non-discrimination by the city’s leaders – though it was not until 1862 that the city’s Jews were granted full emancipation. The city was home to a highly respected publishing industry which printed numerous important Hebrew books throughout the 1700s and 1800s – and was also the site of the central council of Baden Jewry. Given the city’s reputation as a place of religious knowledge it is no surprise that a book shop such as the one identified by its bookstamp as “Chatzi Kaddish Intellectual Books” should be found in Karlsruhe. Instances of anti-Semitic rioting took place in Karlsruhe at several points throughout the 1800s, but the Jewish community remained resilient. Yet the storied history of the Jews of Karlsruhe came to a destructive point in the fall of 1938 – Polish Jews were deported in October and on Kristallnacht the synagogues in Karlsruhe were destroyed. Waves of deportations forced the Jews of Karlsuhe to leave the city fleeing for their lives or sent them to concentration camps. The Jewish population of Karlsruhe had never been particularly large (there were fewer than 3,500 Jews in Karlsruhe in 1933), but more than 1,000 members of the community were murdered in the years of Nazi rule. A new synagogue was constructed in Karlsruhe in 1969. 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.

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.

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.

Library of the factory committee of the factory Red Vyborger
Description: The “Red Vyborger” is one of the largest facilities for the processing of non-ferrous metals and alloys (those that do not contain a significant amount of iron) in Russia today. It was founded in 1857 by a mechanic from the Baltic region by the named of Fedor Gosh. In 1863, the facility was bought by guild merchant K.F. Rosenkrantz, under whom it prospered greatly and gained notoriety abroad as well as within the Russian Empire. In 1872, the factory passed to the brother of K.F. Rosenkrantz, Karl Eduard. Demand grew sharply during the Russo-Turkish war of 1878-88 and the factory bought a large steam engine and produced metal objects of necessity for the war. The factory expanded, bought new machinery, and merged with other similar enterprises in the years leading up to the Russian Revolution. The factory would stop production between December 1917 and the end of 1921. It underwent nationalization in 1918 and obtained its current name in 1922. During the war, most of the factory and its workers were transferred to the Ural region further east, but what remained of the factory continued to churn out things useful for the war, such as mortar barrels and electrical cable (the cable it produced was laid underwater in Lake Ladoga to provide electricity to besieged Leningrad from the Volkhov Hydroelectric plant). This went on during one of the most brutal sieges in history, the Siege of Leningrad, which lasted 872 days and caused the death of approximately 1 million civilians. 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.
