Men with horse-drawn float at St. Stephen's Green
Description: Our final "Clarke Week" entry, and probably our last Clarke image for a while, keeps us on the capital's south side where men are readying a float. The phrase "float your boat" takes on different meaning here, and there's definitely a nautical theme, but we wondered what might be happening. While we initially focused on the possible lettering between the masts and questioned if a signal flag expert might help, sharon.corbet pointed-out that we overlooked a note in the catalogue entry which gives context:  Boat decorated with garlands etc. as part of an annual fund-raising flag day held by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution [....] Perhaps the event is held at a particular time of year, or always in the same spot - to help with date or location? There is an interesting article on recent conservation treatments over on our blog www.nli.ie/blog/ please have a look if you have the time. The full title of the article is Acidic patches to zombie whites – recent conservation treatments. Photographer: Clarke, J. J. (John J.), 1879-1961 Collection: Clarke Photographic Collection Date: ca.1897-1904 NLI Ref: CLAR148 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Top hat and male
Description: Man with umbrella standing at the junction of Nassau Street, Grafton Street and Suffolk Street. The "Clarke Week" image for today (a little later than usual - apologies) is another candid streetlife shot from Dublin's south-side. The top-hatted gentleman looks to be standing on the corner (near Trinity's Provost House) looking towards Grafton Street. There appears to be an actual carriage or cart where Molly Malone's statued cart would later be sited... Niall McAuley identifies that Hamilton Long and J. M. Bernardo two businesses visible in the photo are amazingly still trading. As a bonus he tells us that one of the Bernardo sons Dr Tomas John founded the Bernardo Charity! Niall also helped us narrow the date range a little. As our regulars already know, we will claim a "people identified tag" at the drop of a fez. That said, the Duke of Edinburgh, Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, M.P. and Lady Augusta Bracknell, might be seen as stretching that point a little too far. stephen_corkery Links to one of his own "then and now" version of this photo, see the link below. The prize for the best comment of the day goes to O Mac "Yer man has some neck !" Photographer: Clarke, J. J.

Northern Bank, Mohill, Co. Leitrim
Description: Another building for today with a unique design for a bank. While we haven't been able to refine the date range significantly, there's a suggestion that the lady tending the window boxes (yes - there she is over the door on the flat roof) is a member of the household of William Charles Smith, who was manager of the branch in the early 20th century. We also learn that the building's Art Nouveau architecture was possibly designed by W.H. Byrne or Godfrey William Ferguson, and dates to c.1905 (plus or minus a few years)...

Belfast Castle, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From one great rock (that caught the Dunbrody) to another which anchors Belfast Castle. With thanks to all our contributors below, we've learned a little more about the 19th century design and construction of Belfast Castle - and had our interest piqued by the left-field reference which Sharon notes in the Dictionary of Irish Architects:  Name [architect]: LANYON, LYNN & LANYON  Building: CO. ANTRIM, BELFAST, BELFAST CASTLE  Date: 1868-70  Nature: New Scottish Baronial house on slope of Cave Hill by John Lanyon, for Marquess of Donegall. Faced with Cookstown stone with white Scottish stone dressings.  Name [architect]: SEAVER, HENRY  Building: CO. ANTRIM, BELFAST, BELFAST CASTLE  Date: 1922a  Nature: HS [Henry Seaver] said to have 'waved his Prospero's wand' over Belfast Castle.

S.S. Dunbrody stranded in Avon
Description: To matters maritime to begin the week, a stranded ship on a shore with supporting craft around it. With thanks to sharon.corbet, guliolopez, swordscookie, Derek, patrick.vickers1 and B-59, it seems that this image (probably a later copy by Poole) shows the 1896 grounding of the SS Dunbrody on the River Avon in England. The ship was refloated during Christmas 1896, and continued to service the Waterford Steamship Company's route from Bristol to Waterford into the early 20th century. If we can refine the location a little, we'd love to pin a location for this on the map.... Photographer: A.H. Poole Collection:Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: ca. 1901-1954 (likely a copy of an 1896 original) NLI Ref: POOLEWP 0781 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Castle Junction, Belfast
Description: Moving from downtown Nobber to a more sophisticated and meropolitan Belfast and the department stores and fine buildings on display at Castle Junction. Thanks to John Spooner & sharon.corbet for confirming the location, and beachcomberaustralia & sharon.corbet for pointing-out that we shared the the "reverse" view (looking against the photographer of this shot) a little while ago. beachcomberaustralia also provides links to some fascinating contemporary turn-of-century videos of the area - giving extra life to our shot here.

Seymour Street Methodist Church, Lisburn, Co. Antrim
Description: Today we have two for the price of one in the Stereo Pairs collection. An ornate church with an even more ornate fountain before! Identified as Lisburn's Seymour Street Methodist Church, we suspected the fountain was long gone - but to where? Thanks in particular to sharon.corbet and beachcomberaustralia for finding out more about the fountain - it was evidently one of many so-called "Wallace Fountains" (Wikipedia). Unfortunately the guys have confirmed that this example was likely dismantled for its metal during the Great War - it certainly seems absent from the 1920s photos which Sharon shares. Based on confirmation that the church and fountain both date to the mid-1870s, our intrepid duo also refined the catalogue date range to between 1875 and 1880.

Beside the seaside
Description: We've travelled further afield for our next image of "Clarke Week". Based on the poster in the shot it seems clear that we're close to Bundoran, County Donegal. The bucket and spade and sun-hats might suggest a link with previous beach scenes of Clarke's. But given how different it seems from a modern seaside outing, do we think that's what's pictured? First up today bhatto asked, what the South Asian lady pictured would be doing in Bundoran at the turn of the last century? An interesting question indeed. DannyM8 tells us that over 3,600 people in the 1901 census claim to have been born in India and he suggests that some of them must be Indian Nationals? Niall goes further and identifies a Hindu Woman named Ayah Kumaria, she is 40 years old, a Children's Nurse, she can read and write english and is married. Is it possible that this is the lady in the photo? eyelightfilms Tells us "Ayah isn't a name, but rather a job description. Indian word for a nanny or child minder. Here's my father, somewhere in India, in a pram with his "Ayah" back in 1927". (see the photo below) AndyBrii Identifies the poster as belonging to James Flynn, Leather Merchant, Bundoran, he also tells us that the poor man died on 5th Aug 1909. Photographer: Clarke, J. J.

Group of boys in uniform marching at the corner of Portobello and Richmond Street South
Description: Continuing with "Clarke Week" (not to be confused with Discovery channel's "Shark Week"), today's candid shot prompts questions about where these youngsters were off to. A number of theories were offered on who the boys might be, and perhaps the most likely is [https:[email protected]]'s suggestion that they are associated with the Hibernian Marine School which was located for a time in nearby Rathmines. While we'd absolutely love to corroborate this (perhaps with another image of the school's pupils of uniforms), in the meantime we note that the building pictured was originally a hotel, as per the following from our friends at Archiseek:  The hotel was one of five operated between Dublin and the Shannon and opened in 1807 and operated until 1860 despite passenger services being stopped in 1852. Sited beside the former Portobello basin (now filled in), this is a simple classical building with nice proportions. The hotel was later converted into a nursing home where the artist Jack B. Yeats spent his last years. Photographer: Clarke, J. J.

Two women walking past jewellers, Grafton Street
Description: This week we're doing something a little different - and posting an image a day from a single collection: the Clarke Photographic Collection. Those who have followed the stream for a while will be familiar with John J Clarke (1879-1961), who took many of his photographs from 1897 to 1904 while a medical student in Dublin. Unlike the studio shots of Poole or the professional commissions of French, his shots tend to be snapshots. And while therefore perhaps not as technically composed, they candidly capture the street-life of Dublin (and sometimes Donegal) from the turn of the century. This one for example is a lovely study of fashions in clothes and shop displays.... One of our International friends (Canadian) La Belle Province is I think a traditional lurker, obviously she looks in every day but, only comments when we have a photo with nice hats or fashion from bygone days. Over the years she has become our go to fashion expert. It is always good to see you here!! Although Edmund Johnson Limited is long gone, they will be remembered because of their association with three Icons of Ireland past present and future, The Sam Maguire, The Ardagh Chalice and The Liam McCarthy Cup. Thanks to [https:[email protected]] for the connections. Photographer: Clarke, J. J.

The Colony, Achill
Description: Sounding a little ominous (perhaps somewhere Patrick McGoohan might have spent some time), today we visit "The Colony" on Achilll island. Depending on when French captured this image, it's likely that Nangle's mission was all but closed by this time.... Sharon.corbet links us to a history of "The Colony" which gives us the following:  The land on which the Achill colony was built was leased from the island’s landlord, Sir Richard O’Donnell, and was located near the village of Dugort, under the shadow of Achill’s highest mountain, Slieve Mór. Edward Nangle moved permanently to the completed colony in 1834, along with his wife Eliza, his family, and his most loyal supporters. The missionary settlement consisted of male and female schools, the minister’s house, a church, a hotel, and a printing press. We can also see two Dogs at the main gate which will keep some of our regulars happy! This photo was selected by Flickr Explore - check out our explore album if you have a few spare moments.

Church, Arranmore, Aran Islands, Co. Galway
Description: From yesterday's luxurious properties to the spartan settings of the Aran Islands at the turn of the last century. With thanks to derangedlemur, O Mac, DannyM8, and in particular Mike (Inverarra), we have additional detail on the location and destiny of this little church. "Eaglais San Thomáis" (the church of Saint Thomas) served the Anglican/COI community in Kilthomas from the 1840s to the 20th century. As per the images and "potted history" which Mike shares, the church is now a ruin, and the roof was removed in the mid-20th century. While likely mirroring an overall decline in the island's population (from ~2500 when the church opened in the 1840s, to ~800 in the 2011 census), it's worth noting that there are three churches still serving the island's community: Kilronan RC (dating from 1905), Eochaill chapel (1833) and Eoghanacht church (1958). Thanks again all!

Description: TWAM Ref: TWCMS:M4445 A. Reyrolle & Co. Ltd was founded by Alphonse Reyrolle (1864 - 1919), a French engineer who established a small switchgear shop in London in 1886. In 1901 his business moved to Hebburn and the firm began to grow with the recruitment of Henry Clothier. Clothier helped them develop large switchgears for power stations, a product the company became famous for. Over the years, Reyrolle continued to grow, seeing a number of mergers. Most notably with C.A Parsons in 1968 and Rolls Royce in 1989. The Hebburn site is now owned by Siemens who acquired the company in 2005. This photograph shows construction at A.Reyrolle & Co.

18 April 1919
Description: TWAM Ref: TWCMS:M4409 A. Reyrolle & Co. Ltd was founded by Alphonse Reyrolle (1864 - 1919), a French engineer who established a small switchgear shop in London in 1886. In 1901 his business moved to Hebburn and the firm began to grow with the recruitment of Henry Clothier. Clothier helped them develop large switchgears for power stations, a product the company became famous for. Over the years, Reyrolle continued to grow, seeing a number of mergers. Most notably with C.A Parsons in 1968 and Rolls Royce in 1989. The Hebburn site is now owned by Siemens who acquired the company in 2005. This photograph shows construction at A.Reyrolle & Co.

Description: Though labelled as "Reelan Bridge, Lifford, Co. Donegal" in the catalogue, after some initial location theories that were closer to Lifford, it was confirmed that we are a little further afield. Within a short space of time, both O Mac and Niall McAuley suggested a bridge over the Shallogan River ("An Sealgán"). Though still in Donegal, this puts us 60kms from Lifford and makes the hill in the background an Shalloganbeg ("Cnoc an tSealgáin Bhig"). The modern-day streetview topography seemed pretty convincing, and the guys suggested that the photographer was standing close to where the 1890s Stranorlar and Glenties rail line was just built, was being built, or was to be built. Not satisfied with this, O Mac actually went to Straboy. In doing so he not only confirmed the location, took a few "today" shots, and established a likely date range - but even settled the "what is the 'house' pictured" debate. As per his note below, local knowledge suggests it was probably a hen coop. Kudos and thanks from us in Library Towers!

View of some of the Stalls at the Show, Ballsbridge, Co. Dublin
Description: From one venerable Irish institution, Rebellion, to another, the Royal Dublin Society. This image is of the main hall at the RDS during either the Spring or Horse Show in the early 20th century. The comments below offer interesting insights into the exhibitors and, importantly for us, a more refined date range for the photo. Thanks to all - and in particular Carol Maddock whose investigations into the stand-holders and numbers would seem to establish a date or dates. We've updated the range for the entry (on Flickr at least for now), and mapped the image to the RDS Ballsbridge exhibition centre main hall.

Bell Bridge (Bealaclugga Bridge) County Clare
Description: Robert French took a few shots of this striking early 19th century bridge near Spanish Point in Clare (Miltown Malbay per the catalogue entry). Given that this was likely a famine relief project, the effort that went into the ornamentation is interesting. While the loopholes are fanciful, do we think the apparent coats-of-arms have meaning? beachcomberaustralia and guliolopez tell us that this bridge was built as part of famine relief works, I think most of us would immediately presume 1840's but no, this bridge was built in 1822. There was famine in certain western areas and as can be seen from the following quote thousands of people were involved in schemes like this. "A striking feature of the public works initiative in Ireland was the sheer physical demand placed on the framework by the vast numbers seeking relief. In July 1822, Griffiths reported there being ‘upwards of 10,000 persons at present employed in the County Limerick exclusive of farming laborers, mainly on road building" Photographer: French, Robert (1841-1917) Contributors: Lawrence, William (1840-1932) Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: ca. 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_11323 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Octagon, Westport, County Mayo
Description: For many towns a four-sided square is sufficient. Not so for the "planned town" of Westport - where norms are doubled to form "the Octagon". The octagonal monument in the centre was originally erected in the mid-19th century in memory of a wealthy local - a decade or so ahead of the first date in our catalogue's "1865-1914" range. But we wondered whether we could refine the date range for this Lawrence/French shot. That the statue still had a head and appeared unaffected by damage that beachcomberaustralia noted confirmed that the image likely didn't exceed the late 1910s. However, our eagle-eyed sleuths were able to refine further. sharon.corbet was quick to point out that the distant spire put the earliest date in the 1870s. O Mac PRO suggested that the electric lights might imply an early 20th-century date - and this seems to have been confirmed by a "1902" date in the graffiti spotted by beachcomberaustralia (and corroborated by Niall McAuley and derangedlemur). Ultimately through the community's efforts we have learned that the monument did succumb to various attempts, and the original statue of George Glendenning (1770-1843) was replaced by one of St Patrick in the late 20th century...

Doolough
Description: FIshing weather. This is part of one of the nicest drives in Ireland. This is Doolough or Doo Lough one of three lakes that make up the Delphi Fishery, it was called Delphi by the Marquis of Sligo who used to own the fishery. Doolough is famously known for the "The Doolough Tragedy" see O Mac PRO link below. On Friday 30 March 1849 two officials of the Westport Poor Law Union arrived in Louisburgh to inspect those people in receipt of outdoor relief to verify that they should continue to receive it. For some reason the inspection did not take place and the officials went on to Delphi Lodge – a hunting lodge – 12 miles (19 km) south of Louisburgh. The people who had gathered for the inspection were thus instructed to appear at Delphi Lodge at 7am the following morning if they wished to continue receiving relief. For much of the night and day that followed therefore seemingly hundreds of destitute and starving people had to undertake what for them, given their existing state of debilitation, was an extremely fatiguing journey, in very bad weather. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doolough_Tragedy I hate the flickr MAPPING TOOL Photographer: Robert French Collection: The Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Circa 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_00897 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Swiss Cottage, Cahir, Co. Tipperary
Description: What a lovely photograph to start the week. A delightful "cottage orné" built in the early 1800s by Richard Butler, 1st Earl of Glengall to a design by the famous Regency architect John Nash. Its interior contains a graceful spiral staircase and some elegantly decorated rooms. The wallpaper in the Salon manufactured by the Dufour factory is one of the first commercially produced Parisian wallpapers. Situated on an elevated site with access by stone steps. The above is from the link to Heritage Ireland posted by sharon.corbet . O Mac PRO supplied all the required mapping information. His Streetview link is worth a look.. Everything was proceeding quietly until we heard the dreaded "Accidental Death Klaxon" Thank you Carol Maddock. This was accompanied by a chilling story of the death of Mr Peter Doherty in tragic circumstances. Mr Doherty was the caretaker of the Swiss cottage at that time. Our great Australian contributor beachcomberaustralia Links us to a story from an Aussie visitor to the area in 1910, see below.

The Quays, Wicklow, Co. Wicklow
Description: To finish this week we turn to matters maritime! The quays in Wicklow as we could only imagine them. That wee ship is a nice neat vessel and obviously well cared for OR brand spanking new? Niall McAuley Was working overtime today, he supplied all the required mapping information and manages to convincingly narrow the date range to between 1905 and 1912. patrick.vickers1 knows the river here very well and tells us "The berth shown is where the an old Brixham schooner used to be. Perhaps better known as the Susan Vittery, ex Brooklands. A record holder on the fruit run from the Azores, sunk in a gale in 1953 near the Tuskar. When the tide was going down my grandfather and others use to rake for mussels on the lower arches of the river. The scene shown does not look much different than seventy years ago !

Belvelly Castle, Fota, Co. Cork
Description: For our Cork supporters today we have an old and very clear shot of the castle at the bridge from Fota. This shot generated a number of good stories today - leaving us with a tough job to select the most interesting ones. With thanks to all of today's contributors, without your help and support we would be at nothing: sharon.corbet, Niall McAuley, beachcomberaustralia, Carol Maddock + guliolopez. Ultimately perhaps Carol's "Blarney Castle" story wins by a whisker :) Even though Carol's find refers to events during WWI, Beachcomber references a similar story from 1904 - you would have to be up early in the morning to best the jarvies! Found this headed A Counterfeit Castle in Quidnunc’s An Irishman’s Diary... During the war [WWI] Queenstown, with its magnificent harbour, was the naval base for the American Fleet “operating in European waters”. Consequently, the town was constantly crowded with sailors on “shore leave”. Cork City was out of bounds, and the people of Queenstown were hard put to it to provide entertainment for these warriors of the sea. Now Blarney Castle proper stands about 21 miles from Queenstown, too long a journey for a horse to do in an afternoon, so the enterprising jarveys of the district evolved a scheme which brought much diversion to the Yankees and a golden harvest to themselves. Fortunately for that scheme, the American sailor is not of so inquiring a mind as his countrymen of the tourist class. About two miles from Queenstown there stands an old ruin, Belvelly Castle. Structurally, it is somewhat similar to Blarney Castle, sufficiently so, at any rate, to deceive the sailor from overseas. And here he was brought in dozens to see the Castle and kiss the Stone! I once inquired from a jarvey which stone they represented to be the famous one. “Yerra, anyone at all, sir, as long as ’twas a bit hard to git at”, he replied. “Most of them stones round the top have had their share. Shure, there’s bits of chewing-gum stuck all over them”. Thus was this complete, but harmless, deception successfully carried out.

Garinish Island Tower, Glengarriff, Co. Cork
Description: Lawrence takes us on a visit to a Garinish Island that is more muckheap than garden. Is this now part of the fabulous gardens??? I am with sharon.corbet with regards to the inadequacies of some of the mapping systems, the flicker system has no entry whatsoever for Garnish Island. The best comment in my opinion was posted by John Spooner wherein he relates an extract from: "Our Autumn Trip through Munster part VI" which was published in The Huddersfield Chronicle and West Yorkshire Advertiser on Saturday, November 21, 1863 I have spoken of the little island with the Martello tower, lying about a mile down the Bay, from Glengariff, it is called Garnish Island. You may have a boat at the inn-door, and sail down to the place, and be back in less than an hour, and it is well worthy of a visit. A little two-oared boat swiftly bore us thither, and the boatman told us how that the tower there was built " for fear of the French;" for the year after "the invasion," fortifications were erected along the Bay, and on most of the islands. We landed at a rude jetty, rather hurriedly as the boatmen seemed to think, for one of them exclaimed: "Aisy, aisy, Sir! betther be sure than sorry," - a good maxim, worthy of being noted, like those of captain Cuttle. The "invasion" referred to (as the article explains) was the attempt in 1796 to land a Fench army of 15000 men (with arms for 50000 more) in Bantry Bay.
