Kautokeino in ruins
Description: Originalbeskrivelse:The small township of Kautokeino in the county of Finnmark is today in a derelict state. The characteristic church, all the official buildings and private homes were razed to the ground by the Germans when they retreated from the area. About 2000 of the population are today living in the mountains in earth huts and tents. Picture shows a wrecked German car left by the occupation troops.

Kautokeino i ruiner
Description: Original bildetekst: Det vakre Kautokeino i det indre Finnmark frambyr idag et sørgelig syn. Den karakteristiske kirken, den stolte prestegården og lensmannsgården og de velskjøttede småhus spredt langs elva er ikke mere. Brent og sprengt av tyskerne under retretten, jevnet med jorden alt sammen. Nær 2000 av kommunens befolkning lever i dag inne på fjellvidda i gammer og telt. Bildet viser restene av en gård i Kautokeino. Fotograf er usikker, men muligens Ole Friele Backer. Arkivreferanse: NTBs krigsarkiv i Riksarkivet (RA/PA-1209/U/Uj/L0219g)

Brent og sprengt av tyskerne under retretten, jevnet med jorden alt sammen. Nær 2000 av kommunens befolkning lever i dag inne på fjellvidda i gammer og telt. Men livet vender langsomt tilbake. Hittil er bygget to små hytter av tyske brakkelemmer blandt ruinene. Bildet viser den nyutnevnte ordfører i Kautokeino sin nybygde "residens". Grunnflaten er 4x4 meter og høyden 2 meter. Fotograf er ukjent, men muligens Ole Friele Backer. Arkivreferanse: NTBs krigsarkiv i Riksarkivet (RA/PA-1209/U/Uj/L0219a)

Soviet troops forcing a fjord on their way to Kirkenes, Norway
Description: Original bildetekst: A German shell throws up a geyser beside their boat as Soviet troops proceed through a Norwegian fjord on their way to attack the enemy in the port of Kirkenes. Soviet troops liberated the vital port, which lies at the northeastern tip of Norway, on October 25, 1944. Also a submarino and air base, its capture deprives the Germans of the springboard from which they attacked Allied convoys delivering U.S. Lend-Lease supplies to Murmansk in Russia, and draws still tighter the ring of encirclement about Germany. This is a radiophoto sent from Moscow to the U.S. Arkivreferanse: NTBs krigsarkiv i Riksarkivet (RA/PA-1209/U/Uj/L0219g)

Ridge Pool, Ballina, Co. Mayo
Description: King Street, Ballina, Co. Mayo Not King Street Ballina Co. Mayo, nor King Street, Ballina, New South Wales, this is a view overlooking the famous Ridge Pool and the old fish traps on the River Moy. The Ballina salmon weir has stood at the mouth of the River Moy, Ireland’s most prolific salmon river, for over 300 years. Originally built in the 16th Century, the weir has functioned since that time as a means of harvesting salmon that were channelled into one of its nine holding boxes as they made their way upstream to spawn. In these more enlightened times, all commercial exploitation of salmon on the River Moy has ceased and the ancient structure of the weir has now been modified to accommodate a series of electronic fish counters whose function is to provide valuable information on salmon stocks which will ultimately be used in the conservation of the species Photographer: Robert French Collection: The Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: [between ca. 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_CAB_01999 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Main Street, Donaghmore, Co. Tyrone
Description: Main Street, possibly Dungannon, Co. Tyrone. derangedlemur with customary speed identifies this photo as Donaghmore, not Dungannon as our Catalogue suggests. Did you know that as per the 1911 census there was a Donaghmore, in Tyrone, Down, Meath, Queens County (Laois) and Wicklow, is this a record? I am surprised that there was no comment on the shop sign "Emigration Agency" which is clearly visible in this photo. I have visited the Donaghmore Famine Workhouse Museum in Co. Laois, and it was well worth the visit. The Museum aims to tell the story of the families who lived and died within the Famine Workhouse walls before, during and after the Great Famine.

Dublin saves Cork
Description: Dublin and Cork fire brigade appliances. We were not sure if this photo was for our the Irish War of Independence or the Irish Civil War albums so we did not add it to either. We are no confident to change the date and add this to the Irish war of Independence album thanks to information supplied by Carol Maddock . She tells us that on Sunday 12th December 1920 a Dublin Fire Brigade contingent were conveyed by the special train to Cork to help with the fires during the Burning of Cork OwenMacC Tells us that the Dublin vehicle is a Leyland, "In 1909 the Chief Fire Officer of Dublin arrived at the Leyland works and told the astounded company that he had decided that they built the finest petrol truck chassis in the country, and that nothing but the best would be good enough for his proposed new fire engine. Though Leyland protested that they knew nothing of fire engine design, the astute fireman had come armed with his own ideal specification and Leyland agreed to build his engine" Photographer: W. D.

Long Cars, Gorey, Co. Wexford
Description: What a lovely photograph, it even has not one but two dogs!!. It seems that Long Cars are a type of early public transport (strike free perhaps?) Carol Maddock refers us to an advertisment in the Irish Times from 1894 which states that we are only 4 miles from sea by long cars constantly running.... There are 13 Car Drivers in the 1901 census for the area, I am presuming they drive this type of car? ONLY 2 Months and 6 Days to go............ I cant wait for the 8th July, what about you?

Best days of your life?
Description: Thanks for all your comments. The consensus seems to be that this boy is indeed Edmund (though we were led astray for a while by "Edward") Becher, at about age 11. This leads us to a grave record in France as follows: Rank: Lieutenant Date of Death: 19/07/1916 Age: 19 Regiment/Service: Royal Munster Fusiliers 8th Bn. Grave Reference: I. F. 7. Cemetery: MAZINGARBE COMMUNAL CEMETERY EXTENSION Additional Information: Son of Edmund W. and Ella Becher, of Ardagh, Lismore, Co. Waterford. This photo fits very well into our Album of Childhood, Best Days of your Life? and I have made the executive decision to rename the photo exactly the same as the album. I will leave it to you to answer the question for this boy. Photographer: A. H.

Lord French Ambush
Description: The car in which Lord French was ambushed: sergeant pointing out bullet hole. On 19 December 1919: The IRA attempted to assassinate the British Lord Lieutenant Lord French. The attack was carried out at Ashtown, in County Dublin. The IRA had been trying to assassinate Lord French for about three months. The IRA ambush party consisted of Mick McDonnell, Tom Kehoe, Martin Savage (Killed in the action) , Sean Tracey, Seamus Robinson, Sean Hogan, Paddy Daly (Leader), Vincent Byrne, Tom Kilkoyne, Joe Leonard, and Dan Breen. Two Dublin Metropolitan Policemen (D/Sgt Halley and Constable O'Loughlin), the driver of the second car (McEvoy) and one of the attackers (Dan Breen) were wounded.  The LK registration must have been an import from the UK. Photographer: W. D.

HMS Victoria on the River Tyne
Description: HMS Victoria, passing through the Swing Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, 1889 (TWAM ref. D.VA/24/3). She was launched at the Elswick Shipyard of Armstrong Whitworth on 9 April 1887. ‘Workshop of the World’ is a phrase often used to describe Britain’s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It’s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Party of ten
Description: Party of ten people standing and reclining on an island or peninsula, with hills in the background. This lovely picture was taken in front of the Lake Hotel as can be seen in OwenMacC link to the OSI map below. Owen also informs us that the four stone columns are there as markers of the road in times when the lake is high. In the map link it does say that the area is liable to flood. On the face of the earlier OSI map (6") the Hotel premises is labeled as Castlelough.

Description: Triangular green, railed, with square tapered column inscribed Corry on 6-step base, 2-storey public buildings 3-storey terraced streets, in background wooded hills in far background. It fascinates me that an old photo like this one can raise so many interesting stories. Such as, a duel in the Irish parliament involving Henry Grattan, water fountains in Newry, Dun Laoghaire and Australia and a Baron to the Throne of Poland in the reign of King Stanislaw August Poniatowski.

Never Argue
Description: Solicitors window, Sligo, Co. Sligo. No this is not an April fools prank, there really was a firm of Solicitors in Sligo named Argue & Phibbs. Please read the comments below for some other (in)appropriately named firms. The partnership started in 1919 and the main men were Mr William Argue and Mr William Talbot Phibbs. The firm continued to trade (surely Solicitors do not trade!) as "Argue & Phibbs" until the death of Mr Phibbs in 1944. From www.sligotown.net Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection: James P.

My hat is better than yours!
Description: Block of buildings in park-land with people, modern Gothic style church, linked to main wing of eight bays width, porch. I'm not sure how she did it but sharon.corbet identified this location within minutes as St Peter's College, Wexford. Well done Sharon. In one of Sharon's links there is a list of "Notable Alumni", including - John Banville, Des Bishop, Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich, Neil Horan (Notorious for Grand Prix and Olympic marathon protests) and Colm Tóibín. The Chapel is the earliest in the country designed by Pugin as per Niall McAuley. Niall also suggests a date range of 1860-1877 with a distinct lean towards the 1860's. I have changed the date range accordingly. From today's Irish Times Rising commemoration programme to be unveiled at Collins Barracks. ......The National Library is developing a major online resource (it) will include thousands of letters and artifacts from the seven signatories and others.

Donkey Power!
Description: Village street, donkey carts, people in foreground, modern small church in middleground. Thanks to derangedlemur we know that this is Castleconnell Co. Limerick. swordscookie aka Sean Mulligan tells us a few stories about his family who lived near here. "I was looking at this and never realised where it was until the Lemur (who else?) identified it! My antecedents came from there and indeed were connected (as servants) with the deBurgho's who are mentioned above! One of the girls in my grandmothers family ran off with a relative of that family and they eloped to Australia where their descendants are living today! We keep in touch and they have been over a couple of times! One of my fathers uncles helped found the rowing club in Castleconnell back in the 1880's and today my nephew and his daughters are involved as coach and crew! The granduncle was drowned when crossing from the quay in Limerick to a ship, a fact which was mentioned in a shot Carol put up of a steamer berthed in the city!

Description: Great excitement in Library Towers today, Mary O'Leary and myself visited our boss Katherine McSharry, we had a lovely time and celebrated the milestone of reaching 30 Million views on our Flickr Stream. Back to business, sharon.corbet believes that the shop has been newly (re)built - there's a photo from March 1912 (still called Grainger's shop and house) where there is construction going on. She also advised that the "-ines" sign visible on the building to the left above is part of "McCormicks Harvesting Machines". Photographer: A. H.

Glenarm, Co. Antrim.
Description: Raising the "Location Identified* flag in double quick time thanks to derangedlemur who identified this photo as being Glenarm, Co. Antrim. Specifically the river mouth of the Glenarm River. The Church is the Church of Saint Patrick in the parish of Tickmacrevan. The Church was built in 1768 and we see from A link to the DIA that "The church, which occupies the site of an ancient monastery, close to the shore near the town, was built in 1768, at the expense of the noble family of McDonnell, and was enlarged in 1822, by a loan of £500 from the late Board of First Fruits: it is a plain building with a tower and spire." The more examples of the Stereo Pairs Collection I see the more I like the collection!

Group of two : commissioned by Mr. Synnott. Solicitor. Enniscorthy
Description: I think DannyM8 might have finally cracked this one. He proposes John A. Sinnott as the older man and his nephew John Nicholas Scallan a recently qualified a solicitor as the younger man. Sharon thinks the photo may have been taken at the time Scallan joined his uncles firm. John N. Scallon gets married in 1909 and by that time the marriage notice mentions his late uncle - John A. Sinnott. I note that John A. Sinnotts father was Nicholas. sharon.corbet Sharon finds John Nicholas in the 1901 census as a Solicitors Apprentice. Therefore I am going to use the People Identified tag, which has been redundant for a while!! Niall McAuley and sharon.corbet Think the younger man might be Michael O'Dempsey and they point to a document that shows he was shot as a spy in 1922 - see here, it is worth a read Having made the error of posting this photo for a second time and then seeing the interest it generated we may do the same again - watch this space!!

Tullyganter Quarries & Chemical Works, Carnlough, Co. Antrim
Description: it's hard to believe but none of the industrial buildings that we see in this photo survive, There is not even a hint of their existence, Evidently the buildings were there to transform peat into ammonium sulphate but it seems to have been a process that was ultimately unprofitable. robinparkes Tells us that all the plant we see has been cleared away.

Celtic Cross, Aran Islands.
Description: One of our first photos from Inismore on the Aran Islands. As per Sharon the Cross was carved by the Farther of Pádraig Pearse. James Pearse, established a stonemasonry business in the 1850s a business which flourished and provided the Pearses with a comfortable middle-class upbringing. Pearse's father was a mason and monumental sculptor, and originally a Unitarian from Birmingham in England. swordscookie aka Sean Mulligan tells us about footwear called Pampooties which were used extensively on the island. Beachcomber provided the following, "They are formed of a single piece of untanned hide folded around the foot and stitched with twine or a leather strap. Hide from the buttocks was most often used. The hair was usually left and this improved the shoe's grip. The raw hide is kept flexible by use and the constant damp conditions of Western Ireland. However the shoes are not made to last. They are prone to rot and were usually kept for as little as a month or less. ...

Vartry Lake, Roundwood, Co. Wicklow
Description: I would think reservoir is more correct than lake as it is man made. It took a long time to get a streetview but OwenMacC seems to have gotten it nearly spot on, thanks Owen. Before this reservoir was built most drinking water in Dublin was taken from the Canals and it was not a very suitable supply, whereas the water from the Vartry was soft and sweet. Sir John Gray, him of the statue in O'Connell Street and at one time the owner of the Freeman's Journal, was instrumental in having the waterworks located in Roundwood. He died at Bath in England on 9 April 1875. Shortly after his death, his contributions to the provision of the water supply, and the beneficial impact this had to conditions of public health in Dublin, were recognised in a memorial statue on O'Connell Street.

Hotel, Clonbur, Co Galway
Description: A very interesting photo of a fishing party in Clonbur Co Galway, They can proceed north to Lough Mask or south to Lough Corrib, I wonder which lake and if their piscatorial pursuits were rewarded on the day in question? sharon.corbet Directs us to the census records for the Joyce household in 1901, wherein there is listed a 16 year old Coachman James Kavanagh, could he possibly be one of the drivers in our photo? Thanks also to Sharon for pointing out that we are actually in Co Galway rather than Mayo as stated in our catalogue. Derangedlemur and beachcomberaustralia both inform us that surprisingly the Google Streetview cars did not go down this particular street, I wonder why?

Street in Bushmills, Co. Antrim
Description: A lovely quiet street that has known many changes! I believe we achieved a new record today - for the first time we had three street views - thanks for the effort. By the way, OwenMacC thinks that derangedlemur's one is the best representation of the photo!! sharon.corbet Tells us that The War Memorial visible today was added in 1921, so it's before that, I have updated the date range to reflect this. No mention of Whiskey - I will have to remedy that myself with the following short piece from official website Bushmills.com 1918-20 A new chapter : Bushmills Whiskey made an impression on some of the most prolific authors of the time. It gets a mention in Ulysses and, not surprisingly, in On Booze. I know that "On Booze" is by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I am not sure about the author of other buke!!

Mansion, Blarney, Co. Cork!!
Description: This is intended to confuse the uninitiated! Everybody knows that Blarney is in Cork? Of course you all knew that Blarney is in Cork not Kerry as per our catalogue. This fine house unlike some we have seen recently survived the troubles of the 1920's. Niall McAuley Thinks that the photograph was taken from Blarney Castle, which we featured a few weeks ago.

Boat House, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: sharon.corbet tells us that the building was erected in 1897 so I have adjusted the dates to reflect that fact. There is a Titanic connection in that the building was opened in 1898 by Mrs W J Pirrie, wife of the managing director of Harland and Wolff; among the well-wishers was Mr Gustav Wolff, also representing Belfast craft of a larger size. Our resident Oarsman (retired?) swordscookie Tells us "I was rowing in the late 60's and early '70's and before the Troubles Belfast was a key regatta as were Banbridge, Portadown and the Portora Head of the River! We were in Belfast in 1970 and changed, got our boats ready here! I remember it well but even more the Lagan course which was like a series of S hooks!" The saddest note comes from robinparkes who posts his picture of the destroyed club house after a IRA bomb in 1972..

Bridge Street showing First Presbyterian Church, Portadown, Co. Armagh
Description: This lovely shot shows an idyllic scene of days gone by with watchers and non-watchers aplenty! It even has a dog to satisfy DannyM8. Surprising to see an Eason photo featuring another photographers premises (Moffett's) so prominently, perhaps Moffett sold some Eason products. I notice on the streetview that the chimney in the background is gone, we will have to start a search to find one that is still in existence. Does anyone read these updated summaries? If you do please leave a comment below saying "I read the summaries". Thanks Mary.

Ornamental garden, Kylemore, Co Galway
Description: Kylemore Gardens, Co Galway is the location of this photo. It is part of the Kylemore House / Abbey estate. The Gardens were built along with Kylemore House between 1867 and 1871. It Transpires that there were 21 heated glass houses including a 60 foot banana house, vineries, peachery, ferneries and exotic fruit and veg of all kinds. Tropical fruit such as bananas oranges and pineapples along with grapes peaches and other items were raised in the heated greenhouses, which I think is very impressive for a house in Connemara over 140 years ago.

Description: This is one of a stereo pair from the Lawrence Collection. The title is "Low angle railings Civil Building with clock tower and dome, statue with small plinth in front. Lisburn, Co. Antrim. Location Identified - derangedlemur Niall McAuley and sharon.corbet have shown this not to be Lisburn as noted in the title, but actually Derry/Londonderry, Shipquay Street to be precise, well done you three. A little information on the Collection. The Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection was acquired by the National Library with the Lawrence Collection, though it has always been considered a separate collection as the images cover an earlier period than the main Lawrence Collection, are a different format and were not created by the Lawrence firm. The stereographic negatives in the collection were the work of Dublin photographers James Simonton and Frederick Holland Mares and were acquired, probably purchased, by John Fortune Lawrence, a brother of William Mervyn Lawrence. They were printed and marketed by William Lawrence until the popularity of stereos waned in the 1880's.

Carlisle Fort, Crosshaven, Co. Cork with sailing boat. Taken from Camden Fort (in the foreground)
Description: This strange shot is from the Lawrence Collection and is said to be taken on Carlisle Fort in Crosshaven! The wide expanse of water is suitably occupied by the presence of a sailing boat going by! Everyone seems to agree that this photo was taken from Camden fort and that it is a picture of Carlisle Fort across the way, hence the title. guliolopez provides links to some maps he prepared earlier which illustrate all positions needed to understand this photo. oaktree_brian_1976 Tells us that the Boat is a two-masted schooner, and he believes they wouldn't have been used much past the 1910's or 1920's. therefore it is likely the photo was taken in the late 19th Century. Others have suggested 1880's or 1890's. Based on the evidence I am making an executive decision to change the date range to circa 1880 - 1900. John Spooner (a.k.a. The Prophet of Doom) sounds the Sudden Death Klaxon with reference to an article in the Freeman's Journal dated September 7, 1897 about the demise in an accident of a little boy Richard Hayes. abandoned railways Reports that Camden Fort has recently opened for visitors at the weekends, after renovation, and that the venture is being run by volunteers.

Tyne Bridge and Swing Bridge from Newcastle, 1963
Description: A view of the Tyne Bridge and the Swing Bridge from the Castle Keep, Newcastle upon Tyne, August 1963 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/31921L). Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of images taken by the Newcastle-based photographers Turners Ltd. The firm had an excellent reputation and was regularly commissioned by local businesses to take photographs of their products and their premises.

Ore Chimney Mine Penstock at Slave Lake
Description: This photo taken in 2014, shows the remains of the penstock leading to the powerhouse owned by the Ore Chimney Mine Company. This is located on the O'Donnell Road north of the village of Northbrook. The following information is from The Oxen and the Axe - a publication of the CDHS which is available from the Bookstore at www.cloynepioneermuseum.ca Author: Violet M. Hope The company owned and operated its own power plant at the falls at Slave Lake about 4 miles from the mine. The main dam across the Skootamatta River was approx. 400' long, 18' high and 18' at the base...The system included a canal or raceway, a surge tank, power house, transformer house and a dwelling house for the accommodation of the operator in charge. The penstock (285' long, 7' in diameter) carried the water from the artificial lake (Slave Lake) to the turbines in the power house. Bill Both was in charge and lived there with his family for 18 years and ran the power house with 3 eight hour shifts. The operation of this power house was essential for the very existence of the mine operation and the safety of the underground. The power house began operating in 1920, approximately. ----- The Ore Chimney Mine closed and was flooded due to a failure of this power plant which caused the mine pumps to stop with subsequent evacuation of the mine by the working personnel. It is told that when the pumps failed due to lack of electricity, the men had to climb the emergency ladders and many rushed to the generator site to try to get it up and running as quickly as possible. They failed to do so. Note: Commercial use of this image is prohibited without CDHS permission.

At Woodstock County Kilkenny
Description: A beautiful statue of a lady (without hat) in the house "Woodstock" in Co. Kilkenny! Thanks to Seuss. who tells us that the Sculpture is of Mary Blachford Tighe (1772-1810) as sculpted by Lorenzo Bartolini ca. 1820. Mary Tighe was an accomplished poet and her poem Psyche was admired by many and praised by Thomas Moore in his poem, "To Mrs. Henry Tighe on reading her Psyche" See Wikipedia Mary Tighe sharon.corbet Tells us that the the subject matter of the photo was destroyed in a disastrous fire on July 2nd 1922 see The Irish Aesthete ............ the family spent less time at Woodstock and once the War of Independence broke out the Tighes brought the house’s more valuable furniture and pictures to England. It proved a judicious move since the building was occupied first by members of the hated Black and Tans and then by the Free State Army. The latter left Woodstock on July 1st 1922 and the following day it was set alight, most probably by anti-Treaty forces. All the remaining contents, including the library and Bartolini’s statue of Mary Tighe, were destroyed in the blaze. It was, like so many similar occurrences of the period, an entirely gratuitous act of vandalism that did nothing other than rob Ireland of another part of her cultural heritage. Finally, the well traveled Sharon shares with us "I have just returned from Florence. The plaster orginial of Lorenzo’s statue of Mary Tighe is in the museo de l’academica there" Photographer: Robert French Collection: The Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: 1868 - 1914 NLI Ref: L-ROY-01913 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Northbrook Ontario Fire. 1941
Description: The Northbrook fire of 1941 In 1941 there was a massive fire in Northbrook which took out several homes on the east side of the highway [Hwy 41] roughly across from the Northbrook Hotel and the cemetery. The following is a description of the incident by John Bolton as transcribed by his wife Elaine in October 2014. ******************** It has on occasion been called “the great fire”. It started in a propane refrigerator in magistrate Jack Lloyd’s house on the east side of Highway 41. The house stood approximately where the current Cod Fathers restaurant is today. Houses and businesses on that side of the street were flattened in the inferno. It was stopped just south of Jim and Kate Vogan’s house [shown in the (2nd) picture]. There was this stiff westerly breeze that day to fan the flames [note the Pines near Vogan’s are leaning eastward]. Furniture saved from homes and businesses was piled across the highway (See 2nd picture) [note lubrication drama from the G.W. Wood garage]. As much as we can ascertain, the woman standing amid the furniture was a Doreen Wood [Hawes], daughter of Gordon and Mabel Wood. Photos are from Violet Thibeault and info was gained from conversation with Mary Lloyd Johnson and later, May Thompson.
