Silence is requested!
Description: Thought this would be a good image to end on (please excuse me while I tuck away my dangling preposition). This is my last day here at the NLI, and I want to thank all of you for the research, investigation, argument, theorising, geo-locating... You have immensely improved what we knew or thought we knew about photographs in our care, and hence improved our national photographic collection. On a personal note, I want to thank all of you Flickroonies for surprising and amazing and making me laugh every day over the last couple of years. I wish you all the very best!

John Monash 3 years old [1868] / Davies & Co., Photographers, Melbourne
Description: Already standing tall with the help of a chair, who could have foretold that this little chap would grow up to become a great general, General Sir John Monash, whose bold new methods helped turn the tide against Germany? After commanding ten divisions of Australian, Canadian, American and British troops and saving so many Allied soldiers from the stalemate and slaughter, George V knighted him in the field at Amiens, which no monarch had done since George II. In 2015 the State Library will be showcasing its huge collection of World War 1 Australiana, for the Centenary commemoration of the Great War For more information on this great Australian, see: www.monash.edu.au/about/who/history/sir-john-monash.html adb.anu.edu.au/biography/monash-sir-john-7618 Format: Photograph Find more detailed information about this photograph: www.acmssearch.sl.nsw.gov.au/search/itemDetailPaged.cgi?i...

J.J. Clarke?
Description: That would be John Joseph Clarke on the left, or so lore has it here at Library Towers. We've seen a few of the photographs taken by this medical student before. Any way of establishing once and for all if this is he? Unfortunately, I think identifying the jaunty chap(?) on the right is beyond even all of your advanced Flickroonie abilities!

Chakram and Chintz
Description: Not being entirely accurate here, as I don't think a Chakram (Indian throwing weapon) is actually among the array of lethal weapons here, but when I saw the Chintzy soft furnishings, it seemed like a snappy title! This is the Hall at Florence Court in Enniskillen. In comparison with the Hall at Powerscourt House where we visited recently, there're far fewer mounted heads but here we have a hair-raising array of weaponry that we just haven't come across before. It would be excellent to get accurate names for some of them... Photographer: Almost certainly Robert French of Lawrence Photographic Studios, Dublin Date: 1890s?? NLI Ref.: L_CAB_01910

Description: Back to our Ghosts of Xmas Past extravaganza - and today we're being haunted by the cover of the script of this pantomime that was performed by the Bernadette Players at Christmas 1941 in the Bernadette Hall, Rathmines, Dublin. Apparently Snowhite and the Seven Corkmen was based on the old tale of the Craos Deamhan or Hunger Demon.
