A colleague here at Library Towers thinks there's "something strange in the neighbourhood" with this Stereo Pair. It's allegedly Chapel Street in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, but there doesn't seem to be any Chapel Street in Maynooth. Do any of you know differently?

Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton

Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence

Collection: The Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection

Date: c.1860-1883

NLI Ref: STP_3042

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] I think [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] is right, and that it is flipped and looking up towards the Moyglare Rd. Neither the 25" nor the 6" shows a row of houses beyond the church on Mill St.

    There is another delightful photo of Chapel Street - kiddies in front of a lodge building(?) - which might provide more clues about the "Maynooth Mystery" - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000566362 Edit - This lodge house took some finding as it is not nearby - streetview goo.gl/maps/VS3baNCNgdJXxC5r9 And Flickr is sometimes amazing!

    Halfway along the terrace at left (after flipping) that big sticky out stone is marked on the 25" as a Mile Stone - Dublin 12, Kilcock 3, Leixlip 5 It's 22.5 Km to O'Connell Bridge as the crow flies when he's sober, 14 miles.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia According to the 25", it's a school, rather than a lodge.

    There is a long run of STPs in Maynooth and nearby Carton Estate up to STP_3054, and none of them show anything dateable as far as I can tell.
