Yesterday we had Cromwell's Bridges, and today we have Darling Street in Enniskillen. The bridges acquired the name Cromwell, but I know of no streets named after the "butcher! However this lovely image shows a street named after somebody called “Darling”! So we have a bridge, petrol pumps, cars parked a la carte, a cyclist pedalling up the hill, and another leaning on the crossbar and chatting with someone across the street! What I like most of all is the lad with the milk can heading up to get it filled!!
+++ UPDATE +++
Good work done on the date here. 1900-1939 nicely narrowed to 1926-1939 (thank you, Niall McAuley
) as a companion Eason Photographic Collection photo shows the full roof writing of Erne Engineering Company Motor Works, only partially visible on our bridge photo here. That company dates from 1926
. And as to the unusual street name itself, John Spooner
unearthed that it's named after an Edward Darling
who leased that land in 1777.
