An interesting image from the Lawrence Collection for today with Coole House, Millstreet in Co. Cork and some of the family there. The lady on the right looks downright uncomfortable in her pose while the lady at the rear looks like a reluctant participant. The littlest person on board must provoke some interest as having a person of colour in North Cork back in the early 20th century must have been unusual, to say the least.
