A very interesting image from the wonderful Poole Collection for todays posting. Mrs. O'Mahony commissioned Arthur Henri to photograph the "Bijou" shop and he captured a lot more than just the shop front. The boy in the window above, the beautiful hats on their stands in the window, the wonderful lace curtains to provide suitable privacy for the ladies who would wish to try them on and the reflections in the glass that may show us the man himself? In Waterford I suspect but where and what is there now?
