Mr. French's images from Newtownbarry/Bunclody are some of the most atmospheric in the entire Lawrence Collection and this is no exception. The Carrigduff Road showing the entrance to some big building, a row of houses and a number of people, no dogs has that same warm, summery feeling similar to those that went before. The plants growing on the window boxes are strangely reminiscent of the briars in the windows of those homes resisting eviction in earlier times!
