A fine Royal Plate capturing the top end of North Main Street, Bandon in Co. Cork on a quiet day. The ladies are not interested in posing for Mr. French and have moved in to Long's and O'Callaghan's to thwart his efforts to make them famous. Down the street from them is a dog, or it may be a cat though it looks more like a "wannabee wallaby" - what do you think Danny and Foxglove?
