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?

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865 - 1914

    It is remarkable how little has changed, except the trees are gone. From the September 2009 streetview - goo.gl/maps/58dZ6fL1RxnkPxiD8 - [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia/51861619464/in/dateposted/]

    Buildings are no help with dating, houses are from 1820, church spire 1856, church railings 1860, says the NIAH.

    There is an earlier image with lots of differences, notably a large Town Hall (?) on the right - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000338239 . What is the story here?

    Fashion wise, the lady in Long's doorway is nearer 1900 than 1865.

    John O'Callaghan, tailor, 40 in 1901. No Long next door.

    Catherine Long in 1911. No O'Callaghan next door. Between 1901 and 1911? Maybe not, I missed John Callaghan

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia It's taken from substantially further up the hill. There's still a hall there, though with a somewhat simplified façade and no bell tower. Edit: Actually, maybe it's just cleaner. And pebbledashed.

    I believe this is Katie Long and her uncle Edward in the 1901 census farming in Kinsale.

    L_ROY_08565 next door in the catalogue has a better view of the cross and suggests 1904 or later: This cross was cast out of Kilbrogan cemetery by the Rector xxx xxx and select vestry 27th April 1903 as being Romish, idolatrous and ritualistic. A subsequent application for readmission was refused and such refusal was upheld by the decision of the Cork Diocesan Court 27th November 1903 It is now erected here to vindicate the insult offered to the cross
