    If I recall correctly, the WR&S pics were all taken in 1900-05 and acquired as a batch by Eason.

    The Coleraine Chronicle of Saturday 13 February 1909 reported on a "most enjoyable" subscription dance the previous Thursday at the Alexander Memorial Hall, Limavady. The final sentence says that "the catering, which was all that could be desired, was entrusted to Miss Irwin (Temperance Hotel)." Could that be Miss Irwin, I wonder, in her work clothes at the doorway of the Temperance Hotel?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia She was a dab hand at baking, winning 1st prize in the 'decorated cakes' category at the two-day bazaar at the Alexander Memorial Hall in November 1909, beating off competition from Mrs Kyle in 2nd place, and Miss Drennan (Broighter) and Mrs Shannon (Bessbrook), 3rd equal. There were lots of Irwins in Limavady, but she's 'Miss Irwin (Hotel)' in the results so it's probably safe to assume it's the same one.

    The sheep danglers, Moffat and Donaghy, are no help, in the 1901, 07 and 1910 directories.

    The sunny pic does not have the Temperance Hotel sign, does have a man in a boater. Squinting, I think the reverseish shot does not have the Temperance Hotel sign either.

    On this very spot

    A Violent Tramp On Saturday evening Patrick Loughran, a tramp, made things lively in Limavady. To those who would not accede to his demands, and even those that did he thought they had not been generous enough, he heaped abuse upon them and threatened them. Visiting the drapery establishment of Messrs. Moffat & Donaghy, in Main Street, he accosted Mr. Donaghy in a violent and threatening manner, raised his stick over Mr. Donaghy's head and threatened him. The police were communicated with, and Loughran was arrested and brought before Mr. Samuel Cassidy, who sentenced the accused to one month's imprisonment with hard labour.
    (Northern Constitution - Saturday 17 November 1906)
