    [Ooo - your clocks have sprung forward!] " ... In the second half of the 19th century, Moville was a point of embarkation for travellers, especially emigrants, to Canada and the United States of America. In the late 19th century, steamships of the Glasgow-based Anchor Line and Allan Line made port at Moville while en route to and from New York, while just after the turn of the 20th century, the Canadian Pacific Line also established a terminal at the port as part of their service connecting Liverpool and Montreal for Canadian-bound Irish immigrants. ... " From - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moville Style of steamer with cross-spars on the foremast looks 1890-ish.

    via - www.norwayheritage.com/p_ship.asp?sh=paris which has more photos and AMAZING details of SS 'Parisian' voyages from 1880 - 1914. So, if this is the 'Parisian', the photo is before 1899 (funnel loss).

    The Montgomery Terrace was built in 1884 according to - www.duchas.ie/en/cbes/4493791/4420804 Which implies this photo is before then, possibly before the 1882 lighthouse, when the 1880 ship was very new. Or not?

    The NIAH puts the end of terrace house we see here at 1880, and the next one 1884, with the hall at the other end 1887. The catalogue is clearly not date sorted, since the very next shot L_CAB_06396 shows the hall.

    Or after 1887 ?- The two houses seen in the photo were the 1884 Montgomery Terrace. The Temperance Hall was 1887, and the eight houses in between were being built some time after 1887, possibly contemporary with today's photo. See catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000334109 compared with later catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000334107 Confused? I am. ed. Snap @ [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley/]
