A really fine image this morning from Monkey Morgan's lens. A large church with an equally large school building in the background. Long shadows might tell a story and his aircraft attracted enough attention for the two worshippers in the yard to stop and shielding their eyes look up as he passed overhead!

Photographer: Alexander Campbell “Monkey” Morgan

Collection: Morgan Aerial Photographic Collection

Date: ca. 1954 -1957

    No clocks for days ... and then two come along with differing times! 16:13 or 18:17 ?? Can anyone see Monkey Morgan's Flying Machine's shadow?

    Monkey went back for more five minutes later (@ 18:22) and there were two dogs in front of the church - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000738747/

    I think one of the dogs is in today's shot, right of the bike by the cathedral door.
