Morning Mary has a special affection for Thomas Wynne and his collection of photographs. The first of the Wynne images posted here was an albumen print as is this one. After emigrating to the US where his wife died leaving him with a child he returned to Ireland and founded a photographing dynasty with his many children scattering throughout the country and continuing the family profession. Main Street, Ballinrobe looks so quiet and remote in this image and the almost pink shading really gives the sense of age!
