The street is so clear all the locals must have been away at the All-Ireland? Campsie seems a strange name for a street but it appears that, then at least, this street in Omagh was known as Campsie. Interestingly the street is empty apart from pedestrians, a barrel and a couple of handcarts.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia Looking back at the older/other "William Ritchie & Sons" examples, I think they were in business from 1903 to the mid/late 1920s. Most of the other examples seemed to date from the mid 1900s to the early 1910s. The fashions would suggest we are in a similar range here I guess...

    McGale's and "The Omagh Stud" are on Market St., rather than Campsie Road. James McGale is in the 1911 census as a Grocer and Baker but he's still on John Street with in 1901. In 1901 Armour J MacFarlane is working as a photographer while his father William is a Grocer and Merchant. However in 1911 they are both working as photographers. (Hence the Omagh Studio, I presume).

    Three people not wishing their faces to be recorded, or was it coincidence? Can't get over the 'vehicle free' road!
