Rocky beauties
Description: To end a bizarre week, we have this charming image captured during a visit by the Clonbrocks to the Aran Islands. The stub of an ancient cross, set among the rocky fields, and emphasising its age, there are two young locals – a lad and a lassie. What can we find out about it, and when was it taken? +++ UPDATE +++ Well, the best thing we found out about this photograph is that we need to horizontally flip it in our catalogue. The second-best thing is that it was taken before “the twenty-one cottages were built in 1914”. (Thank you, Mike, you're always great for the island information.)

The Model School in Enniscorthy
Description: The Model School sounds like a school in miniature, but there are quite a few throughout the country. Some of them are large institutions like this one in Enniscorthy, others are smaller. But they all appear to have been excellent places of education. Morning Mary attended one, and has many happy memories made rosier by the passage of time, no doubt! +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks, Domhnall Sioradáin, for explaining that Model Schools were part of the original model (Domhnall couldn't resist!) for national primary education in Ireland, 1831. Model schools were set up, and older bright pupils would act as monitor apprentices and later become teachers. In 1870, model schools were replaced by 2-year residential training colleges, such as Carysfort in Dublin.

The Bailey of the Alps?
Description: At fist glance, this image of the Bailey Light at Howth looks as if it is surrounded by vast mountains and rocky slopes. Instead it appears that a very poor effort at old style photo shopping has taken place or that the plate – a fine Royal sized plate has deteriorated dramatically. What a pity, as the Bailey is seen in splendid detail here!

An ecclesiastical complex among the tussocks
Description: The title sums this one up! An ecclesiastical complex in the midst of tussocks of grass. Where, when, and what is it like now? I suspect that this is one that will be joining the “No longer standing” category? +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks to Sharon Corbet's prodigious memory, it turns out that we've visited this location before. It's the Hevey Institute in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. But sure lookit, while it might have been less craic for all of you, it means that another one of our photographs is now Location Identifed rather than languishing in our catalogue as “Institutional building, nine bays wide, (three under pediment of central element) with central tower”. So that can't be bad...

Water under the bridge
Description: Dutchy and Jim captured a beauty here with lovely creamy water and a fine three arched bridge somewhere in Ireland! The scene is rugged, rustic and rural with some effort to divert the water just evident at the bottom of the shot. I wonder what it looks like today and does the beautiful bridge still stand?

Lying about on the lines.
Description: And its then I'll repair to the Curragh of Kildare as the song goes and obviously these men have taken that literally. "F" Lines in the Curragh Camp shows lots of wooden walled buildings, some strange fencing around two cannon and several layabouts. Perhaps those who know uniforms can tell us when this was taken and any of the detail around the shot and the area.

No lockdown at Hotel Goldner Loewe
Description: The Clonbrocks could travel and were off to Europe where they took some images that have provided us with great entertainment. This lovely image of a lake/river side scene with boats, hotel and hills on view was taken at "Stolzenfels". Is it correct?

Beetles, points and Foynes.
Description: For some reason O'Dea has made the trip down to Foynes in Co. Limerick to view a "Beetle" moving an empty wagon which can only mean that a new piece of kit is being trialed? Foynes was always a small town well down the Shannon Estuary from Limerick City and the ships passed it by to get to the port in the city. This has all changed now and today Foynes is a fine deep water port taking ships that could never have navigated the winding estuary! Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Mr. Mosley and staff at your service!
Description: Since we are on a run of buildings here is a shop, apparently in Waterford with the staff standing ready to serve! Mr. Mosley had a fine shop with plenty of frontage and even some sideage but where is/was it and and what did they do for a living? Morning Mary was having some issues with WiFi earlier and though I did all this work already obviously it got lost out there in the ether.

The Ups and Downs of Victoria Crescent
Description: The whole northern coast of Ireland is a wonder of beautiful scenery, beautiful towns and villages, and welcoming people. And Portstewart is one of the very best. This Eason image shows Victoria Crescent in Portstewart in a very different time, with ladies in long dresses and the arrival of modern communications in the form of telegraph/phone poles!

Simpler days
Description: I know that across the country, wedding ceremonies are being cancelled or heavily curtailed, because of this terrible virus. It must be causing great anguish to all involved. Today, we travel back to simpler times and present a very happy looking couple, I presume on the day of their wedding. I wonder who the other two people are? Siblings? Best man and bridesmaid? I am sure we will know before the morning is out. The photograph was commissioned by Mr. Thomas Hogan of 1 Doyle Street, Waterford.

Mount Jerome Cemetery
Description: Sometimes I think it is a little bit ghoulish but I find visiting cemeteries quite fascinating! Seeing the details of those residents/citizens who have passed on to their eternal reward can give you such an insight to the place and the people that often you cannot obtain from the buildings! Mount Jerome is out there on the south side so I am not too familiar with it, and will watch with interest to see what develops!

Smoke Violet Mixture – for psychedelic effect?

All’s well in Sunday’s Well
Description: A very rare visit to the Fergus O’Connor collection today, and to a very neat, clean, and quite striking St. Vincent’s Church in Sunday’s Well in Cork. The church looks to be attached to a religious establishment, yet is open to the general public and the people attending have dressed up for the occasion. Sunday’s Well has always intrigued me!

Description: The junction of Eccles Street, Dorset Street, and Temple Street feature in this shot from the Wiltshire Collection. Perhaps not in the summer, but not at the height of winter either. The junction back then was busy with lots of cars and pedestrians on the move. It may not have been raining but the potholes are still holding onto some water to show that it is about!

Look Out Cliff looks bleak and desolate in mono, but is surely a place of great natural beauty just like the rest of that county? Is that Mr. French’s assistant standing, looking out at us?

Miss Mary O’Leary says OPEN UP!
Description: The National Library of Ireland is reopening TODAY and Miss Mary O'Leary is ready for business! This fine Clarke image taken just outside the front door of the Library is as good a way of reminding people that we are open once again after the lockdown. What is even more exciting is that this is just one of two photos we will be putting up today as this is intended to advertise the opening. Nonetheless any information on the image would be very much appreciated? If any of you are thinking of following Miss O'Leary's example and visiting us, please see this information you need.

Fishing for souls in Limerick
Description: The Sacred Heart Church AKA “The Jesuits” in the Crescent in Limerick City is today’s image from the Lawrence Collection.

Where they stole Trevelyan’s corn...
Description: Since I was very young, Athenry has been a name that resonates with me. Travelling in the old steam trains to Sligo, the call “All change at Athenry” would ring out, and the name had that special appeal. I was tempted to give it the title “Low lie the fields” but that was just a bit too obvious, and as there is a Peeler in the shot, I thought a bit of crime and punishment might be more appropriate!

Adding a bit of colour
Description: Whoever put this shot in the catalogue must have been a townie! It is titled “Pony and trap, Ring of Kerry, Ireland” and this is no pony and trap, but a working cart and horse. We haven’t had the pleasure of visiting with Mr. Tilbrook for quite some time, but as ever he brings a keen eye and a touch of colour to the proceedings. They say that you should be careful what you wish for and when I put up the title on yesterday’s shot, I didn’t consider the after effects. I had an ear worm for the rest of the day and nana nah nah nanana nah is going around in my head ever since. :-( +++ UPDATE +++ Star of this show is Mike Grimes, who pinpointed the location of this photograph with uncanny accuracy! So not the Ring of Kerry as we thought, but rather the Skellig Ring. Thanks very much, Mike. Another location identified...

Description: Our Education Document of the Month for December is this letter from W E Goodacre, Clerk to the Guardians of the Mansfield Poor Law Union, to the Poor Law Board, 1852. Here he describes a request for a Christmas meal for the inmates of Mansfield Workhouse. (MH 12/9363/397) “A subscription has been entered into in Mansfield to afford a treat of roast beef and plum pudding to the inmates of the workhouse on Christmas Day next [instead of the usual diet of the day]” “Great inconvenience would arise from the treat being given on the Christmas day and I was instructed to request that you would be pleased to sanction it being given on a subsequent day, either Dec 31st or January 1st.”

Newbridge railway station
Description: Our Mr O'Dea may have recorded the decline and fall of the railway system in Ireland, but Mr. French recorded some of its earlier days. This fine image of Newbridge station in County Kildare shows French at his best. Men working on the line while a supervisor looks down from the platform. A fairly tranquil scene otherwise as people wait, but what is the man on the bottom right near the luggage doing? UPDATE: For the umpteenth time, wall posters helped us establish a fairly sound date for this photo. Thanks to sharon.corbet, BultacoFan, and suckindeesel for narrowing a 20 year time span down to May 1910, specifically after 20th May. And thank you too, BeachcomberAustralia, for reminding us about how the usage and root of words and language can vary greatly between this Northern and your Southern Hemisphere.

This was by Lieutenant Henry Lidgbird Ball, commander of HMS Supply while en route from Botany Bay to found a penal settlement on Norfolk Island.

Gwynfryn, open windows, elegant lady and.... a DOG!
Description: On a day when the rain is coming down like stair rods in Dublin the Clonbrock Collection brightens it up with a lovely summer shot from Wales in the early 1900s. A young lady standing outside a terrace of houses on the village green where many of the upstairs windows are wide open to catch any breeze, and ladies are out in skirts, blouses and hats. The most attractive part of the scene, for some at least, is the fact that there is a dog on display! UPDATE: Sounding the Location Identified Klaxon, thanks to our own John Spooner ! This is not Wales, but the very picturesque Broadway in the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, England. Glad to see that the dog in the distance was appreciated. Our dog provision working group search tirelessly for canine content.

Wexford on a calm day - Is actually Wicklow

Song of the lonely boatman
Description: This lovely scene vies with yesterdays visit to Claudy in County Derry for sheer beauty!

Given the stillness of the water it seems unlikely that it will be getting much wind to fill that sail? By the way is that what they would call a "lateen"???

Ida, sweet as apple cider
Description: We're taking a swift detour from Clonmel to Waterford (I think) today. This is the Ida. Wildly out of focus for a Poole glass plate, but that's surely to be forgiven as the boat is in motion. What was the Ida? Why all the flags? And where was it off to, loaded with enough people on board to give Elfin Safety a heart attack? Also, 1901-1954? We can surely do better than this? Flickroonies laugh at such a wide date range... derangedlemur points us to this fantastic article by Andrew Doherty of tidesandtalesDOTie which suggests that this image dates to c.1898. Likely it was before c.1905 when the paddle steamer Ida left the service of the Waterford Steamship Company. Before being apparently broken up in 1908.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Likely before c.1905 (last sailing).

High and dry on a rocky shore.

The many boats and fishing vessels grounded during low tide gives the men a chance to carry out checks and repairs. The breakwater seems more natural stone than a man made construction.

Window with possible baptismal font to fore.
Description: I was mistaken during the week when I described the beautiful castle as being a ruin but there is little doubt about this one! A beautiful window in a ruined monastery with an altar/baptismal font in the foreground. Where is it and what does it look like today? The answer (which I will keep short as Flickr is breaking my heart today) is that this is Muckross Abbey in County Kerry....

The ruins of the manor slowly decay...
Description: A Mason image of a fortified manor house somewhere in Ireland with battlements, mullioned windows and an abundance of ivy denoting its great age. As it was beginning to look dilapidated I suspect that it is no longer standing? Thankfully I was wrong, and Ormond Castle in Carrick-on-Suir not only survived by has very recently been restored...

Only the donkey knows how to pose!
Description: A posed photograph from the Lawrence Collection. Intended for postcards no doubt. A country man and woman with donkey and cart getting ready to go to market. The buildings in the background should make it easy to identify the place - if not the time. And indeed [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] quickly identified this as Courthouse Square (and the courthouse) in Galway. Further refinement on the date (and the names of the people pictured) will likely evade us this time....

Nurses home on a steep hill
Description: From the sublime of a proclamation that the Queen had died and her son had acceded to the throne to this, the nurses home for the Royal Infirmary in Dublin way back when; NLI has it all. Welcome back to all who are not on holidays and we here at Library Towers hope you all had a happy Easter! derangedlemur confirmed that this should fall into our "no longer standing" album. In that it was (perhaps just within the last decade or so) demolished to make way for the new Criminal Courts of Justice close to the Parkgate entrance of the Phoenix Park...

Woman standing beside large stone/dolmen
Description: A few years ago we had a photo from the Mason Collection of the Brownshill Dolmen in Co Carlow. I hope this photo will prove more of a challenge, I am thinking that it will be difficult to fix on the correct location. That said, I have been wrong in the past! As he has done before, derangedlemur was able to extend his location-identification skills to points foreign, and established that this is the Pierre levée dolmen in Poitiers in France. The grapes in the foreground helped :) Collection: Mason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1890-1910 NLI Ref: M52/24 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

The
Description: This bank building in Ballyshannon reminds me more of the famous "Hatters Castle" in AJ Cronin's novel of the same name than any other bank I have ever seen. Somebody seems to have taken spare pieces from all over the island and stuck them together to make this confection. Is it still standing and if so what does it look like now?

When the horse was king of the road!
Description: From effin effigies to the busy main street in Bray, Co. Wicklow, all in the course of 24 hours? That is the joy and excitement of following the NLI on Flickr. This lovely street shot from the Fergus O’Connor Collection shows a world of life and movement, and all from 100 years ago. Sure where else would you get it?

Square, Portlaw, Co. Waterford

We're in Mullingar, but not a heifer in sight?

A Solar Powered time machine...
Description: In a beautiful part of a beautiful county stands the beautiful wee town of Gweedore, and so we will start our week with a visit to the Gweedore Hotel. A posed shot by the looks of it, with a gentleman standing behind a bench with his hat resting on the seat. The flowers are abundant, the windows are open, so it was probably Sunday 5th June when the Irish summer arrived – and departed?

Old stones and high grass in Dingle
Description: This Lawrence image of Kilmalkader in Dingle is one of a number taken by the indomitable Mr. French on a trip to the Kingdom. It looks pretty dilapidated at that time and one wonders how it looks today? I love his use of "Forced perspective" using the cross to highlight and dominate the church behind. He was a quare one Mr. French!

View of Turlough Park with round tower in background, Castlebar, Co.Mayo
Description: I know that we have had two Wynne images already this week but you cannot have too much of a good thing. There is a freshness and sense of place to these images that just makes me feel at home with them. Today's shot shows a grand house with a round tower and ruins of a monastery in the background. Is Turlough Park still around or has it, like many such houses, fallen to the ravages of time and changing circumstances? Photographers: Thomas J. Wynne Collection: Thomas J.

The posers and the dog.
Description: While yesterdays boys fishing was a natural photograph, today's beautiful stereo pairs image is carefully posed with even the dog sitting obediently for the photographer. The number of well heeled tourists and visitors might indicate that the building in the background was an hotel? What can we find out about the place, the people and the location? [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] was first to identify this as the Woodenbridge Hotel in County Wicklow. Also/fomerly known as Wooden Bridge Inn or Putland Arms Hotel, the fashions on show would seem to suggest that this was captured towards the middle/end of the 1860-1880s range...
