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? Is it still the same and what more can we find out about it> Photographers: Dillon Family Contributors: Luke Gerald Dillon, Augusta Caroline Dillon Collection: Clonbrock photographic Collection Date: 1901 NLI Ref: CLON645 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

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. Apologies and especially to Oaktree Brian who noticed the lack of a title on the image. Photographer: A. H.

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.

Square, Portlaw, Co. Waterford

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!

I remember that summer in Dublin
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!

Looking out at Look Out!
Description: From the drama of John Spooner searching the internet for knickers yesterday, we have a dramatic outlook today from Teelin in Co. Donegal. 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.

Ladders for salmon and stairways to heaven - what next?
Description: Well from one place of religious significance to another! Those who spend their time fishing will identify with the gentleman standing on the rocks overlooking the salmon ladder in Belleek and the pleasure it must give him to see them climb to the lake? It looks enormous but was it natural or man made?

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

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!

Description: The Stereo Pairs Collection and a beach scene for today’s post with lots of donkeys, carts, and layabouts on view.

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...

The flowers are abundant, the windows are open, so it was probably Sunday 5th June when the Irish summer arrived – and departed?

MH12/9363/397 Letter from W E Goodacre.
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.”

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. This watercolour profile of the island may be a copy from an original or it may be the original from which later engravings were made.

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.

Song of the lonely boatman

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"???

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.

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.
Description: A Mason image to begin this weeks postings. Specifically, a maritime scene, with what seems a familiar headland in the background(?) 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.

He handed me a wet fish!
Description: This interesting shot from the Keogh Collection shows a group of men gathered around a car at an election rally. The man on the ground has a fine set of "mutton chop" sideburns. The candidate has a hat that has been crushed many a time and has taken on a shape all its own. Who, where and when? Rory_Sherlock was first to suggest (and we have many strong reasons to accept it) that this image was taken at the courthouse in Ennis, County Clare. Perhaps around the same time (1917) as a similar Keogh Brother's image of De Valera on the steps of the court house - as part of his successful by-election bid that summer.

How great and good the deceased was remains to be discovered - but the monument is impressive! As per today's inputs (and Richard Whately's Wikipedia entry), while his works were impressive, it seems the personality of the man himself was something of an acquired taste. Wikipedia (by way of Who Do You Think You Are?) also tells us that Kevin Whatley (Lewis off of Inspector Morse) was a distant rellie.....

The castle at the Salmon Leap!
Description: This lovely Royal plate image from Mr. French of Leixlip Castle with the Liffey in the foreground to start the week with a bang. The Liffey along that stretch and down along through Lucan and the Strawberry Beds is just beautiful with all the big houses and the fine land to green the view! Based on some fine shots of the same view from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] it would seem that it is the trees that "green the view" today. And at least partially obscure the castle. The boat house is still visible and extant however....

Down the old bog road
Description: Yesterday we had a couple bringing home the turf and today we have people living on the bog with a straight road leading off to the distant hills. The cataloguer seems to have been under the impression that the people were leaning on a rick of turf but it looks more like their home to me! Do you agree and where is it? Whether temporary or otherwise, the general consensus is that this is a picture dwelling. And O Mac has expertly pinpointed it to the road between Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey in Connemara....

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?

Boating on Lough Dan

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?

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!

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. An unusual church, in that it doesn’t have a steeple, a tower, or anything higher than the statue in the front. Given the passage of time and the changes in vocations, is it still there?

White's house not the White House.
Description: Another Poole image for today and a house apparently owned by the White family. A good solid house with an extension to the side. I love the way the conservatory has been incorporated into the building and hopefully it is able to maximise the exposure to the sun/ Photographer: A. H.

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!

Passage
Description: When I saw the title in the catalogue I thought that this might not be a great shot but I am happy to post such a fine view! This is a beautiful Poole Collection image and away from the studio shots that we expect. The scene has changed somewhat over the years but not that much. I stood on those heights a few years ago watching the Tall Ships pass down to the sea, magic! Photographer: A. H.

On the rocks at Church Bay, Weavers Point. Crosshaven.

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.

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...

Boys will be boys.
Description: An unusual human interest image today from the Mason Collection. Boys being boys, down the docks, playing with the water and never a care for the danger. The nearby ship says Belfast, but this could be in any port in Ireland or the UK. It is however Dublin :) Custom House Quay more precisely. Looking upstream on the Liffey towards Loopline Bridge....

An open door and barrels galore!

Loo Bridge, Co. Kerry (and no toilet humour please?)
Description: Yet another wonderful Royal plate from Mr. French today with a valley scene from Glenflesk, Co. Kerry. Loo Bridge in Glenflesk looks to have been the centre of activity in the area at that time but I for one never heard of it! What was the bridge used for and does it still stand? And the answer is that, while no longer in use (as a rail line, station and bridge at least), much of the structures we see here still remain. Another shot mercifully left out of our "no longer standing" album :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900.
