IMPERIAL WEEK - Eden Quay from Bachelors Walk
Description: To conclude our IMPERIAL WEEK we have a partial Imperial Plate with a view from Bachelors Walk along Eden Quay and down river to Dublin Bay. It is such a busy picture that the loss of the bottom left corner really is a pity because of all the detail that has been lost. Thank you all for your many contributions during the week and while we are at it a virtual sticky bun with extra stickiness to Beachcomber Australia for his transformation of "Cabooses" to 'Cabeece". A new one for future Flickroonies to use and savour!!!

IMPERIAL WEEK - The analogue recording Court?
Description: Continuing Imperial Week and a visit to the Four Courts area of Dublin at the time of the construction of this, the Records Court whatever that may have meant. What should make this photograph interesting is that this is the 100th anniversary of the Civil War which was kick started by the occupation and later siege of the Four Courts. Let's see what emerges?

IMPERIAL WEEK - Arroo from Cork?
Description: Continuing our Imperial Week with the fine Lawrence Collection Imperial size glass plate negatives. Yesterday we were up in the North of the island at Fair Head and Ballycastle. Today we go right down south to Patrick Street in Cork city with lots going on and lots to see. Looking across the bridge I remember a much closer image and us having great fun identifying everything from the clock to the family of printers who got in touch. As a child we had a chant: Aroo from Cork, I am, aroo, How're the potatoes, Big and small, How do you ate them Shkin and all Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Circa 1865 - 1914 NLI Ref: L_IMP_2160 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

IMPERIAL WEEK - Long jetty and sinking ships at Fair Head
Description: What a wonderful shot to begin Imperial Week? Fair Head in the background, a flimsy looking jetty with a whole lot of activity in the foreground and a conundrum or two for good measure. Why is the horseless cart stopped halfway along the jetty? Why is there a face off between two cartless horses and what is going on with the ship keeled over and sunk? Virtual sticky buns are promised to all who can provide solutions!

Being
Description: A commission by Allied Ironfounders to photograph their latest "Down to Date" stove. There it stands, all gleaming and new with a promise of many years of cooking and heating and creating a warm sense of welcome in kitchens all over the land! My late father in law was an Iron Moulder, a skilled if dirty and backbreaking profession and he worked in AIF back in 1940. He may even have been one of those who produced the parts for this stove?

Before the arrival of Eurovision I imagine?
Description: More of an "Upsy-Upsy" than an "Upsy-Downsy" but a cracking pair of photographs just the same. It says "Mill Race at Millstreet" but that flow of water is neither above or below the mill wheel so unless there is another wheel somewhere that must be wrong?

Shadow at the crossroads - dah de dah dah
Description: Those who look askance at the last four 'words' above will be too young to remember the old black and white detective movies of the 1940's and 50's and their atmospheric commentary on the happenings on-screen. Today we have a Poole mystery that requires a bit of detective work to tell us where the crossroads is and what it looks like today. Judging by the date and the tyre marks on the road the crossroads was a busy one with plenty of traffic passing through. Photographer: A. H.

She: I told you not to come this way! He: Yes dear!!!
Description: An interesting photo from the Clonbrock Collection this morning. A steam traction/threshing machine bogged down on some soft soil in a narrow laneway. That would have been a right nuisance and difficult to move with no modern tractors or lifting gear to assist. The lady standing there, arms akimbo, is surely thinking those words all men dread to hear "I told you so!"

Des res in quiet rural location
Description: Linziestown House, Wexford commissioned by Mr. McElligott, Irish Land Commission is the title on this image from the Poole Collection. In 1927 the Irish Land Commission was in full swing, divvying up parcels of land to farming folk and disposing of big houses where buyers could be found. What is known about Linziestown House and those who lived there before and after. It looks a fine solid house and well used and lived in from the photograph. Photographer: A. H.

Man the pump - and look out for the Dog!
Description: Main Street, Fethard, Co. Tipperary with an audience watching the man at the town pump - or perhaps at the photographer who appears to be directly behind? The important thing about this lovely Lawrence photograph though is the patience of the dog while it contemplates why the chicken crossed the road and where it is now?

Asylum - a place of safety and peace
Description: While the name "Asylum" may mean a place of safety and hopefully peace but down the years the connotations have been less pleasant. Being confined in an asylum carried a terrible stigma that lasted for the remainder of many peoples lives. The old psychiatric hospital in Enniscorthy is featured on the double here in this beautiful Eblana image. The scene is peaceful and pleasant though that fine building stands abandoned and neglected today.

When people had the courage to stand up and be counted
Description: Today is the day after the death of the former Ulster Unionist leader, David Trimble RIP. This image is a reminder that the troubles go back a long way and that when people take a decision to change and make a stand that the risks are great and the might of the state can be brought to bear against you. This image was not digitised when we were running the Evictions series but is a good reminder of those terrible days and all the trauma that ordinary people went through. Like David Trimble, John Flanagan and his family were people of courage who stood up and took risks for what they believed in!

Bring flowers of the rarest...
Description: A charming photograph from the Clonbrock Collection today with a group of school girls and boys with large bunches of flowers and plants. It brought to mind the tradition on RTE Radio 1 of some presenter playing a recording of Father Sidney McEwan singing "Flowers of the rarest" on May 1st each year.

Dashed Castle in the Royal County
Description: We end the week's posts with a small castellated building in Navan, County Meath from the Eason Photographic Collection. The castle has seen extensive work to make it more habitable with what seems to be an extension out the back, a coat of dashed render and some significant chimneys for cooking/heating.

Beached - or gone for a pint in Costelloe's?
Description: A coastal scene with a fishing boat beached just below a road in what looks like an urban area. There are so many clues to the location in the background, the Martello Tower, the monastic ruin and of course the buildings along the seafront. We haven't had the pleasure of Mr. Hargraves company and this is an especially pleasant opportunity to change that. Happy 23rd of June everybody!!! Photographers: Joshua H.

Description: A really fine Monkey Morgan image for this morning that will give those of you who are not follicley challenged a real Brylcreem bounce!

Remembering reflections.
Description: A Mr. Keane commissioned this image from Poole showing a shop/office with flags flying and posters in the upstairs windows. The caption "We don't forget our own" and the names "Leamy" and "Sexton" with "Meagher". We may assume that the "Meagher" is he of the Sword but Leamy and Sexton I am not familiar with.

Sun going down on Dublin Bay???
Description: I know, I know! If you look down the Liffey from the Loop Bridge then you should be looking due East but the shadow on the ship to the right looks, to me, like those from a setting sun?

West Cork for the summer?  Heaven!
Description: The thought of spending time in West Cork during a good summer is so appealing and the area around Bandon is a great place to be based! Here we have the river, a bridge across and it seems the Post Office. It's funny how things have changed because not that long ago the Post Office was one of the most important buildings in any city, town or village.

It has been some stint of work, never missing a day and keeping the show steadily on the road, I am sure you will join me in wishing Mary and her husband a big "Felices vacaciones". The bad news is that you are stuck with me for the next couple of weeks. To start us off we have a lovely Poole photo of a young Master Stephenson from Castlane in Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary.

Where Art and Learning combine
Description: I just used Google Translate to find out what "Qui sint heli" actually meant so that I might be taken for a latin scholar but am not impressed with the answer! Who is Eli?

Description: A handsome couple with their DOG pose outside their halldoor on Arranmore, off the coast of Donegal way back in 1975. They are obviously living high above the shore and have their home pristine, newly whitewashed and with a slate roof. What was happening to bring Denis to the island at that time?

O'Dea, O'Dea oh Donadea!
Description: This morning was one of those days when we didn't see the castle for the trees, scrawny as they may be! It's so unusual to see a castle among the O'Dea images that we never noticed that DEA appears repeatedly, it just passed us by like a train. Is this the traditional seat of the O'Deas? Is it still around? In 1958 it looked like it was ripe for knocking though we hope that that did not happen? Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Description: A scene from High Street in Tuam, Co. Galway sums up how the times were rapidly changing. On the right a shiny motor car with it's well dressed owner/driver paying close attention. On the left and directly opposite a young girl looking alone and depressed though warmly dressed. At the top of the street traditional means of transport, the horse and cart and donkeys and carts. All has changed, changed utterly!

All this for the
Description: An elaborate series of constructions across the River Moy at Ballina must have cost a fortune at the time and all to catch the mighty Atlantic Salmon - the "King of Fish"! As a child spending school holidays in Ballina Morning Mary's memories of fishing in Ballina was of men rowing out with their nets in a loop. On return to the shore they hauled their nets in and always seemed to have a plentiful supply of big silver salmon which were then bludgeoned to death and placed in boxes. The pictured set-up seems so much more sophisticated than that!

Anyone for tennis?
Description: Tennis in long trousers could be uncomfortable at times but tennis in long skirts would be uncomfortable all of the time! At least that is Morning Mary's experience in these matters and playing rugby in long skirts is virtually impossible:-) This seems to be a very early O'Connor image and was taken on a very fine day in the beautiful town of Ballycastle in Co.

The Wild Geese in Cremona
Description: This glass lantern slide image of the members of the Irish Brigade doing their thing in Cremona from the Mason Collection is something a little different. Nearby where I live an old house is called "Cremona Lodge" and appears to have been taken over by someone with French connections. They have erected a plaque on a gate celebrating the Irish soldiers of the Irish Brigade and the Napoleonic Irish Legion. An interesting story no doubt? Photographer: Thomas H.

Oh or Ah Voca it's still a jewel in a green crown
Description: Whether it's called Ovoca or Avoca or even Ballykissangel the little village remains a charming and beautiful place in the heart of Co. Wicklow. Mr. French chose a nice quiet time to visit with traffic down to the minimum, just Neddy and his driver as a little bit of local colour. I brought some American visitors there once who wanted to see Ballykissangel and they had binge watched the entire series several times. For them the visit was a highlight!

Description: A very serious looking group celebrating the wedding of a handsome couple from Halfwayhouse in Waterford. Judging by the clothes we can say that it was after the 1920's and judging by the carpet standards had slipped! The name of the house/place "Blenheim" is interesting.

Understated elegance in Hazelwood
Description: This squared off block of a house could almost be ugly yet it has an understated elegance, a sense of solidity and of comfort to it! Sligo is one of the least appreciated counties in Ireland and to ask many young people they would mention the surfing while older people might mention Yeats but it has so much more to offer. The views around the county are spectacular, the mountains may not be very high but are full of history and the welcome is warm. It is easy to see why the residents of Hazelwood chose to live there!

Laying parallel lines
Description: One would imagine that laying cable beside a railway line would be straightforward enough but judging by the signal pole on the ground that is/was not the case! Obviously electricals related to signalling and points would have been at risk and had to be removed or avoided. I like the fact that the supply wagon has a case of "Macardles" on standby for cases of emergency! Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Dominated by King John's Castle but replete with ancient buildings including a MINT where coinage was made under royal warrant.

When you think about how this island seems heavily populated with 4/5 million people it must have been crammed with 8 million by the start of the famine.

This Royal Plate from Mr. French gives great detail of the fashions, the people and the buildings but not much information on the produce on sale/display. The clothing will probably be the best clue as to the date!

Limerick Hams to Dalkey
Description: For today we have a view of a very familiar scene, O'Connell Bridge from the south side looking up O'Connell Street towards the Pillar. The activity captured here is just fascinating with the electric trams, the trucks, vans, cars and lots and lots of pedestrians. The sign in the foreground which shows that ladies must walk on the road is taking things a little bit too far!

Meeting the neighbours
Description: Having been to visit Lord Dunsany last week from on high we now get an opportunity, thanks to Monkey Morgan, to visit his neighbours in Killeen Castle, Co. Meath. Looking at the shot one can see the way the outbuildings are set at an angle to the castle proper in such a way that they do not impede the view for the main house?

The biggest chicken ever or...
Description: What a cracker of an image of Main Street, Arklow, Co. Wicklow? Horse apples galore, chairs set out in a line, ladies in big hats, sun shades out over shop windows and a strange looking chicken eying up the photographer. The style of the young lady on the left striding out towards the footpath makes her look confident and as if she is pointedly ignoring the photographer make this for me!

Captain's on the bridge!
Description: Looking the Quays in Waterford from the Ferrybank side with a few minor distractions blocking the view! A ship unloading on the North quay with lots of dock workers standing around looking at the photographer while the Captain and Mate are on the bridge keeping an eye on proceedings! Yesterdays visit to Killarney was very interesting ranging from the construction of the hall to the burning down and the steamy scenes of the phenomenon that was the film "Helga"! Photographer: A. H.

From East Avenue to Killarney in one leap?
Description: East Avenue Hall, Killarney, Co. Kerry where the gentlemen sit on the seats and the ladies sit on their dresses in the grass! It's a far cry from East Avenue, New York to Killarney and yet not so far at all at all! I'm on tenterhooks waiting to find out what this is all about and where is it now?

Steps of stairs
Description: The Phelan's of South Lodge, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary make a very handsome family in this charming Poole image from 1939. The children all appear to be very close in age and must surely have a number of Irish twins if not twins proper? What can we find out about them? Photographer: A. H.

Long's are up and Callaghan's are down
Description: A fine Royal Plate capturing the top end of North Main Street, Bandon in Co. Cork on a quiet day. The ladies are not interested in posing for Mr. French and have moved in to Long's and O'Callaghan's to thwart his efforts to make them famous. Down the street from them is a dog, or it may be a cat though it looks more like a "wannabee wallaby" - what do you think Danny and Foxglove?

The British have landed...
Description: It has been a while since we had an O'Dea image and todays is a cracker given all the changes that have taken place on that skyline since 1960. HMS Malcolm, a ship from the Royal Navy paying a courtesy visit to Dublin must have been a security nightmare for the peelers in Pearse Street? Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Looking down on those who looked down
Description: Dunsany Castle in County Meath from the lens of the mighty "Monkey" Morgan! These big houses set in rolling pastureland, bright deciduous woodlands and clear streams are becoming a thing of the past but Dunsany still goes on. The stables look as magnificent as the house and that walled garden must be a haven of peace on a bright summers evening?

The harp that once through Tara's Halls...
Description: Tara Hill with Lia Fail is the title for this grassy ditch with a bit of a stone sticking up out of the mound. Yet historically this place is the Holy Ground! I must admit that having been reared on the tales of Cormac MacArt, Laoighaire with the Horses Ears and so on, standing on Tara for the first time was underwhelming, to say the least! Probably not the best photograph of the one time centre of Irish civilisation but it does mark the passing of so much time and what time does to earthen structures. Photographer: Thomas H.

We are the Champions, my friends
Description: The Rockwell College Senior Rugby team of 1935/36 look like they were fed plenty of good Tipperary beef for the whole season - and several more before that! A fine body of young men with Munster caps to go with their trophy. Can we find out about them and how did they fare afterwards? Photographer: A. H.

Jammy times at the Jammet Hotel
Description: From the overstated elegance of the Metropole Hotel on Monday we move to the understated comfort of the Jammet Hotel on "Sraid Andreais Naomha" in Dublin's city centre. Congratulations on yesterdays work, it was a rollercoaster watching the family tale unravel and wonderful to find out so much about a handsome family!

Vennachar Church Survives 1903
Description: The Vennachar Community Memorial Church is a testament to time and tragedy. It’s located on the Buckshot Lake Road immediately east of the hamlet of Vennachar. The prominent sign at the front entrance reads: Vennachar Community Memorial Church Survivor of 1903 Fire Methodist Episcopal 1875 - 1925 United Church 1925 - 1975 Restored 1987 Through Generous Donations of Time and Money Visitors Inquire At Vennachar Store. The dry spring of 1903 was perfect for forest fires. A major one, remembered as “The Big Fire”, started between Mazinaw Lake and Vennachar. The fire started in brush left behind during timbering operations. A strong south wind pushed the fire directly towards Vennachar so powerful, several houses were burned to the ground. Residents hurried to save their livestock and take cover. Two other fires were reported in the immediate area the same day. The post office, new school, two stores, and the new parsonage could not be saved. Somehow, the church was spared and equally remarkable there was no loss of life. The Vennachar Memorial Church continues to stand the test of time. In 1954, Group of Seven artist A.Y. Jackson painted the church.

Ugh(ly) building on the riverbank
Description: From the elaborate elegance of the Metropole Hotel to this industrial grade bunker on the river bank in Waterford/Kilkenny within the space of 24 hours! While Morning Mary is reasonably familiar with the view from the Quays in Waterford she does not recognise this one. Perhaps when it was finished it changed from a pigs ear into a pearl????

Rooms with a view and old ghosts...
Description: A very interesting image from the lens of Mr. French today, the Metropole Hotel on the corner of Sackville (O'Connell) Street and Princes Street. Just one person seems to have stood still while the plate was exposed while many "ghosts" are seen moving into Princes Street. I imagine that it would have been such an addition to the life and activities of the modern O'Connell Stree?

A
Description: Normally the Mason Collection will have somewhere or something out of the ordinary on offer but in this case it is just a house! A big, solid, somewhat neglected house with lots of windows, many of them open in a rural setting. The catalogue title states "House - Rathalohean - No 44, Fr Mathew set." and therein may lie the clue. So, is it or isn't it? Photographer: Thomas H.

Boaters and ghosts in Newtownbarry/Bunclody
Description: Mr. French's images from Newtownbarry/Bunclody are some of the most atmospheric in the entire Lawrence Collection and this is no exception. The Carrigduff Road showing the entrance to some big building, a row of houses and a number of people, no dogs has that same warm, summery feeling similar to those that went before. The plants growing on the window boxes are strangely reminiscent of the briars in the windows of those homes resisting eviction in earlier times!

Some sing out loud on the telephone wires
Description: Staying beside the seaside though further up the east coast at Bangor in County Down. Prince Town Road, Bangor to be precise with lines of houses and the most impressive strings of wires strung on poles. Were they electricity or telephone? The man in the straw boater in the foreground is holding a very impressive two wheeled mode of transportation.
