Thatched cottages and flats on the bicycle - oh bliss!
Description: To end the week where we have had doubles, rebels and Gandelows we now have a truly charming Eason shot. A man mends a bicycle outside the door of a thatched cottage with a young girl in a pinny standing behind him watching the photographer at work. In the background is a town or city marked by a high spire dominating the landscape. There is no doubt but this scene has changed drastically in the meantime, if we can locate it(?) Rory Sherlock was quick with the location and subject: Old Town in Letterkenny, County Donegal. The spire in the background is that of the Cathedral of St. Eunan and St. Columba, which opened in 1901....

Is that a Ganlow or a Gondola I see before me?
Description: Those of you who are not "in the know" are wondering at that heading but the boat under the arch of the bridge is known as a "Ganlow" and allegedly they were based on the Gondola! The Shannon must have been at full tide to have the water so calm at that point of the river!

Sackville Street in full swing.
Description: Morning Mary is taking a bit of a punt today by posting two images of the same scene from the wonderful Eblana "upsidey downsie" collection. Since they are the same scene yet with great differences of population and activity we felt that together they would provide even more enjoyment? This image with trams, pedestrians and activity in abundance provides a lovely contrast to the first!

Start today, make no delay!
Description: Poor morning Mary is suffering a bad bout of vertigo after all the standing on her head trying to see the "Uppsidey Downsie" half of yesterdays Eblana Collection offering. So, for safety's sake, I've gone back to the ever reliable Mr. Poole for this mornings offering! Just in case there was any doubt about what was being advertised in this (extensive) window display, we have confirmation that Maclean's (note placement of the "a" and the apostrophe mister sign-writer) Opas Powder was an antacid marketed from at least the mid 1930s. In this case it is being heavily promoted by Curtis' pharmacy on Waterford's Barrack Street.... Photographer: A. H.

Hit 'em for six!
Description: Most Poole photographs have been carefully posed but this is a "live" cricket match in full swing. Some may feel that cricket it about as exciting and interesting as paint drying but for the enlightened it is a game of great skill and tactics and a wonderful way to pass a sunny day. The general consensus is that this image was taken at the grounds of Cork County Cricket Club on the Mardyke in Cork city. Probably in the first decade or so of the 1900s-1950s range....

Irish water buffaloes?
Description: This smashing shot from the lens of Mr. French looks so crisp and clear that one could imagine that you were looking at it live! Lough Gill in Sligo is beautiful at any time and this captures the atmosphere and life of the place. Can we locate that place today? And indeed we can. Or, at least, Niall McAuley and BeachcomberAustralia can. The OSI 6" (1888-1913) map confirms that this is an "aermotor pump" attached to Hazelwood (or is it Hazlewood) House in Calry, County Sligo....

Fahan in Lough Swilly.
Description: The pier at Fahan on Lough Swilly, Co. Donegal looks a lonely place in this beautiful Royal plate from the Lawrence Collection. Lough Swilly is famous for many things and one of the most famous is the kidnapping of Red Hugh O'Donnell there. If my memory holds good he was captured by a Carew and we visited the ancestral home of the Carew's earlier this week!

Enniscorthy, Castleboro - river and steps
Description: A big house near Enniscorthy in County Wexford taken from the level of the river. There is mention of "steps" but I cannot see them! Can you? As confirmed by today's contributors (and indeed by Wikipedia), Castleboro House was one of the many estate houses which did not survive the 1920s intact. While I can just about make out the steps (after some prompting) in this shot, it doesn't look like they've survived either. In fact, the water feature and falls seem to be all but gone also.....

We're going on a bear hunt!
Description: A cave deep in the woods would always hold the attraction of exploration and the thrill of danger, especially for the young at heart! Where is this one and has the scene changed much in the last 150 years? Rory_Sherlock was first to identify this as 'Badger's Cave', one of the colourfully named features of Blarney Castle and Gardens, and one of at least two caves beneath the old castle itself. The other, according to the equally colourful description of the Castle's website is known as 'the Dungeon'....

Deep in the valley O!
Description: To end the week after some really lovely images, here we have one from our Stereo Pairs Collection of an unidentified valley. It has a cluster of houses nestling below the heavily wooded slopes of a hill. (Congratulations Lemur for yesterdays identification, I didn't hold out much hope given the lack of detail behind but as ever you made it look simple!) And derangedlemur together with Niall McAuley was/were instrumental in identifying this one too. A task that was complicated no-end by the fact that the image was "mirrored". That was no significant deterent to the guy's identification of Woodenbridge, County Wicklow however....

The wheels fell off the wagon!
Description: Reading the catalogue description of this I thought that it would be like a "Cardall" image, an idealised bit of Paddywhackery but when I looked at the image my reaction was WOW! This is so different, almost Eastern European in its style and there are so many things to wonder at! Will we ever know where it was taken? And, in a way that should no longer surprise me I guess, the "WOW" factored continued. When derangedlemur neatly identified this photo as being taken along the Garron Road, close to Glenariff in County Antrim.....

A
Description: To the Eason Colllection for today's image and the "Midland Great Western Hotel, Recess, Co. Galway" which gives us a location but is it still standing? This is an unusual image in that the photographer has entered his shot complete with his camera! Niall McAuley tells us that this hotel is no longer standing. Apparently burnt-out during the Civil War, it likely wasn't rennovated afterwards, and seems to have been demolished since....

Description: Continuing where we left off on Friday (matters maritime) but this time from the wonderful Clonbrock Collection. This view may not be as iconic as the Skelligs, but nonetheless it provides a pleasing vista with sea, sky, mountains and a safe harbour. Following the tremendous achievement of the Irish Rugby team on Saturday in beating World Champions New Zealand Ireland can bask in the teams reflected glory for a wee while! And indeed it was from the antipodes that good news came again on this photo. With BeachcomberAustralia quickly identifying this as Bray harbour. The date range was refined also, with [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] pointing us to this Bray Cualann Historical Society webpage which tells us that the lighthouse pictured stood between the late 1890s and 1950s.

Hard to starboard
Description: From the far North West we are propelled to the South East to view the good ship SS Fastnet. Mr Poole was a great man for photographing sea going vessels, the date range here is made for “narrowing” though we have found in the past that these ships can have very long lives themselves. And so it was that [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] was able to narrow our 50 year range to just 5. (On the basis that the SS Fastnet had been the SS Monaleen prior to 1918, and was known as SS St Abbs Head after 1923. Putting us firmly in the "1920 plus or minus a few years" range...)

Sure it would take me hours to walk over that stuff...
Description: The catalogue description of this image suggests that it is a man standing on a castle, but the benefits of "Super Dooper Mega Zoom" (technical term) show that this is not the case. The man is sitting on a fairly modern building looking out over tidal flats with a town in the background. I suspect that this will take some time to identify but then the Lemur, Sharon or Niall are just as likely to make a liar out of me! Where is it? And, with his first (and critical) hypothesis, John McK has established that this is Bundoran, County Donegal. Thanks John!

At last - A dog accompanied by a woman!
Description: 'Painting by Sir John Lavery for Mrs. McEnery, Kilmoganny' is the catalogue title for this shot from the Poole Collection. Featuring a dog allowing itself to be held by a young lady it looks a really lovely portrait. I am no dog expert but it appears to me to be a Pekinese which would have been quite uncommon at that time. Who is the subject and can we date the painting itself? Based on inputs from Niall McAuley, BeachcomberAustralia, and sharon.corbet the general consensus is Sir John Lavery painted this in the 1910s. If so it could well be a portrait of his step-daughter Alice Trudeau (born c.1904), and she later commissioned a copy herself, as Mrs. McEnery. Some time after he marriage to a Jack McEnery in 1930. Seems imminently plausible to us Marys..... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954.

Apart from connecting the statue, its subject and its inscription to our recent Vartry Works photos, the main learnings here were from Niall McAuley. On date.

But the last shall be first and the first shall be last: May the Lord in His mercy be kind to Belfast
Description: A monument to Sir E. J. Harland in Belfast takes us up north of the border (which is in the news) today, and gives me an opportunity to quote from Maurice Craig's wonderful poem. Harland is a name that is synonymous with Belfast - but I confess to know very little about the bearer of that name, can you enlighten me? And so I have learned something - including his apparent like of the odd cigar :) While Edward James Harland is perhaps best known for his shipbuilding activities, his Wikipedia article also lists him as a politician. And he was Mayor and later MP for Belfast for a period. This statue was one of several by Thomas Brock on the grounds of Belfast's city hall. Though in a broad catalogue range (1860s-1910s), this image was likely captured within a few years of the statue's unveiling - in mid-1903.....

The ruin and the cross
Description: For most of our old photographs the vegetation will have increased in the area since it was taken but in this case hope and suspect that it has actually reduced. An old overgrown building, in a marshy, reed covered field with a distinctive high cross should be easy to find? With lightening reflexes, O Mac identified this as the church and high cross of the monastery (founded in the 6th century) on Inishmacsaint, Lough Erne.

A truly institutional institution!
Description: To the Stereo Pairs collection today, and to a vast institution somewhere. These great building projects were intended to provide treatment and care for people in a region and have lasted for many years though few remain in their original use to this day. Where are we and is it still standing? Niall McAuley and derangedlemur combine to tell us that this is longer standing. While it was standing (for 100 years between the 1820s and the 1920s), it was the "District Lunatic Asylum" on the Falls Road in Belfast. Originally built to designs by architects William Murray and Francis Johnston (the latter perhaps best known for his work on Dublin's GPO), it was demolished to make way for a new maternity hospital in the early 20th century....

I love shots like this with a wealth of detail, lots of people, animals, carts and produce on display. It will be difficult to date this from the evidence on view but we can enjoy all the atmosphere that Mr. French has so beautifully captured. The general concensus on date is that this image was captured after 1901. The rationale being that, while we can see the shop of J&M Farrell (brothers) in this image and the 1911 census return, at the time of the 1901 census, John and Michael Farrell were "serving their time" separately in other retail businesses on the same street. Hence this image surely dates after 1901 - as, at that time, they hadn't yet set up shop together..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Almost certainly after c.1901 (businesses visible).

Camlin Falls, Longford, Co. Longford
Description: These unusual water falls in County Longford are today's offering from the Lawrence Collection. Obviously part of a river management system and I imagine an adventure for kayakers if it still exists. I love the wee spout of water coming from the wall on the right, I can just imagine the boy on the dike putting his finger into just such a hole :-) derangedlemur, B-59and Niall McAuley have helped us map this to a spot on the River Camlin. Interestingly, the NIAH entry the guys point us to suggest this was part of a corn mill, while the historic OSI map puts it alongside a saw mill. Whatever the case, while the mills are long gone, the weir itself clearly remains.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Welcome home (to Levuka House, Courtown, Wexford)
Description: The catalogue description of this Eason shot is "Mansion near Gorey, Co. Wexford" and there is a fine house with additional buildings to the rere. For Morning Mary the delightful aspect of it is the two young girls waiting at the front door area to welcome their loved ones home! B-59 was first to identify the front door as that of Levuka House, Courtown, County Wexford. Designed in the 19th century by Thomas Newenham Deane (also designer of our home at Library Towers) and built for the Scott family, it was later associated with the Stopford 'dynasty'. Known by several names over the years (Invermore House, Oulart Hotel, Sands Hotel and Stopford House Hotel), it was apparently demolished relatively recently - making another sad addition to our "No Longer Standing" album....

Boys in uniform
Description: "Group of boys and young men in uniform commissioned by Mr. R. Grubb" is the title of this shot, and we have nine boys with uniform accouterments in shot. it reminds me of a ditty my mother would trot out sometimes along the lines: "We are the Boys Brigade, Dressed up in marmalade, threehapenny tuppeny pill box and a couple of yards of braid!" Is this a Boys Brigade group? Based on the typically insightful inputs on this image, it is confirmed that this is a group from the Church Lad's Brigade, an Anglican youth organisation. In this case almost certainly the Christ Church 'company' in Dublin, pictured outside the namesake cathedral.... Photographer: A. H.

Ridgways group when young - and old!
Description: Each morning I have a choice as to which photo to upload and these vary from the sublime to the tragic. Yesterdays shot reminding us of the misery that arose from evictions and other tragedies proved much more educational than we had expected. Today's shot is one that would warm the cockles of your heart. "Ridgways group when young" is the title but there are a couple of adults in there with a Granny looking like a key player in the group! I will enjoy finding out about the Ridgways, have a nice weekend! Based on the description ("Ridgways group when young"), and the census return for the Ridgway family from 1901, the general consensus is that image predates the lower catalogue date range bound. While it could have been a later copy, the suggestion is that this image was probably originally taken c.1890. Perhaps "out the back" of the family home on Newtown Road in Waterford. If correct, according to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] pictured here are Mary Atkinson (granny/mother-in-law), mother Kathleen, father Richard G. Ridgway, and children (oldest first): Henry, Helena, Mary, George, Joseph, Thomas, Leopold, Gerald and Richenda..... Photographer: A. H.

Ignore the camera, pretend to be working!
Description: A rare indoor shot from Dr. Clarke for this one, with two National Library Staff (please note that there are no women) concentrating on their work! I'm not too sure what we can find out about it, but It does show how little has changed in the Reading Room in the interim. To all those who extended kind wishes for my recent surgery I would like to say they were much appreciated! I now have a new knee to keep me occupied and am making progress day by day. Thank you all! As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] point out, it is longstanding lore in Library Towers that this image captures Seán T. O'Kelly. One-time Library Towers employee (1898-1902), and later President of Ireland (1945-1959). While this story/theory has not been corroberated by today's inputs, it equally hasn't been discounted.

Miss Grubbs wedding group
Description: I always love a good wedding photo and this is one of the best you will find. The date range of 1901 to 1954 should be narrowed very quickly and I do hold out the hope of you getting the exact day correct. I also expect the names of some of the participants to be discovered. The bride has a big job on her hands, it will be difficult to fling that beautifully arranged bouquet over her shoulder! John Spooner, sharon.corbet and Niall McAuley found the critical location, date and subject "evidence" on this one. In short, while this could be Eva Lucy Grubb, on the occassion of her marriage to Gilbert Southall on 12 April 1900, the general consensus is that it is more likely to be a photo of the marriage of her sister Hilda Grubb in 1907. John Spooner provides details of Hilda's marriage to William Hill on 29 July 1907, paraphrasing a report from the Waterford Standard that the:  marriage between William Hill of Belmont Lodge, Waterford and Miss Hilda M Grubb, eldest daughter of Mr J H Grubb of Bruce Villa, Clonmel. The marriage was celebrated at 9 a.m. the previous Monday [29th July] at the Friends' Meeting House, Clonmel. After the wedding breakfast and reception Mr and Mrs William Hill left for Dublin and the Island of Achill, where they intended to spend some weeks. sharon.corbet also provided confirmation that this picture was taken at the Grubb's homestead at Bruce Villa in Clonmel.....

Edenvale, Ennis, Co. Clare
Description: Here we are in County Clare. August is always a good time to go to Clare. In fact, any month is a good time to go to County Clare! Eden Vale, a very fancy house. I presume it was either destroyed in the early 1920s or it is now a school or a religious house of some sort. But I may be wrong.... And proved wrong I was. Kind of. After the Stacpoole family vacated their "country seat", this house was not demolished, not converted to a school, nor a convent - but a "tuberculosis sanatorium". Until the mid-20th century at least. It is now (as in, right now) available for purchase. Again. This time to someone with €3.5 million to spend at any rate....

In the long arms of the law!
Description: In this lovely if damaged glass plate, from the Clarke Collection, a member of the Dublin Metropolitan Police appears to have at least one prisoner on their way to the station. In the background some onlookers are watching the action! While there is perhaps a perfectly innocent explanation for what (we think) is captured here, the "snatched" nature of the shot suggests that Clarke was quickly trying to capture something fleeting. And hence that there is something more to this than just three people walking nonchalantly down Eden Quay. Whether with prisoner(s) in tow or not, our resident law-enforcement expert tells is that this peeler (collar number C22) was likely attached to Store Steet station. And likely on his way back there.... Photographers: J. J. Clarke Collection: Clarke Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1897-1904?

Lawn, Castlebar, Co. Mayo
Description: A lawn with a DesRes in Castlebar would always be a most attractive proposition and this fine house is no exception! I seem to remember a previous shot from Castlebar with an open area/square in the town with that name? Sharon.corbet and B-59 were quick to confirm that this house is now part of St. Joseph's Secondary School. Prior to that, according to dearbhaile2 and guliolopez, it was associated with the Lords Lucan (yes, those Lords Lucan). And finally, while we had almost diluted our tea with tears of lament for the loss of the OSI historic maps website, Niall McAuley has offered a replacement - which has helped us map this image accurately.

As we try to oblige our viewers where possible this is in response to a request by "Jack the Stroller" so here goes! Despite our feeling that this might difficult and "changed utterly", the StreetView found by BeachcomberAustralia and corroberated by sharon.corbet is somewhat recognisable. At least for the spires and larger buildings in the distance. Which match up accurately. The view from the bridge over the Royal Canal remains similar (if you overlook all the cars, car showrooms and car garages that is) :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Tynan Abbey, Co. Armagh
Description: This fine looking building in County Armagh will start our week. It would not look out of place in any of our near British or European neighbours. Does it still stand or has it fallen victim to time and 'progress'? Regrettably, based on today's inputs (including from Fred Dean Snr who points us to the building's Wikipedia entry) we have added this image to our "no longer standing" album. Long associated with the Stronge family, the building was the site of terrible events during the Troubles - in which the then elderly 8th Baronet and his son were killed. The building we see here was burned down in the same event, and demolished the following decade. Only the arch of the frontdoor remains.....

One man and his gun
Description: One with very few clues today to end the week and what looks like an early Stereo Pairs shot. A man on his own standing on a stone jetty with a heavy cannon gun beside him. In the background is a conical bare hill/mountain. What I would really like to know today is what was the gun called? Based in no small part on inputs (and a corroberating photo) from mcginley2012 it is confirmed that this cannon is on the lake shore of Ballynahinch Lake in County Galway. Apparently "found" in the lake it was perhaps placed here as part of the demesne for Ballynahinch Castle (now a hotel).....

William Robert Caldbeck RIP
Description: Nothing as exciting or as lively as Dad and Sean Lemass in this shot from Mr. Poole. A gravestone of William Robert Caldbeck who died in early middle age in a well kept grave somewhere. Who was William and where was he buried? With thanks to sharon.corbet, mcginley2012, and Niall McAuley we have answers to the key questions here. On the "where", it is confirmed that William Robert Caldbeck's gravestone is in Guilcagh Cemetery, about 2 miles south of Portlaw. On the "who", William himself was postmaster and shopkeeper in Portlaw, County Waterford, and was clearly much loved by his friends in the area - as they erected a fountain in his memory and which still stands in the town. On the "when", as the grave and gravestone look especially fresh, it seems likely that this dates from quite early in the proposed catalogue range.... Photographer: A. H.

Bringing light into darkness
Description: Standing proud and distinctive on Wicklow Head the lighthouse was an essential beacon for the many ships sailing along the Irish Sea. Our great hope is that we can get a little more information on it than we did on the Emmetts Cricket Club from Skerries? With thanks in particular to sharon.corbet, Niall McAuley and BeachcomberAustralia we learned that there are actually a number of lighthouses on Wicklow Head. This quick flyover video shows their relative positions. One of the earliest examples, the "Rear Lighthouse" is "behind" the photographer here, further inland, and was built in 1781 and is now a holiday rental operated the the Irish Landmark Trust. The most recent, somewhat over the "hump" we see here and closer to the water, was built in the 19th century and is still active and operated by the Commissioners of Irish Lights. The one pictured here, effectively between the other two, dates from the 18th century, but is apparently seen here after some 19th century developments. The "outbuildings" are no longer standing - though the tower itself remains....

On the beach
Description: A scene from a beach, apparently in Achill, where the locals are gathered with tins, buckets, boats and nets. What is really unusual and demands some explanation is the man inspecting the nets while holding a gun? (Incidentally this is the first time I can recall uploading an "Imperial" sized image to this stream. I shall have to study it carefully to see the difference such a significant size will make.) We are on Dooagh Beach, thanks Niall McAuley I think we can understand that the peopel we see had a hard existence, it is nice to see some of them playfully pose for the camera. BeachcomberAustralia provides a piece from the magnificent Trove website curated by our friends from The National Library of Australia where we see Michael Davitt pleading for the building of Piers and Harbours for the fishermen in the area, Davitt argues that at little expense the construction would save uncounted lives and increase fishing productivity.

Out standing in his own field?
Description: We don't often get the chance to admire the Stereo Pairs Collection so it is great to be able to do so! This noble statue of a man on a plinth complete with a globe in a very fine setting should provoke some interest? Who was it? Where was it and does it still stand? Compliments of sharon.corbet we learn that this is William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse KP PRS HFRSE (17 June 1800 – 31 October 1867) was an Anglo-Irish astronomer who had several telescopes built. His 72-inch telescope, built in 1845 and colloquially known as the "Leviathan of Parsonstown", was the world's largest telescope, in terms of aperture size, until the early 20th century. From 1807 until 1841, he was styled as Lord Oxmantown and from 1841 as Baron Oxmantown.

Fire of the Makalös (Matchless) Palace, Stockholm, Uppland, Sweden
Description: The "Makalös" ("Peerless") Palace, built in 1635-1643 for the noble family De la Gardie, in Kungsträdgården (King's Garden) park in central Stockholm. The palace was in the 18th century used as arsenal, and from the 1790s as location for the Royal Dramatic Theatre. It was destroyed by a fire in 1825, during a theatre performance. To the left in the image is Jakob's church. Chalcography by Georg Christoph Kilian, probably from the first half of the 18th century. Paltset "Makalös", byggt 1635-1643 för adelsfamiljen De la Gardie, i Kungsträdgården i Stockholm. Palatset användes under 1700-talet som arsenal och från 1790-talet som lokal för Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern. Det förstördes i en brand 1825, under en teaterföreställning.

Main Street (Society Street), Ballinasloe, Co. Galway
Description: An Eason image of Main Street, Ballinasloe in Co. Galway on a quiet day. Lots of pedestrians about but no traffic so one would suspect that it was a Sunday?

Valbret's grave, Tanum, Bohuslän, Sweden
Description: Grave field with stone circle and cist grave in Tanum on the Swedish west coast. The grave is called "Valbret's grave". According to the myth, Valbret (Wallbrett) was a Scottish chieftain who was killed by the people in Tanum about 1,000 years ago. The grave, however, is from the Stone Age, and rather about 4,000 years old. Watercolour by Olof Hermelin, from the later part of the 19th century. Gravfält med domarring och hällkista i Tanum på västkusten. Graven kallas "Valbrets grav". Enligt myten var Valbrett (Walbrett) en skotsk hövdig som dödades av Tanumsborna för cirka 1000 år sedan. Graven är emellertid från stenåldern, och snarare cirka 4000 år gammal. Akvarell av Olof Hermelin, från senare delen av 1800-talet.

Somewhere in the West
Description: I know this scene, it is like the Delphi Fishery but I do not think it is, T. C. Kingsmill Moore, would know precisely. It is definitely associated with a fishery in the West of Ireland. We have the scotch pines, all the fisheries in Connemara seem to have them, I wonder why? sharon.corbet won the race to identify the location for this photo, we are at Glendollagh House looking at Lissoughter Mountain or ‘Cnoc Lios Uachtair’ as it’s known in Irish, meaning ‘hill of the upper ring-fort’ it is situated between Lough Inagh and Recess. The Lake is known as Garroman or Glendollagh Lough.

Mud, boats and quays - the Barrow at New Ross.
Description: From the Liffey in Dublin yesterday, to the Barrow in New Ross today. And, from the elegant Elinor Wiltshire, to the burly Robert French. The quays are impressive but empty - which is rather surprising given the time when this image was captured! If memory serves me right, a boat not dissimilar to those seen in the Wiltshire shot sank with loss of life around the same time as the Wiltshire shot was taken. And right up against those quays!

Tams and a Fez perambulating with a perambulator! (Rhyl in Wales)
Description: To end the week we have yet another example of a Clarke street shot. This kind of candid photograph is much practiced and has many followers. Given the equipment Clarke had available at the time however, these are especially fine examples! That young buck sitting on the side of the pram looks like he he is being held back or he would run wild! Where was it taken and when? Perhaps La Belle Province can help identify the headgear and help with the date? While others did help us with details of headgear (including the toddler's Fez and the ladies' Tam Caps), it was Frank_C who provided the most coveted of inputs - on location. In short, Frank's suggestion (seconded by others) is that this is the Parade in Rhyl, North Wales. And it is still quite recognisable today..... Photographers: J. J.

Dead Slow or I Fire!!
Description: Here we are back in Cork again, on "the Banks", looking at the Lower Glanmire Road from the Marina. I think it will be a challenge to get a good date, though perhaps the buildings on the North side will help? I also look forward to hearing all the details of the uniform worn by the would be artillery man.... Based on inputs in particular from guliolopez, ofarrl and Niall McAuley we learned quite a lot about the subjects here. While we initially thought that the cannon pictured was the "time gun" (used by Cork's port authorities to signal 10am daily), this was actually slightly further upstream. What we have here therefore is a non-firing trophy gun. This one was captured during the 1855 Siege of Sevastapol. It seems (conincidentally, or just for the fun of the photo) to have a member of a Royal artillery unit standing alongside it. As with much of the other (non human) subjects in this image, the cannon remains in place. As do most of the buildings and structures beyond - though the Marine Radio School at Carrig House is apparently significantly worse for wear....

Mmmmm
Description: In recent years I have seen church buildings converted to many other uses, warehouses, restaurants, public houses and even private residences. However I doubt that when this photograph was taken that this was an hotel in Gorey, County Wexford. Domhnallcos was very quick off the mark, identifying this as the Catholic Church of Saint Michael the Archangel in Gorey. Another one for the "catalogue correction" list......

Metropole Hotel, Cork
Description: This Wednesday we take a trip south to the City of Cork. Have you ever wondered what the word Metropole actually means? We have seen hotels in Dublin and now Cork using it. Well wonder no more I have found that "The Metropole" is the British metropolitan center of the British Empire; i.e., the United Kingdom itself. It is sometimes used even more specifically to refer to London as the metropole of the British Empire. Wikipedia Our friend guliolopez (who always seems to miss the Cork related photos) will know the answer to the following question, are the Musgrave Brothers we see here the same Musgraves which established Centra and Supervalu the biggest retail operators in Ireland?

An hotel, omnibus, loiterers and ... a chicken!
Description: This delightful shot of an hotel in Westport, County Mayo is a great way to begin a week that promises to be a scorcher here in Ireland. The trees are offering plenty of shade for those who sit and await the departure of the omnibus to ...where? There is a lot of detail in the shot, not least the registration number of the 'bus together with the dress of the people standing about and the piles of leaves should help with the time of year if not the date? Sometimes it seems that we could have a stand-alone album for our many 'charabanc' images. Or even for this particular 'bus, registration number IM 180, which has been confirmed to be in the service of the Midland Great Western Railway. Other inputs from Niall McAuley, sharon.corbet, sissonni, and Beachcomber help us refine the 50 year catalogue range to less than 5 years in the early 1910s. In this period, the nature of road traffic started to change. And, while it was the 'airbrush' rather than the internal-combustion engine that removed all the manure from a postcard variant of this image, the same cannot be said for the modern StreetView....

Castle on the hay covered hill
Description: This beautifully restored(?) castle set in a field of early cut hay is this offering from the Stereo Pairs Collection. When you think how old these images are the quality and clarity is just remarkable. Where is it and what does it look like now? With thanks to sharon.corbet we got answers to both of these questions. The first answer (where?) is that this is Kilwaughter Castle, an early 19th century mansion close to Larne, County Antrim. The second answer (look like now?) is that it doesn't look so great. Seized during WWII, it fell into ruin from the 1950s onwards, and barely a shell remains. There does however seem to be a campaign to see it restored....

Charabanc at the Lake Hotel
Description: This delightful shot shows a "Charabanc" or "Omnibus" loading up with happy trippers outside the Lake Hotel in Inchigeela, County Cork. The image is full of detail including hats, horses, people - but any dogs? As evidenced by the modern Flickr view highlighted by BeachcomberAustralia, and the modern StreetView shared by Niall McAuley, while the traffic in Inchigeela has changed, the businesses on view have not changed too much. Indeed, even the signage (for the Cyclist's Touring Club on the guest house, and Murphy's sign on the public house) has similar equivalents today. It is these original/older signs which help date the image - to perhaps the late 1890s or 1900s....

NOT a
Description: While this is NOT the exterior of a Gothic revival/restoration stone church it just may be the interior of just such a church. This appears to be one of a number of images of the same church in the archive. This one shows a beautifully clean, tidy and empty church all ready for Sunday service but where is it? There was mighty craic with the image last Friday and may I apologise to all our Cork brethren for suggesting that their beautiful city is naught but a "hamlet" :-) And today's image is from no small hamlet either - but Down Cathedral in Downpatrick.

Description: A visit to the Stereo Pairs Collection today and to a country church(?) with "square tower of rubble masonry". The shot has been reduced to a single image for ease of viewing on Flickr. In the past we have been able to identify places and times by the tombstones but I am not sure the detail is there on this one. While we'd originally titled this with a line from Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, ("The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep"), Niall McAuley schooled us that, technically, a hamlet (almost by definition) is a settlement that doesn't have a church. Shortly afterwards, based on cues and clues that hinted at a Cork based location, and in particular a similarly titled reverse view, sissonni established this as the "old" St Finbarre's Cathedral in Cork. As it was demolished and replaced, by William Burges, from 1865, we know that this image must have been captured before then....

Callow Hill, Roundwood, Co. Wicklow
Description: Having assumed that yesterday's "location unknown" image would keep everyone busy for a few days (how wrong I was), I hadn't really prepared anything for today. And hence have not taken the time to investigate the background to today's offering. Presumably however the "Vartry" reference in the image connects it with the Vartry reservoir and water works of the mid-19th century.... Based on extensive inputs from abandoned railways, sharon.corbet, BeachcomberAustralia, O Mac and in particular Niall McAuley we learned a lot about both the inanimate and human subjects of this shot. Put simply, based on the OSI maps, similar catalogue images, census records and related publications, this tank is indeed part of the Vartry reservoir and works. Not only that, but it is 99% certain that the people pictured are Murtagh Geoghegan, Mary Geoghegan and one of their sons (Thomas, Patrick or John). This family lived at the nearby and aptly named "Tank House", with Murtagh acting as caretaker of this part of the water works. While John Gray was commemorated with a statue on O'Connell Street for his efforts in bringing fresh water and improved conditions to Dublin's citizens, we're delighted to acknowledge the contribution of the Geoghegan family ourselves today :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Railway Station House, Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow
Description: Back when railway stations were designed with a sense of style and purpose, this confection was landed in Bagenalstown in County Carlow. The symmetrical design was to cater for the vast flow of passengers in and out - though they had departed by the time this shot was taken. However, careful examination will show that a couple of special passengers are making their way to the right hand entrance and near the left there is a d..... We learned that this station, together with several other "picturesque gothic" stations in Ireland, was designed by English architect Sancton Wood. Though closed for a period in the late 20th century, Muine Bheag (Bagenalstown) station is since reopened and is a "halt" on the Dublin to Waterford line...

This monument, dedicated to 1798 leader Bartholomew Teeling commemorates actions at the Battle of Collooney.

Description: From the delights of Woodstown in Waterford and wasp waisted women to ancient artifacts and abodes in Sligo! This fine celtic cross appears to have been beautifully decorated, and is positioned with a tower in the background. Some great vertical lines in the shot. Is it still standing and in that location? Even though this image may have been mirrored in the scanning/digitising process, BeachcomberAustralia and Rory_Sherlock quickly and concurrently identified this as Drumcliffe, County Sligo.
