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.

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 Horse that didn't run...
Description: Another Tynan shot of the "Queen and Exiles" festival in Glenties, Co. Donegal but did we ever find out what that festival was all about?

Song of the lonely boatman
Description: This lovely scene vies with yesterdays visit to Claudy in County Derry for sheer beauty! The wee boat on the rocks looks lonesome while its colleague appears to be under full sail in the background. 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"???

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.

Maynooth Mystery

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).

What a spectacle?  A spectacle bridge.
Description: This magnificent shot of a magnificent bridge in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare was taken by Mr. French for the Lawrence Collection. The unusual structure fills that great height to perfection, and must have delighted the engineer who designed and constructed it?

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.

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.

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?

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. We don't have the who/where/when trifecta however - as we're none-the-wiser as to who the central figures are here....

The Wheatly Tomb, St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin
Description: To one of my favourite places in Dublin now, and one of those magnificent monuments to commemorate the great and the good. 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.

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?

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.

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....

Bringing home the turf
Description: What appears picturesque today was a reality not that long ago for many people in remote areas of Ireland. Neddy the donkey was the chief source of power for transport. The creels on the back of the donkey would indicate terrain that was too rough for a cart or that the family were to poor to afford the cart. Times change? Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia for the (generally favoured) suggestion that we are in County Antrim, not too far from a relatively recent image of what appears to be some of the same people....

Ladies in crinolines with parasol in stereo - twice as nice!
Description: This crisp, clear and beautiful image from the Stereo Pairs Collection shows a very attractive building with two ladies in crinolines standing outside. The building itself is quite distinctive which should make it easy to identify? Unfortunately I don't see any dogs :-( The general consensus is that this is St. Anne’s Hydro and Turkish Bath in Blarney, County Cork. Which, according to Archiseek at least, dates to 1870, and narrows our range a bit. The building, including the clock we see here, is just about still standing....

Description: The title on today's image from the Clonbrock Collection could be a really difficult clue from a cryptic crossword! "Wellington from F's room. Fishing" could easily be 12 down or perhaps 3 across? It is a photograph this time whereas most Clonbrock images up to now have been glass plates so after 70 million views we can begin with something different! There general consensus is that "Wellington" is Wellington College in Berkshire, and that the "F" who has a room here is perhaps Francis Marcus Crofton - grandson of Edith Dillon..... Thank you all for the fantastic support that enabled the NLI images to garner such an incredible level of viewing as well as the wonderful research and identification that has gone on.

Masons galore and not a brickie in sight!
Description: This fine group of the Free Mason group taken by Mr. Poole shows them in their regalia and probably in their rankings also?

Prison Blues
Description: This Mason slide could not be further removed from yesterday's one. We've gone back decades, and find ourselves in the central hall of Kilmainham Gaol/Jail in Dublin. It looks relatively spruce and freshly painted. And those bundles are allegedly piles of clothes, according to our catalogue...

Mansion, Gorey, Co. Wexford
Description: The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this photo was what makes a house a mansion? Wikipedia provides the following definition: "A mansion is a large dwelling house. The word itself derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio "dwelling", an abstract noun derived from the verb manere "to dwell". The English word manse originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way (compare a Roman or medieval villa)". What can you tell us about this particular mansion? The general consensus (prompted initially by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet]) is that this is a view of Courtown House near Gorey, County Wexford. Demolished in the mid-20th century, this ex-mansion is now another entry in our "no longer standing" album.....

Possibly a general view of Malahide, Co. Dublin
Description: There seems to be a hole in the road and there seems to be at lease four men looking into it, so not much has changed in Ireland over the last 100 years! Our catalogue directs us to the suburban town of Malahide which is to the North of Dublin, is the catalogue correct? In short: It is :) :D Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely in first decade or two of range. Perhaps c.1910s.

Third Lock, River Lagan, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From Apostles of Temperance in Cork to locks on the Lagan near Belfast for todays image. The Eason collection has some interesting and educational images, and for me this was an eye-opener - as I never knew that the Lagan was managed and made navigable above the tide mark! When did all this take place and is it still in use? With thanks to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and the Wikipedia article on the 'Lagan Navigation', I am further educated on this section of waterway. Seemingly it opened in the mid-18th century, and was viable until the mid-20th century. Closed in the 1950s, it seems that at least part of the lock system (and these lock keepers cottages) have been restored and given new life since. I wonder what the man pictured would have made of it all....

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!

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!

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.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Possibly after 1903 (pavillion).

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'....

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".
