Statue of Sir B.L. Guinness, St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin
Description: A statue of a man in tights should get us off to a good start today? I have seen this statue of Sir B L Guinness many times but never paid much heed to. It will be nice to research him and see what his claim to fame may have been. While acknowledging that there is much more to him, oaktree_brian_1976 offers a summary of "the beer dude" :) As per the detail provided by B-59, BultacoFan, beachcomber, and Niall McAuley we learn that Benjamin Guinness (1798–1868) was a brewer and philanthropist, and that he contributed to the restoration (reconstruction?) of the cathedral where this status stands. The sculptor was John Hogan (1800–1858), whose works we have come across quite a few times before....

Miss Joan Musgrave, elder, on horse, hair stripe in coat
Description: Miss Musgrave on her horse from the Poole collection. The well manicured lawn and gravel drive denote a "Big" house and privilege. Any bets on the name of the horse? Our researchers traced this lady and discovered that she changed from Miss Musgrave to Mrs Joan Jameson (1892–1953). (The Jameson's of course of the noted whiskey distillers of Dublin.) She was an accomplished artist and exhibited many times in Dublin and London. Thank you all for your contributions and help! Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range 1901-1954. Likely in the middle of this range (given label (subject married in 1920) and age (possibly late teens or 20s here).

The Apprentice Boys Memorial aka
Description: Today we move from the far south of Waterford to the far north of Derry and a memorial to the Apprentice Boys there. A surprisingly modest memorial to such an historically important group. This shot from Derry/Londonderry didn't arouse a lot of interest today, but it appears that the memorial is not so much to the Apprentice Boys themselves as it is to the unknown people interred in a mass grave near St. Columbs Cathedral following the siege. Swordscookie found an account of where the bones of those interred were being taken to be dumped into land reclamation at the river and local people objected. The remains were then taken back to the cathedral and interred in the "Heroes Mound" The correct title for this image might rightly be "The Heroes Mound Memorial"?

Curraghmore, Portlaw, Co. Waterford
Description: We may have moved to the Lawrence Collection today but we remain firmly in Poole territory of Waterford. This magnificent pile may not have survived the "Troubles" but if it has it would make a most interesting place to visit. This proved to be a red herring as though the catalogue entry was labelled "Annaghmore", this proved to be "Curraghmore House" - the home of the Marquis of Waterford, and a place we have visited here many times in the past. Thank you one and all for your help in clearing up the confusion! What is particularly pleasing about this is that the old pile did indeed survive the "Troubles" intact!

Beverley Gas Works, Old Hull Road 1910 (archive ref DDX1544-1-11)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) This photograph shows a young lad with horses and cart stood outside the entrance to the Beverley Gas Works circa 1910. In 1824, a resolution was passed that the only practical solution for improving the standard of street lighting, was the introduction of a new light – Gas Lighting. Gas Light was introduced later that year in Beverley by an engineer/entrepreneur called John Malam who decided to build a gasworks, negotiating a contract for the lighting of 150 street lamps with the Commissioners. The imposing gateway to the gasworks, as seen in the image, was built in close proximity to Beverley Beck. The gateway still remains today, but has been reincorporated into new housing premises called Mill View Court.

Pupils of Beverley Minster Girls School outside Admiral Walker Hall, c.1902 (archive ref DDX1544-1-6)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) Pupils of Beverley Minster Girls School pose outside Admiral Walker Hall, Lairgate, around 1902. This image depicts pupils celebrating Empire Day. A few of the girls are wearing sashes around their bodies for England, Scotland, Ireland, Singapore and Jamaica, in reference to the British Empire. The grand Georgian residence in the photograph belonged to Admiral Walker (1836-1925). Making his wealth from trade, he became firmly established as a member of the landed gentry in Beverley, but was also a generous benefactor of the town. Having served in the navy in the Crimean War, successive promotions led to his final rank in 1868 of Rear Admiral.

Description: The somewhat long catalogue label for this image is "Bridge of three arches over river in foreground, street with terraces of chequered front houses in middle ground". While I must admit this seems desperately familiar (and fighting a feeling of déjà vu that we have visited this bridge before), today's "location unknown" image comes from the Stereo Pair collection. Are we losing it? Have we been here before? Where is "here"...? With thanks to Mike Grimes, B-59, beachcomber, and O Mac, the location was quickly confirmed as Bann Bridge in Portadown. Captured possibly on a busy market day. The bridge was extensively rebuilt 50 or so years after this 1870s(?) image - many of the distinctive terraced houses on the right do not survive.

The photographers den?
Description: We are in Waterford again today the home city of Mr A.H. Poole. I wonder if this is the studio where all of our fantastic Poole portraits were taken or is it just an outlet for the products we can see in the window? Today's discussion focused on what may have prompted Poole to capture this shot of his premises on the Quay in Waterford, immediately adjacent to the historic Reginald's Tower. Possibly it had recently been renovated - an "after" shot to compare to the "before" also in the catalogue. In any event, while we've focused in the past on Poole's photographic studio at 34 The MalI, we hadn't really paid much attention to his shop/outlet - which lay just around the corner at 134 the Quay. As our contributors point-out, some of the Poole images we've shared over the years were taken from the upper windows of both these premises... Photographer: A. H.

Something Fishy
Description: An unusual Poole photo for you today. Our catalogue states that this is the Duke of Devonshire fishing, I presume he is fishing on the Munster Blackwater, unless of course you know something different.... While perhaps still none-the-wiser on the embellishments to today's image, today's contributors (and especially [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] & [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]]) have confirmed that this image was likely taken between 1901 and 1908. When Spencer Cavendish was 8th Duke of Devonshire. The consensus is that the image was taken on the Munster Blackwater - if not close to the family's seat at Lismore, then perhaps slightly downstream.... Photographer: A. H.

Broadgate, East Riding Asylum 1905 (archive ref PH-1-66)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) The former East Riding Lunatic Asylum opened in Walkington in 1871 with 100 patients transferred from the North Riding Asylum at York. Standing in its own grounds close to the road from Beverley to Walkington, it boasted magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, which could be seen from the hospital windows. In 1949 it was renamed Broadgate Mental Hospital. During its lifetime, it underwent many changes and at one time it was known as one of the most progressive hospitals of its kind. ‘Broadgates’ closed in 1989 and was later demolished to make way for a new housing development (Why not try searching our East Riding of Yorkshire Map for more historic images? www.flickr.com/photos/erarchives/map ) (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of Creative Commons.

Hill Street, Hounds
Description: It is a while since we had two consecutive Eason photos, today we are in Hill Street, Newry, County Down. Such a lot going on and some nice motors to be identified. Today's contributions focused on two key business premises on Hill Street - specifically the Shelbourne Bakery which had been in business a quarter century even by the time of this shot, and the Ulster Bank opposite. Investigations on the motor vehicles pictured helped narrow the almost 40 year range to perhaps a decade or so after 1928/29....

Main Street, Midleton, Co. Cork
Description: A new week and we start off with a photo from the lovely town of Midleton. I think something looks staged in this one, what do you think? With thanks in particular today to the contributions of Niall McAuley, derangedlemur, Carol Maddock, and guliolopez it is confirmed that the motor car pictured (IF789) was registered from c.1914 to John Joseph Walshe, who was bank manager of the Munster & Leinster Bank branch which dominates the right of the image. The 1911 census lists the Walshe household as including JJ Walshe, his wife Cicily (Nano) Walshe, and servants John Lynch and Janie Goggin. As they seem to be well aware of the shot being taken, it seems plausible that there may have been an association with the photographer (supporting our theory that this isn't quite a candid shot). And seems equally likely that at least some of those listed in this census are pictured at the open door of the bank, and almost certainly in the car itself (where intriguingly we note that the man in chauffeur garb is sitting in the back seat!) Thanks also to beachcomberaustralia for info on the likely car model and on the corner of "Goose's Acre" in the immediate foreground....

Earl Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath

Here we have not only a goodly, straight and clean street but the denizens thereof watching the artist as he takes their image for posterity. Looking at the lady with the donkey and cart dressed in a shawl and bowler hat it strikes me how closely that dress resembles the dress of the women in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador in the high Andes. Can anybody see the man with one leg? Thanks to all of today's contributors - including to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] who draw our attention to the street names.

The Square, Fermoy, Co. Cork
Description: Another angle on the Square, Fermoy with our backs to the River Blackwater. We have seen this square before but usually looking out across the bridge. It is surprising to see how dominated the town is by the convent and church buildings on the heights. With thanks to today's contributors, though we've visited the square before, we learned a little more about the history of the Loreto Convent in the background, and the businesses on Queen's Square in the foreground. Appreciation is due in particular to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] for his investigations that allow us to narrow the 50 year catalogue range (1860s-1910s) to a decade or so (1880s-1890s)...

Post Office, Carnlough, Co. Antrim
Description: A familiar bridge but a different focus. We have seen this bridge before from the other side. But today, the focus is on the Post Office at Carnlough in Co. Antrim. The scene really has a charm all its own! With thanks to today's contributors, there's a suggestion that this image may date from the latter half of the catalogue range - possibly early 20th rather than late 19th century. If so, those pictured at the Post Office door may be members of the McSparron family, who were running it at the time of the 1901 and later 1911 census....

Description: ...I know, I know. Someone in Library Towers was on the sauce last evening but it wasn't me :) Clearly this image is of the cathedral on the Rock of Cashel. How its label was transmogrified to become "Crawford's Burn Bridge and Waterfall" is a mystery. Then again the devil's race against Fionn MacCumhaill did begin up near the Burn and ended near Cashel(?) Thanks to Rory_Sherlock and sharon.corbet for highlighting the vault repairs that were clearly undertaken in the 100+ years between our Lawrence shot, and this photosphere view from 2014.

And a handsome family they are too.

Bird's Eye View, Lurgan, Co. Armagh
Description: Before the days of helicopters and drones a church steeple or high hill provided a "birds eye view" as in this shot. Lurgan appears a well developed town with industry and institutions aplenty back when this shot was taken. Thanks to today's contributions we know that the photographer captured this from a high vantage point on Lurgan's Shankill Parish Church (COI), looking north - along the aptly named North Street - towards St Peter's Church (Cath). We have yet to refine the date significantly, but it's obviously before the removal of the gas holders off Ulster Street....

The Square, Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow
Description: A fine shot today from the Eason Collection with old forms of transport occupying a broad square but with perhaps a crowd(?) in the distance. The catalogue date range puts this in the first quarter of the 20th century, and the information that Niall McAuley provides for the visible Michael Dwyer memorial corroborates that. Thanks to beachcomberaustralia for sharing some extra detail on Michael Dwyer himself. We're not sure what has drawn the small crowd in the background by Chapel Hill, but the collection of carts suggests a mart on the east-side of Market Square...

Quinsboro Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow
Description: Today we have "Tea on Tuesday" shot from the efforts of the remarkable Mr. French. The "Canton Tea Rooms" must have seemed very exotic in the early years of the last century as visitors to Bray sought some refreshments. With thanks to all for today's contributions, we have confirmation of the precise location (Quinsboro Rd, Bray), time of day (approaching 4pm), a refined date range (perhaps 1905 +/- a few years), and additional information on the shops and shopkeepers pictured. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/turgidson] points out, and as the modern aerial and Streetviews attest, it is interesting to note that the gardens of Westbourne Terrace on the left are now all home to single-storey retail frontages, with the older buildings remaining to the rear....

Theatre Royal, Hawkins Street, Dublin
Description: For many years an iconic building in the heart of Dublin it was torn down much to the dismay of many Dubliners and theatre goers! The streetview of this won't be pretty! I have always felt that I missed out on something important in never having attended the Theater Royal. Alas, it had been demolished a few years after I was born. I remember well my parents and grandparents speaking fondly of many excellent shows they had seen there. I am convinced by the research, particularly from Niall McAuley that this photo was taken sometime between 1910 to July 1912 and I have updated the date range accordingly.

On Devenish Island Lower Lough Erne, Co. Fermanagh
Description: This crisp image of ancient ruins on Devenish Island in Co. Fermanagh for Tower Thursday! That gable looked in good condition then, what does it look like now? From Wikipedia: Devenish or Devinish (from Irish: Daimhinis, meaning "ox island") is an island in Lower Lough Erne, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Aligned roughly north–south, it is about one and a quarter miles long and two-thirds of a mile wide. The main place to catch a ferry to the island is at Trory Point, just outside Enniskillen. Devenish Island is owned by the Kilravock Christian Trust. Devenish contains one of the finest monastic sites in Northern Ireland. A round tower thought to date from the 12th century is situated on the island, as are the walls of the Oratory of Saint Molaise who established the monastery in the 6th century, on a pilgrim route to Croagh Patrick in County Mayo. It became a centre of scholarship and although raided by Vikings in 837 and burned in 1157, it later flourished as the site of the parish church and St Mary's Augustinian Priory.

Distillery, Bushmills, Co. Antrim
Description: A simple description for an old image of one of the Irelands and the worlds most famous distilleries! Bushmills! The name speaks for itself! What a nice photograph to warm the heart on this very cold Spring day. From Wikipedia: The Old Bushmills Distillery is a distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. As of December 2014, it was in the process of transitioning from ownership by Diageo plc to Jose Cuervo. All of the whiskey bottled under the Bushmills whiskey brand is produced at the Bushmills Distillery and uses water drawn from Saint Columb's Rill, which is a tributary of the River Bush. The distillery is a popular tourist attraction, with around 120,000 visitors per year. The company that originally built the distillery was formed in 1784, although the date 1608 is printed on the label of the brand – referring to an earlier date when a royal licence was granted to a local landowner to distil whiskey in the area. After various periods of closure in its subsequent history, the distillery has been in continuous operation since it was rebuilt after a fire in 1885.

Description: We are with Fergus O'Connor today. I find this a most fascinating photograph. Can you please tell me two things, firstly I would like to know the location and secondly I would like to know what exactly is going on in the right foreground? With thanks for today's contributions, it's established that this is the Upper Lake at Killarney. As to what's happening in the right foreground (the photo-bombed "arrest" by a truncheon wielding lawman), we've heard several theories. But nothing to explain the odd dichotomy of serene landscape and (possibly staged) action/commotion. Perhaps it will always remain a mystery - as perhaps was intended....

Badly in need of a landscaper!
Description: This fine old building looks neglected and abandoned all those years ago, is it even there now? And the short answer is: yes - it's Assembly's College (now part of Queens University Belfast) The longer answer, with particular thanks to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], and additional contributions from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] is that this image may have been taken relatively early in the 1860-1883 catalogue range. Possibly as part of a series which captured a number of buildings by Charles Lanyon around Belfast. Some of which we've visited recently. Some solid arguments for date and impetus behind the likely commission in the comments below...

Two-storey classical style modern building - is Crumlin Road Courthouse in Belfast
Description: This splendid building can hardly be a Railway Station? We thought it must surely be a municipal building like a parliament, senate office or even art gallery... ... and with thanks to Niall McAuley, Greg Carey, and robinparkes who almost consecutively identifed this as Crumlin Road Courthouse in Belfast. O Mac notes that archtectural elements from our 19th century image differ from how it looks now. And unfortunately, per the drone flyby video that beachcomberaustralia shares, fires at the empty and undeveloped site have in recent decades have left the building a (literal) shell of its former self...

New Walk originally had a variety of trees, planted in irregular formation – the line of chestnut trees are said to have been first planted in 1823. The Sessions House in New Walk was built from 1804 to 1810 and had a prison at the rear along Norfolk Street. There were 126 cells by 1835, but by the 1870s they housed an average of only 60 prisoners at any one time. The prison was closed in 1878 and the prisoners moved to West Riding jails. The prison cells and the warden’s house were turned into houses and a convent. The site now also houses the police station.

Description: While we have been to Queenstown/Cobh before this fine Lawrence shot of the West Beach has lots of interest. Those skifs and the people around add interest to the scene with occasional ghosts to liven things up! With the help of the businesses (and their advertising), our intrepid contributors have refined the near 50 year range of the catalogue dates to perhaps 5 to 10 years in the early 20th century. The Emerson's Bromo Selzter advert on front of O'Sullivan's chemists was likely put in place around the same time (if a lot less longstanding) as the 1911 Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower in the company's home state of Maryland....

Keldgate, East End from South East, c.1900 (archive ref PO-1-14-282
Description: (Buy exclusive prints of this image from East Riding Photos) Keldgate, East End from south-east, 1900 Could these people be on their way to Sunday service at Beverley Minster in 1900? Keldgate, the street pictured here, was recorded as early as 1250 and is one of Beverley’s most famous and historic streets, which had one of the notable Bars at the western end of it. In 1905, the Minster’s old high wall, seen here in the background, was demolished and replaced by a low wall using the original copings and bricks nearer to the church to enable a footpath to be constructed. The demolition was carried out by a local firm of builders, Thomas Stephenson & Sons, based in Minster Moorgate. The photograph was taken sometime before 1905, as the high wall is still intact around the Minster, which dates it to early 1900.
