Gap of Dunloe, Mrs. Moriarty's, Killarney, Co. Kerry
Description: This fine shot of a cottage in the Gap of Dunloe for a frosty Tuesday morning. Riding up the Gap from here on a day like today would take away any cobwebs away and concentrate the mind. Robert French really could capture the atmosphere of a place and a time! As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] suggest, this particular Moriarty cottage seems to have been around here. The guys point to the strong similarity in the rock-formations to the rear - and we have no reason to doubt it. It seems there were perhaps several Moriarty households in the area - and indeed we've met more than one Moriarty on our previous visits to the area. This Mrs Moriarty clearly served a burgeoning tourst trade - in a tradition which seemingly continues today...

Dáil Chamber silent and empty
Description: Until the advent of television, sights such as this were relatively rare, the inside of the national parliament was considered almost sacrosanct. Now the activity there is streamed live, relevant clips appear daily on the news channels and people are familiar with the appearance and décor. As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] notes, the main parliament chamber at Leinster House was originally a lecture theatre leased from the Royal Dublin Society. It was bought outright for Dáil use, and redesigned in the mid-1920s (likely putting this image after that date)...

Mick McQuaid's Cabin, Connemara, Co. Galway
Description: Two poems immediately spring to mind when I look at this image but neither of them refers to Connemara. This beautiful scene may have cheered "Mick McQuaid" on a daily basis or perhaps due to the harshness of life in such a remote and poor area he did not even see it? I hope that he was able to sit with his pipe, smoking "Mick McQuaid" tobacco, contemplating the scene with a sense of peace and appreciation? And so we have learned from beachcomberaustralia and B-59 that the "Mick McQuaid" in question was fictional. Making this scene, as Niall McAuley suggests, something of a 19th century equivalent to the (nearby) "Quiet Man cottage". Mick McQuaid was a character developed by Captain William Lynam for a popular weekly serial - that was carried by newspapers for some decades from the 1860s. Seemingly, as per the summary which beachcomberaustralia shares in the comments, those who could not read would travel some distance to hear the latest installment. And such was the popularity of the character that, as well as inspiring tobacco branding, when Lynam died in 1894, the paper continued the serial - reaching new generations....

Close-up of doorway of large, cruciform, modern romanesque church (is Sligo Cathedral)
Description: A double image of a double door in a church somewhere in Ireland. Given the extreme age of the stereo pairs collection some of the images, such as this one, are remarkably clear and 'new' looking! Early collaboration from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] identified this as Sligo Cathedral. As the cathedral opened in 1874, it seems likely this image dates to the mid- or late-1870s at the earliest. As well as helping identify the subjects of the "high relief" work in the tympanum today's other eagle-eyed contributors point out that this image is actually mirrored from reality.... Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1883.

Mansion near Navan, Co Meath - is Boyne View House
Description: A mansion (that was perhaps converted into a convent?) near Navan in the lush plains of County Meath. It looks like a white house - on the day when the new occupant of "The White House" may be decided. Good luck to our friends in the USA and may you get a President who will be a source of unity and goodwill! In a near dictionary definition of "great minds think alike", guliolopez and sharon.corbet simultaneously identified (and Niall McAuley coorberated) that what we are looking at here is Boyne View House off Convent Road to the south of Navan. Built apparently around the 1820s, our interpid investigators have confirmed that the portico we see here was remodeled in recent decades - and the distinctive upper sunroom/orangery removed. We are delighted to hear however that the building itself still stands and seemingly retains much of its original form. The team further confirm that the Watkins family were in residence here for at least the first 2 or 3 decades of the 20th century, and may have been the householders when this Eason image was captured....

Mitchelstown Castle, Co. Cork
Description: To begin the week one day late here is a magnificent building in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. (As regards our last image, the dog's name was "Stop" - because every time he tried to run and play, his owner shouted "Stop!!") On today's (dog free) image, sharon.corbet highlighted that it should be added to our "No Longer Standing" album. It now has been - because this 19th century castle was burned down during the Irish Civil War. Myrtle26, DannyM8, beachcomber, and guliolopez help establish some extra context for events in and around the castle prior to its destruction. And O Mac confirms that the castle's very stones were reused in the building of the abbey at Mount Mellary....

Spire of Lloyd, Kells, Co. Meath
Description: Another contribution from the Eason Collection to end off the week. I have seen this spire / tower many times while driving but I have never had the opportunity to visit it. Is it a pure folly or was it intended for some more practical use? With thanks in particular to contributions from B-59 and beachcomber we have learned that the tower doesn't have a specific practical use - other than perhaps as a viewing tower. Though built to resemble a lighthouse (and seemingly the "only inland lighthouse in Ireland"), the dedication inscription on the tower suggests that it was intended as a family memorial when commissioned by the then Marquess Headfort/Earl Bective. The NIAH entry tells us that it was designed and completed by architect Henry Aaron Baker c.1791.....

Description: This is labelled as the "Durrow Viaduct, Stradbally, Co.Laois", and a very fine shot it is. One wonders if it is now disused or perhaps abandoned for some years? It may surprise that this is from the Eason Collection! With thanks to today's contributors (including B-59 and Rory_Sherlock) there is a consensus suggestion that our catalogue label is incorrect, and that perhaps this is actually Ballyvoyle Viaduct in County Waterford. The smaller arch (and cottage) on the lefthand-side does seem a good fit with this Waterford Museum image from c.1900. If it is the Ballyvoyle Viaduct, we (now) know that it was blown-up during the Civil War in August 1922, and replaced with a new structure in 1923. According to this synopsis from the Waterford & Suir Valley Railway website the line didn't reopen fully until 1924....

Description: We are off to the leafy suburbs of South Dublin today courtesy of the Eason collection. I am fully expecting that we can identify the location, the names of the 3 men, the make and model of the fancy motor car and finally the date on which this photo was taken! With usual aplomb (we're barely surprised any more), today's contributors established that this is almost certainly Grange Golf Club in Rathfarnham, most likely captured in the mid-1930s (probably after the new club house opened in 1935), and the car pictured possibly a mid-1930s Morris Motors automobile....

Description: The description on this image states that this is an "Outside Car" and goes on at length to describe the gates and pillars! But are they still there? Where are/were they? They certainly are very ornate and ostentatious. With thanks especially today to derangedlemur, we know that these imposing gates and gatelodge are at the start of the driveway to Muckross House in Killarney, County Kerry. The ironwork (attributed to Richard Perrott of Cork) and pillars and gatelodge (seemingly attributed to William Atkins also of Cork) date to 1860. They were probably built before the arrival of Queen Victoria at Muckross in 1861. And, as [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] suggests in his own enigmatic way, likely intended to impress her madge. The community points-out that you can get an "Outside car" from the same spot today - just outside the gates.

All eyes on the charabanc!
Description: For Friday we have a stereo-pairs image of a seafront with houses above a shingle beach, boats pulled up to the hard stand and a most peculiar charabanc with a large group of people on board! While there are people standing around none pay attention to the photographer as all eyes are on the horse drawn transport! What is surrounded by iron railings so close to the sea? This image was quickly identified as the waterfront (Havelock Place) in Warrenpoint, County Down. While there was no immediate confirmation on what the gated area may have been on the pier-front, we thought it could have simply been fencing around a building which is just out of shot.... .... And indeed [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] confirmed since that it was the frontage of "Harbour House" which seems to have stood until at least the first decades of the 20th century.

Hopefully everything is
Description: Here two small ships lie on the mud where the tide has gone out and to prevent the cargo and fittings from moving and tipping the vessel over it was necessary to have them "Ship Shape and Bristol Fashion"! The tide at Bristol rises and falls up to 14 metres and so a vessel that did not have its fittings and cargo tied down was in danger of tipping over and being swamped by the incoming tide! This is a long way from Bristol but where? Based on sterling investigations by derangedlemur (and independent corroboration by sharon.corbet and KiloSierraDelta) it is confirmed that this is Quoile Quay close to Downpatrick in Northern Ireland. This part of the Quoile River was clearly navigable and the storehouses on the quay indicate a reasonable amount of traffic and trade. While some other aspects of this scene have changed, the frontage of the storehouses seem to remain - incorporated into a modern residential development...

Mountain Stage, Glenbeigh, Co. Kerry
Description: One of those amazing Lawrence images of poverty, destitution and sheer misery that makes one cringe. Cringe for the people who had to live in such terrible conditions. Some of the worst we had seen were in Donegal but this is in the Kingdom of Kerry, and shows that hard times affected people all over the country. With input from today's contributors we have broadly mapped this image to near Drom in County Kerry. The consensus is that this French image was likely captured in the 1880s. Possibly even c.1887 when, as beachcomber points-out, there were some particularly notorious evictions of families from the Wynn Estate.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1860 - 1914. Though certainly before 1900. And likely c.1880s.

A Belfast scene!
Description: The full title/description for this shot was too long and confusing for use on a Monday morning so I summarised it slightly :) A Belfast scene with lots to view and plenty of life going on. It immediately brought to mind James Craigs poem about Belfast: "Red brick in the suburbs, white horse on the wall, Eyetalian marbles in the City Hall: O stranger from England, why stand so aghast? May the Lord in His mercy be kind to Belfast." While we had a notion of location, today's contributors have helped refine the 25 year date range to perhaps a decade or so between the mid-1870s and the upper catalogue range of the mid-1880s. One of the more interesting features here (described in the catalogue entry as "iron feature, possibly a fountain") is the Jaffe Memorial Fountain. Seemingly built by Belfast's only Jewish mayor, Otto Jaffe, the "memorial" in question was to Jaffe's own father - who funded Belfast’s first synagogue. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/vab2009] points out that, after 70 years in Belfast's botanic gardens, the fountain has since been moved back to this original location...

Union of Food Workers Lozovsky Club
Description: The Lozovsky referred to in this stamp is most likely Solomon Lozovsky, a prominent Bolshevik and, during the times he was expelled from the Bolshevik Party (in 1914 and 1918), a Mezhraionets (a Russian Social Democratic Party faction straddling the ideological territory between the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks). He was a long-time revolutionary and a high official in various capacities in the Soviet Union. His Soviet political credentials were serious – at various times Presidium member of the All-Union Central Council of Soviet Trade Unions, Supreme Soviet member, Deputy People's Commissar for foreign affairs (answering to Molotov), and head of the Soviet Information Bureau (Sovinformburo). He was also the chair of the department of International Relations at the Higher Party School and General Secretary of the Red International Labour Union (Profintern). A Union club being named in Solomon Lozovsky’s honor is in line with his extensive involvement with labor unions throughout much of his career. This stamp is a testament to the existence of libraries in Union social institutions in the Soviet Union. He was born in Ukraine to Jewish parents and was a member of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. He was murdered together with thirteen other members of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in 1952 during Stalin’s anti-Semitic campaigns of the late 1940s and early 1950s. This event came to be known as the Night of the Murdered Poets, as five of the thirteen victims were Yiddish writers. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

Saturday Market, Beverley 1881 (archive ref PH-4-5 a)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) An almost deserted market place in Beverley in the early 1880s. Those familiar with this East Yorkshire town will see how strikingly similar this scene is to the present-day layout of the street. Even 'The Green Dragon' hotel, indicated by the sign on the left, still retains its name to this day, although it now operates primarily as a public house.

'Tom Pudding train' on the canal at Goole 1882 (archive ref DDX882-19)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) The term 'Tom Pudding' was used to describe tub boats on the Aire and Calder Navigation. They were introduced in 1863 and remained in use until 1985. The tub boats carried coal from Stanley Ferry in South Yorkshire to the port of Goole in West Yorkshire (now part of the East Riding). Such was the popularity of the Tom Pudding train that it competed for some time with freight rail transportation.

Navigation bridge (iron) on curved lock, dock on canal entrance, another bridge, towns old mill, hills, in background
Description: On a dull and dreary morning in Ireland a bright and sun filled stereo pairs image of a canal/dock. The young man leaning over the railing looking at the water is doing what young men have done across the ages - watching the world go by! Given the washed out detail we thought this might prove to be difficult to locate? However, our contributors were able to adjust the contrast slightly, bringing more of the detail easier to make out, and helping confirm the location as the bridge over the Tralee Ship Canal. We can also see Blennerville's distinctive windmill in the background. (The latter coincidentally appearing in some VT during this evening's Rose of Tralee festival coverage :) ) Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: between ca. 1860-1883 NLI Ref: STP_1778 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Industrial Schools, Letterfrack, Co. Galway
Description: Nestling under a twin of the Sugar Loaf Mountain is the Industrial School of Letterfrack. Set in the far wilds of Connemara it was known a feared place for its young occupants as much by reason of its dramatic location! Today's contributions (thankfully/unusually downbeat) highlighted how the pictured St Joseph's Industrial School, while initially set up with likely positive intentions, was so heavily referenced in the reports of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse that St Joseph of Letterfrack was labelled as "the cruel saint" by some. As per the comments below, based on the layout of the buildings pictured, it is expected that the 5 decade catalogue range (c.1860s-1910s) can be refined to perhaps a decade or so (c.1900-1910s).... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range of c.1865-1914. Likely c.1900-1910s.

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!

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.

Sessions House, photograph of print 1830 (archive ref PH-4-6 )
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) Sessions House, New Walk, photograph of print, c.1830 New Walk was laid out in around 1778-1780 and the Sessions House and House of Correction were designed by Watson and Pritchett of York in 1804 and built around 1807-1814. 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.

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.

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. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: c.1901 -1954.

West Beach, Queenstown, Co. Cork
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....

Swiss Cottage?
Description: A funny looking house all cobbled together making what somebody thought was a Swiss Cottage? This fine, carefully posed photograph from Mr. Poole has a family showing off their finery and their toys! Their dress would indicate that the shot was taken earlier in the date range rather than later? Where is/was it and who were the lucky family? As usual, the answers weren't long coming. The "where" was confirmed as Swiss Cottage, Newtown Road, Waterford, and the "who" as the Fanning family. The "when" is less certain, but - despite the catalogue range - possibly a few years earlier than the 1901 census.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. But likely around or before 1901.

Spa Baths, Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare
Description: Happy smelly Monday as todays shot takes us to the beauty of West Clare, and the town of Lisdoonvarna - with its occasional reek of sulphur from the waters. This beautiful shot from the lens of Mr. French shows the bath houses in pristine condition, with many people there relaxing and enjoying themselves. (And congratulations to the Ireland team for their first ever victory against the mighty New Zealand All Blacks. Magnificent!) Lots of brilliant insights on this image in the comments. Including a reminder that we've followed the Victorian fashion and "taken the waters" at Lisdoonvarna's other wells before today. This Lawrence Collection image captures just how popular a tourist activity it was - with dozens of seemingly middle-class visitors at their leisure. Presumably rented towels are drying outside the bath house, and musical entertainment is evident outside the pump house - confirming that the crowds came to Lisdoonvarna long before the music and matchmaking festivals.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Though likely after c.1890 based on the date of the main pump-house building.

Kilmanahan Castle, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary
Description: Yet another fine image of an Irish castle from the Lawrence Collection. When you see these shots of beautiful buildings you begin to realise the loss the country suffered during the course of the early part of the 20th century. This one has, not only the building, but also a resident and their mode of transport outside the front door! WIll we still be playing Elton John's 'I'm Still Standing' at the end of the day? Thankfully, based on today's inputs, we are happy to confirm that (though perhaps not in song form) that this castle is largely still standing. Though at least parts of it are in ruin - possibly with damage caused in the decades following this image. As our intrepid Flickroonies tell us, this castle lies on the eastern bank of the River Suir - right on the border between Co Waterford and Co Tipperary. The castle was seemingly associated with the Earls of Donoughmore, and DannyM8 offers some census returns for those in the building in 1901 and 1911 (perhaps even covering the lady pictured at the doorway...)

Wagging tail and wagging tongues at the post office (Portrush, Co Antrim)
Description: This lovely shot by Robert French shows the Post Office in Portrush with a seemingly posed group - complete with a DOG! Anybody who can come up with the name of the dog will be guaranteed an Irish virtual sticky bun - not as exotic as the Australian version but very tasty nonetheless. With thanks to the usually insightful contributions, it seems that we can narrow the 50-year catalogue range to perhaps a decade or two in the late 19th century (certainly the fashions point more to 1870s/1880s than the early 20th century). Niall McAuley and O Mac have also helped us map this image to the site of the "old" post office on Main Street Portrush. (The "new(er)" post office was built c.1908 and is now a library...)

Grotesque and Ghastly Gothic or Soaring Spiky Spires?
Description: This stereo pairs image of a church with lots and lots of spiked abutments and spires on a Y shaped avenue was selected to finish the week. For me its appearance is both unwelcoming and forbidding - having a dark and austere aspect. The location and subject was very quickly identified by sharon.corbet as Down Cathedral. The cathedral is formally known as the "Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity". As [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] explains, and per the Wikipedia article, at least some of the structure dates to the 13th and 14th centuries, with the "gothic revival" flourishes added in the late 18th and early 19th centuries....

The Lodge, Spa, Ballynahinch : commissioned by Terence G.Johnson, Esq
Description: To start the week is an unusual image from the Poole Collection. Labelled as "The Lodge, Spa, Ballynahinch, Co. Down : commissioned by Terence G.Johnson, Esq", this is unusual in that it is far from his normal range around south Munster and Leinster. This one is labelled as north of the border, apparently in the 1930s when the two parts of the island were going their separate ways.... ....When today's contributors couldn't seemingly find evidence of this house in Spa, County Down, sharon.corbet was (somehow through skill/graft/ESP or a mixture of all) able to confirm why: this isn't County Down at all. Rather, Sharon has confirmed that Poole didn't get this commission from more than 200 miles away in County Down, but from under 30 miles away: in Spa, County Tipperary. Closer to the usual Poole catchment area, and making way more sense, Sharon suggests that the Spa and Ballynahinch area of County Down was mistaken for "Raheen House, Spa, Ballynahinch, Co Tipperary" - where the family of Terence G(reer) Johnston lived...

A distinguished gentleman in robes and chain of office sitting on a throne (of sorts)
Description: This fine Poole portrait portraying probably the Lord Mayor of a city to end this week. The robes and chain are very ornate and he is seated on a very finely carved chair - but who is he and what was the office he held? Today's contributors, including [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] spotted the coat or arms, motto and regalia as those of Waterford - so clearly this is a Waterford mayor. Given that the catalogue date of the image was 1927, it was originally thought that maybe this was John J. Wyley - who was mayor that year. However, various clues didn't support that suggestion (not least the age of the man, the name of the person who comissioned the photo, and a "copy" label in the catalogue entry). There is therefore much stronger evidence that the mayor pictured is Henry Grainger, who was mayor in 1898. It seems likely a family member (probably a daughter) commissioned a copy from the Poole studio during the 1920s.... Photographer: A. H.

Village of Leenane, County Galway
Description: This picture of an idyllic scene, a tiny village from across a body of water with hills in the background, gives a romantic view of Ireland at the turn of the 20th century. It puts a gloss over the hardship and poverty of rural Ireland at that time. With that cheerful note, we can look forward to the end of September and the start of October at the weekend! With subject and location already established here, some of today's investigations focused on dates. The general consensus is that (based on the family businesses pictured) the image may have been taken close to the 1901 or 1911 censuses. Perhaps even c.1906/1907 when we know the French/Lawrence were in the area seemingly overlapping with a visiting tourist bus. Whether or not we can refine it to the turn of the century, it seems likely to have been taken in the later decades of the 50-year catalogue range...

Knocka Castle, Templemore, Co. Tipperary
Description: Back to County Tipperary once more - but to the North Riding this time. Knocka Castle in ruins near Templemore looks to have been once a great house with a Norman tower nearby for refuge (perhaps in case the Whiteboys or Moonlighters come calling). Templemore, which we now associate with law and order was a place of much violent action during the "Troubles" including the burning down of castles - but this ruins seems to date from well before that! Based on today's contributions, we learned a bit more about the two structures captured here by French. In the foreground, according to the 19th century OSI maps. is Knockagh House. And in the background is Knockagh Castle. We learned that (per sharon.corbet) the older Norman-era(?) tower house in the background still stands. But that the house in the foreground, which had seemingly been in ruin for at least a century prior, was (per Carol Maddock) fully demolished in the early- or mid-20th century.

On the bridge below the mountain!
Description: While this scene is idyllic, the water looks perfect for fishing and that mountain in the background looks ideal for walking, it is the timing that makes this for me. Either Mr. French timed it perfectly to catch the mail coach just as it crossed the bridge or he persuaded the driver to stop long enough for him to get into position. Either way this is an instant favourite for me! Kudos today for the speed with which [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] identified and helped us map this to Brickeen Bridge in the Muckross Demesne in County Kerry....

Thanks to our typically helpful contributors, we know that Clonyn Castle is indeed standing, and in fact remains a private home. We also learned of it's temporary use, after WWII, as a home for recuperating children who had survived the holocaust...

Pioneering Scouts Youth Organization Hashomer Hatzair in Lithuania
Description: Founded in 1913, as a merger between Tse’ire Agudat Tsiyon and Ha-Shomer, the organization Hashomer Hatzair was a Zionist-socialist youth movement that trained young people to immigrate to kibbutz in Palestine. The organization was founded in Galicia but expanded throughout Europe in the 1920s – by the late 1920s the organization had over ten thousand members, a number which had more than doubled by the start of WWII. The mixture of Zionism and socialism at the core of Hashomer Hatzair and its focus upon encouraging immigration set the organization apart from other youth organizations of the time that were either less expressly political or less focused (or hostile to) the cause of Zionism – while members of the organization who had already immigrated pushed the organization further and further to the left. With the onset of WWII many members of the organization attempted to get to Palestine, while others fled from the Nazis, even as others fell victim to their onslaught. Many members of Hashomer Hatzair became prominent leaders in the anti-Nazi resistant movements such as Haykah Grossman, Mordekhai Anielewicz, and Abba Kovner. This bookstamp belonged to a branch of Hashomer Hatzair active in Kovno – attesting to the fact that many of the branches of the organization had libraries. Hashomer Hatzair is still an active organization today. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

Blackadder Hotel, Ballynahinch, Co. Galway

This is up there with the most scenic Lawrence photographs we have seen. With thanks today to sharon.corbet, B-59, beachcomber, and guliolopez we have been able to map this image to the Angler's Return Hotel near Toombeola, County Galway. We also learned that Walter Blackadder (innkeeper and head of the Ballynahinch trout and salmon fishery) was well known in fishing and game circles in that part of the world for some years. The consensus is that this image is unlikely to be before 1895 (when Blackadder possibly took-over as both local innkeeper and gamekeeper)....

Trinity College, Brian Boro's Harp, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: The Harp that once through Tara's halls... Well it may have been heard in Kincora? Here we see the Trinity College (or Brian Boru) harp as it was following (what the Wikipedia article describes as) a "bad restoration" of the 1830s. A bad restoration or not, it was in the form we see here that the harp became the model for the coat of arms of Ireland, the Guinness logo, the coins of Ireland, etc. It was subject to a more complete (and better received) restoration in the 1960s. As contributors to the discussion below point-out, while legend implies that the harp once belonged to the 11th century High King Brian Boru, more concrete evidence dates it to the 15th century. Following restoration in the 1960s, the harp was dramatically stolen from and returned to Trinity College, Dublin. The ancient harp continues to be displayed in the long room of the library at Trinity.

Frescati House, Blackrock
Description: Once one of the great houses of Dublin and today a shopping mall, the demolition of this building was viewed by quite a few as a "monumental act of vandalism". B-59 draws our attention to the Frescati House Wikipedia article which covers its history and association with the FitzGerald family and United Irishmen. Perhaps most interesting however (made relevant in recent times with events affecting other 18th century manor homes) are the sections of the Wikipedia article dealing with the 15 year fight to save Frescati from demolition.

Library of the Riga Infantry School
Description: The Riga Infantry School was founded on September 19th, 1940, shortly after the Soviet Occupation of Latvia in June 1940. From the beginning of the Nazi Invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 until June 29th, both students and teachers of the Riga Infantry School were involved in the fighting. Riga was abandoned by the Soviets and occupied by the German forces on July 1st. The Riga Infantry School reopened on July 13th in the city of Sterlitamak in the Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, this Republic being one of the main destinations of evacuees and evacuated infrastructure and factories during the war. While there, students and officers helped with various tasks as the war situation required, such as helping with laying electrical wire and harvesting crops. The Riga Infantry School was disbanded in 1946. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

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). NLI Ref: POOLEWP 2278 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie
