Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) A great storm struck the east coast town of Hornsea on 12th March 1906. This image shows how the sea cut away part of the promenade overnight.

Bathing Strand, Co. Wicklow
Description: From the Rocky Road to Glencar to the "golden sands" of Wicklow today. A glorious summer scene with a broad strand dotted with occasional seasonal visitors. I suspect that modern transport has made this a lot busier on sunny days today? Sunny or not, there's no evidence of active bathing in the shot, which - per today's discussion - is expected to be at the very latter end of the given catalogue range. Thanks especially to O Mac, B-59, Niall McAuley and beachcomberaustralia for helping date and locate this French image...

Ballaghbema Pass, Glencar, Co. Kerry
Description: While possibly not overly relevant for the day that's in it - International Women's Day - today's image takes us from the hallowed halls of the Royal Belfast Academical Institution to the rocky narrow road of the Ballaghbema Pass in Glencar, County Kerry. Close to Killarney and Dunloe, and more commonly known as the Ballaghbeama Gap today, this is still a popular tourist driving and cycling route. With thanks to the eagle eyes of today's contributors, we know that the car we see was attached to the nearby Glencar Hotel, with a suggestion that the hotel driver pictured was either James Moriarty or (as he'd likely still have been young at the time), a hotel driver predecessor of his....

Academical Institute, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From an ancient plaque on a wall in Galway to a celebrated centre of learning in Belfast to start the week. This imposing if architecturally bland building houses the Belfast Academical Institute better known as "Inst". With thanks to today's contributors, we learned that the main building pictured (the Belfast Academical Institute) dates from c.1810, with the other building to the right (the Belfast Technical College) dating from c.1907. The latter helping date this French image. Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: dated c.1865-1914 (though possibly early 20th c.)

Tablet at Abbey, Galway City
Description: Labelled in the catalogue as "Abbey Trench's Tablet, Galway City, Co. Galway", this is the kind of detail that Morning Mary loves to find and shoot herself - so really looking forward to finding out more about the Tablet and Abbey Trench (whoever he was?). Very quickly we learned that the catalogue transcription was likely an error, and that this is not "Trench's Tablet", but "French's Tablet" (in more ways than one). Likely photographed by Robert French in the late-19th or early-20th century, this engraving is part of what remains of the 17th century tomb of the family of Peter French (d.1630s) and his wife Mary Browne. With thanks to sharon.corbet and O Mac we learned that the tomb was destroyed by Cromwellian forces in the mid-17th century. But parts of it incorporated into the walls of the Franciscan Abbey at Francis Street in Galway during the late-18th century. Our intrepid roving reporter O Mac went and captured a "today" shot of the same plaque - confirming that it is still in place. Although with the detail more weathered since French's shot 100+ years prior....

Aasleagh, Assleagh, Co. Galway
Description: For Trusty Thursday we have an architectural mish mash of a house near the beautiful Aasleagh Falls. With thanks in particular today to contributions from B-59, sharon.corbet, DannyM8 , & O Mac, we have confirmation of the subject (Aasleagh Lodge), it's location (close to Leenane on the Galway/Mayo border), and possibly refined date range (likely 1906 +/- 5 years or so). Quite interesting is that we learned that this image would have been a candidate for our "no longer standing" album - had it not been for restoration works undertaken after the house was burned in the 1920s...

Description: A fine Lawrence shot of a fine Dublin establishment. The Blackhorse Tavern AKA "The Hole in the Wall" pub on Blackhorse Avenue. The late President Sean T. O'Kelly was reputed to slip out of the nearby Áras for a bottle of stout. With thanks to everyone for their contributions, we learned today how the pub got it's nickname, the publican(s) that made it what it is, that it is Dublin's "longest pub", and a little about the coin-operated machines out front...

Globe Inn, Ladygate, Beverley c.1915 (archive ref PH-1-67)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) This week’s photograph is of the Globe Inn Public House, Ladygate, Beverley, c.1910. Situated behind the pub, was Globe Inn yard, which was entered through the archway from Ladygate as you can see in the picture. At one time it contained many small houses. The yard was owned by the landlord and was used for the Beverley pig market during the middle of the 19th century, as well as a cock pit where locals would have gambled on cock fights. The pub was closed in 1963 and demolished in 1968 to allow a road link between Sow Hill and Walkergate. A glazed door from the demolition is now preserved in the kitchen of a Keldgate House. Houses in Globe Court and Globe Mews now occupy the original site.

Friary Lane, Beverley, c.1865 (archive ref PH-4-7)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) This vintage view of the Minster from Friary Lane is quite interesting as it shows a level crossing over the Hull to Scarborough line where there is now a footbridge. The railway came to Beverley in 1846, courtesy of the Hull and Selby Railway Company, which belonged to George Hudson, the Railway King. At this time the road was part of Chantry Lane, but was renamed Friars Lane in 1928. The station was built on land known as the Trinities, on the site of a medieval hospital. Behind the wall on the right is the Dominican Friary.

In the days before television, events like this would have caused much more of a stir than they do nowadays. Just ten years later, in 1911, circus proprietor Sanger was murdered with a hatchet by one of his workers, Herbert Charles Cooper.

Yacht : commissioned by Mrs. Stanley Lyons, 62 Leinster Road, Rathmines
Description: A fine days sailing in the offing with a fine yacht decked out with bunting and flags. Given that it was during the Emergency it seems a bit 'off' but I'm sure life went on! We did not discover much about the Yacht. The intrepid derangedlemur identified the location as Dunmore East Co. Waterford.

Stone slab for prehistoric sacrifice, Hjuleberg, Halland, Sweden
Description: Stone slab for sacrifice with cup marks, at Hjuleberg. Locally called "The Monk's stone". The stone was probably used for ritual sacrifice, maybe of grains of corn. A so called "stone with fairies' mills". Pencil drawing by Gustaf Brusewitz, from ca 1865. Offerhäll med skålgropar (älvkvarnar) vid Hjuleberg, lokalt kallad "Munkestenen".

General Lord Roberts AKA
Description: This Poole image of a much decorated British General is a fine portrait shot. Kipling adored Roberts and wrote a poem especially about him. THERE’S a little red-faced man,    Which is Bobs, Rides the tallest ’orse ’e can—    Our Bobs. If it bucks or kicks or rears, ’E can sit for twenty years With a smile round both ’is ears—    Can’t yer, Bobs? From our researchers we find that Field Marshal Viscount Roberts came from a Waterford family and he had strong Waterford roots. He was the winner of the Victoria Cross and had accumulated many decorations and awards including Knight of St. Patrick. Among the many positions he held was as the last Commander in Chief of the British Army. Many thanks to Beachcomber Australia, Niall McAuley, Paul O'Farrell and many others for filling in the details on this distinguished soldier. Indeed not to allow Rudyard Kipling to be the only poet on the block Beachcomber composed a limerick especially for "Bobs"! Map and tags updated. Photographer: A. H.

The Housekeeper was sacked last week!
Description: The title on this shot is ""Upton", Newtown, smoking room : commissioned by Captain Greathead" which almost sounds like the name of a James Bond movie character! The similarity with the drawing room in a recent Clonbrock image is striking, especially the fussy arrangement and profusion of pictures on the walls. There seems to be some agreement that this photo was taken on Sunday 24th April 1898. Well done to all who spotted this. It seems that the house has been demolished to improve the facilities at De La Salle College. Niall McAuley identifies Harvey Greathed as the owner of the house at the time. Photographer: A. H.

Estate and property outside Clonmel
Description: This idyllic rural scene taken from a great height is an unusual one from the Poole Collection. Describing it as an estate seems a bit grand as it looks more like a farm or small holding but where is it? I expected that it would take a while to identify this location and as usual I am surprised at the ease at which the discoveries around here are made. Rory_Sherlock tells us that the photo was taken from Graignagower looking across to Knockatrellane and links us to the OSI map which identifies the building as a Smithy. Niall McAuley then links us to the streetview which confirms that we are talking about the correct location. Niall McAuley further informs us that the Parish is Knockatrellane, and in 1911, there was exactly one blacksmith in the parish: John Farrell, John and Johanna were there in 1901 as well. I think it is a fair bet that the person at the door is either John or Johanna. I am waiting on the name of the Dog. Excellent work today, well done all. Photographer: A. H.

The Old Man of the Holy Well
Description: If ever there was a photograph of a man taking his ease in beautiful surroundings this must be it. A holy well in Sligo from the Eason collection. Well done to B-59 for identifying the location just ahead of Niall McAuley , this is the Tobernalt holy well near to Sligo, Co Sligo. The derivation and meaning of the word "Tobernalt" is uncertain and is open to interpretation. It is an Anglicisation of an Irish phrase, but the uncertainty stems from which actual Irish phrase the name derives from. Eamonn Boylan holds that the name is more likely to mean the "Well in the Cliff" (Tobar san Aill). This would make sense as the stream comes down through a cleft in the mountain immediately behind the well. This can be clearly seen in the photos section. However, others believe that the name may mean "Well of the Insane" (Tobar na nGealt). This interpretation may be given some credence as the Cistercians used the nearby Cottage Island as an asylum for the lepers and insane in medieval times. It's almost certain that these people would have rowed the short distance across the lake to visit the Holy Well in search of a cure.

Walker's Monument, Derry City, Co. Derry
Description: From one city of 5 sieges to a city of "The Great Siege" at the other end of the island. With thanks to today's contributors, we learned that this is indeed Walker's Monument/Column, now (given what remains) known as Walker's Memorial Plinth. Built in the 1820s, this was a memorial to George Walker, who was a governor during the Siege of Derry in 1689. Originally 90 feet in height and capped by statue of Walker, not unlike Nelson's Pillar in Dublin, it had an internal staircase and viewing platform. Also similar to Nelson's Pillar however, it was destroyed in an explosion - although the remains of the statue were removed and partially survive elsewhere. With thanks in particular to Niall McAuley for today's inputs, it's suggested that the image may date from the early 20th rather than late 19th century - given that we can't see the original sword in the statue's hand - seemingly blown down in the early 20th century....

Cushendall County Antrim
Description: A very Happy St. Brigids day to you all! This, the feast day of Irelands female deity/saint is the herald of Spring and a day for women to celebrate. Labelled in the catalogue as "Antrim, possibly County Glen village, Co. Antrim", we begin the week with a stereo-pairs shot showing a village from on high - possibly with a canal nearby(?) With thanks to today's commenters, we have confirmation that this is indeed County Antrim, and the village of Cushendall. The village was renamed by an 18th and 19th century estate to Newtown Glens, but later reverted to Cushendall - this may perhaps explain the unusual name applied to the image in our catalogue...

Down by the rocky pool!
Description: This Stereo Pair shot of a man standing by a pool in County Clare to end this week. In a week with at least two storms, the waters in this shot are calm and still, perhaps we will have a storm free weekend? Labelled in the catalogue as "stream in foreground., with man standing, big house in background, 3 storey, 7 bays wide, 10ft deep, Co. Clare", we have confirmation thanks to Niall McAuley that this is Ennistimon County Clare. Previously Ennistimon House, the building pictured is now the aptly named Falls Hotel. Given that the Stereo Pair was the "virtual reality" of the 19th century, it also seems apt that streetview offers-up the 21st century equivalent - a near identically placed photosphere image (a navigable 360 degree image that someone captured on their Android phone...)

Democratic Zionists Guild Hakhsharah
Description: Many Zionist groups throughout Europe worked to actively prepare their members for eventual immigration. Therefore, numerous “Haksharah” (Zionist Training Farms) were set up to provide young Zionists with the types of agricultural experience that they would need once they left Europe and arrived in, what was then, Palestine. These training farms were set up by various different Zionist groups in various locations throughout Europe, though the farms were usually affiliated with various branches of Labor Zionism. This stamp attests to the fact that in addition to having various agricultural tools, some of these training farms also had libraries. The city of Kharkov was an important hub of Jewish activity in the late nineteenth century – it was home to a vibrant Jewish community and was an important center for Zionist activity which included, evidently, Zionist training farms. 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. For more information on this project check the Center’s blog: 16thstreet.tumblr.com/tagged/Offenbach-Depot Dr. Mitch Fraas, Acting Director of the Digital Humanities Forum at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries' Special Collections Center is working on a similar project for the German book stamps based on NARA microfilm of the volumes the American Jewish Historical Society currently holds.

A meeting of waters... is Belleek, Co. Fermanagh
Description: This beautiful scene with a stream joining a larger river just above a bridge makes a scene that many photographers would love to shoot today! With thanks especially today to the keen eyes and memory of O Mac we have confirmation that this is the River Erne at Belleek on the Fermanagh/Donegal border. Sharon.corbet points out that the building to the left is the renowned Belleek Pottery works - completed per Niall McAuley in 1862. Niall also tells us that the river, bridge and waterfall look so different today because of drainage and other works completed in the 1880s....

Michael's Lane, Dublin City
Description: Today we go from the grandeur of the Great Northern Hotel to inner city Dublin with plenty of life and points of interest to ponder. Is that a "Fagins" of urchins on the left foreground? What do you call a group of urchins? Apart from what to call the gaggle/huddle of "urban youth" on the left, with thanks especially to Niall McAuley, swordscookie, sharon.corbet, pellethepoet, O Mac and others, we learned a lot about Michael's Lane close to Christ Church in Dublin. We learned that this image was likely taken close to the end of the 19th or very early 20th century. When the lane was a particularly poverty stricken area - with between 3 and 4 families to each small house on the lane. The main profession (as seemingly evidenced by what we see hanging around - other than the kids) was that of "clothes broker". A trade also plied on nearby Winetavern St/Michael's Hill. See the full set of comments for links, images and the 1914 inquiry into the conditions on the lane - published shortly before the area was redeveloped to more closely resemble how it appears today.

Keeping up with the Jones's?
Description: The domestic dwelling to the right of this shot must have felt that nothing they could do would enable them to keep up with the Jones's! The actual title for this was "Large domestic or institutional building possibly hotel 3 storeys, 15-16 bays wide, drive, balustrades, ditto on porch, near sea, wooded hills in background, Co. Down". We thought that it was the Mournes in the background .... And indeed today's commenters, in particular Niall McAuley, sharon.corbet, and beachcomberaustralia, confirmed that this is the Mourne Hotel (later Great Northern Hotel) in Rostrevor, County Down. Opened in the late 1870s (likely very shortly before this image was taken), the hotel was destroyed during the Troubles in the 1970s.

Description: The recent scenes from Salthill in Galway are in marked contrast to the beautiful still conditions in this lovely Lawrence image of (allegedly) the same spot. We thought it was perhaps too calm to be the west coast. And indeed today's commenters have provided evidence that, though labelled as "Salthill Hotel, Salthill, Co. Galway" in our catalogue, this is more likely to be Co. Dublin.

Portumna Castle
Description: To Portumna beside the Shannon and to a ruin before the desolation of the War of Independence and the Civil War. This once fine old building appears as an empty shell in this Lawrence/French shot ... however today's commenters and investigators report that the building looks much better now, having been restored since this image was captured. Amongst the interesting nuggets of location, history and excavation information provided by sharon.corbet, B-59 and Niall McAuley is confirmation that there were two great houses in the Portumna Demesne - one of which was destroyed in the 1920s, but the other was damaged by fire in the 1820s (during renovation work to an earlier 17th century fortified house). It is the latter that we see here - a building that wasn't fully restored until the 1980s. John Spooner also highlights a very unexpected connection with our recent eviction series - that a battering-ram used in some evictions had been made from a tree from Portumna lands. Thanks also to beachcomberaustralia for linking us to the interesting aerial/drone footage. Lots to digest today - Thanks all!

Government House, Cork City, Co. Cork

This beautiful building wasn't familiar to us, and we did hope that it is still extant.

Donkeys in the field
Description: Welcome back all and a Happy New Year to everyone! I haven't seen so many asses since the fair in Spancil Hill! Donkeys in the field would suggest that we know where the field is but do we? The consensus from the community comments below is that this image is part of a Poole series covering donkey export - possibly eventually onto a steamship at Waterford for export to Durban. So it seems likely "the field" was a holding area close to Waterford city. The other images in the series (and information provided by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] others) suggest that the image dates from the earliest decade or so of the 1901-1954 catalogue range...

Survey of Dublin, Co. Dublin
Description: An ancient map of a much smaller Dublin as photographed by Lawrence. The north side appears to have been the poor relation even back then. With thanks to today's contributors, and following from a previous posting of the original image on our other Flickr stream we know that while Lawrence photographed this map in the late 19th or early 20th century, it was drawn by James Malton in the 1780s or 90s, and based on an earlier survey by John Speed in 1610. Malton (1761–1803) is perhaps best known for his "Views of Dublin", but what Lawrence captured here was a folio Malton created that was included in the book "History of the City of Dublin: From the Earliest Accounts to the Present Time"....

Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) In 1636, the Mayor of Beverley, Thwaites Fox, granted cottages in Minster Moorgate for use as a hospital for four poor widows.

The Hospital was sold in 1872 and the money transferred to the Beverley Consolidated Charities. In 1890 the cottages still existed but were then demolished to make way for Jubilee Terrace.

The Bar itself was rebuilt in 1409 Buses used to drive through the arched Beverley Bar. Their roof outlines had to be altered in order to fit under. The service eventually stopped using the route when the road layout in Beverley changed allowing buses to enter and leave the town other than via the Bar.

Queensgate, Beverley, 1900 (archive ref DDX1525-1-8)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) This photograph shows a leisurely time, perhaps on a Sunday morning, people talking in the street, a pram outside one of the houses and a lady with a pony and trap passing by. The present day Queensgate running from Keldgate to Victoria Road was formerly known by various names of Humbergate, Humber Street, Chapel Lane, St. Thomas Chapel Lane and Cottingham Road. Queensgate was, however, used as early as 1628 with reference to the continuation of the road in Beverley Parks as far as the boundary now Victoria Road. It is now split into two parts, one running from its junction with Keldgate up to the roundabout leading to Lincoln Way and the second section leading to the Grammar School and Cemetery. Maps and documents of the 19th century frequently show 'Queensgate Road'.

Toll Gavel and Walkergate Corner c.1900 (archive ref PH-4-8)
Description: (Buy exclusive historic East Yorkshire prints from East Riding Photos http://picturearchivesorg/eastridingphotos) The name Toll Gavel possibly derives from the street whereby tolls were once collected and formed part of the medieval High Street. Running between Saturday Market and Butcher Row, its origins date back to at least the 12th century, and in Elizabethan times was sometimes called Kings Street. It once formed part of the main bus route to Hull, even with its narrow width. Walkergate is recorded as early as 1329 and was the street where, many years ago, the Walkers did their fulling and milling from where it derives its name. It was also used to cross the Walker Beck. Walkergate, now known as ‘Old Walkergate’, starts at the corner of Sow Hill Road and continues in a southerly direction until it reaches the junction of Toll Gavel and Butcher Row.
