Description: Back to the Poole Collection today, and a portrait of a very pretty lady in “Cowgirl” dress. Commissioned by Mr. Piper of Carlow she has one of the sweetest smiles we have seen on this stream!

The Smyths?
Description: Our catalogue tells us that this lovely family group was commissioned by Mrs. Smyth, 44 Poleberry, Waterford, which should help you with your deliberations. I always look forward to reading the comments on a photo like this one. It is fantastic that you can discover so much information about the people in the photos we feature here on Flickr, it really does bring them alive. +++ UPDATE +++ Well, this family photograph led to a lively chase up and down Poleberry in Waterford, trying to match likely families, and likely dogs in online dog license records. But the main problem is the “unusual” house numbering of Poleberry. Our Bernard Healy is not usually given to cast asparagus at anyone, but even he was driven to this extreme: “I think we have to conclude that the census enumerator was drunk, or the houses were re-numbered at some stage”.

Smiles all round for a good beginning!
Description: A lovely smiley wedding group from Mr. Poole to start the week on a positive note! The happy couple, the witnesses, and the clergy all have broad smiles, while the bride has a firm hold on her man. Ordered by Mr. Richard Siggins of 28 The Glen in Waterford. What can we find out about them? +++ UPDATE +++ We found out ridiculously fabulous information about them, and much of the heavy lifting was done by Bernard Healy! Meet engine driver Richard Siggins and Emily Cozens, both of 28 The Glen, Waterford. They got married in the Cathedral in Waterford on 23 October 1944, and their witnesses were William Siggins and Mary Josephine Cozens. The presiding priest was Fr. John O'Connor, so just the stray smiling priest yet to be identified...

Miss Nolan of Brownswood, Carrick-on-Suir was the lady who made the commission, but is she in the image, and what was the occasion? +++ UPDATE +++ Looks as if this one will have to simmer on the back burner for a while. No Brownswood Nolans in either the 1901 or 1911 censuseses. And Evening Mary could find nothing in any online newspapers.

The end of the line...
Description: Cavan might be the last place you would want to end up for Christmas, but that is only if you didn't know the many attractions of the town! A lovely shot from Mr. O'Dea of the railway station in Cavan with a full stop, which is what we will be doing until after the Christmas. On behalf of all at the NLI and from the Marys, we would like to wish all our many followers and contributors a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year. For those who do not celebrate Christmas we wish you the compliments of the season. Just to remind us that the season is made of children's memories here are the final lines from a poem by Patrick Kavanagh: I was six Christmases of age My father played the melodeon, My mother milked the cows, And I had a prayer like a white rose pinned, On the Virgin Mary's blouse.

There appears to have been quite a bit of manipulation of the image to improve or otherwise alter it! +++ UPDATE +++ Gorgeous information on this lovely wedding photo.

Thanks be to all the digitised family history records now available, we got to vigorously ring our People Identified bell. This photograph marked the wedding of Edward Grace and Ellen Angela Power, who got married on Wednesday, 18 August 1943 in St. John's church, Waterford. Edward Grace was a fitter of 42 Lower Yellow Road. We have no occupation for Ellen Angela Power, but she lived at 108 Ballytruckle, Waterford.
