The Irish Louvain
Description: While we didn’t manage to identify yesterday’s military man, today we know the where, the when, and the why. The burning of the centre of Cork city by Crown forces in 1920 was a monstrous act of vandalism. This fine Hogan-Wilson photograph gives some idea of the scale and the devastation inflicted! Just to remind people that there is an important exhibition of photographs from this period in Irish history showing in the National Photographic Archive, Meeting House Square, Dublin entitled “From Turmoil to Truce” Photographer: W.

Lying out for the wake.
Description: Today we have a photograph of a man "laid out" in other words who has died and is in his coffin/bed while his friends, relatives and admirers come to pay their last respects. For some reason I think that this is a clergyman though in those days most people were dressed in a "habit" when they were being buried. It probably also means that the traditional Irlsh Wake was not going to have quite the same vigour as most! What can we find out about him and how is he an Irish Political figure?

Hugging and a kissing in the back row of the movies
Description: From the Wild West of Ireland yesterday, well Mayo at any rate, to Hollywood's version of the Wild West today. This passionate publicity shot is from Cimarron (1931), starring Irene Dunne and Richard Dix. It’s part of our Sheehy Skeffington Photographic Collection. We’d love to know more about this fillum.

Drawing (allegedly), unidentified building (definitely).
Description: Back on terra firma today, but we don't know where this building, described in our catalogue as "Drawing, unidentified building" was (or maybe still is). In Ireland or 'out foreign'? While everyone agrees that this is definitely not in Ireland, and very likely somewhere on the continent (France, Germany, or bordering countries), the precise location seems to evade us. Which is surprising in itself :) Have we finally stumped the unstumpable? Collection: Mason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1890-1910.

A bit early for Bloomsday?
Description: Bloomsday 16 June 1954, has been illustrated before by the Wiltshire Collection, but this shot was taken indoors with two named personalities. The significance of Con Leventhal and Michael Scott escapes me. But I am sure the many Joyce scholars out there can enlighten me... The general consensus is that this image captures Abraham "Con" Levanthal (academic and literary critic), Michael John Scott (architect and one-time Abbey actor) and Patricia Scott (TCD grad and wife of Scott). All of whom would have been very familiar with Joyce's works and the art world in Dublin in general....

King George VI visits Dundalk
Description: O'Dea has created such a wonderful record of the transition from steam to diesel and the closure of stations. This magnificent shot of a visit by a beautiful locomotive must have been a mouth watering occasion for him and all railway enthusiasts? And, indeed, whether foaming at the mouth our otherwise, our own railway enthusiasts have identified this "2-6-0" loco as No 99 (class W) "King George VI”, of the Northern Counties (NCC) railway company. According to this Wikipedia article, there were 15 of these locos in use in Ireland. Most with colorful names :) Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Description: This is a very unusual image and clearly one that was used to identify police and military figures for future reference.

Belfast: 'Evolution of Lighting: Ireland'. Gas Works, mechanical stoker and drawer
Description: Advances in science and technology to start this week with public lighting evolving in Belfast. After the eons during which lighting was by candle or taper moving over to gas lighting must have seemed to be a revolutionary advance? Whether an incremental or exponential advance, this mechanical stoker device must have allowed a LOT more coke and coal to be fed and maintained in these numerous furnaces. While it must've put at least a few chaps out of work, one imagines their lungs (and backs) were better off at least...... Photographer: Thomas H.
