The fixing for the sign over the doors is still on the building!!
same family in Dungarvan in 1920 ? www.waterfordcountyimages.org/exhibit/web/DisplayWAIImage...
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Could be. (Although Crotty's a common enough name around Waterford and Kilkenny)
In 1926, production of the Overland ended and the marque was replaced by the Whippet brand of small cars. In the economic depression of the 1930s a number of Willys automotive brands faltered. Stearns-Knight was liquidated in 1929. Whippet production ended in 1931, its models replaced by the Willys Six and Eight. Production of the Willys-Knight ended in 1933.

The scratched out shop next door was at one time Hodkinson, Paint and Decorator.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Have found some ads in the Irish Independent and Munster News for Crotty's of Waterford and Dungarvan so you were dead right. It was the same family...
For an indication of contemporary prices, found this in the Irish Independent of Saturday, 27 October 1928...

[http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] That's a rather lovely one, despite saying there may be "Yoemen" in the photo. Confused about the numbering though. In that early one, no. 10 is McDonald and no. ?? is Hodkinson. We definitely seem to have an 11 over the door of Crotty's by 1928...
Forerunner of the Jeep - more Overland Willys in Australia, but no sign of a Whippet ...
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Very impressed that we're all discussing Willys in a mature fashion with no sniggering whatsoever!
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] [http://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] Especially notable as you mention a happy ending in the Pantomime photo!!!
Great photo! I would love to have that gas pump in my man cave.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Well if you get tired of that one, here's a Shell Pump for you...
Thank you. Both photos are great photos!
A great Photo and right across the street from Mr Poole, very convenient.
A.H. Poole, 34 The Mall
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Of course! :)
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] Mr Poole's place looks wonderfully exuberant, perhaps even OTT.
The Overland Willys Whippet Limerick
A bit of a dog was the 'Whippet' -
So a little bird told me (a pipit).
As this photo depicts
It came in '4' and a '6'
Willys size doesn't matter, so stick it!
you can put up as many motoring photos as you want ,you wont hear me complain!!!!..........any photos of commercial vehicles would be welcome...
Whippet, made by Willys-Overland of Toledo, Ohio. Or most likely their branch in Canada, it was standard practice to concentrate right-hand-drive production of American cars at the Canadian plant.

Wow what quality look at all the details and the wonderful black and white and all the tones in between.
Nice historic fragment.

Miss Crotty didn't want to ID her neighbour, it seems.
I love these motoring photos.
love that picture, so cinematic and like watching a scene from MGM old movie , its fun to see reality looks unreal
Awesome historic photo!
Two years since we posted this 1920s Poole photo, we've yet again come across the Crotty brothers (Daniel and John) and their garage and coach-building business. This time we find their (original?) Dungarvan business in a Mason photo - taken perhaps at least a decade before the Poole shot:
