... but real 19th century "Ice Grips"! Presenting Elizabeth Poole (wife of A.H. Poole)! Thought this studio shot of her was suitably seasonal, but also that we might be able to find out more about her and/or the rest of the Poole family who are responsible for our gorgeous Poole Collection photographs - many of which we've been enjoying here on Flickr for the last couple of years...

Photographer: Poole Photographic Studios, Waterford

Date: Circa 1890???

NLI Ref.: POOLEIMP 136A

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Thanks Danny. If Elizabeth was 43 in 1911, wondering how old she was(-ish) when this was taken...

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] Looks like 30 - 33 to me, me being an expert in the female form and all related. She was married when she was 17, so if you know for sure she is MRS then earliest is 1885, and if my 30 - 33 is correct latest 1901

    www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai001233711/ Here is the census for 1901 she is surprisingly 33 years old. Whereas Arthur aged 11 years in that same 10 year period!!!!

    If the faux snow melted there would be another pool on the studio floor.

    I hope it was a mild day when this photo was taken. On a warm day she would melt on the way to and from the photographers studio.
