    Perhaps daughter of Sir Charles Cameron? Found his obituary in the Irish Times, February 1921, but it doesn't name his daughters. By 1921, one daughter was married to a Mr. J.D. Gerrard, R.M and the other married to Major R. Stanley, principal of the Technical Institute in Belfast. Or the Lady Marion Cameron involved in this incident in Rio in 1936?

    Google spots her in Rio in 1936, and in 1925, she shot herself in Palermo (by accident): Palermo: Lady Marion Cameron, daughter of the Earl of Huntingdon, was accidentally shot on the lung while unloading a revolver in the hotel where she is staying. Her condition is not dangerous. If this is her, it is after 1918, when she married Capt. P.K Cameron, and before 1943, when she married Rear Admiral Captain Bridges.

    Lads! This exact photo appeared in the Irish Independent on Saturday, 18 April 1925, with this caption:

    Lady Marian Cameron (third daughter of the Earl of Huntingdon, and wife of Capt. Patrick Keith Cameron), who was found wounded, at her hotel in Palermo, by a revolver bullet of small calibre. She declared that she wounded herself accidentally while loading the revolver. — Poole, Waterford.

    Lady Marian was one of the many Society ladies whose photos appeared on advertisements for Pond’s Cold Cream in the 1930s…

    ”I’ve used Pond’s for years,” says lovely Lady Marian Cameron. “The Cold Cream is excellent for cleansing the skin and Pond’s Cleansing Tissues are so soft and silky.”
    (Cork Examiner, 24 May 1934)

    Is Ileene a variant spelling of Eileen, I wonder? From the Irish or Scottish bits of the family? Marian has an aunt Ileene Frances Cairne Hastings. (Also an unfortunate Uncle named Aubrey Craven Theophilus Robin Hood Hastings, but the less said...)

    Lady Marian was born in 1895 and is an adult here, so let's say 1910 earliest, and we know it is 1925 latest, when the Indo dusted off this picture for the shooting incident. Poole 3058 is the Hon. Mrs. Ian Maitland. This is 3059. Poole 3060 is Countess Spencer. Aha! 3061 is Lord Massareene, but the background has not been so completely erased. He is clearly at the races, with a stand behind him. The 11th Viscount Massareene died in 1905 aged 63, so this must be the 12th, Algernon William John Clotworthy Whyte-Melville Skeffington, 1873-1956. Countess Spencer: As a result of her marriage, Lady Cynthia Elinor Beatrix Hamilton was styled as Countess Spencer on 22 September 1922. So I think the date is 1922-25, and we are at the races in the sunny south east.

    I'm guessing Mrs Maitland is Ethel Mary Bell-Irving, who does not help with dates, being married in 1912, and not becoming a Countess until 1931.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Actually she might help: her father-in-law only became Earl in 1924, at which point her husband would normally be given one of his father's courtesy titles. So rather than the Hon. Mrs. Ian Maitland, she'd be Viscountess Maitland after that. ETA: Actually no, it doesn't help. Though it does probably imply latest 1924, unless Poole took no photos in the latter part of 1924...

    3064, the next dated one, is 6 October 1922. If anyone had a newspaper archive subscription (ahem ahem) they could check the South East for a fancy race meeting between 6 September and 6 October 1922.

September 16; City of Waterford, September 26 and 27: Limerick. October 5 and 6. No doubt this was on account of the Civil War now raging. " From Sydney Sportsman "Extract of Sport" 17 October 1922.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Right, Niall! Finally found this photo in the Irish Independent on 31 October 1922, if that helps? See how Poole has etched around Massereene on the glass plate negative? Just the head and shoulders were used, to illustrate a story about the burning of Antrim Castle, the seat of the Massereenes. (Apparently the fire was accidental, but either way, only the walls were left standing. The family, a house party, and the staff escaped, with the exception of a maid, Ethel Gilligan, who later died. Ironically, the Speaker’s chair of the old Irish House of Commons was destroyed in the fire. Massereene had previously refused to hand it over to what he termed a provincial parliament. He said he’d only allow this heirloom to go to the Parliament of a United Ireland.)

    So 4 portraits are archived between shots dated September and October 1922. One portrait was published in October 1922. One is of "Countess Spencer", who only acquired that title in September 1922. It is still possible that the archiving was done some time after the shots were taken, but I'm leaning towards a date of September 1922 for this one.

    And there is a village called Hastingues near where I live in the south-west of France, but, of course, the name is a reminder of the battle won by William the Conqueror as the "duché d'Aquitaine" (where I live) belonged to the English kings who had inherited it from "Aliénor d'Aquitaine" when she married Henry ....
