From one venerable Irish institution, Rebellion, to another, the Royal Dublin Society. This image is of the main hall at the RDS during either the Spring or Horse Show in the early 20th century.
The comments below offer interesting insights into the exhibitors and, importantly for us, a more refined date range for the photo. Thanks to all - and in particular Carol Maddock
whose investigations into the stand-holders and numbers would seem to establish a date or dates. We've updated the range for the entry (on Flickr at least for now), and mapped the image to the RDS Ballsbridge exhibition centre main hall.
