Four bridesmaids with rather large bouquets. The bride may have been Mrs De La Poer, or she was mother of either the bride or groom.

Thanks to Niall McAuley, we now know this photo was taken at Gurteen-le-Poer, Clonmel.

    [[email protected]] Well, those large bouquets manage to hide a fair amount of the dresses!

    They are all mentally counting the bridesmaid dresses that are stacking up in the back of their closet. There is the fluffy pink one, that sickly green one . . .

    I'd love to know what colour they were .... the overlay looks as if it might shimmer.

    I wonder were people considered mad if they smiled in photographs pre 1970...

    Think back, there you are posing, while the photographer has the camera on a tripod, head under the black cloth, taking forever to fix the lens etc. Would you want to smile after all that waiting?

    Browsing the nli archive for Poer related stuff, I see this: Gurteen-le-Poer , Clonmel, on the OS 25" historical map. You can see an image of this doorway halfway down this page.
