R.I.C. Depot, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Situated just inside the North Circular Road gates to the Phoenix Park these lovely, old, red bricked buildings always seemed separate from the old RIC Depot. Was Mr. French correct in his assertion that it was part of the Depot? It is certainly not the image that is shown these days for Garda Headquarters. The suggestion (proposed by Bernard Healy and endorsed by Niall McAuley and swordscookie) is that these were the 'Married Quarters' for RIC members and families based at the main Depot. Though only very slightly modified over the years since, the modern StreetView doesn't include the armed sentries which [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] tells us patrolled the site in the decades around this photo....

Cemetery, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: Good morning everyone, the excitement is palpable, the activity is corybantic, preparations are nearing an end, only two more sleeps until the opening of our Flicker exhibition "Photo Detectives" Keep tuned for further news and updates. Getting back to the days task, we have a very nice photo from the dead center of Belfast for your perusal, all contributions and comments welcome. Other than puns and poetry (and confirmation that the fountain is now more flower-bed than water-feature), the main learning today was that this fountain was built by the Sun Foundry around 1880 - helping condense the likely date range quite a bit.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Royal Infirmary, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: For Friday we find ourselves visiting an old friend. I worked with a man once who constantly mixed up his metaphors and he would say of this that it was a case of "veja du"! The Royal Infirmary on Infirmary Road with a wonderful collection of glassed greenhouses in the foreground, and several infirm infirmarians on the grass bank resting in the sunshine.

Crosthwaite Park, Kingstown, Co. Dublin
Description: A shot of a suburban scene in an exclusive area of Kingstown, as it was then known, in County Dublin. The beauty of the seascape, the proximity to the city centre and the easy access to the first railway in Ireland all make this area still very desirable. What was it about Crosthwaite Park though that attracted Robert French to take such shots? Niall McAuley tells us that this part of Dún Laoghaire was developed in the 1860s and 1870s, so it is possible that they were relatively new when this photo was taken. Sharon.corbet and Dún Laoghaire Micheál offer some extra information on the namesake developer, John Crosthwaite (1794-1884) who was a local - with Dún Laoghaire Micheál going so far as to source an article on the reading of his will. The houses surrounding the park were seemingly home to a number of influential names over the years, so it may be its grandeur, relative newness, or the prestige address that prompted this shot....

Victoria Castle East Gate, Killiney, Co. Dublin
Description: Had I not seen the caption on this image I would have thought that I was looking at a castle in Spain or some far land! A beautiful scene that is nearly on the doorstep of Library Towers! Killiney has changed a wee bit since this shot was taken by Mr. French... Sharon.corbet confirms that the castle has also changed a bit since - at least in name. Now called Manderley Castle and owned by musician Enya, Victoria Castle was built in the 1840s by QC and MP Robert Warren. O Mac suggests that it was captured before before the early 1880s (when Killiney railway station was built and would've been visible in the middle distance, as it is in the modern StreetView).

National Museum, Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Description: Library Towers stands on one side, the National Museum stands on the other and the adage "Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet" applies! A very old view of the Museum which will never be seen again. Something we also won't see again is the "fire escape station" we see in the centre. Our intrepid Flickroonies confirm that this public safety equipment wasn't just "left lying around" like so much street furniture. Often manned, it was quickly brought to bear when needed. Certainly quicker than if transported from a distance - without the assistance of the 13 tonne engines the Dublin Fire Brigade has today. Thankfully (as far as we know), it was never needed to deal with threats to the National Museum's collonaded facade (or indeed its collections)....

Doctor Atkins, District Asylum
Description: A stream of irreverent thoughts came into my head when I saw the title to this shot from Poole! Is he perhaps an inmate or the attendant? Does he make "Dr. Atkins Patented Nerve Powders for Lunatic conditions"? No doubt the esteemed Dr. was a healer who laboured to bring solace to those with mental illness but who was he and what asylum did he work at? And we have answers to all our questions. The consensus is that this is Dr Ringrose Atkins, the Resident Medical Superintendent of Waterford District Asylum (an institution we have visited before). Dr Atkins was from a Cork family (which apparently included several generations of medical professionals), and he was appointed to the position in Waterford in 1878. Evidently he was also president of the YMCA and involved in the temperance movement. He died in his late 40s from complications arising from appendicitis. Given that the 1898 edition of the Journal of Psychiatry records his death as occuring that February, it seems we'll need to tweak the catalogue date range for this image..... Photographer: A. H.

Sir Walter Raleigh, cottage at Youghal
Description: From the academic Sir John P. Mahaffy to his more famous knightly colleague Sir Walter Raleigh and a cottage in County Cork! My definition of a cottage and Raleigh's definition would be many miles (or rooms and windows) apart it seems. I thought that the only remaining reminder of Raleigh was Tournafulla in Limerick where his troops decimated the population after the Desmond rebellion...? Based on today's insights, it seems possible that this image was taken while the house (known as Myrtle Grove) was owned by the Blake family; some members of whom could perhaps be captured in the windows.....

Posers in the sunny South East

It is Wexford but taken from the other bank of the Slaney and showing the town and its skyline in the distance.

Description: This somehow familiar (yet so far unidentified) castle on the shore of the sea or an estuary is todays fare. I know I've seen it before, and have an idea where it might be, but I would be guessing. Whereas it is reasonable to expect that the experts out there can give a definitive location! Who will be first? The answer to the second question (who will be first) is derangedlemur. The answer to the first question (where is this) is Blackrock Castle in Cork Harbour. The original 16th century fort on this site was redeveloped as a castle in the 17th century, but was damaged by fire and rebuilt in the 18th century. The castle was nearly entirely destroyed (again by fire) and substantially redeveloped in the early 19th century. It was repurposed as an astronomical observatory and museum in more recent years. (The larger towers close to the water are part of the original foundation/structure)....

Main Street North, Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry
Description: Where better to go on a Friday than the Kingdom of Kerry, Cahirciveen to be precise. We are right on the Wild Atlantic Way and I bet all of the people we see in this photo would be fascinated by the whole concept of it! As today's commentators have noted, the same view today is almost identical - except for the cars of course - with most the buildings surviving. The StreetView car didn't pass on a market day however - as French may have done at the turn of the century (as hinted by the bustle in the town)....

Lady Louise's Bridge, Lismore, Co. Waterford
Description: Today we have a very pleasant landscape from Waterford. I know Lismore is famous for the Munster Blackwater, but this river seems far too small to be it? All details on Lady Louise will also be very welcome. With thanks especially to Jan Hilbrand Brink, Bernard Healy and beachcomberaustralia we've learned that Lady Louisa Caroline Cavendish (1835-1907) was the eldest daughter of the 7th Duke of Devonshire, whose family had acquired Lismore Castle in the 18th century. Lady Louisa apparently took over the household at a young age, and was responsible for laying out a number of walks around the demesne - clearly including the one that crossed this footbridge. O Mac and Niall McAuley have pinpointed it to within a mile or so of Lismore Castle - although now only the stone or concrete abutments remain...

Trinity College, Botany Bay, Dublin City
Description: I have never heard of "Botany Bay" in the context of Trinity College. Of course the real Botany Bay holds an important position in Irish history - more for transportation of convicts rather than anything to do with its botanic beauty. I wonder how and when this square obtained its name? .... "Asked and answered" as they say. Beachcomberaustralia sourced an amazing "letter to the editor" entry from an 1875 edition of the Australian Town and Country Journal. Which offers an entertaining answer to the question. The story goes that this area of the college was prone to flooding (and worse). And students would throw undesirable visitors into the quagmire. As a type of punishment - which "some wag" likened to transporting undesirables to Botany Bay in what were then the penal colonies....

Lady's Island, Co. Wexford
Description: Believe it or not this photo was selected because it was felt that it would sit well in our "Focus on our Photographers" album. I will leave it up to you to discover the reason for its inclusion. As a bonus we have a lovely photo of Lady's Island. As quickly spotted by beachcomberaustralia, Niall McAuley and others, this image of the village and church of Lady's Island (at least partially through the gate arch of Lady's Island Castle) includes pieces of photographic kit in the right foreground. If the spare lens didn't give it away, as Niall points-out, we've seen this box a few times before. On this occasion it has followed French to the site of a(nother) holy well on Lady's Island Lake...

Openluchtschool van Diesterweg's Hulpkas, 1906 | Open-air school from Diesterweg's Hulpkas, 1906
Description: Kinderen poseren met hun begeleiders, 1906. "Diesterweg’s Hulpkas voor Behoeftige Schoolkinderen" (Antwerpen) richtte in 1904 een van de eerste openluchtscholen ter wereld op, de “Diesterweg's Bestendige Schoolkolonie” te Kalmthout. Zwakkere kinderen uit de Antwerpse stadsscholen konden er gedurende een aantal maanden van een kuur genieten. De leerplicht werd in 1914 in België ingevoerd. Children pose with their teachers, 1906. "Diesterweg’s Hulpkas voor Behoeftige Schoolkinderen", a childcare organisation founded by teachers of the Antwerp city schools to assist pupils of poor families, also started with one of the first open air schools in history at Kalmthout. Children with poor health were allowed to spend several months in the open air school. Compulsory education was implemented in Belgium in 1914. Liberaal Archief / Collectie Kartons.

Croagh Patrick, Westport, Co. Mayo and a whole lot more.
Description: Down the Wesht today to Co.Mayo, God help us, with a distant view of Irelands Holy Mountain and a whole lot more! This lovely Royal sized glass plate has some excellent detail on the coastal location, with mixed rolling stock on a railway siding to add to the interest. We may not have a dog, but we do have a horse in this landscape - otherwise largely empty of signs of life. While today's contributors have identified several of the buildings visible between Westport Harbour and Croagh Patrick (including the bridge to Rossbeg and some of the larger houses on the landform), they all date to the early 19th century. And so are not much help in dating the image. The general consensus though is that the Midland Great Western Railway rolling-stock in the foreground probably dates to the latter-half of the date range. Perhaps more likely to be c.1900 than mid-19th century.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely latter half of this range.

Description: This beautiful landscape of Lough Inagh in Connemara in cabinet size by Lawrence is todays image! I always wondered about the name 'Recess' and where it came from.

A fine set of fetlocks: Commissioned by Mr. T. Widger
Description: The full title on this is "Meet at Gracedieu(?) - commissioned by Mr. T. Widger". Maybe Mr. Widger rode to the hunt, and perhaps wanted an image of both he and his steed recorded for posterity(?) It certainly is a fine shot of the pair, and there appears to be a "Big House" in the background. There is an area in Waterford called Gracedieu but was that named after a house or vice versa? It does sound familiar.... The consensus is that this is a member of the Widger family from Waterford. Pretty much all of whom (of working-age) were recorded in the 1911 census as horse-dealers or trainers. The suggestion is that Poole captured this image at Grace Dieu estate, a short distance south of Waterford, and which we have visited before. Based on similar images in the catalogue, and the fashions visible, it seems likely this dates to the first decade or so of the 20th century.... Photographer: A. H.

Sunshine, shadows, leafy trees and a fountain in Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
Description: In what appears to be a lovely sunny afternoon in Blessington, when the photographer captures a beautiful image of the Market Hall and Monument/Fountain. This is a beautiful area - some of which has been changed completely when a nearby valley was flooded to provide water and power to the nearby Dublin region! Apart from the "missing belfry" that [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] noted, some of the discussion today was on how recognisable the same scene is today. Also noted was that the local names of the monument and fountain seem to vary - with most sources refering to it as the "Downshire Monument", at at least some as the "Boyle Monument". Whatever the proper title, it seems likely this view of the monument and market house was captured in the first-half (rather than latter-half) of the 1900s-1930s range....

Dunluce Castle, Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim
Description: We are somewhat regular visitors to Antrim's Causeway Coast, but had not visited Dunluce Castle before. As BeachcomberAustralia points-out, we've ridden the Giant's Causeway Tramway before - the "third rail" of which we see here. It is this third rail that helps date the image in fact, as beachcomberaustralia tells us that it was replaced with overhead wires in 1899. A move that is perhaps unsurprising given the danger it posed - electrocuting at least one unfortunate visitor....

The Grand Stand Hotel, Curragh Camp
Description: The deep treasure chest that is the Lawrence Collection is the gift that keeps on giving. Today we are treated to a lovely cabinet sized plate of the Grand Stand Hotel at the Curragh Racecourse in County Kildare. The whole racing industry has changed radically since this shot was taken by Mr. French, but then the whole world has changed... ... And this area has changed. To the extent that I've added this image to our "no longer standing" album. While BeachcomberAustralia highlights that at least some of the building on the left survives (under the Curragh grandstand), and the hotel on the right survived until the last decade (til the streetview car passed-by in 2009 ), we've since learned that the hotel is now entirely demolished.

Who will be first to identify them and give us a location - The Lemur, Sharon, Niall, That guy from the land down under? Lets go.... And indeed it was Niall (quickly corroborated by Stuart) who gave us the location - as the church and abbey at Cong, County Meath.

This beautiful, charming Royal Plate image of Kinnetty (?) looks as though "peace comes dropping slow" there each day and rests until midnight. Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Possibly c.1890-1900. NLI Ref: L_ROY_09962 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Renmore Barracks, Galway City - once home to the Connaught Rangers.
Description: The home station of the Connaught Rangers Regiment of the British Army is today's image from the Lawrence Collection. Once a proud and distinguished regiment with many battle honours, it became famous in the Irish context when members of the regiment mutinied in response to the 1916 uprising and the subsequent execution of the leaders. While the StreetView driver wasn't brave enough to approach the guard gate, the view from the road outside still matches-up. The NIAH entries provided by Niall McAuley (on the magazine and church) suggest c.1880 as the lower-bound for the image date range. And maybe even an upper-bound not long after (as everything does look spanking new).... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely after c.1880 NLI Ref: L_ROY_00778 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Viscount FitzGibbon who fell at the
Description: We may have visited this scene before if not this photograph. A fine glass plate from the Eason Collection of Viscount Fitzgibbon which stood opposite Shannon Rowing Club on Sarsfields Bridge over the river Shannon! I am curious to know what that stack/chimney is to the left rere of the statue?... Though we've seen this statue before (from other angles), this vantage gives us a better view of the plaque. It reads: "To commemorate the bravery of / Viscount Fitzgibbon / 8th Royal Irish Hussars / & of his gallant companions in arms / natives of the county & city of limerick / who glouriously fell in the Crimean War". As per the various contributions, Fitzgibbon was reported 'missing presumed dead' during the Charge of the Light Brigade, seemingly inspiring Rudyard Kipling’s short story ‘The Man Who Was’. The statue was blown-up by the IRA in 1930, and a monument to the events of 1916 later placed on the plinth. The cannon are still apparently outside the Harbour Master's office... Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Though before June 1930.

Marconi Calling
Description: Marconi Station Clifden, Connemara I received a lovely gift of a biography on Marconi at Christmas. The book by Marc Raboy is subtitled "The man who networked the world". What an interesting man he was, I was surprised to learn about his Irish roots and connections. He was as famous in his time as any of today's technology leaders. Today's inputs confirmed just how historically important this relatively remote patch of bog-land was. From the Alcock and Brown transatlantic flight of 1919, to the Marconi station which opened in 1907. The video offered by beachcomberaustralia (something of a distant Marconi rellie), and the map offered by DannyM8 give us sense of the immense scale of the buildings and telegraph pole structures in the rearground of this shot. Something which is hard to fathom given the rural nature of Bill Bartlett's contemporary image from almost the same spot..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely c.1907-1914 (based on station's inauguration date of Oct 1907).
