Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.

Not to do with your photo directly, but a very good read.
28 February 1921: Six Volunteers were executed by the British Army in Victoria Barracks, Cork on this day. The men were shot by firing squad.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] So is this the same gateway as in this photo?
http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland I believe so. The sign is on the outer of the two arches you see in street view.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] The poor Guard Room looks rather the worse for wear...
cant find any record for the date of the fire.
They could be family!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Would imagine so. Mother and daughter perhaps?
P.S. Just want to wish you all a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas wherever you are! Talk to you in the New Year... :)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland And the same to you young lady
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] And the same to you, slightly older gentleman! ;)
My Mom was born in 1925. So they could be an Aunt and a cousin!
Merry Christmas. And Feliz Navidad to everyone!
Victoria Barracks, Cork was burnt by retreating anti-treaty forces early August 1922.
Mom said that her Auntie Nonie and her husband rescued a table from the barracks after the fire!
Ooh. One to talk to the family about over (the) Christmas. Yes [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] tis the same gate (that's the guard house in the background). I concur with [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] on the date. Barracks was burned in August 1922.
(EDIT: Photo was probably taken by Hogan on 9 August, as part of this series. Carol wasn't it in the "witness to war" collection...?)
Like this so vintage
Interesting story suggested with the smiling people and the word "dead" showing up on the sign
that women look so Susan Boyle ;)
Working with a smile, love it :)
