Triangular green, railed, with square tapered column inscribed Corry on 6-step base, 2-storey public buildings 3-storey terraced streets, in background wooded hills in far background.
It fascinates me that an old photo like this one can raise so many interesting stories. Such as, a duel in the Irish parliament involving Henry Grattan, water fountains in Newry, Dun Laoghaire and Australia and a Baron to the Throne of Poland in the reign of King Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
It is worth reading all the comments and the associated link.
