A very unusual and interesting shot from the Dillons of Clonbrock today. A series of posters on a notice board or wall with lots of juicy information regarding the Great War.
The catalogue description below implies that these posters were posted somewhere in Galway. Many date from early- or mid-August 1914:
[Galway 1914] Notices on wall , one is a proclamation by the King regarding payments, another is from the Irish agricultural organisation entitled "The War and Food Supplies" and another notice entitled "Aliens Restriction Order in Council" whereby "Aliens of German nationality are to register themselves at the nearest Police Station"
Thanks in particular today to sharon.corbet
for the transcriptions and higher-res versions of the various proclamations - they give an interesting insight into the administration's concerns at the time...
