It is a while since we had two consecutive Eason photos, today we are in Hill Street, Newry, County Down. Such a lot going on and some nice motors to be identified.

Today's contributions focused on two key business premises on Hill Street - specifically the Shelbourne Bakery which had been in business a quarter century even by the time of this shot, and the Ulster Bank opposite. Investigations on the motor vehicles pictured helped narrow the almost 40 year range to perhaps a decade or so after 1928/29....

    The man at left with the droopy moustache and filthy waistcoat has left a dirty smudge all around the bank. Perhaps he is a chimney sweep ?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia The man's exposed skin and hat certainly look clean for a chimney sweep.

    Apart from part-taking of two separate Shelbourne-made confections in recent weeks (and having a waistline to prove it), I don't have much to add here. I do wonder though whether the apparent electric street light (slung over Hill St between the bank and what is now the EWM) would help with dating. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]'s dating of the vehicle regs though would seem to firmly indicate a date in the early 1930s.
