A familiar bridge but a different focus. We have seen this bridge before from the other side
. But today, the focus is on the Post Office at Carnlough in Co. Antrim. The scene really has a charm all its own!
With thanks to today's contributors, there's a suggestion that this image may date from the latter half of the catalogue range - possibly early 20th rather than late 19th century. If so, those pictured at the Post Office door may be members of the McSparron family
, who were running it at the time of the 1901 and later 1911 census....
