A double image of a double door in a church somewhere in Ireland. Given the extreme age of the stereo pairs collection some of the images, such as this one, are remarkably clear and 'new' looking!
Early collaboration from B-59
identified this as Sligo Cathedral
. As the cathedral opened in 1874, it seems likely this image dates to the mid- or late-1870s at the earliest. As well as helping identify the subjects of the "high relief"
work in the tympanum
today's other eagle-eyed contributors point out that this image is actually mirrored from reality
