In a New Year of promise and expectation we have the old reliable Robert French of Lawrence Photography to start us off. Here is Lynch's Castle, Shop Street in Galway on what must have been a quiet day. Today, even early in the morning this street seems to hum with life, those up early, those going home late, those that have little to do but stand around and, inevitably, the music and life of the city!

To all a Happy New Year from all at Library Towers and the Three Marys!

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: c.1880-1900 (though possibly later than c.1900, given apparent electric street lighting)
