No, Morning Mary has not gone barking mad! Mr. Poole's generosity in providing three dogs in full living detail just made her feeling like a good roll in the grass! The Poole collection really does have some fine shots with people and animals therein and this is no exception. The women with their dogs on the front porch of the family pile look very relaxed and provide a happy scene to end the week!

And while we focused somewhat in the canines in the description, it was (quite rightly) the humans who captured the attention in today's discussion. Beachcomberaustralia, sharon.corbet and Niall McAuley point out that the women from the catalogue title ("Miss Malcomson and Lady Clodagh on steps") are likely Lady Clodagh Beresford (daughter of 5th Marquess of Waterford), and a member of the Malcomson family (who had shipyards and mills in Waterford at the turn of the 20th century). Niall McAuley tells us that Lady Clodagh (1879-1957) actually popularised the name Clodagh (there were few to no girls with the given name of "Clodagh" in the country prior). Sticking with the "Clodagh" theme, Niall and O Mac offer pretty firm evidence that this image was captured at Clodagh House in Portlaw, County Waterford, where the Malcomson's lived....
