The title on today's image from the Clonbrock Collection could be a really difficult clue from a cryptic crossword! "Wellington from F's room. Fishing" could easily be 12 down or perhaps 3 across? It is a photograph this time whereas most Clonbrock images up to now have been glass plates so after 70 million views we can begin with something different!

There general consensus is that "Wellington" is Wellington College in Berkshire, and that the "F" who has a room here is perhaps Francis Marcus Crofton - grandson of Edith Dillon.....

Thank you all for the fantastic support that enabled the NLI images to garner such an incredible level of viewing as well as the wonderful research and identification that has gone on. It has been a joy to take a small part therein!
