Try to find the date or year when this image was made.
When I was young and I visited Dublin City with my parents we always stopped in Abbey Street to look at the windows of the Irish Independent and the Evening Herald. There were about 6 or 8 windows which displayed the photographs taken by the staff photographers over the last week. This Poole photo is very similar, we see some photos on display, I presume the most recent and the most topical. I wonder have we seen any of them on this stream?

And so it seems that we have seen some of these "showcase" images on the stream before (including themes horsey and military). Other images gracing the frontage of 34 The Mall (which hasn't changed much), were also identified in the catalogue....

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Owen, I see him too. The date on "Bobs" photo is between ca. 1901 and 1954 I presume it can now be changed to - between 1901 and May 11th 1910.

    Window has Kodaks and Sol----- (maybe solutions) Kodak is the plural, bring back the signwriter. A.H.Poole also had a studio beside Reginald's Tower a photograph is there someplace.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] I wonder if both premises were operational at the same time? https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]

    The Irish Flag and the house to the right of this photo were discussed here before. For the life of me I cannot remember why, where or when?

    There is an earlier photo of 34 The Mall with different display boards outside, and without the florid Poole Photographer sign. Unhappily not megazoomable - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000031452/Home

    The house to the right (no. 33) was at one time the home of the Wolfe Tone Club. The tricolour was flown there for the first time in 1848. In the 1911 census Poole's studio was listed as number 12. Number 11, next door (the current #33), was the residence of Alfred Hodkinson (a decorator) & family (explaining the "Hod House" in fairly mod script). Another Poole/Hodkinson connection is the Horsewood Altar: commissioned by Mr. H, photographed by Mr. P.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/] Poole moved to 34 The Mall in 1889 and I think its likely he had several premises operating at the same time. He was at 11 The Mall in 1886 and in Rose Lane before that. From the Waterford News August 6, 1886 A.H. Poole Waterford News Aug. 6 1886

    Thanks all - I've updated the map, description, tags, etc - and even tweaked the date range for the 'Bobs' image. I shouldn't however have gone peering in windows on megazoom (not this late at night anyway) - as I spotted someone peering back :) Night night! www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/25136980491/

    EDIT: Unless I am imagining them, could the face(s?) at the window of the bow-fronted building be the Hodkinson children?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland I see creepy children too. Looks like two of them. Seems a safe bet they are two of the three Hodkinson kids.

    Yes, they are the children ,(Dorrie and Fred) of my granduncle, Alfred. Alfred was a Church & House Decorator originally from Limerick, where members of the family still reside and are still in the business of Church Decoration.
