Laurence by Lawrence? Not quite (as Mr. French was the photographer), but this is a view that we can still replicate. Apart from the intrusion of the ubiquitous car that is. Drogheda is a town with a long and varied history, and it is only right that we should feature the remaining gate tower on its eastern side!

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Catalogue range c.1865 - 1914 (probably later in range given businesses visible)

NLI Ref: L_ROY_09995

    Through the gate, I see McCullough, Tea and Wine, Spirits. In the 1911 census, I see Patrick McCullough, 59, Poor Rate Collector and Publican.

    The premises at left are labelled "Motor &" and has ads for cycles. On Palace Street (running to our left), I see Philip Fulham cycle and motor agent.

    L_ROY_09994 could be the same day... includes a motor car, AI-8, which the 1911-12 motor directory says belonged to George H. Daly of Donecarney, Drogheda, a Justice of the Peace.

    How about the Geograph 1983 vintage? Or the Geograph 1970 vintage? Or the "Flickr is Amazing" 2014 vintage from [] :)
