A lovely Eason image showing the Square in Navan, Co. Meath and looking down Trimgate Street. There is so much to see from the lamp and water pump front and centre to the early motor car parked on the right hand side. A very changed scene today with a lot more traffic and few horses about if any!
The main learning on this image (apart from the interesting information on the businesses pictured - including the connections of the McKeever drapers) was on the date. Niall McAuley
plausibly suggests, based on the step ladder and other cues/clues, that this nearby Eason shot
was taken on the same day. It can be confidently dated to 1912 (given the posters visible), fairly firmly suggesting that this image also dates from the same period.....
