The title in our catalogue is "Castle, Throne Room, Dublin City, Co. Dublin", which is obviously incorrect. I am not even sure that this is a Lawrence shot, at lease not a typical Lawrence shot. I will list it as it is in the system - and review later when we see what transpires during the course of your deliberations.
The overriding consensus is that this is the strand at the Murrough, by Wicklow Town. Perhaps a few yards (and a few years) separated from a reverse view we had previously
. In terms of subject, it seems likely that this image captures an early 20th century crowd enjoying the Wicklow Regatta
(first run in 1878).
