This lovely shot from the Poole Collection of the beach at Woodstown, County Waterford has a number of attractions. Soft sand, boys making sand castles, fish traps in the distance, a beached boat and a lady with an impossibly narrow waist.

Confirmed to have been taken at Woodstown Strand, the consensus is that at least some of those pictured may be members of the Poole family. Perhaps on holiday or a day-out from the busy photography studio in Waterford. Maybe around 1900 or so....

Photographer: A. H. Poole

Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford

Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Likely c.1900s.
