We continue with Mr Fergus O'Connor today. I notice that there is a little photoshopping going on, see mid-right of the photo via Megazoom (TM). The lad sitting on the wall immediately reminded me of Dennis the Menace. Anyone else? I am hoping this one will stretch your investigation talents, but being a realist I expect identification within minutes of posting! Is that a graveyard to the far right of the photo?
And our trust in the investigative skills was not misplaced. The eagle-eyes and sharp wits of Niall McAuley
quickly identified this as the Sisters of Mercy Convent and school
in Bantry, County Cork. Niall also suggests a plausible date of 1900-1905ish (given that the various wings and additions of the complex were added on over time).....
