This commercial modelling shot from the Tynan Collection shows an attractive young lady modelling a geansaí with traditional patterns. She is holding a movie camera but to be honest she doesn't look too sure about it. Perhaps, in this case, more a prop than a tool?

Photographers: Denis Tynan 1923 - 2010

    Dungloe hand knits were branded as St. Crone knitwear.

    • 28/Jun/2018 08:19:45 You might be surprised to know just how many Models become photographers or were photographers. This photo, was obviously taken by a guy. Female Photographers have a different style. I believe the camera is a 1954 to 1957 edition, which might help to narrow down the date and location.

    Please, I enjoy the intelligent discussion far too much here, so can we stop with the photographer stereotyping. It's a fine photograph of of a very fine Aran style cardigan. Thank you. Please continue.

    What about the location? The details in the NLI catalogue mention the Dungloe Co-op knitting Co., which was in Quay Road, Dungloe according to this interesting background to The Cope - . I googletootled up and down Quay Road, but found nothing relevant (love this tiny house - ), Anyone else found anything?

    the photographer must have had another quality back-up camera as the quality is superb.
