While yesterdays boys fishing was a natural photograph, today's beautiful stereo pairs image is carefully posed with even the dog sitting obediently for the photographer. The number of well heeled tourists and visitors might indicate that the building in the background was an hotel? What can we find out about the place, the people and the location?

sharon.corbet was first to identify this as the Woodenbridge Hotel in County Wicklow. Also/fomerly known as Wooden Bridge Inn or Putland Arms Hotel, the fashions on show would seem to suggest that this was captured towards the middle/end of the 1860-1880s range...

    I think the photo may be left-right flipped - looking at streetview as well as other photos, the bay window capped end is on the right.

    I wonder if the Arms on the sign (noted at the three trees above) are the Putland Arms?

    The doggie appears to be a Staffordshire bull Terrier. Having the larger American Staffordshire Terrier at home, I can't miss that classic stance and chest. The best, most lovable dogs! (at least in our opinion in our home).
