This magnificent shot of a magnificent bridge in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare was taken by Mr. French for the Lawrence Collection. The unusual structure fills that great height to perfection, and must have delighted the engineer who designed and constructed it?
The engineer (according to our contributors, the NIAH
) was John Hill, who built the structure in 1850...

Without the fellow on top, it is difficult to get a sense of the scale. In 2012 via https://www.flickr.com/photos/swieler/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/swieler/7084075043/
It seems to be relatively unknown and unsigned - www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/a-spectacle-1.925831
Entirely unremarkable from road level in Streetview. Named on the OSI 25" at GeoHive.
The ivy pattern here looks similar to STP_1907 which is definitely before 1883. More overgrown in L_CAB_06204 and in L_CAB_06203 with some pre-1900 fashion (top hats and whatever that vampire lady is wearing). Even more overgrown in L_CAB_08831, in which several gents are sporting straw hats, so probably after 1900. No ivy in this 1890-1910 Mason in the archive, M40/26. Was the ivy removed, or I could be missing the fact that one side has ivy and the other doesn't? Yes, ivy pics have a pole at left, ivyless have a pole at right. The house visible through the ivyless arch suggests those are looking East, so this one is looking West.

Nice photo, nice title.
they had some holes left in the inventory, hence the circle above the water and below the walkway.
