Welcome back after yet another bank holiday weekend. It is raining here in Ireland today which means that our summer is down in Australia somewhere so this lovely O'Dea shot is intended to cheer us all up! The "SS Jupiter" an ancient looking steam powered vessel moored at Ringsend in Dublin back in 1961. Given that James took this photograph in 1961 we can take it that the lovely old steam ship was on the way to the knackers yard?
