    "The Dog Brigade", will that be an official tag from now on? I presume there is no point in looking for a Dog?

    Guessing that the advert poster for ICEBERG SOAP (see note right side) puts this before 1912 and the Titanic disaster.

    Lots of business names here, all in the 1901 census. McGuffin at left is gone by 1911. Charlotte Hadden runs the drapers at right in 1901 census, but is only 23. The drapery does not appear in any street directory, not even 1900, 1901, 1905. I think we are very close to 1901.

    If the Marys will please excuse me, the Royal Irish Academy (our neighbours here at Library Towers) are looking for a bit of help with an image. That's if anyone has any spare time, and so long as you've finished all the eccer that the Marys have given you for today! This is the image here...

    Streetview shows a good bit of change including a Bank of Ireland at right. Can't find a date on it. Well, literally on it is the date 1824, but that is not the date it was built, or the date BoI was founded. This may have been a branch of another bank swallowed up by BoI, maybe the Hibernian?

    Carol Maddock Hi Carol, I don't do the Twitter thing so will you tell your pals in the RIA that that's a crystal radio set made by GEC who branded their early radios GECoPHONE... This particular model is a GECoPHONE junior bc1700... first made 1925ish. Hedwig Praeger died in 1924. So if it is Rosamund Praeger she'd have been in her late 50's here... amazing fingers. www.radiomuseum.org/r/general_el_gecophone_junior_bc_1700... A geophone is for listening to earthquakes and the like. A crystal radio is a simple radio receiver....

    Don't know the year, but it's early in the year, judging by the "Spring Summer" sale placard outside the ironmongers. Gas street lighting and telegraph poles.
