Have a happy Bloomsday!

    He looks as if he is posing for a profile on a coin already.

    This photograph came to us in an envelope that said: “This envelope contains a faded print of photograph (taken by Willie Pearse) of Mary Brigid Pearse, Patrick Pearse, Mrs. Pearse, Alfred Magloughlin (Alfred Ignatius McGloughlin, married to Emily Pearse in 1884), Margaret Brady (cousin) and Margaret Pearse”. I've put notes on some of the people above, but would appreciate confirmation of which woman is Margaret Mary Pearse. I think it's the woman at the left?

    from a quick look at her entry in Wikipedia, the photo would indicate that the woman standing on right is MM Pearse

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley Yes, he seems to have preferred his right profile. Was there something wrong with the other side of his head? https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3557558091/in/photostream/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/10465166105/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/439082939/

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia You know the way in history books he seems a bit of a cardboard character with no depth to him? I think we may have stumbled on something here...

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet Fascinating! A version of this photo is no. 3 in their slide show. I wonder if the good book has more information about it ...

    Padraigh Pearse had strabismus. I have the same issue and I dislike being photographed full face or from the affected side. This is a great picture!

    By the way, people with strabismus can become very good at archery and target shooting. It’s actually easier to aim if you know your weapon and your eyes. You will be aiming with the stronger eye. For me, long guns and the classic long bow worked just fine. I had such a hard time with pistols that my instructor gave up. It was my step father. My mother who was similarly afflicted was an excellent shot.
