To the Lawrence Collection today, and a very interesting image of Main Street in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. This would be a good shot at any time, but the coach with top-hatted driver and footman, and the police/army escort suggests a big event? What was going on, and might that help to establish the date it was taken?
