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?

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865 - 1914

NLI Ref: L_ROY_05233

    a big day for hats, Clonmel is certainly stylish on top. the women wrapped in scarves and wraps are more dramatic than usual. mounted policeman too. this is a fabulous scene to pick apart

    Mr French seems to have been on the first floor of the Main Guard building; see behind in this streetview - goo.gl/maps/LW8nrEoLCCL3WMr97 The high view means that the distant tower of St Mary's Catholic Church is more visible.

    The Fitzhenrys are stationers on O'Connell St in the census of 1901, but have retired by 1911. RIC man in a forage cap at left means not much before 1900.

    The building on the left just beyond the 'MONSTER CLEARANCE SALE' used to be the Post Office according to this similar, older view (via megazoom) - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000324443 A new Post Office was built in 1901 in Gladstone St.; see streetview date stone - goo.gl/maps/9VXtJQ13JNBtxMkB6 Which might just imply today's photo is after 1901. Unless there was another Post Office in between.

    If the plate Roy-02101 is companion plate to Roy- 05233 based on the Mulcahys sign which seems to be a flag with paper posters pasted to it as one has a letter torn. It would have a limited life span with wind and rain. Across the street next door to Nugents at P and T Murphy Agricultural engineers an carriage repairers and motor garage. There is a sign for Imperial Rover Cycles. These are motor cycles and were made in Coventry from Nov 1902 till 1924.

Current street numbers don't match those of 1900, due to the later merging of some premises. Edit, wrong side of street, no. 73 Patrick Nugent, 1901-1911, Warehouse Or more likely, no. 75 Patrick Nugent, 1910-1930’s, Insurance & Draper

This one is really a video of several frames rather than a true gif, which wouldn't play on my iPad. Would probably have to match the images better using layers on PS or some such, but don't have that software on this device. Might have a go at a less jerky longer version if the old laptop still works.

    Were they still doing subsidized or at least untaxed passage for emigration within the Empire? I'm in Burlington, Vermont and legend has it that a lot of early Irish immigrants here took that deal, sailed to Montreal and got straight onto another boat down the Richelieu River and Lake Champlain. It was a well-trodden path that not everyone got off of at the first stop (you could sail to the foot of the lake and down the Hudson River to NYC).

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Would agree with all that. If you work from the Murphy garage with Rover motor cycles as a start date of 1903/04.. Production started Nov 1902 and possibly no signs would have been sent out in 1902 and dealers in England would have got them as they were appointed say in 1903. So post 1903 for sign. There is an R Murphy O'Connell St Clonmel listed as having a motor bicycle IH 11 on the Lennonwylie website.

    "Monster clearance sale"! To the left of the image. It appears to be on hats, with a large pile of cauliflowers out front? White centre surrounded by leaves, some sort of cabbage?
