The Wexford contingent for this wedding ordered by Mr. John Quigley were a handsome one, well turned out and with a variety of facial expressions. The little girl sitting on the pouffe is pretty as a picture and could well still be alive?

    So was this at the Poole studio or the Imperial Hotel? You would think that someone would have given the floor a quick sweep!

    Two brothers of the groom, back left. A terrible serious looking lot, mostly.

    After a bit of effort, this would be the groom's birth record. His mother was Annie Clancy. This is his family in the 1911 census, and the reason I couldn't find him was that he was only born 24 days later...

    I would say it was in the Poole studio as the small stool that girl is seated on also is in 4558 and in the background in 3940a. https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia It does look very untidy and edge of carpet is well past it's best. Foreground looks neat and tidy in the other photos. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] The only adult with a hint of a smile is the brides sister.

    Yes it is the Poole studio. The floor was grotty three years earlier in 1946 ! - https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/49722437198/

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet I would say that's probably "Askinvillar", which is near Kiltealy in Co Wexford. A good clue that. My aunt would have gone to school with Agnes, My grandmother would have been friendly with the brides mother Rebecca (Becky). Should be able to identify a few others.
