From the dead centre of Dublin on Friday, we make the seamless flip to the dead centre of Dunmanway, Co.Cork. I see a Murphy’s Stout advertisement which reminds me of television adverts where Murphy’s synonymous relationship with the people of Cork, played against a certain Dublin-manufactured Stout.

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865-1914 1911-1914 (thanks beachcomber australia!)

    Still, despite the plague of donkeys, Pratts Motor Spirit from the Anglo-American Oil Co. is on sale. Also ads for Raleigh Cycles, Bass, Murphy's Extra stout, Royal Irish Distilleries of Belfast, Cambridge lemonade, Curtiss & Harvey sporting cartridges (ammo?) and even Jeyes Fluid.

    aha! so there was. It was demolished in 1972. Nothing really to be gotten from the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage. A bank of ireland branch built in 1904 is just out of shot down the left side of the street I imagine.

    Re: dating - I see that there's a sign for Raleigh Cycles. Per Wikipedia, the Raleigh brand dates from 1885. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raleigh_Bicycle_Company Behind the boy is a sign for Humber Cycles but that seems to be an earlier company. Ditto, the advert for Jeyes Fluid doesn't help as the product dates to the 1870s. Cambridge Lemonade seems to have been a product of Chivers, the jam people, but I can't find a definitive date. It might take us later than the 1880s, but I can't find anything soild. Ah! Pratt's Motor Spirit - per this page that brings us to 1896 or later. www.gracesguide.co.uk/Pratts Should have spotted that sooner! I'll leave the rest of my 'workings' above for future reference.

    Woohoo! Public Lighting came to Dunmanway in 1911. The site of the power house was in the present day West End Yard, and was power by a mill race coming from near the Cotter and Keane Mill site at Kilbarry Road. The man credited with bringing electricity to Dunmanway was Mr J W Young who spent 20 years trying to prevail on the Board of Guardians to carry out some scheme to light the town. Eventually he succeeded and his work bore fruit, but alas he tragically died just before the scheme was completed. The work was carried on by his electrical engineer Mr Gillespie. The lights were switched on for the first time on January 11th 1911 and it was a brilliant success. The lighting was known as Young’s lamps and was powered by sixteen candle power bulbs, which lit the streets of the town for 6 hours each night. Domestic lighting was also available. After the untimely death of Mr Gillespie in 1927 his widow sold her interest in the powerhouse plant and electric lighting system to the Bandon Electric Lighting Company. ...

    Cambridge Lemonade doesn't get any mention in the press until 31st Augus 1901, when The Queen, The Lady's Newspaper announced: .

    With the long-continued summer we are enjoying, Messrs Chivers have been well advised to bring out their new Cambridge Lemonade, which is certainly worthy to rank alongside their welt-known table jellies, jams, etc. It has the advantage of being concentrated and consequently portable, for a tiny bottle of crystals that would easily go into a handbag, is sufficient to prepare a full quart of lemon syrup,
    Not many mentions then until a publicity campaign early May 1902, when seemingly every newspaper had adverts and announcements. Westminster Gazette - Thursday 01 May 1902
