The convoluted title on this image would lead us to believe that this was taken outside Kilcornan House in Clarinbridge, Co. Galway, but it looks more like a street scene elsewhere. What can we find out about the photo, the people, and the place?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Around the corner. I have added them both to my slow-going effort to map the "out foreign" Dillon photos. (I may add the non-Dillon foreign photos to the map too, but at the rate I'm going that may take a while.)

    Flickr is sometimes amazing! Reverse-ish view (like CLON594 above) slightly later (??) 'cos of more insulators on the telegraph pole - https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/46786589234/ via https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

    Penmaenmawr translates to top of big stone. Pen = top. maen = stone. mawr = big.

    I came on the location ages ago when we had another Dillon in Wales image location to solve.

    Seems later than the other shots, as it has those decorative railings above the shop front (Gloves and Milliners)

    As a pathologist in the 1970s I used to see women with “corset groves”, I presume made by their corsets squeezing their lower ribs into their liver.

    Slightly accidentally, I can report that Edith, Ethel and Georgianna Dillon were staying in Llys Arvon, Fern Brook Road Penmaenmawr on 17th August 1900. They aren't there the week before or after.
