    Great town, lots to see with the Lakes of Killarney just down the street. Lots of entertainment and many, many nice stores to shop in. We have always like it there and have stayed in a hotel just down the street sitting on the edge of the Lake. M Maloney

    Where is everybody? Usually there are lots of comments by the time the photo gets to me.

    This could be a small town in Texas at that time as well!

    I noted a tall lamp post which looks like an electric light. Very early for electric lights? No! Killarney Electric Lighting Order, 1891

    In nearby Coolclogher in 1901, we can observe a Mill, a Mr. Leahy, and two Electrical Engineers.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley Had a good zoom in on it and it certainly is a very impressive lamp post, especially around the base which looks very ornate...

    This reverse view in the archive must be later, as it has telephone poles.

    This photo is rather interesting in comparison to how College Street in Killarney looks nowadays. I wish more photos like this existed in the world.
