A lovely river scene from the Eason Collection to end the week with the title " Bridge near Kingstown, Co. Dublin"! I've had a look but haven't managed to see a bridge yet. Unless that is that this an "Irish Bridge"? Back in 1995 I was fortunate enough to spend several weeks in Israel/Palestine territory and while driving through the desert near the Dead Sea we passed several signs stating "Irish Bridge" and when I enquired what that was the response was a place where you might cross if the water was not too deep during floods!

    Cataloguer was having a bad day- EAS_1844 next door is titled Beechwood Avenue, Kingstown. Beechwood Avenue is in Ranelagh, near enough to todays shot. Likewise EAS_1841, EAS_1845, and Charleston Road in EAS_1842 There are a number of Kingstown/Dun Leary shots in the early 1830s which are not digitized, but are probably correct given that they show the harbour. No harbour in Ranelagh/Milltown. After this sequence of mis-titled shots, we have the nearby but correctly titled: Kenilworth Bowling Club

    from source.southdublinlibraries.ie/handle/10599/8697 South Dublin Libraries have this VERY similar view, dated "c. 1881". Spot the differences (hint: fence) See [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet/]'s comment - www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/19732202922/#comment72157...

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/32162360@N00/ Your photo makes me think it’s the weir below Orwell Rd Bridge (Waldron’s Bridge), although I can’t place either buildings as the GeoHive map viewer won’t open the 25” without a sign in. Anybody else experiencing this?

    Orwell Weir - I think the house on the hill has since been demolished anyway

    Following Sharon's comments on an earlier photo, Orwell Bank at the top of the hill was demolished in the mid 1980s, it was the Manse for Christ Church Rathgar Presbyterian church.

    The entrance to the mall race which fed the mill pond for the Dartry Dye Works is just visible on the right. That’s a strange location for the little house beside the weir, given the prevalence of flooding on that river. I wonder did it serve some function other than a dwelling?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/30369211@N00/ Yes, now I see says the blind man, hidden in plain sight. Thanks, that’s great! That oddly located house on the right is shown, ‘though not identified on the 25” Have to think it had some connection to the millrace feeding the Dartry Dye Works of old. The foot bridge over the race survives, if memory serves.
