    Looks like the young fellow with the cap has had to became the man of the house!?

    I'm more inclined to Aboraphobia's way of thinking rather than Philips. In other words to look at this photo as a snapshot of a time, a place and the people. The young lad with the cap is wearing leather leggings and given his clothing he is almost certainly the man of the house out earning his wage. Is that a Pioneer pin in his lapel? The family were typical of that time with children like steps-of stairs. They all look well cared for and when you look at the dresses, Mrs. Cullinane God bless her, probably had a sewing machine and made clothes for the girls and herself! The brick frontage to the house probably means that there is some connection to a railroad, a council, the Army or some other institution. I'll have to look up the site the next time I am down in Dunmore.

    Great stuff Mr.Cullinane, welcome on board and a lot of people would love to read what you can come up with. WooHoo Carol, all the way from Oz we have a source of info and a family connection, it doesn't get better than that.

    • 13/Apr/2012 20:05:04[email protected] Now, Mr Cullinane, thanks so much for contributing and sorry for delay in getting back to you. It's great to know that there are Powers in that house now. What I'm going to do is upload a higher res version of this photo on Monday, so that all the faces, etc. will be much clearer for you. Which boy is it that you think was your grandfather?
