This is the morning after the night before! Our Pic of the Day for 10 January was a Fancy Dress Ball at Curraghmore House, Portlaw, Co. Waterford. This was the hunt held the next day. At least some of these people may have been in costume in the other photo, and it would be interesting to find them. It's frustrating that for a Poole Collection photo, the quality of this one is not great, so that won't make it easy!

    It just shows how clothes maketh the man or woman, these people look nothing like those from the evening before! I actually misplaced my first note and meant to put it where Harborindiana from LA put his one on Anton Mesmer, I think that that is the guy in the Chinese robes with the imitation bald head. Chinese men in that age had to wear pigtails to show that they were not of the ruling Manchu dynasty!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Fantastic! Was your grandad indoor or outdoor staff, do you know? We have this fantastic shot of Curraghmore's household staff, circa 1905. (And either way if we made you smile, our work is done!)

    Marvellous Curraghmore photos! I'd love to go there. My Scots ancestors came to Waterford with Cromwell. They worked on the estate until the mid 1850s. George Thompson, the Marquis's groom, was present when the Marquis was thrown from his horse and died, an event described in the memoirs of the Marchioness www.archive.org/stream/storyoftwonoblel03hare/storyoftwon... The next Marquis though horse racing sinful, closed the large stables and the Thompsons were unemployed. They left for New Zealand and Canada soon afterwards.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/yvonnert Thank you, Yvonne. Sad that your ancestors were at the mercy of their employer's beliefs about horses. On the other hand, they might not otherwise have emigrated and set up home and families all over the world - and you might never have been commenting on these photos from Australia! :)
