The clarity of this photo taken on Main Street in Larne is pretty amazing - have a zoom in if you don't believe me, but most amazing of all is the clearest news poster ever
. Hope it doesn't spoil your fun that the date is (for once) easy to read - Thursday, 17 July 1902 - but plenty of other riches in this one!

Apparently Larne had a “booming incoming tourist trade as it was the gateway to the Glens of Antrim and with a variety of hotels. People from Belfast would go to Larne by train for days out, but also there would be visitors on the ferries from Scotland on day trips – Stranraer was only 2½ hours away. This explains the ‘Irish Souvenir Warehouse’ branding which was aimed primarily at Scottish visitors.” (Thanks Bill H
