Going for a pint?
Description: After all the looking up yesterday and the struggle to even put the right numbers on houses we felt that everybody needed a wee bit of refreshment, and so a visit to St. James’s Gate and the Guinness Brewery was called for. For that reason, we can now look down and see the entire area surrounding the Brewery with areas north and south of the Liffey as a bonus!

Rathmines in Bohernabreena?
Description: The Rathmines Waterworks in Bohernabreena is the subject of today's image from the Lawrence Collection and is a little bit hard to figure out? The water on the left appears to be a reservoir/lake, while that on the right an outflow/inflow channel? What it looks like today will be interesting to see.

Chief Secretary's Lodge now Deerfield, Phoenix Park, Dublin.
Description: Another day in the Phoenix Park is always welcome, especially for any of us living more than 5 Km from there in this time of "lock down". I think I know some of the history of this house, but I am very happy to wait and read the facts you discover before I comment. I have used this strategy before and it has served me well, in that most times what I thought I knew was in fact incorrect. We live and learn! Over to you. +++ UPDATE +++ Really enjoyable stream of comments below that I would encourage you to read – arguments about official buildings in the Phoenix Park, diplomatic relations (FURIOUS Irish Bishops!), missing conservatories, windows that don't match. Not to mention a “blood-stained coat left under the drawing-room couch”...

The job is OXO!
Description: I know, I know! Your deja vus are having a bad case of deja vu, but this photograph of Harcourt Street Station was too good to pass. There is so much to see here, the station itself, the luggage trolleys, the fashion, and the advertising hoardings. The messenger boy’s bicycle parked at the footpath is a real reminder of days gone by, and cheeky devils flying about the streets with their loads for delivery! +++ UPDATE +++ Gorgeous posters in this one! And very helpful they were too. Dates for the fillum Monte Carlo (“As Intimate as a Lady’s Boudoir”, if you don't mind!) in the Irish Times and an excursion to Tramore gave us a really close date of in or around early August 1931.

Bare feet and brown boots in Limavady
Description: The whole town of Limavady appears to have come out to pose for the photographer in this image. One man even brought his motorcycle, or what we used to call them back in the day "his autocycle"! Boys and girls in their best bib and tucker, some with packages and one with a bag, but nary a sign of a dog!!

Shuttered shop on the corner of Alexander Street
Description: All these celebrations, and the sherry provided by the Library Hierarchy have given me a hangover, so back to the sobriety of the Poole Collection for today's image. House in Alexander Street commissioned by W. McCoy shows us a fine establishment with lots of potential, and two resident corner boys. What am I offered? +++ UPDATE +++ Well done to you all on reconstructing the lives and livelihoods of those families living and working around Alexander Street. And a special thank you to Paul O'Farrell, who has long been our roving Waterford Correspondent, for establishing a solid enough date for this photograph of in and around 1895. Photographer: A. H.

FLYING HIGH IN CELEBRATION – 90 MILLION VIEWS
Description: Today we are celebrating having reached 90,000,000 views, and to mark the occasion we have been given access to the aerial photography of Alexander “Monkey” Morgan. So for today what could be better than to have a parade, a St. Patrick’s Day Parade to be sure, but with a wonderful view of Dublin’s city centre from high in the sky. Which is where Monkey Morgan was of course! As we post his images in the future, it is going to pose its own challenges seeing places from a very different PoV!!!! +++ UPDATE +++ I think it's safe to say that we're going to very much enjoy the lofty point of view that Monkey Morgan’s photos will give us. We've established the exact date for this one – Thursday, 17 March 1955, and also that the parade started from St. Stephen’s Green at 11am. It went up one side of O'Connell Street, and then back down the other, which certainly seems to give better value to spectators than modern parades. You couldn't miss a thing that way. And 'twas far from a St. Patrick's Festival the parade was in those days. It was sombrely called the Industries Parade, and was organised by the National Agricultural and Industrial Development Association. We found out there were about 250,000 spectators on this day, and thanks to Sharon Corbet, we know there was “a bit of an incident”!

Is Belfast Fish, Flesh or Fowl?
Description: A wonderful Eason image for today with High Street, Belfast in all its glory. Trams, carriages, sidecars, pedestrians, all on a long, busy High Street with awnings out to protect the windows from the sun. Looking at the long dresses of the ladies, I suspect that it was taken at the early part of the date range – if not before? One thing for sure, there are no microwave hairdo's on display :-) Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Between 1900-1920 NLI Ref: Eas 417 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Lucan, the most exotic place for taking the waters!
Description: Growing up and reading that members of the nobility would travel to far off places to “Take the waters”, it seemed that it was unlikely that we would have something similar close by. Lisdoonvarna in the midst of the wonderful Burren seemed to be an aberration, but due to the nature of the place it seemed understandable. Lucan on the other hand, on the outskirts of Dublin City, might not have been seen in the same light, but here is proof positive that indeed there was a Spa in Lucan.

Main Street with a line running through it!
Description: Main Street, Drimoleague, Co. Cork has a rather unusual look to it, with the railway station and line on the one side, and the premises on the other?

Hiding your Granny behind the gate?
Description: St. James’ Villa, Malahide in North County Dublin appears to be all alone in the field, but that will have changed dramatically in the intervening years! A gentleman with two young ladies, and what appears to be an older lady, pose for this Eason image. Given that the Eason Collection photographs were generally intended for use as postcards, one wonders what was the significance of this house and/or the family? +++ UPDATE +++ Some beautiful Malahide family reconstructions in evidence here. Everyone seemed to enjoy this one, and a special thank you, An Poc Ar Buile, for your deep dive into newspapers, allowing you to show changes of ownership for this lovely house, St James' Villa, in 1902, 1905, and 1910 (when it was sold as part of the estate of William Parkinson). Bernard Healy then leapt into the fray with evidence about the Parkinson family (not all happy) from family history records.

Rocky Road to Roundstone Retreat
Description: The Monastery in Roundstone cannot complain at the lack of stone for building! Rocks galore all round and on the other side of the bay, make this a fairly bleak place to found a monastery. The fortified gate is interesting. Was this a protection against Vikings, pirates, or other raiders? We have been to Roundstone recently but this lovely Lawrence image is well worth the return visit. +++ UPDATE +++ Around the rugged rocks, you ragged rascals ran – trying to differentiate between two alleged monasteries in Roundstone, not helped by apparently conflicting dates on 6" maps and the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage. Bernard Healy confirmed that “our” monastery was definitely Franciscan, noting that cartographers may have been confusing it with a much earlier Dominican establishment.

Waiting for Godot?
Description: It is many years since Morning Mary was in Ballina and even longer since she was in Ardnaree but this sight, apart from the people, is very familiar. On the “wrong” side of the river from the bulk of the town, it was the site of a famous boxing club, but close to many of the attractions of Ballina of that time!

To the Manor born
Description: The Manor of St. John has that classic sound to it! A place built on the site of a monastery perhaps, or is that the name of the townland? Waterford, where Mr. Poole took so many of his photographs, has some wonderful townland names including Morning Mary's personal favourite “Christendom”, so perhaps “St. John” is yet another?

Baby beneath the thatch
Description: If I had been told that this was an image from one of the far flung colonies of the British Empire, rather than Glena Cottage in Killarney, that would have been credible! A very fine “cottage” with the finest thatch Morning Mary has ever seen! A fine house with picture windows, beautiful location, and a happy group where one of the women appears to be holding a baby! The Stereo Pairs Collection never fails to delight!

A jewel in the crown
Description: It has been a long time since we had an image from the Wiltshire Collection, so an early morning view of Iveagh House seems like a great way to redress that loss! This is one of Morning Mary’s favourite buildings in Dublin and the interior is even better than it’s splendid exterior! +++ UPDATE +++ We had a fabulously ghosty story from Bernard Healy about Holy Thursdays in Dublin, and the widespread belief that a cross appeared in one of the windows of Iveagh House – so widespread that crowds used to gather outside in the hopes of seeing the cross. An article in the Evening Herald newspaper from June 1976 confirmed this long-held Dublin belief. Sadly, it seems it was just a great story, and nothing but “a natural flaw in the original glass caused the vision of the cross”. And do read beachcomber australia's story from Trove for a flaming example of a scathing Edwardian burn against Lord Iveagh and his decorating notions...

The Monastery, Kildare
Description: I love the statue in the skylight over the door in this Eason photo of The Monastery in County Kildare.

Safe harbour in Roundstone.
Description: We will begin this week with an image of Roundstone in Co. Galway, with crops in the fields and telephone/graph wires draped across the landscape. The children are out and about which probably means that the schools are on holiday, while there are few boats in the harbour, meaning that the fishing boats are out?

We came across a cross.
Description: While searching the archive, I came across this photograph of a cross in stereo, and I immediately said to myself, they will never find the location! The catalogue description is equally nondescript. It says “Small rude stone cross of 1 piece” which must be one of the vaguest descriptions in the whole catalogue. Excellent, I thought, this is as tough as it gets. Good luck with the detective work!

Rocky beauties
Description: To end a bizarre week, we have this charming image captured during a visit by the Clonbrocks to the Aran Islands. The stub of an ancient cross, set among the rocky fields, and emphasising its age, there are two young locals – a lad and a lassie. What can we find out about it, and when was it taken? +++ UPDATE +++ Well, the best thing we found out about this photograph is that we need to horizontally flip it in our catalogue. The second-best thing is that it was taken before “the twenty-one cottages were built in 1914”. (Thank you, Mike, you're always great for the island information.)

The Model School in Enniscorthy
Description: The Model School sounds like a school in miniature, but there are quite a few throughout the country. Some of them are large institutions like this one in Enniscorthy, others are smaller. But they all appear to have been excellent places of education. Morning Mary attended one, and has many happy memories made rosier by the passage of time, no doubt! +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks, Domhnall Sioradáin, for explaining that Model Schools were part of the original model (Domhnall couldn't resist!) for national primary education in Ireland, 1831. Model schools were set up, and older bright pupils would act as monitor apprentices and later become teachers. In 1870, model schools were replaced by 2-year residential training colleges, such as Carysfort in Dublin.

The Bailey of the Alps?
Description: At fist glance, this image of the Bailey Light at Howth looks as if it is surrounded by vast mountains and rocky slopes. Instead it appears that a very poor effort at old style photo shopping has taken place or that the plate – a fine Royal sized plate has deteriorated dramatically.

An ecclesiastical complex among the tussocks
Description: The title sums this one up! An ecclesiastical complex in the midst of tussocks of grass. Where, when, and what is it like now? I suspect that this is one that will be joining the “No longer standing” category? +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks to Sharon Corbet's prodigious memory, it turns out that we've visited this location before. It's the Hevey Institute in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. But sure lookit, while it might have been less craic for all of you, it means that another one of our photographs is now Location Identifed rather than languishing in our catalogue as “Institutional building, nine bays wide, (three under pediment of central element) with central tower”. So that can't be bad...

Water under the bridge
Description: Dutchy and Jim captured a beauty here with lovely creamy water and a fine three arched bridge somewhere in Ireland!

Beetles, points and Foynes.
Description: For some reason O'Dea has made the trip down to Foynes in Co. Limerick to view a "Beetle" moving an empty wagon which can only mean that a new piece of kit is being trialed? Foynes was always a small town well down the Shannon Estuary from Limerick City and the ships passed it by to get to the port in the city. This has all changed now and today Foynes is a fine deep water port taking ships that could never have navigated the winding estuary! Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Mr. Mosley and staff at your service!
Description: Since we are on a run of buildings here is a shop, apparently in Waterford with the staff standing ready to serve! Mr. Mosley had a fine shop with plenty of frontage and even some sideage but where is/was it and and what did they do for a living? Morning Mary was having some issues with WiFi earlier and though I did all this work already obviously it got lost out there in the ether. Apologies and especially to Oaktree Brian who noticed the lack of a title on the image. Photographer: A. H.

The
Description: This bank building in Ballyshannon reminds me more of the famous "Hatters Castle" in AJ Cronin's novel of the same name than any other bank I have ever seen. Somebody seems to have taken spare pieces from all over the island and stuck them together to make this confection. Is it still standing and if so what does it look like now?

Simpler days
Description: I know that across the country, wedding ceremonies are being cancelled or heavily curtailed, because of this terrible virus. It must be causing great anguish to all involved. Today, we travel back to simpler times and present a very happy looking couple, I presume on the day of their wedding. I wonder who the other two people are? Siblings? Best man and bridesmaid? I am sure we will know before the morning is out. The photograph was commissioned by Mr. Thomas Hogan of 1 Doyle Street, Waterford.

Mount Jerome Cemetery
Description: Sometimes I think it is a little bit ghoulish but I find visiting cemeteries quite fascinating! Seeing the details of those residents/citizens who have passed on to their eternal reward can give you such an insight to the place and the people that often you cannot obtain from the buildings! Mount Jerome is out there on the south side so I am not too familiar with it, and will watch with interest to see what develops!

Miss Mary O’Leary says OPEN UP!
Description: The National Library of Ireland is reopening TODAY and Miss Mary O'Leary is ready for business! This fine Clarke image taken just outside the front door of the Library is as good a way of reminding people that we are open once again after the lockdown. What is even more exciting is that this is just one of two photos we will be putting up today as this is intended to advertise the opening. Nonetheless any information on the image would be very much appreciated? If any of you are thinking of following Miss O'Leary's example and visiting us, please see this information you need.

Ladders for salmon and stairways to heaven - what next?

Where they stole Trevelyan’s corn...
Description: Since I was very young, Athenry has been a name that resonates with me. Travelling in the old steam trains to Sligo, the call “All change at Athenry” would ring out, and the name had that special appeal. I was tempted to give it the title “Low lie the fields” but that was just a bit too obvious, and as there is a Peeler in the shot, I thought a bit of crime and punishment might be more appropriate!

Passage
Description: When I saw the title in the catalogue I thought that this might not be a great shot but I am happy to post such a fine view! This is a beautiful Poole Collection image and away from the studio shots that we expect. The scene has changed somewhat over the years but not that much. I stood on those heights a few years ago watching the Tall Ships pass down to the sea, magic! Photographer: A. H.

The memorial and the Pig Buyers.

It seems familiar somehow but yet I cannot recall where or when I saw it? William John Shaw was respected by the pig buyers it seems but who was he?

Newbridge railway station
Description: Our Mr O'Dea may have recorded the decline and fall of the railway system in Ireland, but Mr. French recorded some of its earlier days. This fine image of Newbridge station in County Kildare shows French at his best. Men working on the line while a supervisor looks down from the platform. A fairly tranquil scene otherwise as people wait, but what is the man on the bottom right near the luggage doing? UPDATE: For the umpteenth time, wall posters helped us establish a fairly sound date for this photo. Thanks to sharon.corbet, BultacoFan, and suckindeesel for narrowing a 20 year time span down to May 1910, specifically after 20th May. And thank you too, BeachcomberAustralia, for reminding us about how the usage and root of words and language can vary greatly between this Northern and your Southern Hemisphere.

Profile map of Lord Howe Island attributed to H. L. Ball Surveyor and Commander of the Supply, 1788
Description: The first European sighting of Lord Howe Island was 17 February 1788. This was by Lieutenant Henry Lidgbird Ball, commander of HMS Supply while en route from Botany Bay to found a penal settlement on Norfolk Island. This watercolour profile of the island may be a copy from an original or it may be the original from which later engravings were made.

Gwynfryn, open windows, elegant lady and.... a DOG!
Description: On a day when the rain is coming down like stair rods in Dublin the Clonbrock Collection brightens it up with a lovely summer shot from Wales in the early 1900s. A young lady standing outside a terrace of houses on the village green where many of the upstairs windows are wide open to catch any breeze, and ladies are out in skirts, blouses and hats. The most attractive part of the scene, for some at least, is the fact that there is a dog on display! UPDATE: Sounding the Location Identified Klaxon, thanks to our own John Spooner ! This is not Wales, but the very picturesque Broadway in the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, England. Glad to see that the dog in the distance was appreciated. Our dog provision working group search tirelessly for canine content.

British troops leaving Cork - British carriages arriving in Dublin
Description: "Cambridge Ferry" With new carriages ex BR Derby, North Wall, Co.

Wexford on a calm day - Is actually Wicklow
Description: A beautiful "Royal" plate today from the ubiquitous Lawrence Collection with lots of boats and water on view. The boat passing the ship moored to the quay caught my attention as it is moving past the ship under power yet there is no visible sign of propulsion. Did the yachts pre WW1 have auxiliary engines?

Patiently waiting for the fall?
Description: A fine Royal Plate from the Lawrence Collection featuring a geological oddity near Kenmare in Co. Kerry. “Green Stone on Lime” is the title which probably means that it is an erratic dating from the last ice age? Is it still there intact, or has the pollution and the increased movement of people toppled what thousands of years could not do? +++ UPDATE +++ It is still outstanding in its field! And well done, that derangedlemur and that beachcomber australia, for finding this scientific description of our mighty stone wonder in The Irish Naturalist, September 1898, which would have been published around the time this photo was taken: “Carrigacappeen, a very remarkable erratic of Old Red grit, standing on a 6-foot pillar of Carboniferous Limestone, a striking example of denudation by solution since the Glacial Epoch”. We thank you, lemur and beachcomber, our very own "remarkable erratics"!

All’s well in Sunday’s Well
Description: A very rare visit to the Fergus O’Connor collection today, and to a very neat, clean, and quite striking St. Vincent’s Church in Sunday’s Well in Cork. The church looks to be attached to a religious establishment, yet is open to the general public and the people attending have dressed up for the occasion. Sunday’s Well has always intrigued me! Is there a Well for Monday, Tuesday, etc.?

Trim Castle, Trim, Co. Meath.
