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.

MH12/9363/397 Letter from W E Goodacre.
Description: Our Education Document of the Month for December is this letter from W E Goodacre, Clerk to the Guardians of the Mansfield Poor Law Union, to the Poor Law Board, 1852. Here he describes a request for a Christmas meal for the inmates of Mansfield Workhouse. (MH 12/9363/397) “A subscription has been entered into in Mansfield to afford a treat of roast beef and plum pudding to the inmates of the workhouse on Christmas Day next [instead of the usual diet of the day]” “Great inconvenience would arise from the treat being given on the Christmas day and I was instructed to request that you would be pleased to sanction it being given on a subsequent day, either Dec 31st or January 1st.”

The memorial and the Pig Buyers.
Description: The Stereo Pairs Collection provides us with this fine memorial set against terraces of houses and one large house. 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?

On the rocks at Church Bay, Weavers Point. Crosshaven.
Description: It is quite a while since we posted a photograph from the O'Connor Collection so here goes. A scenic seaside situation showing several people enjoying the sea air. The location is unknown, but given the steps and access to the water I suspect that that will not last long.

Trim Castle, Trim, Co. Meath.
Description: We have a relatively early O'Dea photograph today. I am hoping that the castle looks better nowadays than it did in 1938. Talking with colleagues recently we all noted the grim lack of "Limericks" on this stream over the past few months. That is going to change today, VIRTUAL STICKY BUNS are on offer to anyone who pens a Limerick with the word TRIM finishing the first line, over to you! Photographer: James P.

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

Dublin. with a ship that looks remarkable similar to the ferry that took the troops and equipment from Cork 50 years earlier.

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?

Song of the lonely boatman
Description: This lovely scene vies with yesterdays visit to Claudy in County Derry for sheer beauty! The wee boat on the rocks looks lonesome while its colleague appears to be under full sail in the background. Given the stillness of the water it seems unlikely that it will be getting much wind to fill that sail? By the way is that what they would call a "lateen"???

View of Turlough Park with round tower in background, Castlebar, Co.Mayo
Description: I know that we have had two Wynne images already this week but you cannot have too much of a good thing. There is a freshness and sense of place to these images that just makes me feel at home with them. Today's shot shows a grand house with a round tower and ruins of a monastery in the background.

Maynooth Mystery

Ida, sweet as apple cider
Description: We're taking a swift detour from Clonmel to Waterford (I think) today. This is the Ida. Wildly out of focus for a Poole glass plate, but that's surely to be forgiven as the boat is in motion. What was the Ida? Why all the flags? And where was it off to, loaded with enough people on board to give Elfin Safety a heart attack? Also, 1901-1954? We can surely do better than this? Flickroonies laugh at such a wide date range... derangedlemur points us to this fantastic article by Andrew Doherty of tidesandtalesDOTie which suggests that this image dates to c.1898. Likely it was before c.1905 when the paddle steamer Ida left the service of the Waterford Steamship Company. Before being apparently broken up in 1908.... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Likely before c.1905 (last sailing).

The posers and the dog.

[https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] was first to identify this as the Woodenbridge Hotel in County Wicklow. Also/fomerly known as Wooden Bridge Inn or Putland Arms Hotel, the fashions on show would seem to suggest that this was captured towards the middle/end of the 1860-1880s range...

High and dry on a rocky shore.
Description: A Mason image to begin this weeks postings. Specifically, a maritime scene, with what seems a familiar headland in the background(?) The many boats and fishing vessels grounded during low tide gives the men a chance to carry out checks and repairs. The breakwater seems more natural stone than a man made construction.

The Wheatly Tomb, St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin
Description: To one of my favourite places in Dublin now, and one of those magnificent monuments to commemorate the great and the good. How great and good the deceased was remains to be discovered - but the monument is impressive! As per today's inputs (and Richard Whately's Wikipedia entry), while his works were impressive, it seems the personality of the man himself was something of an acquired taste.

Loo Bridge, Co. Kerry (and no toilet humour please?)
Description: Yet another wonderful Royal plate from Mr. French today with a valley scene from Glenflesk, Co. Kerry. Loo Bridge in Glenflesk looks to have been the centre of activity in the area at that time but I for one never heard of it! What was the bridge used for and does it still stand? And the answer is that, while no longer in use (as a rail line, station and bridge at least), much of the structures we see here still remain. Another shot mercifully left out of our "no longer standing" album :) Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900.

The castle at the Salmon Leap!
Description: This lovely Royal plate image from Mr. French of Leixlip Castle with the Liffey in the foreground to start the week with a bang. The Liffey along that stretch and down along through Lucan and the Strawberry Beds is just beautiful with all the big houses and the fine land to green the view! Based on some fine shots of the same view from [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] it would seem that it is the trees that "green the view" today. And at least partially obscure the castle. The boat house is still visible and extant however....

Down the old bog road
Description: Yesterday we had a couple bringing home the turf and today we have people living on the bog with a straight road leading off to the distant hills. The cataloguer seems to have been under the impression that the people were leaning on a rick of turf but it looks more like their home to me! Do you agree and where is it? Whether temporary or otherwise, the general consensus is that this is a picture dwelling. And O Mac has expertly pinpointed it to the road between Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey in Connemara....

Bringing home the turf
Description: What appears picturesque today was a reality not that long ago for many people in remote areas of Ireland. Neddy the donkey was the chief source of power for transport. The creels on the back of the donkey would indicate terrain that was too rough for a cart or that the family were to poor to afford the cart. Times change? Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia for the (generally favoured) suggestion that we are in County Antrim, not too far from a relatively recent image of what appears to be some of the same people....

Ladies in crinolines with parasol in stereo - twice as nice!
Description: This crisp, clear and beautiful image from the Stereo Pairs Collection shows a very attractive building with two ladies in crinolines standing outside. The building itself is quite distinctive which should make it easy to identify? Unfortunately I don't see any dogs :-( The general consensus is that this is St. Anne’s Hydro and Turkish Bath in Blarney, County Cork. Which, according to Archiseek at least, dates to 1870, and narrows our range a bit. The building, including the clock we see here, is just about still standing....

Tattersall's Hotel, Cunnamulla, ca. 1895

Description: Exterior view of the two-storeyed Tattersall's Hotel, Cunnamulla, featuring the verandahs and signage of the building. A group of people pose in the street for the photograph. The township of Cunnamulla was created by Cobb & Co. on the third of September 1879, when the first coach drove through from Bourke. Today it is the only surviving south-west town along the original route.

Description: This Cable Station in County Kerry is bathed in sunshine and looking spruce! In the days when telegrams were the principal long range method of communication working in this building would have been the centre of activitiy. Waterville in good weather would be just heavenly.... .... Except this probably isn't Waterville.

When spacemen walked the earth!
Description: This Morning Mary loves when visitors to Ireland who have not been here before come calling so that they can be taken to see the wonders of Newgrange! The workmanship on the enormous stones would be impressive in today's context but given that they were carried out more than 5,000 years ago they are phenomenal!

Mansion, Gorey, Co. Wexford
Description: The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this photo was what makes a house a mansion? Wikipedia provides the following definition: "A mansion is a large dwelling house. The word itself derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio "dwelling", an abstract noun derived from the verb manere "to dwell". The English word manse originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way (compare a Roman or medieval villa)". What can you tell us about this particular mansion? The general consensus (prompted initially by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet]) is that this is a view of Courtown House near Gorey, County Wexford. Demolished in the mid-20th century, this ex-mansion is now another entry in our "no longer standing" album.....

Possibly a general view of Malahide, Co. Dublin
Description: There seems to be a hole in the road and there seems to be at lease four men looking into it, so not much has changed in Ireland over the last 100 years! Our catalogue directs us to the suburban town of Malahide which is to the North of Dublin, is the catalogue correct? In short: It is :) :D Photographer: Unknown Collection: Eason Photographic Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1939. Likely in first decade or two of range. Perhaps c.1910s.

Third Lock, River Lagan, Belfast, Co. Antrim
Description: From Apostles of Temperance in Cork to locks on the Lagan near Belfast for todays image. The Eason collection has some interesting and educational images, and for me this was an eye-opener - as I never knew that the Lagan was managed and made navigable above the tide mark! When did all this take place and is it still in use? With thanks to [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet], [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] and the Wikipedia article on the 'Lagan Navigation', I am further educated on this section of waterway. Seemingly it opened in the mid-18th century, and was viable until the mid-20th century. Closed in the 1950s, it seems that at least part of the lock system (and these lock keepers cottages) have been restored and given new life since. I wonder what the man pictured would have made of it all....

Thatched cottages and flats on the bicycle - oh bliss!
Description: To end the week where we have had doubles, rebels and Gandelows we now have a truly charming Eason shot. A man mends a bicycle outside the door of a thatched cottage with a young girl in a pinny standing behind him watching the photographer at work. In the background is a town or city marked by a high spire dominating the landscape. There is no doubt but this scene has changed drastically in the meantime, if we can locate it(?) Rory Sherlock was quick with the location and subject: Old Town in Letterkenny, County Donegal. The spire in the background is that of the Cathedral of St. Eunan and St. Columba, which opened in 1901....

Is that a Ganlow or a Gondola I see before me?
Description: Those of you who are not "in the know" are wondering at that heading but the boat under the arch of the bridge is known as a "Ganlow" and allegedly they were based on the Gondola!

This image with trams, pedestrians and activity in abundance provides a lovely contrast to the first!

So, for safety's sake, I've gone back to the ever reliable Mr. Poole for this mornings offering! Just in case there was any doubt about what was being advertised in this (extensive) window display, we have confirmation that Maclean's (note placement of the "a" and the apostrophe mister sign-writer) Opas Powder was an antacid marketed from at least the mid 1930s. In this case it is being heavily promoted by Curtis' pharmacy on Waterford's Barrack Street.... Photographer: A. H.

Description: Most Poole photographs have been carefully posed but this is a "live" cricket match in full swing. Some may feel that cricket it about as exciting and interesting as paint drying but for the enlightened it is a game of great skill and tactics and a wonderful way to pass a sunny day. The general consensus is that this image was taken at the grounds of Cork County Cricket Club on the Mardyke in Cork city. Probably in the first decade or so of the 1900s-1950s range....

Or, at least, Niall McAuley and BeachcomberAustralia can.

Enniscorthy, Castleboro - river and steps
Description: A big house near Enniscorthy in County Wexford taken from the level of the river. There is mention of "steps" but I cannot see them! Can you? As confirmed by today's contributors (and indeed by Wikipedia), Castleboro House was one of the many estate houses which did not survive the 1920s intact. While I can just about make out the steps (after some prompting) in this shot, it doesn't look like they've survived either. In fact, the water feature and falls seem to be all but gone also.....

Description: A cave deep in the woods would always hold the attraction of exploration and the thrill of danger, especially for the young at heart! Where is this one and has the scene changed much in the last 150 years? Rory_Sherlock was first to identify this as 'Badger's Cave', one of the colourfully named features of Blarney Castle and Gardens, and one of at least two caves beneath the old castle itself.

This view may not be as iconic as the Skelligs, but nonetheless it provides a pleasing vista with sea, sky, mountains and a safe harbour. Following the tremendous achievement of the Irish Rugby team on Saturday in beating World Champions New Zealand Ireland can bask in the teams reflected glory for a wee while! And indeed it was from the antipodes that good news came again on this photo. With BeachcomberAustralia quickly identifying this as Bray harbour. The date range was refined also, with [https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet] pointing us to this Bray Cualann Historical Society webpage which tells us that the lighthouse pictured stood between the late 1890s and 1950s.

Hard to starboard
Description: From the far North West we are propelled to the South East to view the good ship SS Fastnet. Mr Poole was a great man for photographing sea going vessels, the date range here is made for “narrowing” though we have found in the past that these ships can have very long lives themselves.

Sure it would take me hours to walk over that stuff...
Description: The catalogue description of this image suggests that it is a man standing on a castle, but the benefits of "Super Dooper Mega Zoom" (technical term) show that this is not the case. The man is sitting on a fairly modern building looking out over tidal flats with a town in the background. I suspect that this will take some time to identify but then the Lemur, Sharon or Niall are just as likely to make a liar out of me! Where is it? And, with his first (and critical) hypothesis, John McK has established that this is Bundoran, County Donegal. Thanks John!

At last - A dog accompanied by a woman!
Description: 'Painting by Sir John Lavery for Mrs. McEnery, Kilmoganny' is the catalogue title for this shot from the Poole Collection. Featuring a dog allowing itself to be held by a young lady it looks a really lovely portrait. I am no dog expert but it appears to me to be a Pekinese which would have been quite uncommon at that time. Who is the subject and can we date the painting itself? Based on inputs from Niall McAuley, BeachcomberAustralia, and sharon.corbet the general consensus is Sir John Lavery painted this in the 1910s. If so it could well be a portrait of his step-daughter Alice Trudeau (born c.1904), and she later commissioned a copy herself, as Mrs. McEnery. Some time after he marriage to a Jack McEnery in 1930. Seems imminently plausible to us Marys..... Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: Catalogue range c.1901-1954. Original painting perhaps c.1910s (Alice as child).

Apart from connecting the statue, its subject and its inscription to our recent Vartry Works photos, the main learnings here were from Niall McAuley. On date.

But the last shall be first and the first shall be last: May the Lord in His mercy be kind to Belfast
Description: A monument to Sir E. J. Harland in Belfast takes us up north of the border (which is in the news) today, and gives me an opportunity to quote from Maurice Craig's wonderful poem. Harland is a name that is synonymous with Belfast - but I confess to know very little about the bearer of that name, can you enlighten me? And so I have learned something - including his apparent like of the odd cigar :) While Edward James Harland is perhaps best known for his shipbuilding activities, his Wikipedia article also lists him as a politician. And he was Mayor and later MP for Belfast for a period. This statue was one of several by Thomas Brock on the grounds of Belfast's city hall. Though in a broad catalogue range (1860s-1910s), this image was likely captured within a few years of the statue's unveiling - in mid-1903.....

The ruin and the cross
Description: For most of our old photographs the vegetation will have increased in the area since it was taken but in this case hope and suspect that it has actually reduced. An old overgrown building, in a marshy, reed covered field with a distinctive high cross should be easy to find? With lightening reflexes, O Mac identified this as the church and high cross of the monastery (founded in the 6th century) on Inishmacsaint, Lough Erne. The chaps at the base of the cross really do give some sense of scale....

A truly institutional institution!
Description: To the Stereo Pairs collection today, and to a vast institution somewhere. These great building projects were intended to provide treatment and care for people in a region and have lasted for many years though few remain in their original use to this day. Where are we and is it still standing? Niall McAuley and derangedlemur combine to tell us that this is longer standing. While it was standing (for 100 years between the 1820s and the 1920s), it was the "District Lunatic Asylum" on the Falls Road in Belfast. Originally built to designs by architects William Murray and Francis Johnston (the latter perhaps best known for his work on Dublin's GPO), it was demolished to make way for a new maternity hospital in the early 20th century....

Description: The King's Cottage in Örebro, probably built in the 16th century. According to tradition, the future King Karl IX stayed in a guestroom in the building when visiting Örebro in 1580, since Örebro castle was under rebuilding.

Main Street, Longford on a market day
Description: Starting this week with a Lawrence image of Main Street, Longford on a busy market day! I love shots like this with a wealth of detail, lots of people, animals, carts and produce on display. It will be difficult to date this from the evidence on view but we can enjoy all the atmosphere that Mr. French has so beautifully captured. The general concensus on date is that this image was captured after 1901. The rationale being that, while we can see the shop of J&M Farrell (brothers) in this image and the 1911 census return, at the time of the 1901 census, John and Michael Farrell were "serving their time" separately in other retail businesses on the same street. Hence this image surely dates after 1901 - as, at that time, they hadn't yet set up shop together..... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Almost certainly after c.1901 (businesses visible).

Interestingly, the NIAH entry the guys point us to suggest this was part of a corn mill, while the historic OSI map puts it alongside a saw mill. Whatever the case, while the mills are long gone, the weir itself clearly remains.... Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914.

Description: The title on today's image from the Clonbrock Collection could be a really difficult clue from a cryptic crossword! "Wellington from F's room. Fishing" could easily be 12 down or perhaps 3 across? It is a photograph this time whereas most Clonbrock images up to now have been glass plates so after 70 million views we can begin with something different! There general consensus is that "Wellington" is Wellington College in Berkshire, and that the "F" who has a room here is perhaps Francis Marcus Crofton - grandson of Edith Dillon.....
