These Text Appearing After Image: silures present us, in tbeir long anal fins, with the primarycharacter of the Silurina ; but in all other respects showa marked resemblance to Cyclopium in the circle of thePimelodlnce, and to Astroblepus among the Aspredince :like these, and all other of their representatives, the eyesare remarkably small—indeed,so minute, that they appearas mere specks in the skin,— and their situation is nearlyon the top of the crown : the dorsal fin is single, trian-gular, and placed near the crown, which is thick andobtuse : the mouth is large, and the gape obliquely ver-tical : there are no dorsal or pectoral spines: the tail ishardly longer than the body ; and the four cirri are sovery short, as not to be so long as the head. Now, itis to these two last characters that we must call the na-turalists attention.

The Smyths?
Description: Our catalogue tells us that this lovely family group was commissioned by Mrs. Smyth, 44 Poleberry, Waterford, which should help you with your deliberations. I always look forward to reading the comments on a photo like this one. It is fantastic that you can discover so much information about the people in the photos we feature here on Flickr, it really does bring them alive. +++ UPDATE +++ Well, this family photograph led to a lively chase up and down Poleberry in Waterford, trying to match likely families, and likely dogs in online dog license records. But the main problem is the “unusual” house numbering of Poleberry. Our Bernard Healy is not usually given to cast asparagus at anyone, but even he was driven to this extreme: “I think we have to conclude that the census enumerator was drunk, or the houses were re-numbered at some stage”.

And the plot thickens...
Description: Mr. Seumas O’Neill of Cashel, German Plot prisoner of Durham Gaol. A fine, handsome young man in semi-military garb with a Nationalist badge on his lapel, locked up in a British gaol. Who was Seumas, and what was the German Plot? What happened to him thereafter? Yesterday’s virtual trip through Germany, Switzerland, and Austria was most entertaining, and a welcome relief from the trials and tribulations of the pandemic, whose name must not be mentioned!

When the dark cow leaves the moor
Description: Thomas MacDonagh and friend in a really pleasant, casual portrait. One thing we can be sure of is that this was taken no later than 1916, and as MacDonagh is mature, probably some time after 1900. Who is his friend, and what can we find out about this photograph?

A fine set of fetlocks!
Description: Captain W.J. Baird, Aide de Camp to the Lord Lieutenant sits astride a really fine looking horse in this carefully posed image from the Poole Collection. Now we know the name of the soldier so now we want to know is the name of the horse??? +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks everyone, for confirmation that Captain James Baird was aide-de-camp to Lord Wimborne, Lord Lieutentant in Ireland, and that he was in that post in 1917 (newspaper reports). O Mac suggests Busoni as the horse's name, but we'd need some hard evidence. We're a tough crowd. Oh, and we always love to see John Spooner waxing lyrical about movable boudoirs! Photographer: A. H.

As, moreover, the water had to be divided over severalquarters of the town, a number of smaller castella, and indeed awhole system of canals and reservoirs (247 of such are counted),became necessary, the excellent management of which, by anumerous staff, is a brilliant proof of the practical capacities ofthe Romans.

Agrippa alone is said to have placed 105 jets.Home still has the reputation of possessing a greater number offountains than any other city in the world. The above-mentioned piscinae could also be constructed on alarger scale, in which case they became real reservoirs. In orderto keep the water pure and cool a vault was constructed overthe basin.

Comrades in arms sharing the pain.
Description: “Injured soldier being cared for by the Red Cross on the South Western Front during the Irish Civil War”! A long title for a photograph that tells a tale from 98 years ago somewhere in Munster. The wounded man appears to be in considerable pain and is being held and comforted by his friend and colleague. Two things that stand out for me are the makeshift Red Cross armbands on the two medics, and the old-fashioned kit bag seemingly holding their first aid supplies! Photographer: W. D.
