Katharine’s hair style is surely one that many ladies would be happy to have now, after four months of no hair salons being open?

Oh look? Mr. Nolan's new truck!
Description: Mr. Joseph A. Nolan, Coal Merchant purchased a bone shaker if ever there was one. Back in 1922, this must have been the wonder of the age, and was probably badly needed in Waterford with its many hills. In my neck of the woods, the horse and cart lasted until well into the 1960s. This looks a solid piece of work, and what can we find out about it? Photographer: A. H.

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”.

Smiles all round for a good beginning!
Description: A lovely smiley wedding group from Mr. Poole to start the week on a positive note! The happy couple, the witnesses, and the clergy all have broad smiles, while the bride has a firm hold on her man. Ordered by Mr. Richard Siggins of 28 The Glen in Waterford. What can we find out about them? +++ UPDATE +++ We found out ridiculously fabulous information about them, and much of the heavy lifting was done by Bernard Healy! Meet engine driver Richard Siggins and Emily Cozens, both of 28 The Glen, Waterford. They got married in the Cathedral in Waterford on 23 October 1944, and their witnesses were William Siggins and Mary Josephine Cozens. The presiding priest was Fr. John O'Connor, so just the stray smiling priest yet to be identified...

Happy Hatoriffic(ish) weekend to you all.
Description: A group of three, two ladies with fine hats on board. And a gentleman sitting down while the ladies stand? Miss Nolan of Brownswood, Carrick-on-Suir was the lady who made the commission, but is she in the image, and what was the occasion? +++ UPDATE +++ Looks as if this one will have to simmer on the back burner for a while. No Brownswood Nolans in either the 1901 or 1911 censuseses. And Evening Mary could find nothing in any online newspapers. We shall sit back (if we can get a chance to sit down with these young feller-me-lads hogging all the seating) and await developments... Photographer: A. H.
