An Art Deco building, it was designed by Crick and Furse, the firm responsible for designing many of the Art Deco theatres around Sydney. As The Victory, the cinema screened mostly action movies. This changed when renamed The Rapallo, though neither this nor objections from The National Trust prevented the demolition of the theatre in 1984.

Kate in pensive mood
Description: On our bookshelves at home was a book, "Portrait of a Lady".

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”.

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. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Collection, Waterford Date: ca. Wednesday, 16 October 1907 NLI Ref: POOLEWP 1717a You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Georgian Decay
Description: What was once a common enough sight in Dublin is well captured here! A gap in the teeth of a fine Georgian terrace, where one or more of the once grand houses has been torn down. Its partners on either side are shored up with timber baulks to save them from the same fate. Whereabouts is it, and what does the street view tell us now?

They're Peelers not Sojers
Description: Mr. John A. Costello looks decidedly discombobulated as he is escorted by Church and State to some event in Donegal. The title suggests that he has a guard of honour of soldiers, but those are actually some of An Garda Síochána's finest. Their uniform, with the closed collars, should be some guide to the latest date this could have been taken? Where, why and what?

All fall down...
Description: There is something winterish and depressing about todays image from Arthur Henri. Dull and misty atmosphere and a crop that looks as though it has been burned by the frost and is now wilted would not cheer one up? Dangan, Thomastown is the place and we even have a date but what else is there to find out about this? Photographer: A. H.
