Mrs Farmer is not dressed for farming
Description: Having discovered who now lives behind the blue door on the Milltown Road, we now discover that Mrs Farmer from Clonmel was an elegant lady. If she was the wife of a farmer named Farmer, then she did not farm in that elegant outfit! +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks to Sharon Corbet for revealing at lot more about “Mrs Farmer”. Mary Constance Farmer (née Barry) was married to retired Captain Langford Llanwarne Farmer. They had married in Kanturk in 1903, and had two sons Arthur and Frank. Mary was aged around 40 in this photograph. And speaking of “revealing”, if you read down through the comments, you may be discombobulated by the discussion of knickers. To see why, zoom in on the catalogue Mary Farmer is perusing... Photographer: A. H.

RMS Mauretania, merchant ship, ca.1915
Description: RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett for the British Cunard Line. She made her maiden voyage on 16 November 1907 and was the world's largest ship until the completion of RMS Olympic in 1911. In 1915 she was ordered by the British government to serve as a troop ship to carry British soldiers during the Gallipoli Campaign. This photo is from around that period and shows her painted in wartime 'Dazzle Camouflage.'

Lean, mean and bowler hatted
Description: This fine group of sportsmen taken by Mr. Poole is a bit of a puzzle. If they were oarsmen, there would surely be an oar or two on display. Fooballers would have a ball or two to play with. Hurlers would have hurleys, but these lads have what looks like a telescope? Who were they? What was their sport, and what are those devices the two in the front rank are holding? +++ UPDATE +++ Well, safe to say that everybody had a good time yesterday with this one! The spikes on the shoes certainly prove running/athletics. But were these chaps fire brigade men? Are those implements fire hose nozzles? Can't see this one being left to lie fallow, so bated breath here at Library Towers for a definite solution! Photographer: A. H.

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
Description: This is allegedly a bust of Denis Florence MacCarthy. Now I suspect that many of us plebs never heard of this gentleman, so one wonders who was he to be preserved for all time in marble? It is a fine-looking sculpture with excellent detail, so this is a particularly singular honour for Denis. Google search on the way!!!! +++ UPDATE +++ No idea why our catalogue record had a question mark after Bust of Denis Florence MacCarthy? as it quite clearly states what it is on the tin, or in this case, marble plinth. Thanks to Suck Diesel for the list of the great and good of Irish society in 1882, who came together to contribute to a memorial fund to perpetuate “in a fitting manner the memory of this distinguished Irish poet”. We’re assuming this bust was the outcome of that fund? And we now know that Mr MacCarthy (1817-1882) was an Irish poet, translator, and biographer, born in Sackville Street Lower (now O’Connell Street), Dublin.

John Tyndall, half-length portrait, facing front
Description: This image of John Tyndall has so much information contained within regarding sartorial, tonsorial and “barborial”, all denoting the fashions of a time! Who was John Tyndall? Did he write songs as well, or was he a wielder of the sword rather than the pen? +++ UPDATE +++ Turns out he was more of a wielder of the mind, rather than sword or pen. There was some initial argument as to whether this was, in fact, John Tyndall – based on hair parting, facial features, facial hair, apparent age in various portraits, and the name J. Glastrich on the carte-de-visite itself. However, the consensus is that this is indeed physicist John Tyndall, professor of physics at London’s Royal Institution from 1853 to 1887. He was a very interesting fellow. Domhnall Sioradáin provided us with a succinct biography: Tyndall, from Leighlinbridge, Carlow, is remembered in Cork, in the Tyndall National Institute. He left Carlow at 18 to work for the Ordnance Survey around Munster, before moving to Preston. He is noted for his explanation of why the sky is blue (Rayleigh scattering), heat absorption by CO2 in the atmosphere, and the measurement of aerosols by scattering (Tyndall effect).

Bunlin Bridge, Co. Donegal
Description: We had another personality lined up for today, but since yesterday’s post I have The Rising of the Moon playing live in my head, so we’re off to Donegal! Bunlin Bridge somewhere in that beautiful county looks like quite a feat to create the causeway and build the bridge. Is it still as picturesque today? +++ UPDATE +++ A big thank you to all of our usual suspects for finding out, and more importantly, for telling us that the cottage, the mill wheel, and the humpback bridge are sadly, long gone. The cottage was Widow Algoe’s, and Tuck Mill was a flax mill. They unearthed references to Molly Maguire activity in the area, and open-air masses in the late 1860s. In 1876, the widowed Mrs Algoe was evicted with her six children from the cottage for allegedly cutting some trees, “contrary to the order of” her landlord. She retook possession of her cottage in 1878, perhaps thinking that the assassination of her landlord, Lord Leitrim, might save her. However, the estate's agents evicted her again. And our resident newspaperman, John Spooner discovered that in August 1939, the Londonderry Sentinel newspaper considered it newsworthy that a pair of swans chose this inlet to nest and rear their young – must have been a very slow news month.

Les Corvettes L'Astrolabe Et La Zelee caught in Antarctic ice, watercolour by A. Mayer. (1838)
Description: This watercolour painted by A. Mayer is of the Astrolabe and Zélée caught in Antarctic ice in 1838. The ships were on Jules Dumont d'Urville's Second Voyage of exploration which had left Toulon on 7 September 1837. One of their main objecttives was to discover the South Magnetic Pole but on 1 January 1838, two weeks after sighting their first iceberg, the ships became entangled in a mass of ice. Over the next two months d'Urville led increasingly desperate attempts to find a passage through the ice so that he could reach the desired latitude. d'Urville was eventually forced to give up the search and directed the two ships towards Talcahuano, in Chile, where he established a temporary hospital for the crew members affected by scurvy.

Happy at his work!
Description: This Harry Crosby may not have the money or fame of his current namesake but he looks like a man who is content with his lot. A portrait from the lens of Mr. O'Dea this morning from the signal cabin in Sallins, County Kildare. Full of levers, switches and buttons the signal cabin was not for the faint hearted - except on the West Clare Railway:-) I love the brush handle being used to hang the cap:-) Photographer: James P.
