This fine trio are Mr J. Malone and his son, accompanied by their terrier who was in full voice by the looks of things, all pictured at Ashtown Train Station, Dublin. The photographer James O'Dea had obviously known Mr Malone for some time, as we have O'Dea photos of Mr Malone from 1938...blackpoolbeach ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackpoolbeach/ ) discovered that the little house at extreme left of this photo is still there ( http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Ashtown,+Cabra,+Dublin,+Ireland&hl=en&ll=53.375383,-6.332803&spn=0.001923,0.004136&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=15.634187,33.881836&oq=ashtown+dublin&hnear=Ashtown,+Cabra,+Dublin+7,+Ireland&t=m&z=18&layer=c&cbll=53.375283,-6.332767&panoid=gSpiDLtpk3PE4K2BgqOi-w&cbp=12,308.73,,0,11.91 ) .....Date: Sunday, 24 April 1960..NLI Ref.: ODEA 20/1 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000304961 )
Images from our photo collections that show those magnificent men (and women) in their flying, choo choo-ing, and driving machines... Oh, and we've cheated, we're adding boats and ships, jaunting cars and carriages, trams too and bicycles - we're completely shameless. So, basically any form of transport - air, sea, land - with the exception of two human feet...
