Summary

Good morning everyone, the excitement is palpable, the activity is corybantic, preparations are nearing an end, only two more sleeps until the opening of our Flicker exhibition "Photo Detectives" ( http://www.nli.ie/en/udlist/current-exhibitions.aspx?article=eebd3ce2-8175-4294-acc2-e683d7137928 ) .Keep tuned for further news and updates. ..Getting back to the days task, we have a very nice photo from the dead center of Belfast for your perusal, all contributions and comments welcome...Other than puns and poetry (and confirmation that the fountain is now more flower-bed than water-feature), the main learning today was that this fountain was built by the Sun Foundry around 1880 - helping condense the likely date range quite a bit.......Photographer: Robert French..Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Collection/vtls000313414 ) ..Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Possibly shortly after c.1880 (fountain built)..NLI Ref: L_CAB_05567 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000334283 ) ..You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
