Summary

Major fail yesterday morning, uploading a good photo of a Marconi Room, but not aboard the S.S. Coningbeg! Hoping to make amends with this shot that is definitely the S.S. Coningbeg, photographed sailing into Waterford. Sign in background (at right), "Direct picturesque route to Dublin" was a help to Niall McAuley ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley/ ) in identifying this spot as:."taken looking North from Adelphi Quay in Waterford (Street View ( https://maps.google.ie/maps?hl=en&ll=52.260065,-7.103639&spn=0.00132,0.006706&t=h&z=18&layer=c&cbll=52.260065,-7.103639&panoid=VczkfHTJgSQ6aFae4LvRtg&cbp=11,355.95,,0,-1.94 ) )"..Date: Wednesday, 20 August 1913..NLI Ref.: P_WP_2167 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/P_WP_2167 )

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...
