Summary

We are staying north of the border today, in Portstewart to be precise. Having had a good look at the photo I am struck by the three hard working (is that the correct word?) men on the middle pier, they seem to be very relaxed and laid back. I am expecting a very precise date range for this photo...Among the commetary, insights and dating suggestions for this image is confirmation (from the StreetView ( https://www.google.com/maps/@55.1873556,-6.7199348,3a,42y,327.39h,93.74t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suWG8PTHtXX8hBn1mrUjoLA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en ) provided by B-59 ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) ) that the buildings in the middle of this image have been replaced or otherwise unrecognisable. Thankfully the buildings on the left of Harbour Place and the right of the Promenade remain. One of the other main takeaways from today is how excited we all are for tomorrow's launch of the Photo Detectives exhibition ( https://www.facebook.com/NationalLibraryofIreland/posts/10159391458300038 ) One more sleep indeed :)...Photographer: Robert French..Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Collection/vtls000313414 ) ..Date: Catalogue range c.1880-1900..NLI Ref: L_ROY_05579 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000041880 ) ..You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
