Summary

Yesterday was a day of remembrance for those who died on the roads over the years so to start with a motoring image seems appropriate This fine Poole shot of or commissioned by Messrs Cooper (with car) starts our week. ..With thanks especially to sharon.corbet ( /photos/129555378@N07/ ) , guliolopez ( /photos/20727502@N00/ ) , O Mac ( /photos/91549360@N03/ ) and swordscookie ( /photos/swordscookie/ ) , we have confirmation of the commissioners of this photo ("Messrs Cooper & Nephews" horticultural chemists), the type of car (a 2-Seater Humber Roadster), and a very likely location (Bessborough Estate, Co Kilkenny). ...Aside: Last evening on TG4 the "Tríd an Lionsa" series featured some of the images from NLI including our "Gap Girls". This will be shown once more tomorrow evening but if you missed it you should be able to view it on the TG4 player ( http://www.tg4.ie/en/player/home/?pid=4614131490001 ) ...Photographer: A. H. Poole..Collection: Poole Photographic Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Collection/vtls000031416 ) ..Date: c. 1 February 1912..NLI Ref: POOLEWP 2373 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000592797 ) ..You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
