Summary

Welcome to a new week and a new set of NLI photographs for your attention. Today we start with a shot from the Mason Collection showing a ship moored at Rosslare Harbour...Following input from B-59 ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) (on the dates for the ship's service) and Sean ( /photos/swordscookie/ ) (on the dates for the pier construction), we've updated our range to a likely 1906-1910. Thanks also to beachcomberaustralia ( /photos/beachcomberaustralia/ ) , John Spooner ( /photos/johnspooner/ ) , and O Mac ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) for the extra background on the vessel, the route it serviced, and what happened to it later in its life. (Including its time as a "hospital ship" during the Great War). Sharon ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) stirred-things-up by pointing out that this image is attributed in our catalogue to two photography studios: both Mason and Lawrence. But for now we'll assume there was nothing nefarious afoot :)...Contributor: Thomas H. Mason. .Collection: Mason Photographic Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Collection/vtls000314178 ) . .Date: ca. 1890-1910 (but likely after 1906)..NLI Ref: M22/47/4 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000537982 ) . .You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
