  • Today we visit the Clonbrock Collection for a shot of Edith Dillon and her husband with a pair of shooting devices. She holds a camera while he holds a pistol and they are gathered beside paper targets fixed to a wall. Sir William Mahon (5th baronet) lived with his wife Edith (née Dillon) at Castlegar House in Ballinasloe. While this image could also have been taken at the nearby Clonbrock estate, we've decided to map it to there (mainly for a bit of variation on the theme :) ).....

  • 1860-1930 gives us a date window of 70 years and yet there may be nothing in this photo which will allow us to significantly narrow that window? I am confident that we will get the location. In terms of location, it is unequivocally established that this is St Catherine's Church (CoI) in Ahascragh, County Galway. (A church and churchyard which the Dillons and ourselves have visited before). In terms of date, based in particular on inputs from Rory Sherlock and Bernard Healy, the guys have been able to more than half the 70-year range to perhaps 30-years (likely 1870s/80s/90s). This is based primarily what we see (and don't see) on the left-handside of the image. Specifically, the scrolled memorial dates to the early 1870s. So we must be after that. And this memorial was moved, and a new trancept was built, before the mid-1900s. So we must be before then.... Fógra: There will be a guided tour of the Photo Detectives Exhibition on Wednesday next 29th November at 11 am. This tour will take approx. 45 minutes and is free to the public. It will help bring this outstanding exhibition to life for those who attend. Please pass the word to any who may be interested?

  • Today is the day, the Photo Detectives exhibition opens at 12.30. I found a to-do-list on the other Marys desk earlier. It read: "Tan / Nails / Hair / Pedicure / Shoes / Bag / Dress / Hat? / Coat / Umbrella?". (A woman's work is never done :) ) Now, getting back to the knitting, our late eighteenth and early nineteenth century photos often feature elegant people in sumptuous surroundings. However, this photo I feel shows the lot of the majority of the Irish people in stark focus. I wonder what happened to the two boys? What part did they play in the formation of our nation? And, while some of us were distracted by the #PhotoDetectives exhibition, the ever dutiful O Mac held down the fort, and filled-in several of the blanks on this image. It is possible that the people pictured are (or are at very least neighbours of) the Finnertys of Kilglass near Clonbrock County Galway. They could well be pictured in this previous image of the local school. OMac is confident that the house still stands - near the junction of the road to Ballyforan....

Marking a family's tragedy the gravestone of Jane and Jane Alice Purves
Marking a family's tragedy the gravestone of Jane and Jane Alice Purves

  • Geographical coordinates of the taken: 53°23'55"N - 8°19'40"W
  • When deaths in infancy and childbirth were a regular and real threat to the lives of both women and children, families had tragedies all too frequently. Jane and Jane Alice are remembered on this fine obelisk - but where is/was it and who were the Purves's? As beachcomberaustralia notes, the catalogue entry reads in full as below. So there may be initial investigative clues here...  Gravestone of Jane and Jane Alice Purves - reads "Sacred to the memory of Jane, wife of William Adams Purves, Sydney, New South Wales. Born 14th April 1851, died 26th October, 1875 and of Jane Alice, their infant daughter, born 21st October, died 14th December And so, with input in particular from beachcomberaustralia and O Mac, we learned quite a bit about the tragic family involved. William Adams Purves (of Sydney, Australia) married Jane Allan (of Cavamana, Galway) in June 1872. Jane gave birth to a daughter, Jane Alice, in October 1875, but unfortunately she (the mother) died a few days later. Almost certainly from complications arising after childbirth. Adding to the heartbreak, baby Jane Alice died just 7 weeks later still, in December 1875. Both mother and daughter (and seemingly eventually father) were buried in this plot. While the guys tell us that there is a family memorial marker in the famous Greyfriars cemetery in Edinburgh, Scotland, their resting place - captured in this Dillon image - is in Ahascragh, Co Galway. Links, images, register entries from Bernard Healy, and other amazing investigative artefacts are linked by the guys in the comments below....

  • Miss Crowe and Mr Gildea with their pupils at Kilglass National School, Ahascragh, Co.Galway Here we are again (unwittingly) at the National School in Kilglass. Sharon found both Mr Gildea and Mr Miss Crowe in the 1901 Census. Mr Gildea's wife Ellen T. is listed as an Ex National Teacher, I wonder was she in Kilglass school before Miss Crowe? Sharon also inventively provides a link to the census detailing the children of school going age of the area, many of whom must be in this photo.

  • At a time of year when darkness greets the early morning riser, and accompanies the worker home from her/his labours, the greeting above must have been especially provided to cheer us up? While the general location and date have been established in advance, some questions arise from this image! What was the occasion to merit such a felicitous greeting? Is the stone walled avenue still in existence? What was the name of the horse? While I am tempted to say "answers on a postcard please?" we all know what happened the last time I did so we will settle for answers below! And those answers filled in lots of blanks - confirming in particular that the banner was intended to celebrate the marriage of Sir William Henry Mahon (Baronet) to Edith Augusta Dillon (daughter of Lord Clonbrock and Lady Augusta Crofton/Dillon). We are - by this stage - very familiar with this extended family, and are delighted with the surprise invite to the big day :) When married, Sir William would have been pushing 50, and Edith in her latish 20s. They had 5 kids - several of whom we have met before. Please do take the time to check-out the other images and descriptions of the wedding that the community offers below.....
