I’ve never seen this castle so I don’t know if it still stands, but the arrangement of a fortified tower OUTSIDE the walls of a military barracks seems counterproductive? An interesting scene with a sentry at the gate and a gentleman speaking to him, while along the wall on both sides are posters. I wish that this had been a Royal plate and they might have been more readable?

W.J. Brennan of Market Street, Tramore may have been the dedicated follower of fashion in 1905, but in 2021 he seems the perfect caricature of “Burlington Bertie from Bow”! We know the date, the name, the place. So what more can we find out about W.J. “Bertie” Brennan?

Boerenzwaluw - Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica)

Checking the archives, I realized I have been photographing barn swallows from up (very) close on this very same spot for 8 years now.

This year's very cold spring means numbers are still low compared to other years.

The Poole Collection is surely the gift that keeps on giving, and today’s image of the “Dartmouth Castle” taking on passengers at Cappoquin, Co. Waterford is yet another pleasant surprise. A paddle steamer at a jetty, taking on ladies and gentlemen in their finery for an outing along the river on a fine day, must have been just heavenly? Let’s see what you can find out about it...
